Publisher's Summary

World-renowned thinker and scholar Thich Nhat Hanh, considered by many to be a "Living Buddah", explores the spiritual crossroads where the traditions of Christianity and Buddhism meet. Living Buddha, Living Christ reawakens our understanding of both religions and the connections between them.
The best-selling author of Creating True Peace, and one of the most beloved Buddhist teachers in the West, Vietnamese monk Thich Nhat Hanh has been part of a decades-long dialogue between the two greatest living contemplative traditions. In lucid, meditative prose, he explores the crossroads of compassion and holiness at which the two traditions meet, and reawakens our understanding of both. "On the altar in my hermitage," he says, "are images of Buddha and Jesus, and I touch both of them as my spiritual ancestors."

if only it wasn't abridged it'd be a five

The narration was fantastic
Hearing Thich Nhat Hanh's voice was a great introduction
The use of the bell/gong and other music was a nice addition

BUT
I was disappointed it was only an abridged version (which, my mistake, I didn't take note of when I bought it)

Beautiful

I will listen to this many times. There is music (gongs) to meditate to, the narration is calming and superbly rendered. I have yet to hear the entire storyline as it puts me into sleep so wonderfully but from what I've heard so far it's very informative historically and spiritually. I love it.
