Robyn,

Try reading "Living Buddha, Living Christ" by Thich Naht Hanh. It's easy and fast reading if you want it to be. Its all about this subject. Of course, if your paper is due in a few days, then maybe a book is not what you're looking for! :)

If you do have time, you may also read the writings of Evagrios the Solitary from volume 1 of the English translation of the Philokalia (a collection of teachings of early Christian Fathers). Read it and compare what he teaches to the stages of Buddhist meditation. It may surprise you.

Good luck,
David
