Interfaith Council member Doug Krotz from the Baha’i Community in Orinda has written a book entitled: “The Man Who Sent the Magi: A Religious Rosetta Stone.”
In this holiday season, Doug is offering his book for a suggested donation of $25 or more to the Interfaith Council.
Doug describes this as “a book to assist in the expansion of your religious and spiritual thinking… and then understanding.” How much of your religious training came between the ages of eight to fifteen? How certain of those beliefs are you today? The Man Who Sent the Magi refers to the ancient Persian prophet Zoroaster, referred to in the book by His given name Zarathustra, whose prophesies were responsible for the journey of the Magi, three high priests and possibly kings who journeyed over a thousand miles to gift, worship and honor the birth of infant, Jesus.
Check out the link below for more information about the book, or to invite Douglas to come to your community to speak about it. http://www.drkworks.com. To donate to the Interfaith Council follow this link, or mail or deliver your check (please arrange a time to pick it up by emailing Jessica Natal at firstname.lastname@example.org). Please add around $5 if you can’t pick up the book at the office and would like it mailed.
We appreciated Doug’s generosity and you will love this exploration of the history of Persia and Zarathutra.
This is a thought-provoking work worthy of your time. —-Christopher Nauer, Pastoral Associate at St. Perpetua Catholic Church, Lafayette, CA
This is one man s journey beyond the crossroads where Matthew s birth narrative and the three Persian visitors meet. It is a journey that leads the reader into a lost story that seems strangely familiar. —-Rev. Dan Senter, ELCA Pastor of Our Saviour s Lutheran Church, Lafayette, CA
