(p.66) (p.67) 3 Dialogue
That All May Flourish

Colette Sciberras

Nelson Reveley

Oxford University Press

This dialogue brings Buddhist thought into conversation with Protestant Christian theological ethics. The chapter examines the worldly and spiritual conflicts and connections of flourishing in Buddhist philosophy, and how those concepts echo Christian writings. Dialogue follows about Buddhist and Christian views of the afterlife, as well as suffering and impermanence, goodness and permanence, and how there can be happiness in both permanence and impermanence. Further discussion about how the tensions between material and spiritual flourishing play out in other aspects of life prompts questions about whether the world may be seen as good, what counts as good, and where value lies.

Keywords:   Christian-Buddhist dialogue, value, nature, Colette Sciberras, Nelson Reveley
