Gandhi on Christianity

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. As a faithful Hindu, he was unwilling to accept Christian dogma, but in Jesus he recognized and revered one of history's great prophets of nonviolence.

I believe that Gandhi understood Jesus' message far better than the mass of Christendom. He is an amazing example of philosophy begetting practice, and practice begetting philosophy.

Gandhi was more christian than the vast majority of Christians. In this great book I learned that one's birth religion is probably the "right" one for them--that all serious religions are good and they all are also imperfect. Mostly, however, it was from Gandhi that I became convinced to read Tolstoy's Kingdom of God is Within You. The philosophy of these two men have profoundly affected the way I live my life.

An interesting critique of dogmatic religion in general and dogmatic Christianity in particular, criticism I agree with personally. This publisher, Orbis, always has interesting and provocative books.
