Jesus and Lao Tzu

The Parallel Sayings

Edited by Martin Aronson / Introduction by Brother David Steindl-Rast

Comparing the New Testament with the Tao Te Ching, Taoism’s most sacred book, Jesus and Lao Tzu reveals a surprising set of examples in which these two spiritual masters point their followers in the same direction. With over 90 parallel sayings, readers find fresh understanding and new perspectives here, since the time-honored teachings are presented side by side. The book also shows how these shared truths transcend traditional religious boundaries.
