Lynn A. de Silva und the Prospects for
Buddhist-Christian Encounter

St. Ottilien: EOS 2021, 394 pp., illustr.


The Sri Lankan Methodist theologian,
Dr. Lynn Alton de Silva (16 June 1919 – 22 May 1982), was a major pioneer
in Buddhist-Christian dialogue and was one of those who paved the way
for the World Council of Churches‘ commitment to inter-faith work.
In this book, representatives of the WCC, the Pontifical Council
for Interreligious Dialogue and the Ecumenical Institute
 for Study and Dialogue in Colombo, together with friends, companions
and a family member pay tribute to his outstanding work and personality.
Picking up major topics of de Silva’s work in Buddhist-Christian dialogue,
renowned and rising specialists also highlight the continuing significance
of his ideas and relate them to the ongoing process of the encounter
between the two religious traditions.
