Review:

..".a handsome and durable volume ... profound and sustained meditation on the relation between faith and understanding in interreligious dialogue. It is a work which will interest and inform Buddhist and Christian scholars alike, and challenges us to engage in ever more frequent and fruitful encounters both with each other and among ourselves." -- Eastern Buddhist

"This book is valuable for collections that emphasize theology, philosophy, or interfaith movements." -- CHOICE

"In the Company of Friends is groundbreaking. It brilliantly critiques current assumptions operative in the academic study of religions, theologies of religions, and interreligious dialogue and painstakingly sketches a new direction for learning inter-religiously. It will become a lightning rod of intense scholarly discussion and creative re-imagining in many fields related to religion and theology in the academy in coming years." -- John J. Makransky, author of Buddhahood Embodied: Sources of Controversy in India and Tibet

"This book is a distinctive contribution in the field of Interreligious Dialogue Studies, specifically Buddhist Christian dialogue, coming from more than three decades of scholarship and experience of the author. The fact that it is a testimony of an accomplished scholar and revered teacher, engaged in interreligious dialogue, giving not only detached accounts of ideas, but more relevantly, his personal engagement with the themes and issues discussed, makes the book an attractive read for those interested in the field." -- Ruben L. F. Habito, author of Healing Breath: Zen for Christians and Buddhists in a Wounded World
