224 pages. A former Zen Buddhist compares the views of Japanese Buddhists of the Kyoto School with those of traditional Christian spirituality by focusing on the Buddhist concept of Emptiness and the key theological issue of Kenosis, the process of self-emptying. The author also explores the theme of kenosis (which states that Christ voluntarily relinquished his divine powers so as to experience human suffering) as it pertains to Buddhism and Christianity. His discussion of the Kyoto School encompasses both Zen and Mahayana sects, while his discussion of Christianity involves kenotic perspectives on each person of the Trinity, as well as human expressions of kenosis (e.g., Adam and Eve's failure as negative kenosis). The concern for social and communal transformation and the emphasis on spiritual, rather than intellectual, issues distinguishes this book from others in the field.
