Buddha and Christ, perhaps the two most pivotal figures in the history of humankind, each left behind a legacy of teachings and practices that have shaped the lives of billions of people. If they were to meet on the road today, what would each think of the other’s spiritual views and practices? This Nhat Hanh, mystic, Buddhist scholar and activist, brings to Christianity an appreciation of its beauty that could be conveyed only by an outsider. In lucid, meditative prose, he explores the crossroads of compassion and holiness at which the two traditions meet, and he reawakens our understanding of both.
“Thich Nhat Hanh is more my brother than many who are nearer to me in race and nationality, because he and I see things the exact same way.” -Thomas Merton
