The Creed of Half Japan

by Arthur Lloyd

A comprehensive history of Mahayana Buddhism, particularly in Japan, and possible ties to Gnosticism and early Christianity. Includes two translated texts from the Nichiren school.

This is a scholarly study of the evolution of Mahayana Buddhism in Japan. Lloyd was particularly interested in how Eastern religions interacted with those in the west. A Christian clergyman and long-time resident in Japan at the turn of the 20th century, Arthur Lloyd felt that Buddhism has much in common with Christianity, including possible historical links. In this book he discusses doctrinal and narrative parallels between Mahayana Buddhism and early Christian, Gnostic, and Manichean beliefs.

Excellent insight into Religion 

I am not an avid reader and very rarely finished a book to its last page. But being I am Japanese and my Mothers religion is Buddhism and mine is Christian just reading the summary was enough to captivate me into reading this. The first chapter was insightful into learning more on my Mom religion and I am looking forward to reading til the very end.
