"This is a labor of love-by Julius Lipner and Graham Schweig in preparing an unfinished manuscript for publication, and by Goswami in bringing specifically the theological work of his guru, Prabhupada, into mainstream academic discourse. I remember discussing this project with Goswami; he worried that his treatment of Prabhupada might discomfit ISKCON devotees and yet delighted in highlighting Prabhupada's brilliant Vaishnava theologizing. I can see Goswami's sweet smile as he ponders this book-a book that now embodies his creative, amazing life."--Rachel Fell McDermott, Professor of Asian and Middle Eastern Cultures, Barnard College
"A Living Theology of Krishna Bhakti is a poignant testimony to the erudition and creativity of Tamal Krishna Goswami and to his dedication to drawing forth fresh insights from the traditions of Gaudiya Vaishnavism and Swami Prabhupada's ISKCON. We learn a great deal about the Vaishnava theological tradition and about how to think theologically about Krishna with attention to history and circumstances, and with sensitivity to the age in which we live. Goswami's work is valuable even in its incompleteness, making the case for a living Hindu theology that speaks to today's world. It is also a tribute to Graham M. Schweig-Tamal Krishna's friend, compatriot, posthumous editor-who brought the work into print and also offers concluding insights that humbly round out Goswami's bold plan."
