Without Buddha I Could not be a Christian narrates how esteemed theologian, Paul F.
Knitter, overcame a crisis of faith by looking to Buddhism for inspiration. From prayer to how Christianity views life after death, Knitter argues that a Buddhist standpoint can encourage a more person-centred conception of Christianity where individual religious experience comes first, and liturgy and tradition second. Moving and revolutionary, this edition comes with a new conclusion - `Jesus and Buddha Both Come First!'`A compelling example of religious inquiry.'New York Times`One of the finest contemporary books on the encounter between religions in the heart and soul of a single thoughtful person.'Library Journal
