"Evangelical Zen" is part "Augustine's Confessions" and part Robert Pirsig's "Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance." Here Paul Louis Metzger, an Evangelical Christian, reflects on his spiritual journey-an inner pilgrimage of sorts that weaves through a physical forty-day journey with his family to Japan. The experiences of that journey, the beauties of Japan, its culture, and its religion become for him a lens on a deeper quest: here he is searching for and, he believes, finding a global humanity in conversation with Kyogen, his Buddhist friend.
