Buddhists and Christians
James L. Fredericks;
Buddhists and Christians examines Christian teachings about other religions to argue that the next step to dialogue is "comparative theology." Fredericks asks why the Buddha refused to engage in God-talk and suggests that understanding the answer to this question will help Christians and Buddhists to have better communication and to find that God reveals the way to mutual comprehension and deeper solidarity.
James L. Fredericks is associate professor of theological studies at Loyola Marymount University, Los Angeles, California.
