This book helps Christians to understand the Buddhist mind-set and world view, and to see where there are useful points of comparison and contact. Steve explains the concerns, fears and stresses that Buddhists experience - Buddhism is not a way of harmony and cosmic unity, as Westerners tend to think - and suggests what Christians truly have to offer. Buddhism is a rapidly rising religion in the West. But few Westerners know what Buddhism is like from the inside. Steve, who made the journey from Buddhism to Christ, sets himself to compare the two faiths. The book is studded with stories, parables and illuminating observations. It is remarkably easy to read, and Steve is an engaging and original guide.
Steve Cioccolanti is senior pastor of Discover Church, Melbourne, Australia. Born in Thailand to a family of Catholics, Buddhists, Methodists and Musliims, Steve has a unique perspective on world religions. He is a popular speaker and travels widely.
