This is a bit of a challenge. strong ideas, but must be studied thoroughly for best understanding.

Fascinating book that can be useful for Orthodox Christians in talking to Buddhists, and for Buddhists looking into Orthodoxy.

I had already written a review for this book, but I forgot to mention a very special aspect of this book. In addition to its pristine message from the heart of mystical Christianity, it is graced by Chinese art representing Jesus' life, actions, and interactions with other people.

Beyond this, dispersed throughout the book, are beautiful and primitively profound icons, reprinted beautifully on many different pages. Many Saints and biblical characters (such as Moses and the Virgin Mary) are represented by the icons in this book. Also, the Chinese calligraphy (primitive pictographs, such as might have been used by Lao Tzu himself) adds a particularly unique Far-Eastern flavor that you can only receive from the traditional styles.

If you have ever desired to understand the spiritual and psychological mechanisms that caused the fall of great heroes such as Anakin Skywalker, or the mere existence of evils such as Sauron and Voldemort, and how they actually maintained a large following (these, though fictional, have real-world parallels), then you may begin your journey to discovering these things with this book. More importantly, if you approach it with a contrite, repentant, and sincere heart, you will learn (though not in a purely intellectual manner, though this may be the only way you begin to understand at first) to prevent such folly in your own life, and unite yourself with the Obi-Wan Kanobis, the Gandalfs, and the Dumbledores of spiritual reality. In the end, of course, this means true healing, and living life to the fullest.

Approached in such a sincere manner, this book is a spotless gem: a true complement to the Scripture, on which it is based.

In a time when religions become obsolete, this book offers a possibility to understand that a faith is not equal to a religion.
