I have not read this book but I was looking at some reviews and wanted to comment. (The five stars are for the benefit of the doubt) I saw one review where the fellow rated very low based on some family members experiences. He made some comments about the interpretation of the book, second hand mind you, but not ever reading it for himself. He called himself a "Christian", and put down the book by stating it was "New Age Drivel" etc. My only comment about this is concerning somebody who has not read a book and is willing to post a review about it. This is probably more disrespectful and narrow-minded than the accusations toward the book may be. My experience has been that Christianity is about "Loving one another". Isn't that what Jesus commanded? The funny thing is that most professing Christians disobey that commandment daily by damning everybody to hell that doesn't agree with their theology. I am a believer in Jesus Christ myself but it is Christians like this guy who makes the gospel a very unattractive thing for people. I believe that every man, woman and child has been redeemed by Jesus Christ whether they believe it or not. How can the belief in something make it true? If I believe that gravity doesn't exist and I jump off this building, well, you figure out the rest. Doing "ANYTHING", whether it is believing or otherwise promotes self-righteousness and if one is blind to see that, that is a sure sign they suffer from self-righteousness. The bible says it is for freedom that Christ has set you free. Freedom defined is,"Exemption for moral or mortal liability." Evangelical Christianity and the fundamentalists, according to the gospel of Jesus Christ and this short treatise, are heretics.
SO, read the book before you make comments about it. As you can see, my comments are not about this book so I don't qualify for that.
