“Don’t you think atonement would mean attunement?” said a Hindu to me one day. He felt his life was “like sweet bells jangled out of tune” by sin and evil, and to his mind, craving inward peace and harmony, atonement would bring attunement to the nature of God—music instead of discord. No wonder peace has been the great thought and craving of India. (E. Stanley Jones, The Christ of the Indian Road , pp.195-96) Wikipedia page: Jones.
