--亚瑟·霍尔德博士

在她的获奖图书,弗吉尼亚巴瑞斯认为什么见解古老的基督教可能有助于对迫在眉睫的生态危机的当代思考。 Speaking on behalf of the awards committee, former GTU dean Arthur Holder noted that the questions Burrus raises about humanity’s place within the cosmos are “both perennial and urgent.” Holder celebrated the author’s inclusion of diverse conversation partners from the ancient world and a “dizzying array of interdisciplinary theories.” He added, “Virginia Burrus’s work represents the best of what we have come to expect from GTU graduates: rethinking traditions with a critical eye and a loving heart for the sake of making the world a better place—or, in this case, daring to hope that in the future there will be a world at all.”

巴瑞斯博士收到裁决书是在宗教和社会的美国学院为圣经文学在圣地亚哥的2019年度会议通过GTU院长乌利亚亚博体育竞技金宣布,2019 11月23日,在GTU校友招待会。 Dr. Bernard Adeney-Risakota (PhD, ’82) of the Insdonesian Consortium for Religious Studies at Universitas Gadjah Mada was awarded an honorable mention for his book,生活在神圣的宇宙中:印度尼西亚与伊斯兰教的未来(厦门大学,耶鲁大学)。
