"[Thich Nhat Hanh] shows us the connection between personal, inner peace and peace on earth." --His Holiness The Dalai Lama Nominated by Martin Luther King, Jr. for a Nobel Peace Prize, Thich Nhat Hanh is one of today’s leading sources of wisdom, peace, compassion and comfort. The 20th anniversary edition of the classic text, updated, revised, and featuring a Mindful Living Journal. Buddha and Christ, perhaps the two most pivotal figures in the history of humankind, each left behind a legacy of teachings and practices that have shaped the lives of billions of people over two millennia. If they were to meet on the road today, what would each think of the other's spiritual views and practices? Thich Nhat Hanh has been part of a decades-long dialogue between two great contemplatice traditions, and brings to Christianity an appreciation of its beauty that could be conveyed only by an outsider. IN lucid, meditative prose, he explores the crossroads of compassion and holiness at which the two traditions meet, and he reawakens our understanding of both. "On the altar in my hermitage," he says, "are images of Buddha and Jesus, and I touch both of them as my spiritual ancestors." From the Trade Paperback edition.

No other life has had such an amazing impact upon the human race as did our Savior, Jesus Christ. From His birth in a humble stable until His death upon the cross of Golgotha, He left all of us simple teachings, direct commandments and profound doctrines which have altered the history of the world. He performed astounding miracles that left His disciples and other onlookers stunned and speechless. He condemned the hypocrisy of the religious leaders of the day, who would eventually conspire and arrange His death at the hands of the Romans. The culminating act of His ministry was the priceless gift of His eternal Atonement, which opened the floodgates of the resurrection, ending the final and icy grip of death upon all mankind. One day we too will participate in the glorious experience of the resurrection, when all tears will be dried and fears will cease. In a matter of just three years, His brief ministry changed the course of history. Gone was the harsh and rigid Mosaic law, replaced by the higher law of love for friends and enemies alike. His life is an example to all. All of these magnificent scriptural accounts and doctrines can be found within the pages of Days of the Living Christ.

Is Jesus’ promise to live on through his believers true? Can we find the living Christ in today’s complicated, uneasy world? Harold Fickett explores these questions in The Living Christ, a journey throughout the world in search of individual Christians whose daily lives reflect different aspects of the resurrected Christ. Fickett profiles a woman who rescues girls from prostitution in Thailand, a “trucker chaplain” in South Carolina, a visionary living on the California coast, an America priest who conducts a healing ministry in Mexico City, and others who carry out the work of Christ in difficult, sometimes desperate circumstances. Written with narrative flair and offering surprising theological insights, these real-life stories stimulate new and enlightening meditations on Jesus the Liberator, Wayfarer, Contemplative, Healer, and Martyr. Like the writings of Thomas Merton, Henri Nouwen, and Philip Yancey, The Living Christ will appeal to all who seek a deeper spirituality.
