Buddhist/Christian dialogue has rarely touched on its interaction with science, yet its importance has immense implications. Buddhist-Christian Dialogue in an Age of Science offers a fresh and exciting view on the ideas, themes, and people engaged in the three-way dialogue between Christianity, Buddhism and the natural sciences. Ingram's comprehensive yet accessible scholarship is uniquely solid in both religion and science, and has the gift of making complex theories understandable. Providing these three different perspectives will be useful for anyone interested in the relationship between religion and science.
