Jesus and Lao Tzu: The Parallel Sayingsby Martin Aronson, 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.

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.
