ABOUT THE AUTHOR: After an
undergraduate degree from Oberlin, John Lankford served as assistant to
a member of Congress. Returning to the academy, he earned masters and
doctoral degrees at the University of Wisconsin and then spent a year as
a post-doctoral fellow at the Union Theological Seminary in New York
City. His professorial career spanned more than thirty years, including
appointments at four academic institutions. After leaving the classroom
he acted as assistant to the Provost at Kansas State University.
Taking early retirement, Lankford settled in the high desert of Northern New Mexico. Lankford devotes his time to writing and community service, including teaching astronomy to elementary school students. A practicing Buddhist, he is active in the affairs of Taos Mountain Sangha and sits a Buddhist meditation retreat for the month of April each year.
After five books and forty-plus articles in the history of religion, higher education and modern science, Lankford turned to fiction. 'Who Sleeps Beneath the Rocks?' and its sequel 'Hide in Plain Sight' were published by James A. Rock & Company in 2008 and draw on years of hiking, camping and river running in the Canyonlands of Utah. 'Of Yahweh and the Buddha' is Lankfordís second novel with Rock & Co.
