Bruteau's response was a series of five easily accessible, nontechnical reflections on various aspects of Hinduism and Buddhism offered generally as interpretations of Christian practices or texts.

Bruteau's interpretations of Christian texts are often insightful and may spark further exploration and dialogue with the East
