From Library Journal:

In July 1996, Buddhist and Christian monks met at the Abbey of Gethsemani, Kentucky, and held a five-day conference to discuss aspects of their spirituality and worship. Donald W. Mitchell (philosophy, Purdue) and James Wiseman, (O.S.B., chair of Monastic Interreligious Dialogue) have done a masterful job of distilling from this conference a remarkably rich document, encompassing vast areas of Christian/Buddhist monastic concerns. Part 1 offers presentations on ultimate reality and spirituality, prayer and meditation, spiritual growth and development, community and spiritual guidance. Part 2, the real treasure, contains dialog between Buddhist and Christian monks, including the Dalai Lama, on subjects from mind and virtue to grace, the nature of tragedy and violence, and the importance of social action. This book is directed more toward the scholar in comparative religions, but any informed lay reader will also greatly gain from reading it. Recommended for all libraries, especially academic ones.?Glenn Masuchika, Chaminade Univ. Lib., Honolulu
