The most accessible of Abe's books (IMHO)

Having read all the rest of Masao Abe's books, I had begun to despair of ever truly feeling as if I'd understood any of them. His writing is certainly not kid stuff. It's very serious, very dense theology and philosophy from the buddhist perspective. If you are fluent with the works of Tillich, Heideger, Nietzche, and others than you are likely to get much more out of them than I did. Despite the fact that much of what I read was so incredibly far over my head, I still occasionally ran into ideas and thoughts that kept me exploring his work. This work (Zen and Comparative Studies), however, is written in such a way that even a philosophical-theological neophyte such as myself can understand all of it. And in addition, it is (in my opinion) much richer in insights then his other works. But who knows, maybe I only feel that way because for once I understood (I believe) what I was reading! Excellent work
