Overview

This book provides a rigorous investigation of the comparisons often drawn between the Krsnavatara (Krsna in his avatara state) doctrines of Sankara and Ramanaja and the incarnation of Christ as represented by classical Christian orthodoxy.

Is the Christian doctrine of Christ's incarnation similar to a Hindu doctrine of Krsnavatara? Steven Tsoukalas maintains that the perceived similarities are actually superficial. He argues that more careful consideration of epistemologies and ontologies should be undertaken when comparing theologies and soteriologies pertinent to avatara and incarnation.

Praise for the Print Edition

A penetrating exploration of crucial differences between Christianity’s incarnation of Christ and certain Hindu traditions' doctrines of Krishna-avatar.
