No longer formerly has the traditional knowledge of Lao Tzu been awarded along the otherworldly revelation of Jesus Christ in a manner that encompasses the complete value of either. Christ the everlasting Tao offers the Tao Teh Ching as a foreshadowing of what will be published by means of 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Through heretofore unpublished translations and teachings of Gi-ming Shien -- maybe the best chinese language thinker to have ever come to the West -- this publication uncovers the esoteric center of the Tao Teh Ching. Then, in the course of the transmission of mystics of the traditional Christian East, Lao Tzu's educating is introduced right into a new size, exploding with new meanings. Christ, in flip, is visible in a different gentle, His natural picture shining within the readability of Lao Tzu's intuitive imaginative and prescient.
With its sensible, time-tested suggestion on the right way to unite oneself with the incarnate Tao and procure uncreated Teh, this is often either a philosophical source-book and a non secular guide, touching the center and best one to profound inward transformation. it's a long-awaited resolution to people who, having became clear of glossy Western "churchianity," are interested in the freshness, directness and straightforwardness of Lao Tzu, and even as are unusually, inexplicably drawn again to the all-compelling fact of Jesus Christ.
The ebook is decorated with chinese language calligraphy and seals (created in particular for it through recognized chinese language artists), and with conventional chinese language work of the lifetime of Christ.
