Christianity for Hindus

 
Arvind Sharma (Editor)
Synopsis

Christianity is the World's largest religion today: about 33.6 per cent of the world’s largest population has Christianity as their religion. It has also a religion that struck roots early in India- as early as middle of the first century CE. The book is an account on Christianity that blends aspects of Christian belief and worship with matters like its significances and the urgent need for interfaith understanding in the globalised and pluralistic societies today. It is meant for non-Christians, Particularly Hindus, who are keen to understand the essential aspects of the religion. In simple language, the work reveals the essence of the Christian Beliefs, its spread over history and its prevalence now, and its importance as a world religion. It examines doctrines of the church, significance of Jesus Christ, and Historical forms of Christianity like Romans Catholicism, Eastern Orthodoxy and Protestantism. It examines the history of Christianity in India. The interesting work refers to a number of religious works on Christianity and writings of men who commented on Christianity and personified its value like love, compassion and sacrifice. It also deals with some controversial features of the religion like its need to proselytize.
