When the wisdom of Jesus meets the wisdom of Lao Tzu,
We discover that the Word and the Tao are one and the same...

What can Christians learn from other religions? A great deal, says John Mabry. He believes there are immense insights to be gained if we approach other faith traditions with a humble spirit and a willingness to listen.

Through his own lucid translation, he shows how the Tao Te Ching not only closely parallels Jesus’ teachings, but actually illuminates core elements of the Christian faith that we often overlook or ignore. Moreover, this ancient Chinese classic hauntingly echoes the Christian Gospel throughout, expressing truths we are supposed to know but often do not. In showing us how the world perceives its Creator it reveals the gospel as more compassionate, relevant, and universal than we ever imagined.
