Don Cupitt: Christian Buddhist?

Religious Studies 31 (3):359 - 373 (1995)
It is more than a decade since English theologian Don Cupitt claimed to espouse a 'Christian Buddhism'. He has since made extensive use of and reference to Buddhist ideas in his work. A comparison between Buddhist thought (of the Madhyamaka and Zen schools) and the thinking of Cupitt demonstrates that in concepts, attitudes and methods there are many similarities and points of contact. Finally and fundamentally, however, there are differences, notably concerning solutions for the human predicament: where Buddhism plots to escape this insubstantial 'conventional' world, Cupitt accepts it as inescapable and recommends wholehearted involvement in it.
