Understanding Biblical Wisdom Better

TAO: The Way to Biblical Wisdom

Understanding Biblical wisdom may not be as easy as you think: it requires wisdom --  human wisdom to seek knowledge to understand the role of man in this world, such as finding out his self-worth, and his contributions to humanity. Reading the Bible may not lead you anywhere unless you have an open mind, Reading Lao Tzu's Tao Te Ching, the ancient immortal classic from China, may be the way to understanding Biblical wisdom.

Interestingly enough, both Tao Te Ching and the Bible are among the most translated and extensively read books in the world. There is a fundamental connection between the two books, though some critics may disagree. Tao Te Ching is about human wisdom, and the Bible is about the wisdom of God. The former was written hundreds of years before the New Testament was even conceived. Both books are about wisdom, and true wisdom is universal and timeless, often sharing some common attributes. 

TAO The Way to Biblical Wisdom contains the complete translation of Tao Te Ching in simple English (the original text has only 5,000 words), as well as the essentials of Tao wisdom (which is the profound wisdom of Lao Tzu,  the author of Tao Te Ching). This book also explains the subtle connection between human and Biblical wisdom. 

Even Michael Crichton, the best-selling author and acclaimed film-producer, said in interview with Amazon that if he were stranded on an island the only book he would take with him would be Tao Te Ching. If you have not read Tao Te Ching, it is time you do so.
