Abstract

BOOK REV IEWS Rather, we may experience that the Spirit of Christ is identical with our own Spirit and that we may express that spirit confidently in the constantly changing unique circumstances of our lives. This experience of identity is what Augustine referred to when offering the Eucharist to the Christians of Hippo, "Receive what you are." It is with this experience of identity with Christ that we Christians are able to sit together with Zen Buddhists who experience not relationship but identity with the Buddha. I believe Tom Chetwynd would be pleased with this arrangement, and I invite him to come and sit with us and share with us his rich and fruitful experience. Robert Kennedy Saint Peter's College, Jersey City BUDDHIST PERCEPTIONS OF JESUS. Edited by Perry Schmidt-Leukel with Gerhard Köberlin and Thomas Josef Götz, OSB.
