Product description


"Albert LaChance brings to The Way of Christ the intellect of a scholar and the intuition of a mystic. Most importantly, his enlightened perspective presents Jesus as a universal teacher of all peoples and all cultures, ushering in what he himself calls 'Third Millennium Christianity.' This book is a must read."
--Craig Bullock, Director, The Assisi Institute, Rochester, New York

"There may be some who think that Dr. LaChance has misunderstood Christianity. Rather, in a brilliant and truly inspired manner, he leads the reader, gently but surely, to the essential spirituality of this great Asian religion. Dr. LaChance helps us see how Jesus, much like the great Indian yogi Sri Aurobindo, heals the division between heaven and earth, the ultimate source of all our suffering. As we read, we come to understand with our hearts what Jesus meant when he told us that we are the 'light of the world, ' and that it is our purpose, in every moment of our life, to shine that light-to marry heaven and earth, Spirit and Matter. In these tumultuous times, this spiritual marriage is what is most needed to bring peace and justice to our world. Read Dr. LaChance's book and open your heart to this inspired vision of twenty-first century Christianity."
--Don Salmon, PhD, coauthor of Yoga Psychology and the Transformation of
Consciousness: Seeing Through the Eyes of Infinity

"I have been a practicing Hindu for over thirty years. I have been a Christian my entire life. Growing up in Georgia as the son of a Southern Baptist deacon, I never imagined that I would one day follow an ancient 'heathen' religion. If I had been able to read Dr. LaChance's brilliant exegesis of my beloved Gospel of John, I would have immediately seen the essential underlying oneness of the Vedic and Christian traditions. As it was, I discovered this through my own years of study, meditations, and experiences. In my evolving spiritual life, I never for a moment let go of my relationship with Jesus. In fact, my heart has always known that I was following the path of Jesus as I went deeper into the philosophical teachings and practices of Gaudiya Vaishnava Hinduism.

"Albert LaChance's profound understanding and clear explanation of the teachings of Jesus via St. John are appearing at a most opportune time in the history of the world. For the first time, ordinary people around the globe have access to the full Wisdom Teachings of the world faiths. In his teachings and writing, Albert cuts through the superficial differences of these traditions while illuminating the significant differences. His searing and passionate words look, smell, and taste of truth--especially his explanation of the simultaneous oneness of the soul/world with God, and yet the distinct and celebratory differences of humankind from God resonate with the integrated realizations of the great Vedic acaryas: Sankara, Ramanuja, Madhava, Vallabacarya, and Chaitanya. Albert's unveiling of John's gospel reveals the logos of God who descends as Avatar to show the way of love that is at the heart of the teachings of Lord Jesus and Lord Krishna. And I thank him from the depths of my being."
--J. Phillip Jones, MA, LMHC, author of Light on Death: The Spiritual Art of Dying

"Before I was exposed to Dr. LaChance's profound understanding of the mission and message of Yeshua (Jesus), I had little interest in and even less affection for Christianity. Instead, I oriented my life around what was, for me, the much more accessible and infinitely more practical renaissance of Vedic Science presented by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. Since discovering how Dr. LaChance's unitive vision has rescued the teaching of the Divine man, Yeshua, from the ravages of time and cultural distortion, I have found a new yearning in my heart to grow closer to the wholesome beauty and wisdom of the One who is indeed the Son of God."
--Allen Penrod, MA, Maharishi University of Management, Fairfield, Iowa

"Dr. LaChance is a rare voice of lucidity within the emerging consciousness of third-millennium Christian mysticism. When viewed through an Eastern lens, traditional Christian doctrine yields forth a living, breathing vision of radical transformation that is as close to what we know of Yeshua's first century Judean Aramaic as anything I have ever encountered."
--Dale Allen Hoffman, director of The Aramaic Healing Circle
