Wow! Very interesting perspectives on the world around us and extraordinary insight about what our purpose in life is — to discover who we truly are! Many great lessons we can learn here. Some being said many times by many teachers / authors throughout the history, but this is the first time it is so straightforward and so clear about being, live mindfully, think big - highest choice, highest good etc.

The author purports to have knowledge of God's thoughts without going back to the Bible and God's sovereign Word to verify God's will and commandments (moral rules of living). Anybody can say anything and get away with it these days. We've lost our ability to discern! How are we to know where this author gets his source? Imaginings? His own heart and yearnings and desires? No thanks. If I want a conversation with God, I will read His Word, not another man of flesh.

I am unsure how to address the 'Conversations With God" books. I think the author is just as valid in belief and assertion that he as spoken with God as any other Prophet who ever wrote down a scripture. I don't say that as a compliment however. He does make an interesting point when he straight up asks 'God' how he can know whether he's really having the conversation or simply losing his mind. 'God' says that the question is irrelevant and impossible to answer, rather 'God' suggests that Walsh ask himself (and that by association the read should ask as well) whether what has been said was useful.

By that benchmark, I found that the first book bears up, just barely. Out of all the new age woo that I read as a young man; this is one of the very few that hasn't lost all value to me in the years that followed. The same cannot be said for the movie (although it's interesting) or the second and third books in the series. But hey, that's still better than a lot of other new age rubbish I read back in the day.

Very interesting if approached with an open mind.

Absolutely amazing read! I couldn't put it down. And I think about half of the words in the book are highlighted.

Completely life changing! Helps understand that it is not complicated to pray and ask God for what you desire in life. Your prayers are always answered.

I have the next 2 books on my christmas list this year. I actually miss not reading this book right now.
