|To review: these books are ones I'm eager to get, or on my shelf waiting to be read, or that I've read and am trying to get time to write about.
- River of Fire, River of Water; An Introduction to the Pure Land Tradition of Shin Buddhism
- New York, Doubleday: 1998.
Another scholar-practitioner who writes movingly about his path. Shin has problems for me as a feminist, most strikingly the language that brands everyone as "evil." However the idea that there is a force in the universe that inevitably draws us to enlightenment rang deeply in my heart when I first read about it, and I am currently pursuing this path.
(Much more needs to be said!)
