Thich Nhat Hanh is a Buddhist monk from Vietnam who works toward understanding between other religious faiths, particularly Christianity. In this book, he covers some key differences and similarities between Christianity and Buddhism. (They are more alike than one might think.) He also goes deep into the philosophical, describing the difference between the phenomenal world—that of physical reality—and the noumenal world of the metaphysical. It is a difficult concept to grasp, but by using consistent metaphors and several examples, Thich Nhat Hanh leads the reader toward understanding.
