This collection of previously unpublished essays argues that Zen actualy has a rich and varied literary heritage, contrary to its image as a teaching outside of scripture. Among the most significant textual genres are hagiographic accounts and recorded sayings of Zen masters, koan collections and commentaries, and rules for monastic life.

The essays include: Canon and Canonicity in the History of the Zen Literary Tradition by Stephen Heine and Dale Wright; Tsung-mi's Zen Prolegomenon by Jeff Broughton; Mazu yula and the Creation of the Chan Record of Sayings by Mario Poceski; the Lidai fabao ji, or Record of the Dharma Jewel Through the Ages by Wendi Adamek; the Huang Po Literature by Dale Wright; Lineage and Context in the Patriarch's Hall Collection and the Transmission of the Lamp by Albert Welter; the Record of Hongzhi and the Recorded Sayings Literature of Song Dynasty Chan by Morten Schlutter; the Wu-men Kuan (Mumonkan): the Formation, Propagation, and Characteristics of a Classic Koan Text by Isshii Shudo; the Eihei Koroku: the Record of Dogen's Later Period at Eihei-ji Temple by Steven Heine; and Chanyuan qinggui and Other Rules of Purity in Chinese Buddhism by T.Griffith Foulk.
