Excerpt from Christianity Explained to a Hindu: Or Christianity and Hinduism Compared, Compiled From Bishop Caldwell, Rev. Nehemiah Goreh, Krishna Mohun Banerjea, and Other Writers One God created all men, and His religion is one. All other religions are the inventions of men, and displeasing in His sight. True Religion Needed - Suppose a cooly, after labouring all day, were paid with bad money. When he went to the bazaar in the evening to buy food for his hungry and weary body, what he Offered in payment would be refused as worthless. Suppose a man sold all his property to buy what he believed to be a precious diamond. If it turned out to be merely a piece of glass, he would. Have lost all in vain. SO it is with religion. Unless it is the true one, it will profit us nothing. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Author: Francis Clooney
Publisher: Oxford University Press
This volume offers an in-depth study of key themes common to the Hindu and Christian religious traditions. It redefines how we think about Hinduism, comparative study, and Christian theology. This book offers a bold new look at how traditions encounter one another, and how good comparisons are to be made. Redefining theology as an interreligious, comparative, dialogical, and confessional practice open to all people, it invites not only Hindus and Christians, but also theologians from all religious traditions, to enter into conversation with one another.

I have not explained that the world is finite . . . infinite , that the saints exist after
death . . . or do not exist after death . And why , Malunkyaputta , I have not explained this ? Because this profits not , nor has to do with the fundamentals of religion ...

With scientific background, the author has tried to synthesis these religions with sciences and has given the scientific analysis also. There shouldn't be any contradiction between Sciences and our Scriptures. If there is any contradiction, the religion must explain the reasons to justify its claim. This book informs about the differences between various religions, especially the Christianity and Hinduism. Some are trying to justify that Hindu Scriptures & Bible are same, but in fact it is just opposite. All religions say differently, are not alike and have their different goals. Scriptures are not an exclusive private property of Hindu's alone, but all humans on entire earth have equal right over it. Moreover it is a knowledge directly transferred to humans by God Himself, it can never be wrong. It is to be finding out, whether Christianity supports all the religions or say offensive, blasphemy statement on other religions? All religions say differently and not alike and have their different goals. It is true that few thousand years ago, Sciences were not so advanced but the Spiritual Science was definitely very much advanced as compared today. It is well planned mischief to say that Jesus was an Avatara of God and died for us for our sins. In fact he didn't die but was murdered /killed for charges of blasphemy. In the last 2000 years there have been about a million murders on street crossings in Europe on charges of blasphemy and witchcraft. Should we call all of the killed as an Avatara of God like Jesus and they have died for us? There have been some persons in the world, who are 1000 times more miraculous than Jesus, should we call them as Super Avatara of God or Super God? Due to rapid scientific and technological advancement, our old ideas and philosophies are changing and the new ideas and philosophies are taking births. Now the scientists have begun to realize that our basic identity in the world is neither mind, nor the physical body bounded by birth and death, nor time and space. But it is basically the infinite universal and eternal spirit with infinite cosmic consciousness. This consciousness is beyond time and space and is unaffected by death. The entire cosmos is a manifestation of universal consciousness. It is beyond limits, finite, eternal, and without boundaries. It is ultimately our real self. Why we have not realized this truth? The author has tried his best to remove their doubts and misconceptions. He has tried to convince that the sciences, the Scriptures, the Dharma and the yogic science are in perfect agreement with each other. There cannot be any contradiction between God, Dharma and the scientific laws. The Scriptures are not myths as propagated by western people with vested interested interests, but are full of truth. Science and the Scriptures are not contradictory to each other as said by some ignorant scientists and religions. Both are supplementing their knowledge to each other and ultimately leading to the same Absolute Complete Truth. The Scriptures doesn't the same as so-called 'Holy Books'.
In short , he declared his intention to eschew Hinduism . Naturally , the

The author took over the "St Peter's Chair for Christian Philosophy" at a Vaishnava theological college in Vrindaban, in order to start, in addition to his own study of various aspects of Hinduism, a department of "Christianity". In the course of two years, many things happened and this book is meant to relate experiences, thoughts and impressions that the author had. "To those who have no opportunity of entering into 'dialogue' with followers of other religions it may give a little insight into the reality of inward and outward dialogue with Hinduism."
