a good concise comparison

Ravi does an excellent job of making concise ideas for comparison. His ability to illustrate to communicate ideas is wonderful. This is a book that focuses on a few topics which will lead to more questions, but I think that is great. It's a good story.

Make this into a movie!

What made the experience of listening to Lotus and the Cross the most enjoyable?

The dialogue between Jesus and Buddha was fascinating. The story of the young woman trapped in the life of prostitution was heart wrenching and something I could somewhat relate too. And Visually the idea of Jesus, Buddha and this woman being ferry boated through south east asia and walking through buddhist temples i would simply love to see on a movie screen.

What other book might you compare Lotus and the Cross to and why?

The only things i can compare this to is Zacharias's other Great Conversation books.

Which scene was your favorite?

Probably when the 4 of them are walking through the temple.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The devastating story of this young woman's life.

Any additional comments?

I think the only that could have been better was having their action's narrated in 3rd person rather than having the characters themselves say what they were about to do or were doing in 1st person. It sounds really heavy handed and a little cheesy. And when Buddha quoted a common phrase from Ravi Zacharias himself i was like "What? Would Buddha really say that?" Fortunately these things only happened a few times and not enough to ruin the book.

Interesting but extremely biased

First of all, this is read very nicely by Simon Vance (one of my favourite readers of audiobooks).

I was expecting a stimulating and balanced discussion between two of the most famous people in history who have a continuing influence on the World today. However, the Christ presented here is pompous, arrogant and self-righteous. He spends the whole book attacking Shakyamuni Buddha and Buddhism. Christ never mentions antinomianism - a major failing of Christianity.

The author is clearly a Christian and clearly does not understand or respect Buddhism. However, I would recommend this audiobook to anybody because it is thought provoking if flawed and irritating at times.
