Book Launch - GOSPEL STORIES as you never heard before
By A Raj
Mumbai, Mar. 4. The new book entitled ``GOSPEL STORIES as you never heard before``  by Father Maria Arokiam Kanaga SDB was launched by Father Francesco Cereda, Vicar General of the Salesian Congregation  during the Team Visit 2017 at Chennai, India.  Gospel Stories as you never heard before is an inspirational story telling of Master Story Teller, Jesus.

Jesus hardly ever preached a sermon. The so-called Sermon on the Mount is the Gospel writer`s collection of his various teachings, presented as the new law, given by the new Moses on a new mountain. When Jesus narrated stories, he rarely explained them. A story is something that speaks for itself. All one needs is the willingness to listen. That is why he often concluded his story saying: ``Let him who has ears, hear.``

This book is an attempt to narrate the Gospel stories in an imaginative and narrative format. The use of imagination is only a literary devise of contemplation and intends to bring home the central message of the original story itself.

The Revised and Enlarged Second edition, previously published as `From the Gospels, at a tangent` has 10 more stories with high quality printing with well chosen pictures for each story.  

Father Maria ArokiamKanaga, currently the Salesian Regional Superior of South Asia is a versatile and prolific writer. He has authored four books including his doctoral thesis on Vivenkananda published by Inkdia. He is widely lauded for his original and creative thinking.

Father Joshtrom, the University Professor from Rome, commenting on the book says that ``There is a twist in every little story, which makes it interesting to read. The story form itself does not interfere with the original message of the Gospel. This is a fresh way of attracting people to listen to the Gospel more attentively.``

The books was released by Father Francesco Ceredo, the Vicar General of the Salesians of Don Bosco, in the presence of six General Councillors of the congregations and the entire Provincial Councillors of South Asia on the first day of the team visit in Chennai.

The book is a unique and collaborative venture by three publishing houses, alaihal MEDIA Books, Tiruchy along with Tej-Prasarini, Mumbai and Don Bosco Publications, Chennai of BOSCOM, South Asia.

The book lives up to its title `as you never heard before`.
