This chapter is entirely given over to a study of Kumarappa’s views on Christianity. Kumarappa emerged as the most important Indian Christian nationalist involved in the struggle for swaraj. Although a layman, Kumarappa had a sound theological understanding which he deployed to great effect in countering criticism of the nationalist campaigns during the Civil Disobedience period. The chapter also presents Kumarappa’s novel and creative interpretation of the teachings of Jesus in light of Gandhi’s philosophy of Sarvodaya.

Keywords:   Indian Christian freedom fighter, debates with Bishop Westcott and Verrier Elwin, Christian thought and Sarvodaya, Christianity: Its Economy and Way of Life, Practice and Precepts of Jesus, Indian hermeneutics
