Read in March, 1997

This book was extremely insightful and a super attempt at attempting to illustrate that faith is faith, regardless of what type. I did find it intriguing, the way that Thich Naht Hahn seems to struggle with the concept of Christianity, I think. It must be as foreign and abstract an idea to him as Buddhism can be to the Western Christian world. It was a good try on his part to identify common ground between faiths, but ultimately I think he failed to nail Christianity, which would have made his case stronger. He possibly could have done more research to understand the scriptures and his subject matter a little better. Great book, though.
