Scholarly writings on Buddhism are eminently useful because of the included references, the clarity with which scholars write, and most especially the (as disinterested as possible) scholarly perspective itself. This goes doubly for scholars who are also practicing Buddhists. If anyone knows of any other people, alive or passed away, who fall under this particular category (and have published something) and who I have not included on the limited list below, please provide their names.
Prayudh Payutto (Phra Bhramagunabhorn)
Bhante Henepola Gunaratana
Professor Rupert Gethin
I've updated the list; thank you all for your contributions and for any more forthcoming!
