Blasphemy! Heresy! Who does this man think he is, claiming to speak directly to God?! Jesus did it, Muhammad did it, the Jewish prophets did it, but none of their Gods had the sardonic wit or raw verve of Prophet Walsch's God. Neale Donald Walsch isn't claiming to be the Messiah of a new religion, just a frustrated man who sat down one day with pen in his hand and some tough questions in his heart. As he wrote his questions to God, he realized that God was answering them... directly... through Walsch's pen. The result, far from the apocalyptic predictions or cultic eccentricities you might expect, turns out to be matter-fact, in-your-face wisdom on how to get by in life while remaining true to yourself and your spirituality.

As I read, I encountered passage after passage where the message resonated with my life experiences and with long-held, unarticulated beliefs. The book literally transformed me at a fundamental level that I, at the age of 51, did not believe was possible. Or even desirable. Yet, I find I like myself better now and I am at peace in my center.
Whether God -- whatever you understand Him, Her or It to be -- actually spoke to and through Walsch to you or whether you conclude these are Waslch's studied ideas passed on to you in the form of a God dialog, you will find the content to be thought-provoking, challenging, and immensely spiritually insightful.
Ultimately, I think books such as this should be judged not on their claims but on their results. In my case, the result is a spiritual renewal that has my family, friends, coworkers and acquaintances staring in genuine shock. My life has been changed...and I can now make a real contribution to changing the world.
I just read a preview of Book 2 and I can't wait. Meanwhile, I'm re-reading this one and highlighting things that are particulary important to me.
If you're an open-minded person who believes that God never stops talking to us, then you really owe it to yourself to buy this book. It may not change your life as it has mine, but it will certainly challenge your thinking. And that, in the final analysis, is the best commentary I can offer on any book.
About two years ago, I decided to actually sit down and read this book from cover to cover. I found out some information that really helped me, and has continued to influence my outlook on life.
This book is not "New Age". The beliefs presented in this book may be new to Christians who have never explored other religions. However, this book seems to blend ancient beliefs from Hinduism, Jainism, Buddhism, and yes, even Christianity (and probably a few others, but these were the ones that really stuck out to me).
Also, this book is very tolerant of other religions, and their various spiritual masters. "God" in this book seems to say that all spiritual masters, regardless of their religion, have achieved the same thing -- oneness with the Divine. "God" says that, "You say it is difficult to walk the path of Christ, to follow the teachings of the Buddha, to hold the light of Krishna, to be a master.Read more ›
