I loved it! Thank you Neil for "accepting" your assignment as God's Messenger.
Definitely some great messages like the first one, but it seems like Mr. Walsch's personal beliefs tint a lot of the dialogue. Of course I would expect that as everything would be filtered through his life experiences, vocabulary, culture, and knowledge. If I had a similar dialogue, perhaps the solutions for our problems would come out as more libertarian. Perhaps not. Regardless, it's always interesting hearing different perspectives and challenging truths you hold. I understand people coming to this material are at all levels of spiritual growth, but personally I found the political and Christian stereotypes to be a little bit annoying. It seemed like he was still playing dumb (or Devil's advocate, if you will) for the benefit of those who grew up in strict religions. Which, admittedly, is probably a great need for many people. Some continued repetition about how God came to him. Good interviews. Overall, a good addition to the Conversations and a continued positive message of love!
This version is said to be "unabridged" but it clearly is not. It states right at the beginning that is "selections" from book 2. Disappointed.
I have and I will. I've read the book three times as well as listened to it countless times. These are word to live by. Like it says in the book "...even if this is just the ramblings of Neale Donald Walsch, can you think of a better way to live your life?". I can't!
CWG Book 1 and Book 3. Nothing else compares.
Humor and personality.
Every moment was golden.
Empowering, life changing
too many to count
This book is mildly annoying for two reasons. Narrative is constantly interrupted by musical interludes and interviews with the author, which breaks the narrative flow. Come on Audible, lift your game on this one. It ruins an otherwise good listen.
Say something about yourself!
I like this series mostly because it is right inline with my own belief system I suppose. If you havent read the 1st book, I do suggest getting that one before Book Two...but it doesnt really matter.
I dont think it matters if this guy is talking to God, or if he is just talking to himself (one in the same if you are of that mindset) but I like the hard questions and the seemly obvious answers that we tend to forget. Great reminders for me, and us all.
I love these books, and recommend them to anyone with an open mind. I also find them quiet witty at times...turns out even "God" likes a laugh here and there.
Honestly though, I think I preferred the hard copy books, which is usually not the case with me.
Only negative for me - The voice of "God" switches between 2 people, and while I understand the point behind that it was still a bit annoying to listen to.
