About the book;
Destined to become a classic, The Promise of Immortality is the most complete commentary available on the parallel passages in the Bible and India's ancient scripture, the Bhagavad Gita. This groundbreaking book illuminates the similarities between the scriptures of the world's two most populous religions, vibrantly bringing each to life. Walters sheds light on many of the famous passages from both the texts, showing their practical relevance for the modern day and their potential to help us achieve lasting spiritual transformation. His elucidation of the ancient texts inspires us with convincing answers to questions long considered imponderable, such as: Why is everyone destined to become "Christ-like"? Why are good works alone not enough? Why is love the most powerful force? What is the true meaning of the golden rule? Are material desires spiritually harmful? What is the best way to read the scriptures? How do I find a true teacher? Through its answers to such questions, The Promise of Immortality will renew your faith and recharge your soul. It clarifies apparent differences in religious teachings to reveal timeless, underlying truth. Walters makes a convincing case for the potential unity of all religious belief, and the possibility of an unprecedented era of cooperation among the world's religions.
