It Came from Beyond Zen!

It Came from Beyond Zen!: More Practical Advice from Dogen, Japan's Greatest Zen Master by Brad Warner ($16.95, 9781608685110, October 10, 2017). Brad Warner, a student and teacher of Soto Zen, continues his humorous paraphrasing of Dogen's work, which Warner claims was too far ahead of its time to find a wide audience. Part one, Don't Be a Jerk: And Other Practical Advice from Dogen, Japan's Greatest Zen Master, came out in 2016.

"Another writer who is bringing ancient wisdom into a very modern context is Brad Warner, a Soto Zen teacher, punk bassist, and blogger," said Gardner. "We've published five books with Brad; in all of them he applies Zen philosophy to modern life with humor and irreverence. There are a lot of very exacting translations of The Shobogenzo, but Brad is the first Zen teacher to attempt paraphrasing it in modern English."
