Jesus, Buddha & the Devil

Does a Christian have much to learn from a Buddhist about the Devil? If they read Stephen Batchelor's Living With the Devil on an international flight they may. The Rev. Robert V. Thompson, senior minister of the Lake Street Church of Evanston, Illinois and former  Chair of the Parliament of the World's Religions, did just that and lived to write about it. Not everyone was enthusiastic about his reading habits, though. A fellow passenger, once she saw the title of the book the good reverend was reading, ignored him for the rest of the flight.

(You can read an excerpt from Stephen's book and a brief Tricycle interview with him here.)
