Buddhism for a Violent World takes the religiously plural world we live n seriously and demonstrates that in-depth encounter with a religion not ur own can lead to challenge and enrichment.

Written by a Christian who has drawn deeply from Buddhist spirituality for over 25 years, it ffers a Christian reflection on what Buddhism could offer a disturbed and fractured world. The author draws on conversations with Buddhists, xperiences in Buddhist countries, most particularly Sri Lanka, where he lived for nearly 8 years, and her academic study. The book's message is that Buddhism has much to offer the world and that we can ll benefit from gaining wisdom from more than one spiritual source.
