Many know the Buddha from the serene statues one sees everwhere. But what of the man himself and the world he lived in? What did he actually do in his roughly eighty years on earth that spawned one of the greatest religions in history? Renowned religious scholar Karen Armstrong answers these questions and more by examining the life and times of the Buddha in this engrossing philosophical biography. Against the background of cultural ferment that characterized the world at the time, Armstrong blends history, philosophy, mythology and biography to create a compelling and illuminating portrait of a man whose awakening continues to inspire millions today, 2,500 years after his death.

The Unexpected Way: On Converting from Buddhism to CatholicismThe Unexpected Way: On Converting from Buddhism to Catholicism
Paul Williams

CBD Price: $59.31
( Usually ships in 24-48 hours. )

There are Christians who, in mid-life decide to abandon their Christian faith and become Buddhists. Paul Williams did the opposite. After twenty years spent practising and teaching Tibetan Buddhism in Britain, scholar and broadcaster Paul Williams astonished his family and friends in 1999 by converting to Roman Catholicism. Williams explains why he joined a Church that many Buddhists and others might regard as a repressed and outdated way of life and belief. He argues that being a Catholic in the modern world is no less rational than being a Buddhist, and may in many respects, be more so.

Persecution in the News

India Christians
Forced to Flee


In India's West Bengal state, local Christians and missionaries faced death threats for their faith, according to Mission News Network. Fourteen members of a Gospel for Asia church were severely beaten and forced to leave their homes on July 10 [2008], after being accused of forcing conversions and bringing an illness on the village. The mob threatened to kill the believers if they remained in the village. Village leader Negesh Rai brought the matter to the attention of local police, which led to calls for his resignation by protesting villagers. On July 16, the believers were removed to a different area for safety.
