Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A New Christian Spirituality William Johnstone's CHRISTIAN ZEN is a beautiful book which draws heavily upon the Jesuit author's 20 years in Japan. Johnstone's intention is to forge a new approach to Christian spirituality inspired by the meditation and koan practices of Zen Buddhism. Although some may feel threatened by the seemingly syncretistic nature of his approach, Johnstone is soundly orthodox. His understanding of Zen as technique rather than ideology lays a firm foundation for Christians who wish to enhance their spiritual lives through eastern mediation.
