Found by Love by Rahil Patel
Found by love is the true story of Rahil Patel, a renowned Hindu priest, whose world was changed by an unexpected encounter with Jesus Christ.
Devoted to the Hindu scriptures and committed to his faith’s rituals and practices, Rahil Patel was a model priest. He was a brilliant academic and captivating speaker to audiences of thousands for one of the most affluent Hindu organisations in the world.
Yet for all his success Rahil felt a hunger in his heart for peace. Hoping to find a loving god who could meet these needs he intensified his meditations and his study of the Hindu scriptures. But nothing seemed to work – until he had an unexpected encounter with the risen Lord, Jesus Christ. Finally, he was found by love. It was the beginning of a surprising journey in which he experienced both painful stripping away and inner healing, leading to a freedom and joy he had never known before.
This autobiography takes the reader from Rahil’s earliest days as a child growing up in England, his deep immersion in Hinduism as a young man and his influential work as a priest to how his growing internal doubts finally blossomed into a life-changing revelation of Jesus Christ and all that that meant for his life.
