The Lotus and the Cross by Ravis Zacharias
It is not imaginary that both Buddha and Jesus have left their words with us. Buddhism is a well-thought through belief that is bereft of God. More accurately, it’s a philosophy of how one can be good without God, pulling oneself up by one’s own moral bootstraps. Its allurement is obvious. In a very subtle way it is the ultimate crowning of the individual with total autonomy, while at the same time it declares that the self is an illusion.
