Foregleams of God: A Comparative Study of Hinduism, Buddhism and Christianity

 
T. Issac Tambyah (Author)
Synopsis This book written during the colonial period subverts much of what has been written about the colonial production of knowledge. It is a sincere and scholarly work that tries to go beyond the narrow frontiers of divisiveness to uphold that fact that all regions speak of only one truth. In an era where the world is increasingly becoming fundamentalist and driven by violence based on religion, a book like this will be an eye opener for many. Written by a British scholar of the Asiatic Society it heralds back to the golden age when the British had high regard for India and its wisdom, the days of Colebrooke and Jones. Based upon well researched and scholarly data this book may be accepted apart from its theological content as sociology of the colonial period. Viewed from a historiography of colonialism, it represents a stage when the relationship of the British and the Indian was yet to be overtaken by complete establishment of sovereignty of the rulers. This book thus transcends the narrow frontiers of a book of religion to become a historical and a sociological document as well as data for a political analysis of colonial rule. For the intellectuals looking into theological philosophy it provides rich material to stimulate the mind.
