‘Buddhism and God’ now published

I’m pleased to announce the publication of ‘Buddhism and God: Seeking the Middle Way’ by Mud Pie books. Unlike most of my other books, this one is a short argument of only about 20,000 words. It focuses specifically on the assumptions that Buddhism and theistic religions make about each other, and how those assumptions can be questioned using a Middle Way framework. It argues that, yes, it is possible to reconcile Buddhism and God, but not through naive universalism that just asserts that all is one. Rather we need an openness to the archetypal functions that different religions share, and a critical awareness to separate those important functions from the absolute beliefs that cause unnecessary conflict.
