Buddhism for a Violent World: A Christian Reflection.
Elizabeth J. Harris
Fusing autobiography, conversations with Buddhists and academic research into Buddhism, this book explores what Buddhist thought and practice can offer a fractured world. Elizabeth studied Buddhism for nearly eight years in Sri Lanka during the country's ethnic war and uses this experience to reflect on Buddhism's message in contexts of violence and suffering. In the last chapter, she reflects on Buddhist-Christian mistrust in Sri Lanka and some of the pioneering initiatives by Sri Lankan Christians to change mistrust into trust.
