Has anyone read this book?

I was thinking about getting it, and I was just wondering if it's any good, or if there's a similar book that's better than this one. Thanks! :-)

  • No I haven't- but I did like Living Buddha, Living Christ by Thich Nhat Hahn a whole lot. I think I will add this one to my Christmas list!

  • Nope, but it sounds like a good read. I like this comment made on that page by one of the reviewers, i have to share;

    "I believe Jesus's love is much more expansive than that, much broader. And that his desire, seen through his life, death, and ressurrection, reaching out to us, is reaching out to perhaps the one billion Chinese who may never hear the name of Jesus in their whole existence. And does that mean, because they haven't accepted Jesus, they're going to hell? No, not at all.

    But many Christians are still caught in the Old Testament tribal struggles of us vs. them and put down other faiths without ever even looking"

    I enjoyed reading that perspective....

  • That title reminds me of that movie "The Man from Earth".. I would love to read a review though when you are done reading it.

    Thanks, I hope so too, but I may just pick it up sometime anyway. It sounds like it would be a good read. I just wondered if there was a similar book that was better.

    Me too! I've been to this site (in the link below) many times, that's what made me think to look for a book with other parallel sayings. I think it would be really interesting to read, and sounds very positive in general.
