The Gospel for Buddhists and the Dharma for Christians

  • By Donovan Roebert
  • Foreword by Samdhong Rinpoche, John W. De Gruchy
Product Description
Description: In this book Donovan Roebert provides a path for Christians and Buddhists who wish to better understand the essential, living tenets of their own faith while exploring how these two great religious paths can provide insights of real benefit to adherents of either. Without lapsing into syncretism or demanding a departure from orthodoxy, this book provides a sound and thorough basis on which Christians and Buddhists ¬- and all those seeking greater insight into faiths other than their own - can explore the rich possibilities for learning from one another. Beyond describing in detail the doctrines and practices of Christianity and Buddhism, this book describes the authentic human path of religious development with a strong focus on the problem of 'self' or 'ego' in spiritual growth, discussing obstacles to growth and exploring their remedies. Brief histories of both religions are provided, enabling the reader to understand how diversity is an inevitable consequence of historical development and, rather than standing as a problem in religious dialogue, is always a means to spiritual enrichment. The Gospel for Buddhists and the Dharma for Christians is the fruit of a personal spiritual journey of thirty years. It demonstrates that the search for religious freedom becomes richer and more rewarding when a spacious mind engages with, rather then flees from, religious paths outside of its own tradition. Finally, it is a plea for sincere friendship across factitious religious divides. About the Contributor(s): Donovan Roebert is the author of Samdhong Rinpoche: Uncompromising Truth for a Compromised World (2006) and Jungian Moon (1994). Formerly involved in Christian mission work, he converted to Buddhism in 1997. He is the founder of the Christian Friends of Tibet in South Africa.
