This section aims to inform about works, texts, people etc. that, even if not directly, contribute to the Gospel of Interpretation and promote the approach of Christianity and Buddhism. And in so doing, to some extent they can fit in the spirit of the following statement by Anna Kingsford and Edward Mailtland:
“They who seek to wed Buddha to Jesus are of the celestial and upper; and they who interpose to forbid the banns are of the astral and nether”. [The Perfect Way; or, the Finding of Christ, p. 256]
We believe that with the development of the works of the Gospel of Interpretation and, therefore, of Buddhist Christianity (of the Wheel and Cross), new subsections may appear here. For now, we have chosen some works or texts as examples of works that, even if not explicitly, or indirectly, promote the Gospel of Interpretation and the approximation of Christianity and Buddhism:
