This is one of those books you pick up from the darkest corner of the book shop because you just felt like it. I have no idea who the author is or what his specialty is but he seems to be quite convinced about Jesus and India. Whether or not he ties the two contexts together with enough research and authenticity is matter that needs to be left to the warring groups. As for us bookworms who now and then buy off-beat books for their wierdo-books shelf, I would say the writing is engaging and does not bore you. Has some pictures but not a whole lot or of good quality (no good quality cameras back then?) Verdict: total time pass material, could have been a few bucks cheaper.
