Summary and Info
Examining the relations between Buddhism and Christianity in the context of our emerging world civilization, this book illuminates the way Theravada Buddhism does not fit relevant theories about religion and does not match Christian (or Muslim or Jewish or Hindu) belief in God. As the assumptions of the two faiths are so different, how then can they be conceived as relating? The discussion draws upon Chinese and other Far Eastern developments and on views about religion and modernity. Other books by the author include "Doctrine and Argument in Indian Philosophy", "The Religious Experience" and "Worldviews"
