Eli Stanley Jones was born in Baltimore, Maryland, USA. He was an American methodist christian missionary, theologian and writer. He is remembered chiefly for his interreligious lectures to the educated classes in India, thousands of which were held across the Indian subcontinent during the first decades of the 20th century. He spent much time with Mohandas K. Gandhi, and the Nehru family. Gandhi challenged Jones and, through Jones' writing, the thousands of Western missionaries working there during the last decades of the British Raj, to include greater respect for the mindset and strengths of the Indian character in their work. He is also the founder of the Christian Ashram movement. He was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize for his reconciliation work in Asia, Africa, and between Japan and the United States. His first book, Christ of the Indian Road, published in 1925. He studied law at City College before graduating from Asbury College, Wilmore, Kentucky in 1906.
