Cool New Book for you Pure Land Folks

The Promise of Amida Buddha.
A significant collection of Honen Shonins works.
Really cool stuff even if one isnt a Pure Land practitioner.

This book was delayed for months.

Thanks Nangwa!

I just got my copy of "The Promise of Amida Buddha" in the mail today. The cover art is nice too.

Just found this site & so propitious. We're going to be having a book discussion of this very text over here:
http://groups.google.com/group/jodoshubuddhism

Don't want or mean to take the discussion away from here, in fact I'll tell our group members about this website too. Gosh I missed e-sangha.

FYI the groups has two Jodo Shu ordained priests, Stephen and Shinri there, answering questions etc.
