Description

The Tao Te Ching, written by Lao Tzu, is the seminal text of Chinese Taoism, and its origins can be traced back to the late fourth or early third centuries BCE.
Thousands of translations and interpretations of the Tao Te Ching have been undertaken over time. Each of these has striven to accurately reflect the intended meaning behind the frequently ambiguous, occasionally rhymed and often obscure philosophical poetry of the original text.
This interpretation, by David Burke, has been made in the context of a broader spiritual framework. David, a theologian and teacher, has spent many years of doctoral research examining the underlying philosophical and theological themes shared by Islam and Christianity. His interpretation suggests that these key themes are also reflected in the philosophy espoused by the Tao Te Ching.
With its focus on simplicity, love, surrender and humility, David Burke's interpretation of the Tao Te Ching has touched many who are searching for a greater understanding of the universe and their own place in it.

Phone Call Alert! 

(Please read, thanks.) 

Old Timey Switchboard Operator Cartoon

 

Due to the COVID-19 onslaught, we currently cannot take incoming phone calls.  

And since nobody reads anything, I've simply removed the phone number from the site.  

A notification about phone calls:  due to the COVID-19 plague, we've significantly increased our incoming inquiries--nearly double our usual volume--and the number of incoming inquiries by phone has been literally overwhelming.  Although most writers will say that their call "will only take 15 minutes," the truth is, that after 10 years of doing this, most author inquiry calls take an hour.  45 minutes at best. I'm currently receiving 7-10 calls/day, and due to that, I've had to stop accepting incoming phone calls, which my voicemail will tell you. You can leave a message--I can't call you back without one--and if a call is needed, I will of course call you.  But we have very complete and extensive email replies, handouts and our website is very informative. Almost all the questions that I receive during a call are actually already answered on our site, or are, in fact, publishing questions, not questions about our services, what we do, what we offer, or the like.  I already handle between 90-130 emails/day, as it is. I can't handle that many emails and take 7-10 hours of calls each day. I can't. So, in order to be able to answer this huge email volume, to help the greatest number of people, with my time, I've had to stop accepting calls.  I'm sorry, but that's just how it is. I'm in the process of setting up a call-appointment function, for free 15-minute calls to answer questions from new prospective customers and longer paid sessions for folks who generally want consulting on "publishing," generally (and for prospective kids' book publishers, as a special category of paid consulting).  But that functionality isn't yet set up. I hope to get that working the 3rd week of July, sometime.  

Thank you for your understanding.
