5.0 out of 5 stars Unparallelled eloquence, insight, October 25, 1998
This review is from: Living Buddha, Living Christ (Hardcover)
When you begin to read it you can see it is written by a Zen master because Thich Nhat Hanh is able to say much with few words. I am a Christian and this book introduced me to Buddhism. Nearly every sentence would cause me to stop in my tracks and think. I was introduced to many completely new ideas and philosophies through the course of this book. Although I will never be a Buddhist and I do not agree with everything Thich Nhat Hanh believes, I have a great respect for their beliefs as well as others. It also helped me to understand Christianity and Christ's message, and shaped my own beliefs. You will gain a lot of cultural and philosophical insight if you read this book.

TruthTeller says:
I hate to tell you this, but you can actually be a Christian and a Buddhist, given that Buddha is a philosopher. It is as meaningless to say you can't be a Buddhist and a Christian as saying you can't be a Socratic and a Christian, though Buddha stands heads, shoulders and feet above Socrates.

I agree with the foundation of your post..were you to remove the negativity ("I hate to tell you this, it is as meaningless, stand...above") it would be really thought-full
