In the early twentieth century, The Eastern Buddhist journal pioneered the presentation of Buddhism to the west and encouraged the west's engagement in interpretation. This interactive process increased dramatically in the post-war period, when dialogue between Buddhist and Christian thought began to take off in earnest. These debates attracted not only Zen voices but also thinkers from the Shin Buddhist tradition.

This book brings together a wide range of classic writings from the 1950s to the 1970s which have significantly influenced subsequent Buddhist-Christian dialogue. It is a companion volume to Interactions with Japanese Buddhism: Explorations and Viewpoints in Twentieth Century Kyōto.

Michael Pye is Professor (ret.) at Marburg University and Guest Researcher at Otani University in Kyoto. His writings have ranged widely over the methodology of the study of religions, studies in Buddhist thought and many aspects of contemporary Japanese religion. His major publications include Skilful Means, A Concept in Mahayana Buddhism and Emerging from Meditation .
