    Relevance of Non-violence Today.

    Mahatma Gandhi has become relevant again; he answers many of the problems confronted by the modern world like religious intolerance and terrorism. More than half a century ago he said, 'I believe in Sarvadharamsamanvatva 'having equal regard for all faiths and creeds',' and he maintained 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 shot dead by the extremists. He 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, Gandhi's advice to the Christian missionaries is taken more seriously in the Indian subcontinent than ever before. He had a contribution to the evangelization work in India. 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.' Therefore his views should be given greater importance. Robert Ellsberg summarizes Gandhi's views on Jesus and Christianity in this 117-page volume. Part I of the book is an anthology of Gandhi's 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. This book has an important role in promoting tolerance and peace among religions and hence Robert Ellsberg's contribution deserves wide attention.
