    Abstract

    There are immediately obvious parallels between the ways Buddhist and Christian faith have been systematised, but the differences are also profound. Buddhists are now starting to use the term 'theology', even though strictly speaking God does not appear in Buddhism. Incarnation, Trinity, mercy and grace, social ethics and attitudes to nature may all be correlated, to the point where some people regard themselves as both Buddhists and Christians. A methodology for theological collaboration is yet to be worked out, but the prospect is opening up.
