"This captivating dialogue not only clears up confusion about the claims of Christ and Buddha, but also provides us with a highly entertaining read." - Chuck Colson

"...this unique drama will educate, enthrall, and enlighten you - and everyone you share it with - for years to come." - Bruce Wilkinson, author of the Prayer of Jabez

Step into a Long-Tail Boat on the River of Kings and become immersed in an imaginary conversation between Jesus Christ and Gautama Buddha.

  • Both talked about the "self", but one denied it even existed.
  • Both felt the pain of human suffering, but each had radically different responses to it.
  • Both addressed our deepest hungers, but one saw them as an impediment, the other as a clue.
  • Both have earned a worldwide following - but their answers are worlds apart.

Jesus and Buddha agreed that Truth could withstand scrutiny. Listen in as the Soul of Truth speaks with the Heart of Compassion. It could change your life.
