Rev. John R. Mabry MA
From the editor: What can Christians learn from other religions? A great deal, says the Reverend John Mabry. He believes there are immense insights to be gained if we approach other faith traditions with a humble spirit and a willingness to listen.
Through his own brilliant and lucid translation, he shows how the Tao Te Ching not only closely parallels Jesus' teachings, but actually illuminates core elements of the Christian faith that we often overlook or ignore. Moreover, this ancient Chinese classic hauntingly echoes the Christian Gospel throughout, expressing truths we are supposed to know but often do not. In showing us how the world perceives its Creator it reveals the Gospel as more compassionate, relevant and universal than we ever imagined.
As Matthew Fox enthusiastically says, God As Nature Sees God is "a welcome contribution to the important field of deep ecumen-ism, wherein Western mysticism and Eastern mysticism at last come together with a vision that can awaken us all."
The Reverend John R. Mabry is a priest, chaplain, artist and poet, and a doctoral student in philosophy and religion. He serves as managing editor of Creation Spirituality magazine, which promotes understanding and solidarity between peoples of diverse faith traditions.
