A Buddhist Christian Dialogue
Buddhists interested in the person of Jesus -- and Christians who wish to engage in
and promote meaningful dialogue with Buddhists in the online realm -- can log on

created "to promote true interaction between Christians and Buddhists in dialog. It
is not the goal to blend the distinct spiritual gems of Christianity and Buddhism and
compromise our respective religions, but to promote mutual understanding
between the parts in sober and positive confrontation." The site is Christian in

Information about Buddhist World nations is being updated and made available
through the web. A Daily Prayer Guide is also available. If 20 million Christians
spend an average of one hour a week throughout the coming year praying for the
Buddhist world, the target will be exceeded! Visit the web site above to log your
commitment to pray and also to access further information, web links, and news
