The Human Icon. A Comparative Study of Hindu and Orthodox Christian Beliefs by Dr Christine Mangala Frost – a Research Associate of IOCS – is a breakthrough study which will be published on 26 May 2017 by James Clarke.
Despite the history that divides them, Hinduism and Orthodox Christianity have much in common. In The Human Icon, Dr Christine Mangala Frost explores how both religions seek to realise the divine potential of every human being, and the differences in their approach. Dr Frost, who has experienced both the extraordinary riches and the all-too-human failings of Hinduism and Orthodox Christianity from the inside, is perfectly placed to examine the convergences and divergences between the two faiths. Inspired by a desire to clear up the misunderstandings that exist between the two, The Human Icon is a study in how two faiths, superficially dissimilar, can nevertheless find meeting points everywhere.
