Buddhism in the Light of Christ
A Former Buddhist Nun’s Reflections, with Some Helpful Suggestions on How to Reach Out to Your Buddhist Friends
Imprint: Resource Publications
"It is good that someone has written on this subject, and Esther Baker is the one to do it. Drawing from her experience of being a Buddhist nun, and then encountering the truth she had been seeking all along, Esther writes clearly about that truth and how it is sorely lacking `in Buddhism."
--Leanne Payne, Pastoral Care Ministries, Wheaton, IL
"Esther's writing is a unique mix of storytelling and Biblical wisdom. Her stories reflect a rich understanding and insights drawn from her own personal experience as a Buddhist nun and also from years of living and teaching in contexts where a Buddhist worldview prevails. Her wisdom comes from deeply reflecting on how the Bible speaks about the concerns that Buddhism seeks to address. This book is essential for anyone who wants to understand Buddhism from a biblical worldview."
--Ruth Wall, All Nations Christian College, Hertfordshire, UK
"At a time when we hear of western 'dual-belongers' who argue with passion that we can actually be Buddhists while at the same time also claiming to be true Christians, in this sequel to her previous book, Esther Baker reflects from her own perhaps unrivaled experience on the deep and irreconcilable differences between what she actually found in living Buddhism and the joy and true freedom of authentically knowing Christ. This book is absorbingly readable and highly recommended."
