The Pipe and Christ A Christian-Sioux Dialogue
By: William Stolzman, SJ
From Back Cover
Searching for understanding, he consulted the medicine men and pastors of the Rosebud Indian Reservation to help him reconcile the many apparent theological and spiritual incompatibilities between these two religions. A subsequent six-year dialogue was fruitful, and it showed how the Lakota and Christian religions are both parallel and different -- each having an enduring, authentic place in salvation history.
The medicine men and elders at those meetings asked that The Pipe and Christ be written to explain the native rituals and how they are related to the Christian way. Like early German Jesuit missionaries, William Stolzman, whose Indian name is Wanbli Tokah (First Eagle), shows in an orderly, clear, and precise way that the medicine men were right when they said that "the two religions fit together."
