Item Description...
(From the Publisher): Mohandas Gandhi is widely revered as one of the great moral prophets of the twentieth century. This book focuses on a less well-known area of his interest: his engagement with Jesus and Christianity. Throughout his life, Gandhi conducted an ongoing dialogue with Christian believers and missionaries. As a faithful Hindu, he was unwilling to accept Christian dogma. In Jesus, however, he recognized and revered on of history's great prophets of nonviolence. His criticism of contemporary Christianity was the failure of most Christians to embody the radical and revolutionary faith and action of Christ.

More About Mahatma Gandhi

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! The name of Mohandas K. Gandhi (1869-1948) is one of the most widely recognized in the world. His Autobiography has been translated into all the major languages. In the first half of his life, Gandhi suffered from a debilitating shyness. After practicing law in South Africa and India, in his middle and later years, Gandhi was recurrently in contact with the man who would inspire his assassination. Gandhi's life of peace thus always had a tragic dimension. His assassination occurred on January 30, 1948, virtually in conjunction with the declared independence of India and Pakistan.

Mohandas Gandhi was born in 1869 and died in 1948.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A Contribution to Religious Tolerance and Peace  Sep 17, 2001
Mahatma Gandhi has answers to many of the problems faced by our modern world, going through insurmountable issues of religious intolerance. "I believe in Sarvadharamsamanvatva 'having equal regard for all faiths and creeds'," Gandhi said, professing all religions to be true. He wrote, "Religions are not for separating men from one another, they are meant to bring them together. It is a misfortune that today they are so distorted that they have become a potential cause of strife and mutual slaughter." No wonder, he was not in favor of conversion through proselytizing. He also considered it intolerance to believe that one's religion was superior to others'. That was his principal complaint against the preaching of the Christian missionaries. Today, more than half a century after his death, Gandhi's advice to the Christian missionaries is taken more seriously in the Indian subcontinent. Gandhi held Jesus Christ in high esteem and the 'sermon of the mount' altered his life style. As Vincent Sheehan put it, "The most Christ-like man in history was not a Christian at all."

This magnificent book edited by Robert Ellsberg summarizes Gandhi's views on Jesus and Christianity. Part I of the book lays out Gandhi's own views through excerpts from his own writings, neatly arranged into four chapters. Part II has articles from Christian activists from USA, India and Bangladesh reflecting on the Gandhian view. It is an excellent book for any student of Christianity and a must-read for a missionary of any faith. It would have been beneficial to a student if there was an extensive bibliography on the subject included. This book has an important role in promoting tolerance and peace among religions and Robert Ellsberg deserves commendation.
