Christians Talk About Buddhist Meditation, Buddhists Talk About Christian Prayer



Christians Talk About Buddhist Meditation, Buddhists Talk About Christian Prayer by Rita M. Gross, Terry Muck

A discussion of the merits and disadvantages of Buddhist and Christian approaches to prayer and meditation. It looks at questions such as: what can a Christian, for example, learn from the mental and physical rigor of Buddhist meditative practice?; and what can a Buddhist learn from traditional Christian prayer? They examine the difficulties and possible loss of religious identity if a Christian or Buddhist mixes thier practice techniques.


A productive new approach to the Christian-Buddhist dialog,... Thought-provoking enough for specialists, these articulate views from informed followers of the other faith are also accessible to general readers. Library Journal Interesting, lively, and clearly articulated. Journal of Buddhist Ethics 8 (2001)
