The Raft is Not the Shore: Conversations Toward a Buddhist-Christian Awareness Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Meeting for long, midnight conversations in Paris, two poets and prophetic peacemakers — one an exiled Buddhist monk and Zen master, the other a Jesuit priest — explore together the farthest reaches of truth. East and West flow together in this remarkable book, transcriptions of their recorded conversations that range widely over memory, death, and religion; prison and exile; war and peace; Jesus and Buddha; and communities of faith and resistance.

Synopsis:

A new dialogue between the radical Jesuit priest and the Vietnamese Zen master covers a wide range of topics relevant to the Buddhist-Christian relationship, including war, peace, death, Jesus, and the Buddha. Original.
