Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

These dialogues between Robert Aitken Roshi, one of the first American-born Zen masters, and Brother David Steindl-Rast, the Roman Catholic monk and hermit, took place during a week-long retreat the two old friends undertook in 1991 in a remote part of the island of Hawaii. Their aim was to approach the dialogue between Buddhism and Christianity in a fresh way, one that takes as its starting point a comparison of the personal experiences of the dialoguers—as a Buddhist and as a Christian, respectively—rather than abstract concepts. The result is the discovery of a surprising amount of common ground—the kind of shared experience that forms a solid foundation for further dialogue.

Synopsis:

These dialogues between American Zen master Robert Aitken Roshi and Catholic monk Brother David Steindl-Rast took place in a remote part of Hawaii in 1991. The result is the discovery of a surprising amount of common ground--shared experience that forms a solid foundation for more dialogue. "Important".--Parabola.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 213-220) and index.
