    Title: A Baptist Preacher's Buddhist Teacher
    Sub-title: How My Interfaith Journey with Daisaku Ikeda Made Me a Better Christian
    By (author): Lawrence Edward Carter Sr.
    ISBN10-13: 0977924599 : 9780977924592
    In this inspiring, soul-stirring memoir, Lawrence E. Carter Sr., founding dean of the Martin Luther King Jr. International Chapel, shares his remarkable quest to experience King's "beloved community" and his surprising discovery in mid-life that King's dream was being realized by the Japanese Buddhist philosopher and tireless peace worker Daisaku Ikeda. Coming of age on the cusp of the American Civil Rights Movement, Carter was personally mentored by Martin Luther King Jr. and followed in his footsteps, first to get an advanced degree in theology at Boston University and then to teach and train a new generation of activists and ministers at King's alma mater, Morehouse College. Over the years, however, Carter was disheartened to watch the radical cosmic vision at the heart of King's message gradually diluted and marginalized. He found himself in near despair—until his remarkable encounter with the lay Buddhist association Soka Gakkai International and a life-changing meeting with Ikeda, its president. Carter knew that King had been inspired by Gandhi, a Hindu, and now Ikeda, a Buddhist, was showing him how King's message of justice, equality, and the fundamental dignity of life could be carried to millions of people around the world. What ensued was not a conversion but a conversation—about the essential role of interfaith dialogue, the primacy of education, and the value of a living faith to create a human revolution and realize at last Martin Luther King's truest dream of a global world house. In these dark and frustrating times, the powerful dialogue between Carter and Ikeda gives hope and guidance to a new generation of reformers, activists, and visionaries.
    Reviews:
    "Carter's story should inspire and disturb all of us as it challenges our cherished and comforting assumptions, our tightly held claims and possessions, our glib tropes, including those about about home, race, religion, self." —Vincent L. Wimbush, Director, Institute for Signifying Scriptures
    "Carter tells the story of his interfaith pilgrimage with Daisaku Ikeda, and how Ikeda's challenge has led him to a new self-understanding, renewed hope, and a revitalized faith. This is the kind of book that can literally change a person's life." —Lewis V. Baldwin, Emeritus Professor of Religious Studies, Vanderbilt University
    "Carter is a truly cosmopolitan global preacher and thinker. From his American, South Asian, and East Asian religious identity, he is a true disciple of Jesus, the most distant of all his mentors, carrying on Jesus' work in extraordinarily creative ways. Read this book!" —Robert Cummings Neville, Professor of Philosophy, Religion, and Theology, and Dean emeritus of the School of Theology and Marsh Chapel, Boston University
    "This beautifully written memoir is a testament to the power of the inward journey toward existential discovery, a pursuit too often impeded by social barriers. Universal and immanent, truth beckons to us beyond the boundaries of geography, nomenclature, or faith tradition. It will draw us nearer, Carter teaches, if only we muster the intellectual courage to let it light our path." —Larry O. Rivers, Associate Professor of History, University of West Georgia

    Title: Choose Hope
    Sub-title: Your Role in Waging Peace in the Nuclear Age
    By (author): David Krieger, Daisaku Ikeda Translated by: Richard L. Gage
    ISBN10-13: 0967469767 : 9780967469768
    This moving dialogue between an American and a Japanese peace activist makes the compelling argument that ordinary people can and must guide their leaders to a safer and saner future free from a nuclear menace. This balance of Western and Eastern perspectives reveals how the development of true peace can grow only when narrow national loyalties are surpassed by a shared global vision. Inspiring examples of individuals working for an end to the nuclear threat showcase the role everyday people can play in the quest for peace. Particular encouragement is given to young people to build on their natural idealism to shape the world they will inherit.

    Title: For the Sake of Peace
    Sub-title: Seven Paths to Global Harmony: A Buddhist Perspective
    By (author): Daisaku Ikeda
    ISBN10-13: 0967469791 : 9780967469799
    Based on 20 years of university lectures and proposals to the United Nations, this book addresses the issue of peace from the Buddhist perspective of compassion, interconnectedness of all life, and absolute respect for human life. Informed by the teachings of Nichiren, the 13th-century Japanese Buddhist teacher and reformer, this book considers peace from various angles, including economics, the environment, disarmament, religion, and culture. Asserting that nothing is more precious than peace, this guide affirms that through self-mastery, dialogue, and belief in the sovereignty of the people, the world may come to know a peaceful existence.

    Title: Nichiren
    By (author): Masahiko Murakami Illustrated by: Ken Tanaka
    ISBN10-13: 0977924572 : 9780977924578
    In 13th-century Japan, disease, famine, violence, and natural disasters plague society. Samurai lords, blinded by power, shirk any responsibility to protect the citizenry. Religious leaders care more about currying favor with the powerful than helping common people find hope and a positive way to deal with their suffering. But one unknown Buddhist monk dares to speak the truth to power: Nichiren remonstrates with the authorities. He insists that all human life is precious and that the government needs to change its ways and become of service to the people. He criticizes the established religions as being merely pawns of the state, who teach ideas that only further the people's sense of powerlessness. The true purpose of Buddhism, he asserts, is to teach people a way to empower themselves, challenge their destiny, and experience happiness in this life. Based on actual events, this exciting comic touches on major milestones in Nichiren's life interwoven with basic Buddhist principles. This real-life adventure story will captivate readers as it illustrates the life of one courageous human being who stopped at nothing to bring happiness to the people and peace to the land.
