Book Overview

Thich Nhat Hanh] shows us the connection between personal, inner peace and peace on earth. --His Holiness The Dalai Lama

Nominated by Martin Luther King, Jr. for a Nobel Peace Prize, Thich Nhat Hanh is one of today's leading sources of wisdom, peace, compassion and comfort.

Exiled from Vietnam over thirty years ago, Thich Nhat Hanh has become known as a healer of the heart, a monk who shows us how the everyday world can both enrich and endanger our spiritual lives.

In this book, Jesus and Buddha share a conversation about prayer and ritual and renewal, and about where such concepts as resurrection and the practice of mindfulness converge. In this unique way, Thich Nhat Hanh shows the brotherhood between Jesus and Buddha-- and in the process shows how we can take their wisdom into the world with us, to practice in such a way that Buddha is born every moment of our daily life, that Jesus Christ is born every moment of our daily life.

   Living Faith
This is the second book by Thich Nhat Hanh, comparing Christianity with Buddhism. Each of them is particularly well-written, representing Thich Nhat Hanh at his best. But I found this first volume even more insightful than his second. In doing so, Hanh points out how faith is better understood as practice, the ways we practice our daily ways of life, rather than as a creed of doctrines, beliefs, concepts and ideas.

   must read
I read this to my father for Christmas because he likes to read different things and this monk has the most profound outlook on Buddhism, some like me, who was not educated, but also enlightened by his books.

   Still so relevant
As a very frustrated former, this reading gave me much peace and comfort that Christian and Buddhist traditions are very compatible. If you are a seeker, your time is worth.

   For a religious runaway always looking to "go home"...
This was loved. I read a ton of Richard Rohr and other Christian mystics in his Circle This books beautifully lines with JUST THIS. The gentleness of the writing is evident in the writing. The depth of each small section in each chapter is SO much to unpack. Finally, the words of my heart are spoken in this book.

Considering a Zen Monk wrote that it is mostly about Buddhism, but the author makes readers aware of Jesus'stories. I don 't really believe that before Jesus speaks. Now who knows? Basically, becoming Nirvana is the equivalent of achieving God's. I have never thought about it like that before.
