OCHS alumnus awarded

In January, Exploring the Bhagavad gita: Philosophy, Structure and Meaning a new book by OCHS alumnus, Dr Ithamar Theodor, was named a Choice Outstanding Academic Title for 2011.

Every year in their January issue, Choice a magazine representing the 35,000 libraries who are part of the American Academic Libraries Association, publishes a list of Outstanding Academic Titles that they reviewed during the previous year.

‘Theodor writes with a fine mind and a great heart, both of which are essential for delving into this ancient work’s profound teachings,’ Choice magazine commented in its review.

Theodor’s book presents the full text of the Bhagavad Gita in a new translation, divided into sections, and accompanied by in-depth commentary. It aims to make the Gita accessible and understandable to a wide variety of modern readers.
