From the cover: “Are Christianity and Buddhism just "two paths leading to the top of the same “mountain” — or are they fundamentally irreconcilable? As Buddhism takes root in the West, this question arises with ever greater frequency, sparking intriguing discussions but eluding easy answers. These conversations between Robert Aitken Roshi and Brother David Steindl-Rast offer a fresh approach to the question, one that begins with the intimacy of everyday practice rather than with philosophical and theological concepts — and one that benefits from the respect and good will the two friends bear for each other’s traditions, even as they challenge them. The result of their lively conversations is a surprising amount of the kind of shared experience that helps to build a foundation for honest, fruitful Buddhist-Christian dialogue in the future.”
