Research and Teaching Interests

Malkovsky's area of interest is the doctrinal and spiritual relation of Christianity to other religions.  His area of specialization is the Hindu-Christian encounter. He is the editor of New Perspectives on Advaita Vedanta (Brill, 2000); and the author of The Role of Divine Grace in the Soteriology of Samkaracarya (Brill, 2001). Since 2001 he has been editor of the Journal of Hindu-Christian Studies. His book, God's Other Children: Personal Encounters with Love, Holiness and Faith in Sacred India (2013), which describes his interaction with Muslims, Hindus and Buddhists, won the Huston Smith Prize . He is presently working on a new book on religious interaction, called Under the Banyan Tree: An Inter-religious Approach to Christian Doctrine and Spirituality.
