Buddhism and Orthodoxy
March 09, 2014 Length: 1:38:27
Buddhists in the US are double the number of Orthodox Christians, and most American Buddhists are Western, not raised in Buddhist traditions. Kevin and his guests Fr. Brendan Pelphrey (GOA), an ex-missionary in Asia who has had dialogue with the Dalai Lama, and R. Todd Godwin, ex-Buddhist and Orthodox Christian, discuss the attractions of Buddhism, as well as its key teachings and practices, in comparison with and in contrast to those of Eastern Orthodox Christianity.
"I listen to AFR Talk all the time. This is a priceless resource, and I thank God for it being available. Because of the wealth of knowledge, encouragement, and support I receive listening to your programs, I've grown much more as an Orthodox Christian than I would have without AFR. May God grant you many years."
