en Limba Engleză Carte Paperback – August 2004

Explores St. John's Gospel from an Eastern perspective to reveal the interconnectedness of all faiths and the need for interfaith dialogue
- Takes readers beyond academic and historical analyses by exploring the mystical foundation of the Gospel
- Includes the full text of the Gospel of John interwoven with passage-by-passage interpretations
The Gospel of John is different from the other canonical gospels in its overall point of view concerning Jesus Christ and his mission on earth. It is much more cosmological in scale and mystical in nature and has long been considered more esoteric. "The Gospel of John in the Light of Indian Mysticism" presents an unusual and rewarding exploration of this Christian text from a Hindu perspective as Ravi Ravindra takes us into the heart of St. John's words, eloquently and convincingly revealing the interconnectedness of all faiths and the growing need in today's world for interfaith dialogue. For those concerned with the emergence of a universal spirituality, Ravindra provides a source of light, a translucent pool of wisdom that offers from its depths an immense and lasting spiritual vision.

MYSTICISM / CHRISTIAN STUDIES "Catches the tone and spirit of St. John and this gospel's profound coherence with other traditions, particularly the Hindu tradition in India and of course the Bhagavad Gita." --Father Thomas Berry, coauthor of The Universe Story "A dazzlingly brilliant spiritual and cross-cultural study of the most mystical of the books of the Bible, the Gospel of John. Few will finish this book unchanged, either intellectually or spiritually." --, Robert Ellwood author of The Cross and the Grail "Shows the benefits that cross-cultural perspectives can bring, helping readers to see with the heart as well as the head. . . . The best study of St. John's Gospel that I have found." --James George, Parabola The Gospel of John differs notably from the other canonical gospels in its overall point of view concerning Jesus Christ and his mission on earth: It is much more cosmological in scale and mystical in nature and has long been considered more esoteric. In The Gospel of John in the Light of Indian Mysticism Ravi Ravindra explores this scripture--which he considers one of the world's great spiritual texts--from a Hindu perspective, taking us into the heart of St. John's words. His commentary on the verses in the gospel eloquently and convincingly reveals the interconnectedness of all faiths and the growing need in today's world for interfaith dialogue. For those concerned with the emergence of a universal spirituality, Ravindra provides a source of light, a translucent pool of wisdom that offers from its depths an immense and lasting spiritual vision.
