Recently Buddhism has been rising sharply in prominence in the West, including Britain, with many high-profile converts. New Western expressions of Buddhism have arisen. This lucid introduction to a complex topic will prove essential to all Christians seeking to reach Buddhists with the gospel. The Buddha lived about 2,500 years ago in India, on the borders of what is now Nepal, and achieved a unique experience that he described as 'enlightenment'. Around this experience he constructed an elegant philosophy, simple in character and logical in analysis. He claimed that human beings are responsible for their own liberation and put forward a new ideal of the holy life. This religious philosophy has given rise to great civilisations, Buddhist art has flourished, and buddhist scholarshop has reached new heights. For this new edition Dr David Burnett has not only updated his text but has added web-based resources for every chapter along with clear learning objectives and topics for fruitful discussion. He comments, 'Only as Christians understand the fascination of this unique religion well they be able to communicate meaningfully with those of the Buddhist tradition.'
