This is the website of John P. Keenan,
Christian theologian and scholar of Mahayana Buddhism.
"Mahayana theology" is a Christian theology that
is informed by the philosophical wisdom of Mahayana Buddhism. Just as the early Church Fathers first employed ancient Greek
philosophy to articulate the Christian faith, one may employ this ancient Buddhist philosophy to restate that same faith and thereby come
to new and somewhat different understandings.
John is working on several projects for near-future publication. Working titles include:
- Grounding our Faith in a Pluralist World—with a little help from Nagarjuna;
- The Eagle and the Dragon: Reading the Heart Sutra through John's Gospel; and
- lower case catholic—what the buddha did for me.
