SORRY!  After thinking about this during my shower I want to CORRECT my post
as follows:

'Christian Zen' is actually a good term for this.  In fact it is the 'Zen
Buddhism' term we should change to 'Buddhist Zen'.  In English the adjective
(modifier) is BEFORE the noun.

The point is to make sure it correctly describes the RELATIOSHIP between
these two concepts:  zen is the superset, and Christianity and Buddhism are
sub-sets.  Zen precedes and is the basis for these religions.  These two
religions are just different 'flavors' or expressions of zen.  Since they
are both religions they have tenets, rules, doctrines, terms, etc., that are
specific to them.  Zen is not a religion as is all-inclusive.

Hope this helps.Bill!

Al,  IMNSHO the term is more properly Zen Christianity (as in Zen Buddhism).
It would be a practice of zen from a Christian perspective using Christian
writings and dogma, and talking about zen in Christian terms.
