It is much more cosmological in scale and mystical in nature and has long been considered more esoteric. The Gospel of John in the Light of Indian Mysticism presents an unusual and rewarding exploration of this Christian text from a Hindu perspective as Ravi Ravindra takes us into the heart of St. John’s words, eloquently and convincingly revealing the interconnectedness of all faiths and the growing need in today’s world for interfaith dialogue. For those concerned with the emergence of a universal spirituality, Ravindra provides a source of light, a translucent pool of wisdom that offers from its depths an immense and lasting spiritual vision....

    I found Ravindra's book fresh and illuminating--one of the better attempts at interfaith dialogue that I have encountered. Instead of getting too broad, Ravindra keeps his focus on the Gospel of John, then relates the Gospel line by line to Indian Mystical Tradition. This book offers a model for effective inter-faith dialogue... Just focus on a particular text from another faith tradition and compare it meaningfully to one's own tradition. Inter-faith dialogue is most constructive when it is focused and when one is firmly rooted in one's own tradition. Bravo!-Amos Smith (author of Healing The Divide: Recovering Christianity's Mystic Roots)

    "The Gospel of John in the Light of Indian Mysticism" is one of the books in the primary bibliography of my free ebook on comparative mysticism. "The greatest achievement in life" at suprarational.org/gail2012.pdf has been reviewed on Goodreads.

    When I picked this book up, I thought this guy was going to give equal time to both Christian and Hindu traditions. Ravi is apparently a full-on Christian. The farther the book went, the less and less Hindu philosophy was presented. I was disappointed.
