Reviews of Saving the Savior
- Saving the Savior: Did Christ
Survive the Crucifixion? presents the explosive theory that
Jesus Christ survived the crucifixion, traveled across what was
then known as Asia, took up residence in Kashmir, India, married,
had children and lived to the ripe old age of 120 years. Thirty
illustrations include original-language documents (Sanskrit,
Tibetan, Persian)--with accompanying English translations--that
clearly record the sojourn of Jesus Christ all throughout
- Saving the Savior studies five
branches of humanity that are involved in an intense struggle over
the identity of Jesus Christ, and compares their perspectives.
Those branches are: revisionist Christian scholars, traditional
Christianity, Eastern religions and philosophies, the world of
Islam, and atheists, agnostics and secular humanists.
- Saving the Savior also examines the
philosophical issues surrounding the subject of a post-crucifixion
life of Jesus. It offers an intense and fascinating comparison
between Eastern religion and philosophy on the one hand, and
Western Christianity on the other. This thorough examination is
perhaps as engaging, if not more so, as the actual documents that
detail the travels of Jesus to Kashmir after the crucifixion.
- From the
- For 2000 years, billions of human
beings have believed that Jesus Christ died on the cross and
physically rose from the dead. And at least two billion human
beings are currently waiting anxiously for Jesus to return.
Christians are waiting for him to return to establish the Kingdom
of God. Muslims are waiting for him to return physically with
someone called "Imam Mahdi" to force the rule of Islam globally.
- In Europe and the United States, a
new restlessness is almost palpable, especially a new restlessness
is almost palpable, especially amongst the youth. The pews have
all but emptied in Europe, while the New Age and other movements
are challenging Christianity in America. The promise of paradise
on earth in the Kingdom of God no longer seems to attract American
- In the Islamic world, formal
meetings occur all over the globe. And the subject of these
meetings is: "Where is Isa [Jesus]? Where is Imam Mahdi?"
The youth are looking for new answers, sometimes towards the West.
The Imams are worried: "How do we hold our youth?" They continue
to promise the arrival of Imam Mahdi and Jesus, "soon."
- We are now in the third millennium
of Christianity and the 15th century of Islam. Jesus has not
returned. Why not? The answer appears to be a simple one: He is
dead--in this earth.
- Saving the Savior: Did Christ
Survive the Crucifixion? brings to light astonishing bits of
powerful evidence detailing a long post-crucifixion life of Jesus
Christ. Had Mr. Salahuddin lived in Europe during the Middle Ages,
he would have been sent to the rack--no doubt about it.
- Though it is not likely that
humanity will return to the rule of dictatorial priesthood, Jammu
Press urges you to take advantage of today's freedoms by
purchasing a copy of this explosive and important book. Saving the
Savior cannot be dismissed as "speculative." It's all documented.
- From the
- "Those who seek should not stop
seeking until they find. When they find, they will be disturbed.
When they are disturbed, they will marvel, and will reign over
all. And after they have reigned they will rest."
- Those are the words of Jesus
Christ. When you read Saving the Savior, you may become disturbed.
But then you will marvel. And what will you marvel about?
- "After all, there is nothing hidden
that will not be revealed, and there is nothing covered up that
will remain undisclosed." (Jesus Christ)
- You will marvel at the fact that
despite 2000 years of cover-up by a tenacious (and sometimes
vicious) Church, in your own hands you will have a book that
clearly demonstrates what Jesus said: "...there is nothing covered
up that will remain undisclosed."
- And then you will "reign over all."
Why? Because you will have knowledge and truth. But not a worldly
"reign." Your reign will be the reign of a giving teacher to your
eager students. And after your reign, you will rest--rest in the
contentment that you have helped to liberate the mind and the soul
by spreading truth.
- About the
- Abubakr Ben Ishmael Salahuddin,
author of Saving the Savior, is a student of comparative religious
studies and a passionate explorer in the realm of religion and
spirituality. He was raised as a staunch Roman Catholic for twelve
years of his life. Though a deep lover of his Roman Catholic
religion (attending 10:00 a.m. mass every day for twelve years),
he could not resolve in his mind and soul what he felt to be a
deep injustice: that the prayers of Jesus Christ in the Garden of
Gethsemane, as recorded in the Bible, had been rejected by God,
and that God had decided that Jesus Christ must be crucified and
killed on the cross despite those passionate prayers that he be
saved from such an awful death.
- Each Easter season, on Good Friday,
he would cry silently in his room as he thought about this deep
injustice. He realized, as he stated openly to the Roman Catholic
nun in his seventh grade classroom, that "something is missing."
Remaining thoroughly loyal to his religion, he nevertheless made a
verbal commitment in public that, "I am going to find what is
missing. Something is wrong."
- After graduating from high school,
he became actively involved in the social revolution of the 1960s
in America. But during this time he never forgot his commitment,
and continued exploring, reading and researching.
- While attending the University of
Illinois at Chicago, he became exposed to the religion of Islam,
and accepted that religion in the year 1975. But he continued his
committment to find the truth about Jesus.
- Over a period of time (which
included some rather mysterious circumstances) he came to be aware
of the theory that Jesus Christ may have survived the crucifixion.
Delving deep into the subject, and also praying and meditating
over the matter, he slowly and meticulously gathered information
on the subject, culminating, on December 10, 1999, in the
introduction to the Internet of his now popular, Tomb of Jesus
Christ Website. A few months after the creation of the Tomb of
Jesus Christ Website, he met Dr. Fida Hassnain. Dr. Hassnain is
the former Director of Archives, Archaeology, Research and Museums
for the state of Kashmir, and lives in the city of Srinagar, the
capital of Kashmir, and the city which houses the tomb of Jesus
Christ (called, the Roza Bal). Dr. Hassnain graciously and
enthusiastically agreed to work with Mr. Salahuddin on collecting
ancient documents that mention the sojourn of Jesus Christ in
India/Asia after the crucifixion.
