Jesus and Lao Tzu free pdf The Porallel Sayings- No matter how different the world's religions appear, at their core are universal messages that transcend time, culture and faith. This book reveals the parallel sayings of two orthe world's greatest spititual teachers-Jesus and LaoTzu (the father of taoism and author of The Tao Te Ching). Side by side, page after page the parallels are presented with minimal clarifying explanation so readers can witness the striking similaries between the teachings and meditate on their shared message. In series that began with Jesus and Buddha: The Parallel Sayings- Offers the first comprehensive collection of parallel sayings from Jesus and Lao Tzu ever compiled- Offers evidence of a universally shared spirituality -- a hot trend in modern religion- Written and formatted in an enlightening, straightforward fashion for lay readers, not academics- Jesus and Lao Tzu briefly explores the origins of these amazing parallels. it looks at the lives of the two great teachers and the traditions that they belonged to as well as the religions they creared. Westerners unfamiliar with The Tao Te Ching are provided with a short, clear explanation of its signiticance and place in the culture of the East. However the core of-the book is the parallels. Many passages exhibit remarkably similar sentiments and language, often using the same metaphors. They are then divided into a number of sections, each beginning with a brief look at the religious and historical importance of that particular set of parallels: Humility, love and Forgiveness, Materialism and Wealth, innocence and Simpiicity, as well as Hypocrisy and Violence. Like the teachings it voices, the book is both simple and profound.
