Taiwan Mission Quarterly


The Modern Face of Buddhism

Volume 13 Number 4 (Summer 2004)


In This Issue

We hear of new Buddhist hospitals, schools and even Universities. All these new Buddhist ventures seem to be welcomed by both the people and the media, and always get good reports in the papers as well as on TV. In contrast Christianity is still not widely accepted, and its message is little understood by the majority of the population. The articles in this edition of the magazine will help us understand both the recent changes in Buddhist thinking, and the way people in Taiwan think, and how they view the world, as well as giving us helpful apologetic material for discussion with our non-Christians friends especially in the area of understanding the Hungry Ghost month.
