    1. Never heard of these teachings until I picked up this book. The story of how these Luminous teachings reached China is interesting; however, the books own conclusions are not supported by its presentation of the details. The authors claim the Christian teachings became infused with Buddhist teachings during the journey to China; but they do not know this. The only evidence they have is the "monument stele" and the fragments of the so-called Jesus sutras found in a cave some time after the events [...]

    2. I really enjoyed reading this book. It was very Zen and very along the lines of the Tao Te Ching in that it gives you things to incorporate into your daily living that's about finding your spiritual center. I'd recommend it to anyone who has been searching or is on their spiritual journey. I enjoyed it!

    3. such clear words - I could follow immediately and my soul cried in joy. I really liked the parables they reminded me of the Upanishads. And also found the background story of these sutras really interesting.
