Opening a Window to the Thought of Paulos Mar Gregorios
John D Kunnathu
Gregorian Vision introduces the thought-world of Paulos Mar Gregorios, the Christian Philosopher from india.
Paulos Mar Gregorios (1922-1996) was a prominent leader of the interreligious and the ecumenical movement at the global level in the past century. He left us with a rich heritage of invaluable books and research papers. Although the academic world is familiar with his thought, the general readers, particularly of the younger generation, seem to be unaware of his contributions. Sometimes people even complain that the books and papers of Paulos Mar Gregorios are, by and large, too hard to understand. Those who are conversant with the writings of Mar Gregorios know only too well that such complaints are not unfounded. So a lucid but systematic exposition of His Grace's thoughts and ideas is called for and this book is expected to answer this need.
Born in India in the Eastern Orthodox tradition of Christianity, John Kunnathu has been exposed to several other religious traditions as well. His first-hand experience of life in Africa as well as in the US as an educator has given him a global and multicultural perspective, which is clearly reflected in his literary work. John has graduate degrees in English literature and Education. He is currently working on another one in Religious Studies. Accepting Mar Gregorios as his spiritual mentor and hero, John took consistent research interest in following the evolution of the thought of His Grace and thus qualified himself to comment on him and his ideas. John is an author of several books, which can be seen here.
This book is presented as an invitation to all people to join the author in his exciting adventure of exploring the thought-world of Mar Gregorios. This is also meant to be an inspiration for anyone intending to attempt similar studies on the work of Mar Gregorios.
Being an educator, the author has written this book with the young people in mind. This book may be used as a study material in youth meetings and at the higher levels of Sunday schools. This book will be beneficial to the general readers as well who are interested in learning more about the thought and theology of Mar Gregorios.
