Buddhist Christianity: A Passionate Openness

Buddhist Christianity: A Passionate Openness


it really is attainable to be a Christian Buddhist within the context of a common trust that sits particularly flippantly on either traditions. Ross Thompson takes particularly heavily the facets of every religion that appear incompatible with the opposite, no God and no soul in Buddhism, for instance, and the necessity for grace and the historic atonement at the move in Christianity. Buddhist Christianity will be no bland combination of the tamer features of either faiths, yet needs to end result from a wrestling of the seeming incompatibles, permitting each one religion to shake the opposite to its very foundations. the writer lines his own trip in which his desire for either faiths grew to become painfully obvious. He explores the Buddha and Jesus via their teachings and the various groups that movement from them, investigating their varied understandings of pain and incorrect, self and liberation, meditation and prayer, cosmology and God or no longer? He concludes with a daring dedication to either faiths.
