Proclaimed by Paramhansa Yogananda Presented by His Disciple, Swami Kriyananda
This galvanizing book, presenting the teachings of Christ from the experience and perspective of Paramhansa Yogananda, one of the greatest spiritual masters of the twentieth century, finally offers the fresh perspective on Christ's teachings for which the world has been waiting.
This book presents us with an opportunity to understand and apply the Scriptures in a more reliable way than any other: by studying under those saints who have communed directly, in deep ecstasy, with Christ and God.
Recently, The Da Vinci Code took the fictionalization of Christianity to dizzying new heights, precipitating a spiritual crisis for millions of believers worldwide. But The Da Vinci Code is only the latest in what has become a near-constant questioning of long-cherished religious beliefs.
For years, our faith has been severely shaken by a growing series of attacks, including: the breakdown of church authority, the repeated discovery of ancient texts that supposedly contradict long-held beliefs, and the sometimes outlandish historical analyses of Scripture by academics.
Together, these forces have helped create a spiritual vacuum filled with substantial confusion and uncertainty about the true teachings and meanings of Christ's life. The rising tide of alternative beliefs proves that now, more than ever, people are yearning for a clear-minded, convincing, yet uplifting understanding of the life and teachings of Jesus Christ.
Swami Kriyananda (J. Donald Walters) is widely considered one of the world's foremost experts on spiritual practice and personal development. He was recently appointed to membership in the prestigious Club of Budapest, thereby joining such world-renowned figures as the Dalai Lama, Desmond Tutu, Mikhail Gorbachev, and Jane Goodall among others.
Kriyananda has in his lifetime lectured, taught, and written eighty-five books based on Yogananda's teachings that have sold over 3 million copies worldwide and have been translated into 27 languages.
Paramhansa Yogananda is the author of dozens of books including Autobiography of a Yogi, which has sold millions of copies worldwide, and is widely recognized as a spiritual classic. One of the first to bring yoga teachings to the West, he is considered one of the most influential spiritual teachers of the 20th century.

"This book is a great gift to humanity. It is a spiritual treasure to cherish deep in the heart, and to pass on to children for generations. This remarkable and magnificent book brings us to the doorway of a deeper, richer embracing of Eternal Truth. At once crystal clear and wonderfully insightful, we are invited to move through that doorway into a place of gloriously larger views of Jesus and God and of Life Itself than many of us have ever been blessed to behold."
—Neale Donald Walsch, author of Conversations with God
"Kriyananda's revelatory book gives us the enlightened, timeless wisdom of Jesus the Christ in a way that addresses the challenges of twenty-first century living."
—Michael Beckwith, Founder and Spiritual Director, Agape International Spiritual Center, author of Inspirations of the Heart
"Revelations of Christ helps us rediscover the original meaning and majesty of the teachings of Jesus Christ, with a clarity and simplicity that transcends theological nitpicking. In a world seemingly intent on sacrificing itself on the altar of religious extremism, this timeless, unifying message is urgently needed."
—Larry Dossey, MD, author of The Extraordinary Healing Power of Ordinary Things
"Reading Revelations of Christ is like having a dialog with our Creator about the meaning of Jesus' life, actions and teaching. The closing sentence of the book says it all: 'The more you tune into his deep message, the more you will know that only one thing matters in life: selfless, divine love, like that of an eternal child for his Heavenly Father, and for his Divine Friend.'"
—Bernie Siegel, MD author of 365 Prescriptions For The Soul
"This is a wonderful book for people who want to understand the similarities between the spiritual teachings of east and west; of Christianity and Hinduism. This book offers Christians a deeper understanding of the teachings of yoga and likewise gives Hindus a more in-depth approach to Christianity. Swami Kriyananda is an inspiring teacher who carries on the tradition of his guru, Paramhansa Yogananda."
—Terry Cole-Whittaker D.D., Founder of Adventures in Enlightenment and author of Dare to be Great.
"Revelations of Christ is simply marvelous. I have asked myself how Swami Kriyananda could write with such simplicity, beauty, and inspiration. The explanation, I feel, is that his great master writes through him. The profundity and lucidity of this book acts like a clear mirror, reflecting the greatness of Christ's teaching as proclaimed by Paramhansa Yogananda."
—Swami Nikhilananda Saraswati, Head of the Chinmaya Mission, New Delhi, India.
"The beauty of this book is that Kriyananda, gives the average person permission to search for themselves, to read this book and begin to know Jesus as He truly is ~ a living, tangible Holy Teacher. A very timely book for the world, and for those seeking to know Jesus personally."
—Reverend Paula T. Webb Founder & President National InterFaith Council, author of Creating Perfect Relationships.
