Book Reviews COMPARATIVE THEOLOGY AND THE PROBLEM OF RELIGIOUS RIVALRY. By Hugh Nicholson. Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2011. xxiv + 320 pp. THE SPIRIT OF CONTRADICTION IN CHRISTIANITY AND BUDDHISM. By Hugh Nicholson. Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2016. xxi + 318 pp. There are many ways to read Hugh Nicholson, and almost just as many to lose sight of what he is up to. Readers of this journal will no doubt initially notice the more recent book under review, even as other members of the Society for BuddhistChristian Studies will be interested in if not also engaged with the enterprise of comparative theology that is Nicholsonâs first book. Yet those drawn to Nicholson as a comparativist will soon observe that he is operatingâin both volumesâin a significantly different domain than are most of his peers working in this arena, even as scholars of Buddhist-Christian studies and relations will see that there is a lot more going on in the later book than a comparative analysis of these two traditions. In order to appreciate his achievements, letâs introduce Nicholson briefly, set out his overarching research agenda, and overview the arguments in the two books before rendering some preliminary assessment.
