Format: Hardcover
I find it interesting, but not surprising, that readers of this series are so polarized in their opinions. As soon as someone reads something in this "Conversation With God" that they don't agree with, a knee-jerk reaction tends to ensue. "This can't be from God! Walsch is a con artist!"
Please note that Neale never intended this to be a new Gospel, and says so many times. Indeed, those who take it that way are missing the series' entire point, which is "be Who You Are".
In this Book III, the dialogue expands to include a disseration on cosmology, including some fascinating insights on how highly evolved beings throughout the universe conduct their affairs. Book one is a hug from God; book two is kind of a shoulder-shake, and this, book three, is in my view a kind of melding of minds.
This book shares what in my view are the series' main flaws:
1) Repetitiveness. Maybe I just "get it" faster, but repeating the material gets a bit tiresome at times.
2) A new-age-y style of speaking that can be off-putting, even as I appreciate and am inspired by the truths behind the statements. At times like this I simply remember that "words are the least reliable means of communication" and rewrite the sentiment in my own words.
At any rate, this is a worthy conclusion to the dialogue series, and if you come to it with an open mind--which is to say, a questioning mind--it will work wonders on you.

Format: Hardcover
This book burns at you. It challenges you, slaps the cheeks of your cherished beliefs. Mayhap it completely discomfits your faith, your imagination, your credos--whatever you assume makes you simply human.
Does that mean you have to take it literally? No, not really. Yet, take a look at yourself, your life, your limits, and ponder, what did Einstein mean when he said, "Imagination is more important than knowledge." "Conversations with God, book 3" is trying to get you to digest imponderables, not facts.
The principles are simple. A rock is just as much a part of God--the all-encompassing universe--as you are. Separateness is an illusion. The tendency of men is to put God and their gods in their own image. We imagine our lives, and their outcomes, as they are, as they'll be and have been, as we live them. (Take a clue from Shakespeare, in "As You Like It": "All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players.") We all collaborate with the Creator in this mundane and divine drama: author, producer, director, interchanging roles as we choose, for the experience and expression of life.
Awful lot to assay in one book--even one so entertaining despite the fact that, By God, it's just one long dialogue!--and somebody is bound to get bugged by the repetitions and references to the earlier books. Someone else may get bent out of shape and cry "Blasphemy!" over its depiction of an Almighty with a sense of humor. There might be protests that this book represents reckless New Age idealism, that it rebukes that "old-time" religion, that at bottom it's only money-grubbing, ego-driven fiction--"all made up"--naked of fact and wrapped only in whimsy. Whew!

Format: Hardcover
I have grown-up in the deep South, where the Bible and religious fundamentalists fill the air like love bugs on a stifling hot Florida spring day. My father was an ordained minister and I was preaching, complete with my own little red bible, at the age of four. As I entered adolescence I began to rebel worse than an alcoholic at an AA convention. I spent many years looking for answers to my spiritual questions, totally assured that they were not to be found in organized religion.
In this book, I have found the answers that my soul longed for, leading to a complete and absolute epiphany. Walsch wrote the words I have always thought, but never dared to mutter, not even to my most trusted friends. At first I found his context, an actual conversation with God, to be unsettling. After recovering from this shock, I found this work to be the best book I have ever read, and re-read.
I warn you, unless you are genuinely looking for answers, unless you are prepared to view your existence in an unfamiliar manner and unless you want to be liberated from the plague of this planet disguised as the dogma of organized religion, don't buy this book!

I have read the many reviews of this book. While most are of the grateful many whose lives were changed by this book, some are of the closed minded saying that it was just Walsh's own views, using "New Age" Rhetoric.
Well that's fine. Go ahead, label it. Dismiss this book as the acts of a greedy man just spouting off old ideas for money, if it makes you feel better. Stay inside your walls.
Your right. It is a good possibility that the ideas in this book were spoken by someone else before Walsch. But does it mean that if someone else has had these same ideas of peace and freedom, it makes what's in this book any less valid?
Some people may need a church to feel valid in their spiritual life, and that too is fine. The core of many religions are good, no matter how rotten the shell is. Yet for those of us who do not need to find God in the pages of an ancient book; for those of us who would rather find God in the now and every thing around us, this book will help clarify your questions.
Now, you can believe what he says or not. I too, while reading this book, found passages where Walsh's own mind came in the way of what I believed God was saying. But if you know the truth of God, and can recognize it in any form, you will find it inside the pages of this book.
For those who think that this was done solely for money: Does it matter? Do the authors intentions really have an effect on the message of the book? Is it not written in the Bible that the word of God doesn't loose its power, no matter who speaks it? I know of thousands of people who's lives were changed that saw paying for this book as a way of saying thank you. I believe that Walsh wrote this book to help people that were in the position he was. The money was just a side effect.
