The following books may be good starting points, while they are not
explicitly focused on the comparative aspects, they do touch upon it:
by Rene Guenon:
- Symbolism of the Cross
- Insights into Christian Esoterism
by Frithjof Schuon
- The Fullness of God: Frithjof Schuon on Christianity
by Ananda Coomaraswamy
- The Door in the Sky
A note of caution; while these scholars are very well versed in their
traditions; they belong to the 'Sophia Perrinis' group and believe in what
they call as 'the transcendent unity of religions'; sometimes, this makes
them come up with positions that seem a little idiosyncratic or contrived
(an example is Coomaraswamy's position on rebirth). That said, most of these
authors' writings are replete with comparative religion and theology.
p.s: Amazon seems to carry these as well.
