Overview

Evangelical Zen: A Christian's Spiritual Travels With a Buddhist Friend by Paul Louis Metzger, Kyogen Carlson

"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.
