Stephen Mitchell's many books include the bestselling Tao Te Ching, Gilgamesh, and The Second Book of the Tao, as well as The Selected Poetry of Rainer Maria Rilke, The Gospel According to Jesus, Bhagavad Gita, The Book of Job, and Meetings with the Archangel.From Library Journal:
Following the example of Thomas Jefferson's The Jefferson Bible and modern humanistic scholarship, Mitchell ( Parables and Portraits , HarperCollins, 1990) here examines Jesus as a person. He retains only the passages concerning moral instruction, and therefore considers only Jesus' teachings of unconditional love and forgiveness to be authentic and essential. Mitchell draws parallels from these teachings to modern-day, ancient Hindu, Buddhist, Sufi, and Jewish traditions. His guide is recommended as a good source for studying the religious beliefs of our founding fathers.
