With so many ministers quoting the Bible to prove their beliefs (What would Jesus do?), it's interesting to refresh our minds and read the actual sayings attributed to Jesus.
This book burns with renunciation. Sw. Prabhavananda said that the teachings of Christ are meant more for monks and nuns. He meant that to really follow Christ's teachings, it's much easier to be a monastic.But swami also said to keep the ideal before you.
The book shows Christ as one who upset the religious establishment of the time preaching love and forgiveness, and total dependence on God.
