Description

Buddhism is presented in this book in a succinct form from two points of view: as understood from the Tripitakas— the "three baskets" containing records of the life and teachings of the Buddha; and secondly, as seen by scholars in India, China and Japan, the three principal countries in which Buddhism spread and took root. Written in the form of articles on different topics, the first part consists of the life and teachings of the Buddha described against a historical background and an account of the expansion of Hinnayana Buddhism in various periods.

The origin and growth of Mahayana Buddhism are discussed in historical perepective, and the reader is given concise information on Zen Buddhism. In the second part, after setting out the Christian faith in a form that can be understood easily by anyone learning about it even for the first time, the author goes into a comparative discussion of the theological concepts in Buddhism and Christianity.

The book is a helpful introduction to a study of Buddhism in relation to the Christian Faith. The other popular books by the author are: Theology: Christian and Hindu and Theology: Muslim and Christian, from the same publishers.
