Kenneth Doo Young Lee is Assistant Professor of Religious Studies at California State University at Northridge. Shotoku Buddhism is very interesting, and there is good reasoning as to why it is interesting. Unless one is completely educated in Buddhism and all the terminology it is also hard to understand at times there is only Japanese words being used.

Shinran's Buddhism developed centuries later during the Kamakura period, which began in the late twelfth century. Kenneth Doo Young Lee discusses Shinran's liturgical text, his dream of Shōtoku's manifestation as Kannon (the world-saving Bodhisattva of Compassion), and other relevant events during his life. In addition, this book shows that Shinran's Buddhism was consistent with honji suijaku culture-the synthesis of the Shinto and Buddhist pantheons-prevalent during the Kamakura period.

This book has an interesting topic. Shotoku Buddhism is very interesting, and there is good reasoning as to why it is interesting. However that is the only plus to this book, the author repeats himself several times through out the book reiterating the same point over and over. Unless one is completely educated in Buddhism and all the terminology it is also hard to understand at times there is only Japanese words being used. Ultimately it gets the rating that it does because of the fact that although there was a good point, the continuous repetition of it, makes it boring to read. The history of Shotoku is fascinating in itself so perhaps a different book would be better.
