Rick McDaniel’s Catholicism and Zen offers a glimpse into the experience of Zen through the eyes of Catholic teachers, lay, clergy, and religious. Based on a series of interviews with Catholic practitioners of Zen, it offers insight into a complementary relationship that can exist between Zen and the Catholic spiritual experience. For the Catholic who has little experience of Zen, this work provides an accessible introduction. Father John Jennings, Dept of History (Ret.), Saint Thomas University, Fredericton

Rick McDaniel’s study, interviews, and writing shed an abundance of light on all that many of us have learned thus far from the West. Deep gratitude is offered to Rick as we continue to make use of much of what he has unearthed from the East. Sr. Pascaline Coff, OSB, Benedictine Sisters Our Lady of Rickenbach

Reading Catholicism and Zen you’ll hear categories collapsing – Christian/Buddhist, East/West, and mysticism/daily life. Rick McDaniel brings to life a most remarkable development in religion through the real-life stories and perspectives of women and men engaged in the spiritual quest who discover and enliven the meaning and form of awakening beyond traditional constrictions. Dosho Port Roshi, Nebraska Zen Center

Rick McDanielRichard Bryan McDaniel taught at the University of New Brunswick and Saint Thomas University before starting a 27-year career in International Development and Fair Trade. He is the creator of the YMCA Peace Medallion. A long time Zen practitioner, he lives in Fredericton, NB. This is his fifth book in a series on the evolution of Zen Buddhism as it moved from China to Japan and the West.

His other two books published by Sumeru are The Third Step East: Zen Masters of America and Cypress Trees in the Garden: The Second Generation of Zen Teaching in America.
