The Buddha and the Christ
By: Leo D. Lefebure
Students and scholars alike have long been fascinated by the similarities and differences between the traditions founded by the Shakyamun, called the Buddha, and Jesus, called Christ. The Buddha and the Christ introduces readers to Mahayana perspectives and explores the dynamics of discipleship past and present of both Christian and Buddhist traditions.
