John Kunnathu has authored several inspirational books in English and Malayalam. They are in the form of essays, stories, dialogs, and poems. Here he explains the general context of his recent books.
    Gregorian Vision

The thought-world of Paulos Mar Gregorios spans an unusually broad spectrum of topics from Christian theology to Quantum physics, from Marxian economic analysis to the Buddhist logic of Nagarjuna. John Kunnathu invites the readers to make an exciting adventure with him to explore this thought-world. This book serves as a window through which one can have a glimpse of the landscape of Gregorian thought. Each chapter addresses a puzzle about human existence. If a young person asked these questions to Mar Gregorios, how would he answer? That is the perspective from which each chapter of this book is written.

With a willingness to understand each other, they see how a huge wall that separates their two civilizations collapses.This book is a call for a multicultural and pluralistic world. We don’t want the people of any one religion to dominate others. We want the people of diverse religions living together learning from each other.
