Now not formerly has the traditional knowledge of Lao Tzu been awarded along the otherworldly revelation of Jesus Christ in a manner that encompasses the whole value of either. Christ the everlasting Tao provides the Tao Teh Ching as a foreshadowing of what will be published by way of Christ, and Lao Tzu himself as a Far-Eastern prophet of Christ the incarnate God.
Through heretofore unpublished translations and teachings of Gi-ming Shien -- maybe the best chinese language thinker to have ever come to the West -- this ebook uncovers the esoteric middle of the Tao Teh Ching. Then, in the course of the transmission of mystics of the traditional Christian East, Lao Tzu's instructing is introduced right into a new size, exploding with new meanings. Christ, in flip, is visible in a special gentle, His natural photograph shining within the readability of Lao Tzu's intuitive imaginative and prescient.
With its sensible, time-tested suggestion on how you can unite oneself with the incarnate Tao and procure uncreated Teh, this can be either a philosophical source-book and a non secular guide, touching the guts and major one to profound inward transformation. it's a long-awaited solution to those that, having grew to become clear of sleek Western "churchianity," are attracted to the freshness, directness and ease of Lao Tzu, and even as are unusually, inexplicably drawn again to the all-compelling truth of Jesus Christ.
The publication is decorated with chinese language calligraphy and seals (created specifically for it by means of recognized chinese language artists), and with conventional chinese language work of the lifetime of Christ.

He enlarged the section on Chronicles, using this as a basis for a new theory of the history of Israelite religion, and he postponed to a second volume his treatment of the fragments that made up the Pentateuch. By advising de Wette thus, Griesbach played a vital role in the production of an epoch-making work of scholarship; for of the two volumes of the Beitrdge, the first is by far the more significant. However, I propose to deal with the second volume before dealing with the first, because, as stated above, it represents the bulk of what de Wette wrote in the first half of 1805, and is closely connected with the Auffoderung.
1 Soon after the award of his doctorate in March 1805, de Wette married Eberhardine Boye, the daughter of the Stadtdirektor in Bayreuth. She was five years older than de Wette, and she was living in Jena with her elder sister, who was married to a distinguished physicist, Thomas Johann Seebeck (1770-1831). 3 In 1811 the Seebecks moved back from Jena to Bayreuth, and lived for some months in the same house as the poet and writer Jean Paul Richter. The link between the Boyes/Seebecks and Jean Paul opens up an intriguing possibility.

Jena 1799-1807 55 The conclusions of Volume II of the Beitrdge echo what we have heard in the Auffoderung :the value of the Pentateuch lies not in its witness to history but in its witness to religion. 1 Thus, as already emphasized, it is not a hard rationalism that is at the heart of de Wette's attempt to show that hardly anything in the Pentateuch is authentic at the level of history.
