Review by James L. Fredericks forthcoming.


Well-versed in the metaphysical nuances of Buddhism and Christianity, Peter Feldmeier draws upon the writings of Christian figures like Meister Eckhart and St. John of the Cross to reflect upon Buddhist concepts and teachings like Buddha-Nature and the Zen Oxherding Pictures.  He emphasizes the spirituality of both faiths and, rather than simply revealing alignments between the two, suggests how dialogue might change one’s way of thinking about one’s own faith.
