an increasing number of humans describe themselves as either Buddhist and Christian; yet does one of these self-description quite make experience? many of us keen on inter-faith discussion argue that this discussion results in a at the same time transformative strategy, yet what if the transformation reaches the purpose the place the Buddhist or Christian turns into a Buddhist Christian? Does this characterize a fulfilment of or the undermining of debate? Exploring the turning out to be phenomenon of Buddhist-Christian twin belonging, a wide selection of authors together with advocates, sympathisers and competitors from either faiths, specialize in 3 key questions: Can Christian and Buddhist money owed and practices of salvation or liberation be reconciled? Are Christian theism and Buddhist non-theism appropriate? And does twin belonging necessarily distort the essence of those faiths, or basically swap its cultural expression? Clarifying alternative ways of justifying twin belonging, participants provide criticisms of twin belonging from varied non secular views (Theravada Buddhist, Evangelical Reformed and Roman Catholic) and from various methodological ways. 4 chapters then hold the dialogue ahead suggesting ways that twin belonging may possibly make experience from Catholic, Theravada Buddhist, Pure-land Buddhist and Anglican views. the belief clarifies the most demanding situations rising for twin belongers, and the consequences for interreligious dialogue.
