Library Journal Review

Written by a Catholic sister born in Taiwan and educated in the United States and a Jesuit priest born and raised in California who has lived most of his adult life in Japan, this book combines autobiographical and theological reflection in a marvelous account of how classical Taoist and Mahayana Buddhist studies have ``more than any other element in our spiritual quest . . . assisted'' the authors ``to become better Christians.'' Hand explains how his Christianity became freed from overdependence on canon law, dogmatic definition, and personalization of God; for both, issues of human selfhood and no-self emerge as they recount their experience-centered reading of Christian scripture from a Taoist-Buddhist consciousness. Highly recommended as an excellent book of interfaith dialog and a guide to developing one's spirituality. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
