This course introduces Buddhist-Christian Dialogue and its importance for peaceful coexistence among different cultural, religious and racial groups of humanity in our contemporary multi-religious world. It offers the concept of truth, suffering, salvation/liberation, etc. by rereading some parables and stories in Buddhism and Christianity. Interreligious dialogue helps if a bridge is constructed on the premise of a known concept or meaning. This course, therefore, helps students how to discover some similarities of theologies between these two different religions—Buddhism: non-theistic religion and Christianity: monotheistic religion.
