A friend of mine and an outstanding scholar, Chuck Prebish, was featured in AAR’s Member Spotlight in February and finds himself in the most recent Tricycle magazine with an interview and a guest blog post (with two more posts to come).
If you’ve been reading lately, you’ll have seen Prebish’s name pop up in my writings on Buddhist ethics, an area in which he is certainly a pioneer. But along with this, Chuck has helped launch the first major ebook project in the world, helping to save students both time and money in accessing the latest materials in religion. He has also been (as the Tricycle interview highlights) the primary pioneer in the study of American Buddhism. You can read about all of this, and more, in Chuck’s wonderful memoir: An American Buddhist Life, which I reviewed here.
