New Ecumenical Research Association
The New Ecumenical Research Association (NEW ERA) has initiated an
ever-widening conversation between theologians and scholars of religion
from all nations, religions, cultures and disciplines. Through
conferences such as the annual conference on "God: t he Contemporary
Discussion," the participants Christians, Buddhists, Muslims, Hindus,
Jews, those of other religions, and non-believers encounter each other to
articulate their insights and uncover hidden sources of unity within the
New ERA also sponsors specialized conferences, notably Christian-Marxist
dialogues and conferences on Sociology of Religion, Religion and Politics,
Religion in the Pacific Era, and Unification Theology and Lifestyle.
There is also an active publishing program to disseminate New ERA's
ecumenical vision to a wider audience.
