A discussion of the merits and disadvantages of Buddhist and Christian approaches to prayer and meditation. It looks at questions such as: what can a Christian, for example, learn from the mental and physical rigor of Buddhist meditative practice?; and what can a Buddhist learn from traditional Christian prayer? They examine the difficulties and possible loss of religious identity if a Christian or Buddhist mixes thier practice techniques.
