9788185843971: Ramakrishna and Christ, or, The paradox of the incarnation

translated from the German by John Phillips

The author regards himself as a Christian, yet he found treasures within the teachings of Hinduism.

The doctrine of the incarnation, of the divine word becoming flesh, is the real core of Christianity. But the concept is not not as unique as some would think. For Hinduism, incarnation is considered natural and a part of life.

This book deals both with the things that bring Chritianity and Hinduism together and those that separate them.The author says, "The subject of the incarnation is a continual preoccupation with me, because I see in Christ an incarnation of God and because I believe that a study of Ramakrishna throws a little more light on this mystery and therby on Christ as well. "

From the Publisher:

Ever since Sri Ramakrishna had the unique spiritual experience in which he and Christ embraced each other and Christ merged into him, several studies on the two have been published....

Hans Torwesten's practical and direct encounter with philosophy and religion in both India and Europe has earned him a unique place not achieved by earlier scholars.His writing is an honest endeavor to unravel the mystery of the "Incarnation" as revealed in the lives of Christ and Ramakrishna.

From the Author:

The doctrine of the incarnation of the divine word becoming flesh is the real core of Christian teaching. The Christian teaching, however,is not so completely unique. To the Hindu, there is an almost too willing acceptance of the concept as natural. For what natural things are seldom unique. - they repeat themselves, just as nature does.
