When I discovered that a book existed on this topic, I was skeptical as to the book's value. Although this book is short in length with less than 200 pages, it is full of wisdom.
His Holiness the Dalai Lama is given various passages from each of the four Gospels and is asked to evaluate them. His Holiness only evaluates the meaning of the passages while avoiding criticizing Christianity. Because he believes there is no right answer, the Dalai Lama the value in having multiple religious faiths over one dominant religion. His Holiness give a new and valuable perspective to important passages of the Gospels. Christians seeking new meaning for their faith will find value in these evaluations. Similarly, Buddhists will be enlightened by the Dalai Lama's thoughts on the life of Jesus Christ. As a whole, this is a valuable read for all.
One need not be a Buddhist to gain wisdom from any of the Dalai Lamas book, and personally I believe any thinking Christian whose life isn't ruled by fear, but by a quest to better understand what unites believers of Buddhism and Christianity, should love this book.
The Dalai Lama is one of the gentle men of the world, ripe with leaders who see and even follow thru with acts of violence against those who disagree with their political and yes, sadly, their religious views/beliefs.
I happen to be somewhat odd in that I love and often find value in books that have gems of wisdom that similar to mine, but from different religions. This book also might remind readers of another gem Zen Way Jesus Way.
G~d bless the Dalai Lama and all men and women who seek peace,and who well understand the meaning of what I have read Jesus as saying "What you do to the least of them you do to me" Because this is also what I believe is the well known Golden Rule, do unto others etc.
