Gandhi – An Intro Reading Guide for Christians

February 1, 2018 — Leave a comment

 

This week marked the 70th anniversary of Gandhi’s assassination. 

The Church has much to learn from Gandhi’s life and teachings. In remembrance, we offer this brief introductory reading guide for Christians.

 
We’ve ordered this list in the order that we think the books should be read, and we offer a brief explanation of why each book was included. We’ve included excerpts of most the books via Google Books.
 

5.  Gandhi’s Printing Press: Experiments in Slow Reading

This is a little-known book on Gandhi that focuses on his early years in South Africa, but it is insightful for Christians wrestling with questions of how and why we read, and the relationships between our reading and the formation of our faith communities.
