Christians and Buddhism_ldby Kristin Johnston Largen ’90

It is a truism in the study of religion that to understand one’s own tradition one must inhabit another’s deeply. Largen, assistant professor of systematic theology at Lutheran Theological Seminary in Gettysburg, Pa., takes the reader on a pilgrimage into Buddhism in order to ultimately address what Christians mean by salvation. The book explores comparative theology and the meanings of salvation, or soteriology.
