This book is O.K. but is not a great. I read the Tao Te Ching and noticed the parallel's between Lao Tzu and the teachings of Jesus but reading them in this book, they didn't seem very "inspiring" for lack of a better word. I wouldn't but this book again.

This book was profound in everyway, yet simple enough for anyone to read and learn from. I applaud the author for pointing out the incredible parallels between two great men and religious tradidtions.

A wonderful book of parallel sayings by two of the greatest philosophers to ever live. A must have for people of all religions. It brought me great peace.
