Overview

"I left Jesus to search for the Tao when I was sixteen," writes Kenneth Leong. "Now I am forty and realize that I could have found the Tao in Jesus." This is an intriguing book that reveals how Zen philosophy parallels the core message of the gospel.
 

It is the spiritual side of Zen, the art to trust and accept life that coincides with the core of the Gospel message. For power, dogma and doctrine were not Jesus' passion, but the mystery of life and the possibility of love. Sometimes people have overlooked the joy, the humor and the depth of Jesus' teachings—often because they could not surmount the narrow confines of openness to the scripture's power to transform our lives.

...[H]e argues for a recognition that 'Zen is everywhere.' In Leong's approach, it would be appropriate to call Jesus 'an anonymous Zen Buddhist'....The second task...is to give a Zen-style reading of Jesus' life and teachings. —Books & Culture: A Christian Review

    One of the most important books I've ever read.

    As lame as it might sound, this book has honestly changed my life. Kenneth Leong begins the book by saying, 'I left Jesus to search for the Tao when I was sixteen. Now I am forty and realize that I could have found the Tao in Jesus.' Right away I could relate with Kenneth. Every day, more Christians are leaving the faith; they feel unsatisfied with the religion and are hungry for more. I certainly felt this way. I had all the spiritual questions but nobody could provide any answers. All my questions were met with the same reply, 'Don't ask, just believe.' Without even asking, this book had an answer to all my questions. Rather, the Bible has always provided the answers - this book just taught me understanding where I've been looking all along. This book has brought beauty, art, and love back into my spiritual journey. I HIGHLY recommend this book to everyone!

    The Living Teachings of Jesus

    This book is filled with wisdom, beauty and truth...about the living spiritual path Jesus askes us to experience when he beckons us to follow. I love this book and have underlined much of it. I have long had a problem with organized religion because truth can never be set in stone ending up much like an insect captured in amber for all time...dead. The messages of Jesus the Christ or Enlightened One are spiritual messages and a spiritual life is one of never ending discovery and deepening layers of awareness. God...I personally prefer Oneness...is everywhere and everything and we are a part of it...let us all start realizing and living this truth so that we and our world may evolve towards wholeness instead of devolving towards destruction ! Thank you Mr. Leong for a very courageously-lovely and important book. I will return to it again and again!
