I took a glimpse at the table of contents, but then I was confronted by this gem "jesus as a zorastrian saoshyant, the redeemer of the world".

This, combined with the title of the work makes me think the author is trying a bit too hard to force a connection between Christianity and the Eastern religions which are no more closely related to each other than they are to Arabrhamic faiths. Quite frankly, it's rather disrespectful both to Christianity and to Taoism, Buddhism, Hinduism, and Confucianism. The last one is not even a religion, it's actually a secularized civil code with heavy Taoist influences.
