Description - Taking Jesus Seriously by John W. Cowan

In Taking Jesus Seriously, the words of Jesus become clearer when matched with the practices and insights of Buddhist meditation. This book presents a Christian way to implement the words of Jesus by looking inside to see what stands between the reader and God's kingdom. Cowan connects everyday examples and Jesus' words to the method of Buddhist vipassana or insight meditation by offering instruction, perception, and guidance. With practice, readers can begin to notice what is actual, leave anxiety to the Father, accept pain, and see the world as a child would. This book is designed to be read over twelve weeks while practicing 20--30 minutes of daily meditations. Each chapter includes questions and answers. Chapters are "Prelude," "First Interlude: What am I Doing Here?" "Second Interlude: The Delusion of Two," "Third Interlude: Intention," "Postlude on the Christian Life," and "My Book Shelf."
