Taking part in the largest and most important Latino book competition in the United States, the Spanish-language edition of Paramahansa Yogananda’s The Second Coming of Christ: The Resurrection of the Christ Within You recently won first-place awards for both Best Religious Book (Spanish or bilingual) and Best Spiritual/New Age Book (Spanish or bilingual) at the 14th annual International Latino Book Awards (ILBA), held on June 5 in New York City.
The ILBA awards honor excellence in the world of Spanish-language publishing in a ceremony that takes place each year during BookExpo America, the largest publishing trade show in the United States. These awards are an international event, with authors and publishers participating from across the USA, 14 countries in Latin America, Spain, and other countries throughout the world.
Since 1999, thirteen of Paramahansa Yogananda’s titles have received first-place prizes at the ILBA, with some receiving awards in multiple categories — such as this year with The Second Coming of Christ.
In this first volume of what will become a three-volume edition in Spanish, The Second Coming of Christ takes the reader on a profoundly enriching journey through the four Gospels. Verse by verse, Paramahansa Yogananda illumines the universal path to oneness with God taught by Jesus to his immediate disciples but obscured through centuries of misinterpretation: how to become like Christ, how to resurrect the Eternal Christ within one’s self.
