Editorial Reviews

Charles B. Jones
...[A]n example of more spiritually-oriented than theologically-oriented writing....a distillation of his thoughts and reflections on what it means to be a Christian who has made some genuine progress in the way of Zen....He shows how one can make a coherent religious life by taking the best that both traditions have to offer and following them both to their final goal. —Journal of Buddhist Ethics
