James Fredericks examines basic Christian teachings about other religions and shows that the next step is 'comparative theology,' which involves a deep, mutual commitment to understanding and correlating the deepest elements of religious traditions. This masterful book asks why the Buddha refused to engage in God-talk and suggests that the answer (avoiding the 'fire of the mind') will help Christians go more deeply into their own tradition and Buddhists to understand better that the Christian God-talk has dimensions that resonate with Buddhist insights into emptiness. From that process, Fredericks shows new forms of social and religious solidarity with those who follow other religious traditions become possible.
