Review

Why do Christians believe they should practice the "presence" of Jesus? Because it promises them increased intimacy with God, thus bypassing the Cross. It does seem to fill a spiritual void and/or an emotional need. And it is an easy device. Under these new teachings, believers no longer need to trouble themselves about confessing besetting sins in their lives. Instead, this new voice of "Jesus" speaks rosy promises of guidance and transformation, even wealth and power. This "Jesus" even promises co-creative power, the ability to transform the world by our meditative attitudes. By concentrating on the words "be still," believers learn that we can even become God.

Smith's critiques all of this in a brief well-laid-out 176-page book. This is Warren Smith at his best - his easy folksy style renders hard concepts accessible and understandable. Each chapter is very brief and to the point. Smith raises Ten Concerns about the original book God Calling, which entered the Christian world in 2005, and Twenty Concerns about Sarah Young's Jesus Calling, which has more recently taken the evangelical world by storm. Is Jesus indeed speaking a new word to us today? Or is this the voice of "another Jesus" who is calling upon the world to laugh at the future? Smith's analyses are insightful.

Sarah Young's "Jesus" encourages believers to gain more spirituality through creative visualization. This "Jesus" flatters her readers with florid speeches such as "Let My gold-tinged Love wash over you and soak into the depths of your being" and "When your Joy in Me meet My Joy in you, there are fireworks of heavenly ecstasy. This same passionate "Jesus" is rapidly gaining traction elsewhere in the evangelical world. He offers spiritual experiences that are addictive and mind-altering, but not based on the truth taught in God's Word the Bible. He promises intimacy without repentance, spirituality without salvation, and communion without regeneration. Nevertheless many believe these new words.

--Sarah Leslie, (Researcher and author) Discernment Ministries and Herescope Blog

Every believer should read and digest . . . "Another Jesus" Calling. [Smith] clearly understands the major mystical philosophies and themes being brought into the church today. . . . It is obvious that Young learned occult channeling from God Calling when she states; I decided to listen to God with pen in hand, writing down whatever I believed He was saying , (Smith page 53). We would have to ask how Young can be certain of the origin of the communication? --Pst. G. Richard Fisher, Midwest Christian Outreach

I did not know about the author of Jesus Calling, and thus was educated by Mr. Smith.

Warren B. Smith's "Another Jesus" Calling is a must read for Christians who are involved with, contemplating involvement in, or have questions relating to the God Calling and Jesus Calling devotionals. Smith contrasts the messages from Sarah Young's "Jesus" with quotes from the Biblical Jesus. This contrast reveals the New Age foundation for Young's book. Smith's book is extremely well written, but I especially appreciated the organization of the information which makes "Another Jesus" Calling a wonderful reference book of New Age terminology that seems to be creeping in to Christian books and churches. This is necessary reading for anyone in church leadership.

Amazing he can continue on his subject and it is always fresh. I did not know about the author of Jesus Calling, and thus was educated by Mr. Smith. Floored me to walk into my local Christian bookstore to see this book all over the place. Apparently there is no discernment today. People are so un-biblically-educated, that they do not know a false Christ from the real deal. Warren, really helps set one straight with this book.

For those so taken by Sarah Young's devotional "Jesus Calling", as I was for nearly two years, this short and scripturally-documented book is an eye opener. Well-versed in New Age techniques, Warren Smith contrasts the writings of Young with New Age practices, finding many troubling similarities. Though there are times when "Jesus Calling" seemed to meet my spiritual and emotional needs on a particular day, more and more I felt that its intent was to "wrap" me in a peaceful cocoon where I would just bask in Jesus' "presence". This is not the Christian life to which we are called. We are to engage the world, while not being "of" it, showing Christ's love and forgiveness to all around us. This can be a gritty business, especially when we are first asked to repent of our own sin. Young never mentions sin, guilt, redemption, sacrifice....all part of a true Christian's life. True peace is ours when we follow the Lord's will, not insulating ourselves from life on this flawed planet.

Every christian should read this book. Smith exposes the deception that is rampant these days in the contemplative movement and the New Age philosophy that has invaded the churches. He reveals how JESUS CALLING is nothing less than channeling.

I wondered what all the Hoopla was about, as I couldn’t pass a bookstore that wasn't pushing Jesus Calling. I saw the book at Wal-Mart. I read one of the shorter pages at random. The first thing that struck me was the sheer saccharin nature of the writing. But more than that, something sounded dreadfully wrong. I could not quite figure it out at the time, but tossed the book back on the shelf. Having read this book, I’ve found out what it was that bothered me.
Actually, having spent five and a half years living in a Vasishnava Hindu (Personalist - believes both God and you are eternally separate persons) monastery 40 years ago before I became a Christian, I caught something in the quotations that the author missed. Some of these statements are nothing more than paraphrased quotations from the Upanishads and Bhagavad Gita, Mayavada Hindu (Impersonalist) - God and you are oneness, not individuals, and that personality is an illusion you really should get over. Oh and the entire universe is an illusion, Ignore it and meditate on oneness.) ‘holy’ books. Which is not surprising since the New Age is based on a rewritten Mayavada Hinduism blended with Spiritualism (séances and that sort of thing) Buddhism and Taoism (a Chinese Impersonal philosophy religion), slightly rewritten to make it palatable to western ears.

"Another Jesus" Calling is another excellent book from this author. I recently received this book as a gift and found I couldn't put it down. The author does a great job of exposing the doctrinal error in the book Jesus Calling by Sarah Young. I am thankful that we have men such as Warren Smith who can discern doctrinal error and expose it in such a readable and understandable fashion.

The bible teaches that in the last days the church would move away from sound doctrine and right into doctrines of devils. This book is right on in its assessment of Sarah Young's popular book.

Warren Smith has great insights from his early years of involvement in the New Age Spirituality. That insight, along with an obvious knowledge of scripture, make this book a great resource for discerning Christians.

I highly recommend the other works by this author.

I have seen Warren Smith at several conferences and read many of his books and he is a wealth of information on the New Age movement and the infiltration of the New Age and occult influence permeating the Christian churches today. He warns of the subtle and the overt doctrines that even the most devout Christians are falling for and the churches are allowing in. This book meticulously outlines the source that the author of Jesus Calling gets her inspiration. Sarah Young (author of Jesus Calling) was greatly influenced by the book God Calling years before she wrote her book. Warren Smith shows the errors of the book God Calling and Jesus Calling not by blasting the authors, but rather by comparing the god/jesus/spirit guides of these books to the God/Jesus/Holy Spirit of the bible as the only source of truth.
