    Was Jesus influenced by Eastern Religion? One of the great mysteries of the New Testament is what was Jesus doing during the majority of his life that we know nothing about. Leaving aside the story of his birth, the only information we have about the younger years of Jesus comes from the Gospel of Luke who describes an occasion when a precocious twelve-year-old Jesus speaks in the temple, impressing his elders. The Bible is then silent about the following twenty year period of Jesus’ life until he reappears on the scene around the age of thirty when he is baptized by John and begins his ministry. 



 What happened during these missing years of Jesus’ life? What experiences might have shaped Jesus into the man he became? Why do we find so many parallels between the teachings of Hinduism and Buddhism and the teachings of Jesus, who was considered a subversive in his Roman and Jewish community? Why do the contemplative practices of Jesus, which seem to confuse his disciples, seem so similar to Eastern meditative techniques? Could a clue to these missing years come from a controversial discovery over a century ago by a Russian journalist? In my new novel, THE BREATH OF GOD, I example the implications of this journalist’s historical discovery through a fictional story of suspense, mystery, and mysticism.

    Hello all, peace be with you! As a reply to whisperingwinds: I think no matter what one's faith is, "God" is not happy with modern humanity! Just take a look at the rampant materialism that is destroying the gift that is our natural world. Or the violence which threatens our very survival as a species. Human beings must reach back to the common values found in all of our spiritual traditions, or I fear things will get much much worse. But I'm still optimistic about the possibility for positive change.
