Contributors to this volume explore how Asian influences have been adapted to American desires in literary works and at Buddhist poetics, or how Buddhist practices emerge in literary works.

In Greek, the personal subject of the verb is not normally expressed: But if it is desired to emphasize the subject, then the appropriate pronoun may be used.
What makes this so important in John is that we find a similar usage in the Greek translation of the Old Testament. There we find that the translators used the emphatic form of the speech when they were rendering words spoken by God.The Oneness of God God is a Spirit, and Jesus is the Incarnation of that Spirit.
