In recent years Buddhism has attracted a fast-growing following in North America and^Europe. In part, this is because Buddhism seems to offer peace and inner tranquillity, a^profound spirituality and insight into ultimate reality yet without the need for belief in a^God. To many spiritual seekers in the post-Christian West this 'spirituality without God' has^strong appeal.
^Whilst Buddhism has been a formative influence in the cultures of South and East Asia^it is a relatively new arrival in the West and is little understood by Christians. This book^has the twofold aim of introducing the diverse Buddhist traditions to Western readers^and of offering a Christian engagement with the central truth-claims of Buddhism. This^book is one of few attempts by Christians to offer a respectful and informed, but honest^and robust critique of this important religion. It forms a helpful contribution to inter-faith^understanding and discussions.


^' This is interfaith dialogue at its best. Netland and Yandell provide a thoughtful^understanding of Buddhism, followed by a careful pressing of internal problems within^Buddhism, then a constructive summary of real differences between Christianity and^Buddhism. They also succeed in establishing the plausibility of Christianity in the light^of various possible Buddhist critiques. No reader, Christian or Buddhist, will be left^unchallenged by this lucid exposition, critique, and proclamation.'
^Gavin D'Costa, Professor of Christian Theology, Bristol University
