Gandhi and Jesus is an insightful look at Christian salvation in light of Gandhis idea of nonviolent resistance. While Christianity has described salvation as ""Jesus making satisfaction for humanitys sin,"" this has paradoxically lead to an increase in and acceptance of violence. To Gandhi, however, a commitment to nonviolence was at the center of what Jesus taught, lived and died for and influenced his own teachings on satyagraha. Reflecting on what Gandhi, a confirmed Hindu, took from the life and teachings of Jesus is very illuminating for a Christian.Terrence J. Rynne
