Dao De Jing is an ancient wisdom book, purportedly written by Laozi, who flourished in the sixth century BCE according to the Chinese tradition. It is comprised of eighty-one short poems of which the source is diverse, ranging from personal life to communal and political life. It uses abundant metaphors taken from nature such as water, dust, river, wood, and valley. Laozi reminds his readers to rethink their worldview and purpose of life. Parables of Jesus also are stories about life, ranging from personal identity to social justice. Laozi and Jesus lived in different places at different times. Yet they share a passion and vision to make a better world, full of mercy, justice, and peace. Laozi asks his audience to appreciate the power of smallness in their perspectives. Likewise, in the Mustard Seed, Jesus also helps his audience to see the potential of a small seed that may grow miraculously to several feet tall. This book reads Jesus' parables from the perspective of the Dao De Jing. There is a new translation of the Dao De Jing in the Appendix.

""In this deceptively slim volume, Kim explores powerful ancient wisdom in the teachings of both Laozi and Jesus. Drawn from natural metaphors about many aspects of life, Kim reveals their abiding common themes such as humility, the value of lowliness and smallness, or maintaining a balanced perspective on life. He unpacks the potential laden in humble beginnings and things forsaken. Kim succeeds in communicating compelling readings of life's experiential knowledge.""
