About this title


Not until now has the ancient wisdom of Lao Tzu been presented alongside the otherworldly revelation of Jesus Christ in a way that encompasses the full significance of both. Christ the Eternal Tao presents the Tao Teh Ching as a foreshadowing of what would be revealed by Christ, and Lao Tzu himself as a Far-Eastern prophet of Christ the incarnate God.

Through heretofore unpublished translations and teachings of Gi-ming Shien -- perhaps the greatest Chinese philosopher to have ever come to the West -- this book uncovers the esoteric core of the Tao Teh Ching. Then, through the transmission of mystics of the ancient Christian East, Lao Tzu's teaching is brought into a new dimension, exploding with new meanings. Christ, in turn, is seen in a unique light, His pure image shining in the clarity of Lao Tzu's intuitive vision.

With its practical, time-tested advice on how to unite oneself with the incarnate Tao and acquire uncreated Teh, this is both a philosophical source-book and a spiritual manual, touching the heart and leading one to profound inward transformation. It is a long-awaited Answer to those who, having turned away from modern Western "churchianity," are drawn to the freshness, directness and simplicity of Lao Tzu, and at the same time are strangely, inexplicably drawn back to the all-compelling reality of Jesus Christ.

The book is adorned with Chinese calligraphy and seals (created especially for it by well-known Chinese artists), and with traditional Chinese paintings of the life of Christ.

From the Author:

Since my youth I have been stirred by the beauty, simplicity and unfathomable profundity of the Tao Teh Ching. I used to wonder: How would it be if Christ were viewed through the innocent eyes of Lao Tzu? Why can't there be a "Gospel according to Lao Tzu," or, to put it another way, a "New Testament of the Tao Teh Ching"?

I began this book while on a trip to Russia in 1994, and continued working on it in the United States for the next four years. As the work progressed, and as I looked around at today's spiritual climate, I felt the need to write a book that would do more than enable people to add more data to their mental archives of comparative religion. I felt the book had to be able to bring the reader all the way into an actual experience of Christ the eternal Tao -- a book that could initiate inward, personal transformation.

Since its publication (and even before that, when portions of it were circulated around the country), the book has indeed transformed people's lives in marvelous ways. After reading it, some have taken a totally different direction in life: a direction, I believe, that accords with the Way (Tao) of Lao Tzu. Of course, I attribute this to the Power (Teh) of Christ the eternal Tao Himself, which works in human souls through His own words and through those of His Far-Eastern prophet, Lao Tzu.
