Inspired Book Club: Conversations with God
Paperback: 240 pages
Publisher: Hodder and Stoughton; New Ed edition (6 Feb 1997)
Neale Donald Walsch was experiencing a low period in his life when he decided to write a letter to God, venting his frustrations. What he did not expect was a response. As he finished his letter, he was moved to continue writing – and out came extraordinary answers to his questions. This work presents the answers that Walsch received, helping him to change himself, his life and the way he viewed other beings.
REVIEW byLynda Mangoro
“You came into this life with nothing to learn – you have only to demonstrate what you already know”
This was a profound read for me. Not just because of the amazing story of the author – who, after hitting rock bottom, really did find his answers during his own astounding dialogue with God, but because of the many answers that dialogue also gave to me.
This book (the first in a trilogy which I eagerly digested) really does explain it all. What we are, why we are here, how we can embrace our power and create meaningful lives… it doesn’t shy away from any of the big questions and they were questions I had been askign for a long long time! Of course, I’m not one to just blindly believe anything I read… but I do trust my own inner voice, and that inner voice felt the truth of every word I read in this book. Neale’s conversation with God, was actually a conversation for us all.
I have to admit that at firs I was put off by the use of the word God due to my own religious connotations – but I soon came to realise this book does not talk of God as a being or person outside of ourselves, judging and condeming, but of the very source energy that IS us all, that is the core essence of all creation. This book will change your life!
Neale Donald Walsch
Neale Donald Walsch is a modern day spiritual messenger whose words continue to touch the world in profound ways. With an early interest in religion and a deeply felt connection to spirituality, Neale spent the majority of his life thriving professionally, yet searching for spiritual meaning before beginning his now famous conversation with God. His With God series of books has been translated into 37 languages, touching millions of lives and inspiring important changes in their day-to-day lives.
In addition to authoring the renowned With God series, Neale has published 16 other works, as well as a number of video and audio programs. Available throughout the world, each of the CwG dialogue books has made the New York Times Bestseller list, Conversations with God-Book 1 occupying that list for over two and half years.
The With God Series has redefined God and shifted spiritual paradigms around the globe. In order to deal with the enormous response to his writings, Neale created the Conversations with God Foundation, a non-profit educational organization dedicated to inspiring the world to help itself move from violence to peace, from confusion to clarity, and from anger to love.
Neale’s work has taken him from the steps of Macchu Picchu in Peru to the steps of the Shinto shrines of Japan, from Red Square in Moscow to St. Peters Square in Vatican City to Tiananmen Square in China. And everywhere he has gone-from South Africa to Norway, Croatia to The Netherlands, the streets of Zurich to the streets of Seoul, Neale has found a hunger among the people to find a new way to live, at last, in peace and harmony, and he has sought to bring people a new understanding of life and of God which would allow them to experience that.
