John Martin Sahajananda is a Camaldolese monk and anma cara at the Shantivanam Ashram in South India. In this book he embraces the insights of the Indian religious traditions to deliver a profound vision for the renewal of Christianity. He believes that the West has reduced the eternal Word revealed in the stable to the God and Father of Jesus Christ, and in doing so has divided Christians from non-Christians and closed the door to the God of eternity. The God of eternity is greater than the god of memory and tradition. It is the direct experience of him alone that can break down the barriers caused in the name of the god of memory and heal the wounds of division in our world. The past cannot unite us - it is only the God of the future who can unite humanity.
