I Once was a Buddhist Nun

Full Product Description

Suddenly I found myself, with my shaven head and dark-brown robe, running down to the traditional Anglican church in the nearby village ... I thought, 'I've got to talk to somebody, I've got to understand what's happening to me.'

Esther Baker had been a Buddhist for over thirteen years. Her search for truth drove her up through the ranks of a Buddhist nun and deeper into a life of meditation and detachment from the world. But then, one day, alone in her room, the perfect shadow of a cross fell on her wall, and, unbidden, Christ began to enter her life. Would anything ever be the same again?

I Once was a Buddhist Nun by Esther Baker was published by Intervarsity Press in June 2009 and is our 14454th best seller. The ISBN for I Once was a Buddhist Nun is 9781844743841.

'I highly recommend this book to all seekers of the truth and all who long to see if Jesus is real today.'

Jackie Pullinger

'Sometimes the best guides to discovering Jesus Christ are those who can articulate the darkness they have walked in and their revelation of the true light. Esther Baker is one such guide.'

From the foreword by Andrew Comiskey

'A simple and genuine story.'

Martin Goldsmith

'Esther's story is a beautiful one, an accounting of Christ's shepherding hand, as she is led out from under a deeply blinding idolatry and into his eternal life-giving light and tender love.'

Leanne Payne
