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 Asia/India.
 
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 Publisher
 
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 youth.
 
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 Author
 
"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 Author
 
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.
