Most books further describing 'A Course in Miracles' are worth listening to and this one is no exception. It is very obvious that Jon is knowledgeable on his material and a great student of the Course. He clarified many questions I had and raised some more which makes me want to study more. Good teaching!
The content is awesome and VERY thought provoking, and I stress these two things heavily, however the narration made for a struggle to complete the book. I would love to hear it again but don't think I could do it unless someone else did the reading. (Be sure to listen to the sample to see if you could take several hours of it.)
I am a fan of Marianne Williamson, her teachings, and her thinking so it would be hard for me to not like anything she has written. This book offered the encouragement and redirection my life needed right now. Sometimes we need to be re-focused and Marianne gently did that. What perfect timing here at the new year and start of a new Baktun!
As always she brings her awesome prayers to each chapter and weaves many teachings from 'A Course in Miracles' into her story. I appreciate that she pulls stories out of her own life to illustrate her point.
If you are looking for a book to offer a deep breath of fresh air then purchase this one.
I am a HUGE fan of Neale's having read most all his previous works. The contents of this book still have me a fan but several times I did have to turn it off and 'digest' what he was saying. He gets his point across about 'the only thing that matters' but sometimes in an annoying way. Maybe its just the pace I learn at (slowly!). I found myself getting frustrated with his comparisons that ran on FOREVER and how the topics swirled back on each other. With all that said this book is definitely worth the credit and time taken to listen to it. You will learn a lot and have MANY 'ah ha' moments. As usual Neale is very comforting in one segment and then knocks you off your base in the next only to steady you again in the following one. I will listen again soon (after my head quits spinning from this round!)
Excellent explanations and effective an effective apologetic defense of the gospel. Walter Martin nails it. A great read. If you want to see what the difference between "true" Christianity and a cult, this is the book to read. Very clear and concise.
