A collection of anecdotes, parables, and meditations from one of the most fascinating spiritual guides of the 20th century. Rooted in a distinctively Indian idiom, his Christian wisdom challenges Western readers to step beyond theological ideas and encounter the essence of the Gospels.
Known in his lifetime as India’s most famous convert to Christianity, Sadhu Sundar Singh (1889–1929) would not approve of that characterization. He loved Jesus and devoted his life to knowing him and following him, but he never accepted Christianity’s cultural conventions, even as he embraced its stark original teachings.
A modern Saint Francis, Sundar Singh left the wealth of his home at sixteen to live as a sadhu, or wandering holy man. His beggar-like existence, his intense devotion, his mystical encounters with Jesus, and his simple yet profound parables became the stuff of legends. No one who met him – including the thousands who flocked to hear him during his visits to Europe, the Orient, and the United States – remained unaffected.
Wisdom of the Sadhu, a collection of anecdotes, sayings, parables, and meditations, brings together the best of Sundar Singh’s teachings. Couched as they are in a distinctly Indian idiom, they probe the essence of the Gospels with unusual freshness and offer insights of great depth and value to every serious seeker.

His successor, Sadhu Sundar Selvaraj, prophesied last April 2013 that earthquakes will occur in the Philippines and that strong typhoon will hit Leyte and Samar. He also stated that people might kill each other for food, it will be talked to all over the world, many people will drown and die. After 6 months, earthquake struck Cebu and Bohol. And after a month, strong typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan) also struck Leyte and Samar. Filipinos are terrified for there is another prophecy that is feared to be fulfilled and that is the prophecy in Pangasinan. He said that a disease will spread all over the world and it will start in our land. This disease will be felt to the bones. It will turn human skin into black and it will rot. People will be afraid to bury you and this disease will start in the Philippines. I am humbly asking for prayers so that this prophecy will not be fulfilled. Satan has plans for the Philippines.. Our nation shall be saved :( Stop the wicked habits now Filipinos if you want to be saved. We need to keep our faith high! There is God, have faith. :)
We are just finishing our book group using the "Wisdom of the Sadhu, Teachings of Sundar Singh". The discussions have been amazing! This is a MUST READ book for all of those folks who are exploring their faith. We keep adding weeks to the discussions because we have been so excited about the comments in the book. Our books are marked and underlined...you couldn't resell these on Ebay!
Sadhu's transformation began when he saw Jesus. Men led by the spirit are like wind. The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear its sound, but you do not know where it comes from or where it goes. So it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit." John 3:8 Jesus is still called unconventional / not the Messiah by the Jews His follower the sadhu is also not fully accepted by the present day church.

Thank you so much for publishing this wonderful book of the life and teachings of the Sadhu, Sundar Singh, devout and faithful follower of the LORD JESUS CHRIST. Years ago a Pastor gave me an old book about the Sadhu but it was written in Italian so I was so glad to find something in English. After reading this book I went ahead and orderd more copies to share with my friends in Canada and United States!
I like your books very much. And I have translated your book "The Wisdom of Sadhu" edited by Kim Komer in Russian. There are many people who interested in such clear biblical books. God bless all of you for such a noble work for the Kingdom of Christ!
