The true story of a successful Hindu priest whose world was changed by an unexpected encounter with the love of Jesus Christ.
Devoted to the Hindu scriptures and committed to his faith’s rituals and practices, Rahil Patel was a model priest. As a brilliant academic and captivating speaker, he travelled internationally for one of the most influential Hindu organisations in the world, promoting Hindu thought in political, social and economic spheres. Sincere and eloquent, his spiritual counsel was received by politicians, industrialists and celebrities.
Yet for all this, Rahil felt a hunger in his heart for peace. Hoping to find a loving God, he intensified his meditations and study of the Hindu scriptures, but nothing seemed to work – until he unexpectedly encountered the risen Jesus Christ. Finally he had been found by the love he was so looing for! So began an extraordinary journey of painful stripping away and profound inner healing that would lead to a joyous freedom he had never known possible.
‘Rahil’s story of transformation is a wonderful testimony to the grace of God working in a person’s life’. – Nicky Gumbel, Vicar of Holy Trinity Brompton
