Powerful suff! Thank you for posting this. Adele


Jonny...this is very exciting :-) A random assortmentof people have been quoting me bits of this, and suggesting I read it for an alarmingly long time,- but nobody ever seemed to know the author, and there was never quite enough impetus to make me seek it out. I think you've just done this...REALLY up there with Donovan?? That's got to be a find and half, then!


no worries, mate.
glad you enjoyed it.
E. Stanley Jones was a bit before his time and we keep finding him a rich source of radical missiology.
...and thanks for the link to the conference in melbourne.

I've spent 12 years writing a book ,now trying to have published, about my life. I had 12 near deaths then died , when I came back' Id been taken over by the spirit of Cheif Joseph, sounded nuts at first, it wasen't. I saw that Christ was an Indian and lived in the u.s for years. I was given gifts, healing and seeing so much. He never died, he lived in India then came here.

I first read “The Christ of the Indian Road” when I was 20 and it impacted me so powerfully, that it has molded my approach to life as a Christian ever since. Most powerful was this truth as found in the book; “It is not enough to be a Christian. We must be Christ-like.” There are fewer truer statements than this. I am 58 now - one wonders where the fruit of his writings can be found? In my own personal life, for sure, and in the quiet, personal lives of others learning to separate the Christian religion as it has evolved, especially in the American media, from the true and pure Christ.
