Students and scholars alike have long been fascinated by the similarities and differences between the traditions founded by the Shakyamun, called the Buddha, and Jesus, called Christ. The Buddha and the Christ introduces readers to Mahayana perspectives and explores the dynamics of discipleship – past and present – of both Christian and Buddhist traditions.


Leo D. Lefebure is visiting associate professor of theology at Fordham University, New York. He is editor of the journal Chicago Studies and author of Revelation, the Religions and Violence.
