Comments The Zen Teachings of Jesus

  • Doug Piero

    Leong has written a book with chapter topics one would expect to find in any Christian spirituality book, e.g. Hell, Heaven, Faith, etc. He quotes Jesus, but then presents the sayings of Jesus in light of Zen Buddhism. Much in the New Testament is made clearer in this way. I confess that part of what I enjoyed in this book was the author's understanding agreeing with mine so often. I am used to keeping my thoughts about Jesus or the apostles to myself, because they don't fit in with the Scofield [...]

    Eh. Not a good book. The author was definately "reaching".


  • Amos Smith

    An excellent book that gives a fresh angle on Jesus as a teacher of non-dual awareness. Leong rightly perceives that there are many corollaries between Zen and the teachings of Jesus, especially the parables. Jesus and Zen are not about dualistic black and white absolutes. Jesus and Zen are about holding the creative tensions between opposites. That's where we find creativity, energy, and dynamism! Leong apprehends the holistic flavor of Jesus' parables, which don't settle for simplistic either/ [...]


  • Michael Anderson

    Take away everything orthodox about Jesus (think Nicene Creed), reinterpret his parables in a Zennie way, and you have this book. Good start, maintained for first third of book, but then the author wanders around and stretches his arguments to the breaking point. I would love to believe all this, but it just seems a little pat. Maybe JC did spend 10 years learning pragmatic Buddhism and wanted to share his knowledge with the poor and uneducated through koan-like parables. Anyone seen "The Man Fr [...]

    Excellent! One of those books I marked up with yellow hi-liter all over the text and will have to go back through it more than once not only for its enlightening and nourishing insights but for the pure joy of reading. A book to be read slowly and to be carried around to be pulled out and browsed through and hung onto for its warm and wise comfort especially as we wander about in these cold and trying times full of so much foolishness.

    This book served as a foundation for me to write The Enlightenment of Jesus and For the Love of Sophia. The book raised new questions when I was stuck on old answers. David W. Jones/book/show/1/book/show/1

    All in all it is readable, enlightening, well done. It isn't overly impressive in the amount of material it cites to make a compelling case for the parallels between zen and Christian teaching but one has to wonder whether that was in intentional so as not to overwhelm the reader.


  • Richard

    This book was fully amazing. I loved it. I thought he did a marvelous job distilling Zen in a way that is immediately familiar and approachable to a western audience. There were a few conclusions I disagreed with, but for the most part, I thought the book was on point. Loved.
