While Hinduism and other eastern faiths are known to the West, only Buddhism has made any significant amount of converts. "Buddha & Jesus: Could Solomon Be the Missing Link?" discusses the potential links that Buddhism shares with the western Abrahamic faiths of Christianity and Judaism. Theorizing that a colony of Jews reached India around the time of the Buddha, the exposure to the education of Solomon lead people of the region to take the teachings to heart even if they did not embrace the faith. Drawing parallels between Christ and the Buddha, the unity between the two, and discussing the meeting of philosophies thousands of years ago, "Buddha & Jesus" is an excellent and recommended pick for community library religious collections.
