    More Jesus junk

    Sadly, the evangelicals never tell us of the REAL Jesus.. the loving prophet.. the spiritual thinker and teacher.. They are hell bent on spreading their dogma, prejudice, and nonsense.. This book is a prime example and precisely why it got such abysmal ratings!

    Disappointing

    This book does little more than call Mr. Tolle misguided because this author sees Tolle's book as different from the author's interpretation of scripture, and therefore Tolle is at best psychologically delusional and at worst in the grip of Satanic forces. What is obvious is that this author is missing the point, as well as being slanderous and insulting.

    But ultimately, the proof is in the pudding, as they say. Who is leading a happier more prosperous and loving life, among these two? Whose message has felt true to more hearts and souls around the world? I hope readers will step back and look at the results and the realities and make up their own minds, and not just take this author's word for it.

    This book will make very little difference in the scheme of the unfolding of the consciousness of the universe, and is not worth getting angry about, but is worth feeling compassion and forgiveness for.

    This is a poor case

    Is this the best that the closed minded people of church dogma can do to nuetralize the beauty and wisdom of Eckart Tolle's message? This is swinging wildly in the dark. What a closed view of reality.

    As christians see it.......

    You will love this book if christianity makes sense to you, but if it doesn't then you will not enjoy it at all. All anyone can do is read some of both versions and decide for themselves which rings true for them.

    Highly Recommended

    I found it to be very enlightening. I read the tolle book and thought it seemed a little "off". I hate people's comments who obviously dont share in the views of a Christian author. Why do you bother to read the book if you know it is a Christian author and you disagree with biblical principals and what a Christian author would stand for? Your comments were unfair to this author and your ratings may have hurt future and most likely past sales of a very good book, which seems very unfair to me.

    christian schmistian

    the person who wrote this book obviously doesn't get it. look, if you're a fundamentalist christian, you'd best stay away from "the power of now." you wouldn't want anything to make you question everything you've been taught to believe.

    Silly Book

    This book was as articulate and insightful as a blog comment section... the author appears to believe that religion/dogma is as simplistic as rooting for one sports team or another. It was as if he believes Tolle represents a threat to his beliefs in a similar way to how he would feel if Tolle liked the Lakers and he is a Clippers fan. Just doesn't get it

    Not Enlightening

    If you drove a firetruck all your life and then tried to buy a sedan you would keep wondering where the hose compartment was, why there weren't any ladders, why the siren and beacon were removed, etc. He didn't read for information only to condemn and took most of his comments out of context and then added scripture to make himself sound pious. If you want to get the same feeling this book gives you, drink a cup of cocoa, get your teddy bear and stick your head under your pillow, maybe it'll all go away. Maybe world peace, the end of hatred and discrimination, and the fact that we are all part of the same thing will disappear.

    If You've Fallen Under Oprah's Spell, Read This Book

    Oprah spouts off about being a Christian, but clearly isn't. Anyone who has gotten sucked into her New Age books that masquerade under the guise of 'Spiritual Awakening' needs to wake up and read books like this.
