Publisher's Summary

World-renowned thinker and scholar Thich Nhat Hanh, considered by many to be a "Living Buddah", explores the spiritual crossroads where the traditions of Christianity and Buddhism meet. Living Buddha, Living Christ reawakens our understanding of both religions and the connections between them.

The best-selling author of Creating True Peace, and one of the most beloved Buddhist teachers in the West, Vietnamese monk Thich Nhat Hanh has been part of a decades-long dialogue between the two greatest living contemplative traditions. In lucid, meditative prose, he explores the crossroads of compassion and holiness at which the two traditions meet, and reawakens our understanding of both. "On the altar in my hermitage," he says, "are images of Buddha and Jesus, and I touch both of them as my spiritual ancestors."

    "if only it wasn't abridged it'd be a five"

    The narration was fantastic
    Hearing Thich Nhat Hanh's voice was a great introduction
    The use of the bell/gong and other music was a nice addition

    BUT
    I was disappointed it was only an abridged version (which, my mistake, I didn't take note of when I bought it)

    "Beautiful"

    I will listen to this many times. There is music (gongs) to meditate to, the narration is calming and superbly rendered. I have yet to hear the entire storyline as it puts me into sleep so wonderfully but from what I've heard so far it's very informative historically and spiritually. I love it.

    "Now I need to read the print edition"

    Wonderful book. I'm glad I have the audio version, so that I can listen to it on occasion as a sort of "cliff notes" for the paperback. I enjoyed the audiobook so much, now I would like to read the full version in print.

    "Truly this is the blueprint for living your life"

    Meditation, prayer, love and compassion. The common denominator of how we should live our lives in practice regardless of religion.

    "This book is beautiful. everyone should read it."

    This book allowed me to heal. anyone struggling to find faith in Christianity should be reading this beautiful story of love and spiritual growth found in both Buddhism and Christianity.

    "profound"

    Thich Nhat Hanh describes a world where Christ and Buddha not only co-exist, but live in harmony. We all have the potential to live by their teachings and share peace.

    "Not Great"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    It does really have much context and is very repetitive


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    The narrator and the book just do not match
