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 human family.

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.
