Chapter Summary

It is not an easy task for a Christian to interpret Christian narratives on God, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit when he/she has encountered the Dao of Daoist philosophy (Daojia) and the Jewish spirituality of Kabbalah. In cross-culturally and hermeneutically developing a theological reading of Tao through Jewish-Christian discourse of God in a Trinitarian manifestation, this chapter primarily concerns with demonstrating some of the basic ideas of Dao by reading the Daodejing and Zhuangzi. Then it extends the mystery of Dao to the Christian concept of God and the world in engagement with Jewish-Kabbalistic perspectives. In so doing, the chapter undertakes to interpret a Christian discourse on God's creation, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit in a cross-cultural and postfoundational perspective. Here, God is appreciated as the mysterious place of the world.

Keywords: Christian narrative; Daoist philosophy; Jewish spirituality; Kabbalah
