Without Buddha I Could not be a Christian narrates how esteemed theologian, Paul F. Knitter, overcame a crisis of faith by looking to Buddhism for inspiration. From prayer to how Christianity views life after death, Knitter argues that a Buddhist standpoint can encourage a more person-centred conception of Christianity where individual religious experience comes first, and liturgy and tradition second.
Moving and revolutionary, this edition comes with a new conclusion – ‘Jesus and Buddha Both Come First!’

‘A compelling example of religious inquiry.’
New York Times

‘One of the finest contemporary books on the encounter between religions in the heart and soul of a single thoughtful person.’
