It is a small book written for readers without an in depth background in philosophy, especially existentialism. It is an examinnation of the interface between Christian meditation and Zen Buddhism. It is contextual, and as of yet I have not included the meditation workshop book that I use when I am giving workshops on Christian Zen meditation. Presently, it is really in the format of an in depth essay. The style is siminlar to one of your publications that had led me to your site i.e Emotion and Psyche, Marc Jackson.I have presented this workshop also on college campuses in the midwest, and it was received well. It helps greatly clarify the nature o af promising and practical dialogue between Christian existentialism and the practice of Zen.
