Offering guidance to emperors, generals, and kings for millennia, the I Ching remains a powerful oracle today. However, many seekers find its symbolism and outdated metaphors a challenge to interpret. Mark McElroy strips away obscure references and reverently recasts the I Ching''s ancient ideas into everyday terms, making it fast and easy to apply its enduring wisdom to contemporary life.
Neither a translation nor a paraphrased interpretation, I Ching for Beginners helps readers consult this remarkable Chinese classic with confidence. For each of the I Ching''s sixty-four passages, McElroy provides a summary, study questions, and keywords, and explains how the message relates to relationships, love, work, and projects. Also included are directions for creating and interpreting hexagrams.
