Abstract

ESSAYS Review Essay: Buddhists Talk about Jesus, Christians Talk about the Buddha Edited by Rita Gross and Terry Muck. New York: Continuum, 2000. Paul O. Ingram Pacific Lutheran University Buddhists have been talking about Jesus and Christians have been talking about the Buddha from the earliest times of Buddhist-Christian encounter in the first century. 1 My educated guess is that until 1980, most of the talk was monological rather than dialogical for cultural and historical reasons peculiar to both traditions. But after the first "East-West Religions in Encounter" meeting, organized by David Chappell in the summer of 1980 at the University of Hawai`i, the nature of Buddhist-Christian conversation changed from a monologue to a systematic twenty-year dialogue. The initial "East-West Religions in Encounter" conference has now evolved into the Society for Buddhist-Christian Studies. The publication in the society's journal, BuddhistChristian Studies, of a series of essays and responses edited by the journal's coeditors, Rita M. Gross and Terry C.
