Human Wisdom to Understand Biblical Wisdom

Human Wisdom to Understand Biblical Wisdom

Understanding Biblical wisdom requires human wisdom. Reading the Bible may not lead you anywhere unless you have an open mind, or the "reverse" mindset of Lao Tzu, the author of Tao Te Ching, the ancient immortal classic from China

Interestingly enough, both 
Tao Te Ching and the Bible are among the most translated and extensively read books in world literature. 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 birth of Jesus Christ. Because both books are about wisdom and true wisdom is universal and timeless, often sharing some common attributes, there are similarities in the Biblical truths expressed in the Bible and the profound and eternal truths of human wisdom in Tao Te Ching.

Wisdom is the essence in the art of living well, especially in your senior years. Wisdom is not the same as knowledge. Therefore, acquisition of knowledge and information does not necessarily bring wisdom. 

TAO The Way to Biblical Wisdom: Get the ancient Chinese wisdom from the ancient sage Lao Tzu, the author of the immortal classic on human wisdom Tao Te Ching. The book explains what human wisdom is and how to get it. It also includes all the 81 chapters of Tao Te Ching with Biblical references. The book concludes with interconnection between human wisdom and Biblical wisdom. 

TAO The Way to Biblical Wisdom contains the complete 81 short chapters of Tao Te Ching, the essentials of Lao Tzu's wisdom to help readers understand not only the text but also the wisdom of God. Given that Tao Te Ching is a difficult book with its multiple paradoxes and deliberate perplexities, I have also provided everyday examples to illustrate their relevance to contemporary living and the wisdom of the Bible.
