Endorsements

This new collection of his writings will help to make Paulos Mar Gregorios's thought more widely available.

"Paulos Mar Gregorios was one of the great theologians of the 20th century. Orthodox and progressive, traditional and modern, Indian and ‘Western,’ Mar Gregorios defies simple categorization. His work spans many different disciplines, because no single discipline could contain his creative mind. Until now, most of his books and essays were published in India and were not easy to get hold of. This new collection of his writings will help to make his thought more widely available. I believe he would hope that it would stimulate further reflection on the subjects he so deeply cared about."

Philip L. Wickeri | Advisor to the Archbishop on Historical and Theological Studies, Hong Kong Sheng Kung Hui (Anglican Church)

Mar Gregorios's deep knowledge of ancient and modern cultural traditions and his erudite search for  bridging the gap between the secular and the transcendent come out brilliantly in this book.

"The many diverse themes and issues addressed by the versatile mind of Dr. Gregorios are all woven around his vision of a  new humanity and a new order of  the world rooted in justice, peace and love. The interdisciplinary character of his writings is particularly striking today as our world desperately needs a  convergence of scientific rationality and  other forms of  human  creativity. Mar Gregorios's deep knowledge of ancient and modern cultural traditions and his erudite search for  bridging the gap between the secular and the transcendent come out brilliantly in this book."

Babu Sebastian | Vice Chancellor, Mahatma Gandhi University, Kerala, India

A superb selection of writings of Metropolitan Paulos Mar Gregorios, a genius with universal knowledge of science, philosophy and different cultures and religions.

"A superb selection of writings of Metropolitan Paulos Mar Gregorios, a genius with universal knowledge of science, philosophy and different cultures and religions. One of the few “renaissance polymath” of the 20th century who had crossed not only geographical boundaries but also those of mindsets and different forms of knowledge, Metropolitan Paulos Mar Gregorios was recognized as an outstanding leader in church and society worldwide.  He inspired many people in the ecumenical movement – this book shows why this was the case."

Martin Robra | World Council of Churches, Geneva

This long-overdue compendium is an indispensable companion to the understanding of traditional and modern theology.

"Paulos Mar Gregorios’ significance as a theologian, philosopher, and ecumenical giant extends far beyond India. Yet his geographic and cultural context is part of what makes his voice, in the diverse fields to which he contributed, so original and important. This long-overdue compendium is an indispensable companion to the understanding of traditional and modern theology."
