Chad M. Bauman is Professor of Religion and Chair of the Department of Philosophy and Religious Studies at Butler University.  His earliest research focused on the interaction of low-caste Christians and Hindus in colonial India, and culminated in a book, Christian Identity and Dalit Religion in Hindu India, 1868-1947, which won the prize for Best Book in Hindu-Christian Studies, 2006-2008, from the Society for Hindu-Christian Studies.  His most recent books are Pentecostals, Proselytization, and Anti-Christian Violence in Contemporary India (Oxford University Press, 2015), Anti-Christian Violence in India (Cornell University Press, 2020), and a co-edited volume, The Routledge Handbook of Hindu-Christian Relations (Routledge, 2021).
