Amazon.com Review

Conversations with God for Teens reads like a rap session at a church youth group, where teenagers discuss everything they ever wanted to know about life but were too afraid to ask God. Once again author Neale Donald Walsch acts as the verbal conduit, showing teenagers how easy it is to converse with the divine. After the enormous success of his previous Conversations with God books, Walsch was asked to write a book for teenagers. So he collected questions from teenagers around the world, brought them into his private dialogue with God, and then printed God's answers on the page. So when Claudia, age 16, from Perth, Australia, asks, "Why can't I just have sex with everybody? What's the big deal?", the answer God offers her is: "Nothing you do will ever be okay with everybody. 'Everybody' is a large word. The real question is can you have sex and have it be okay with you?" There's no doubt that the casual question-and-answer format will help make God feel welcoming and accessible to teens. And the introduction by Alanis Morissette raises the "cool" factor considerably. Nonetheless, it's not for all teenagers: older adolescents (17 and older) may find it hokey or manipulative, and preteens (10 to 12) could find some of the questions too mature. --Gail Hudson

From Publishers Weekly

Neale Donald Walsch, author of the bestselling Conversations with God, here gathers questions from teens across the globe (from broader queries such as "Why is there so much pressure from parents, from school, from everyone?" to prickly questions such as "Why do you let children get abused sexually and physically?"), takes them to God, and offers the answers in Conversations with God for Teens. Singer/songwriter Alanis Morissette provides the foreword. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

More About the Author

NEALE DONALD WALSCH is a modern day spiritual messenger whose words continue to touch the world in profound ways. With an early interest in religion and a deeply felt connection to spirituality, Neale spent the majority of his life thriving professionally, yet searching for spiritual meaning before experiencing his now famous conversation with God. The "Conversations with God" series of books that emerged from those encounters has been translated into 37 languages, touching millions and inspiring important changes in their day-to-day lives.

"Conversations with God" has redefined God and shifted spiritual paradigms around the globe. In order to deal with the enormous response to his writings, Neale has created several outreach projects, including the CWG Foundation, CWG for Parents, Humanity's Team, the CWG Helping Outreach, and The Global Conversation --- all accessible at the "hub" website CWGPortal.com, and all dedicated to help the world move from violence to peace, from confusion to clarity, and from anger to love.

Neale's work has taken him from the steps of Macchu Picchu in Peru to the steps of the Shinto shrines of Japan, from Red Square in Moscow to St. Peters Square in Vatican City to Tiananmen Square in China. And everywhere he has gone --- from South Africa to Norway, Croatia to The Netherlands, the streets of Zurich to the streets of Seoul --- Neale has experienced a hunger among the people to find a new way to live, at last, in peace and harmony, and he has sought to bring people a new understanding of life and of God which would allow them to experience that.

He lives with his wife, the American poet Em Claire, in Oregon. Find out more at NealeDonaldWalsch.com.

During high school I stuck to my firm belief that I believed in God and there was nothing more to it than that. I wasn't a big fan of thinking about God or talking about God, even though I secretly talked to him on occasion. My parents had allowed me to grow up and develop my own ideas about my spirituality, and if/when I was interested in talking to my parents about it they were ready to oblige. But at the time, I wasn't.

Now, I grew up in an area that was very much predominantly Christian, but the religion never hit a chord with me. In fact, most religions didn't because of the simple fact that I couldn't see myself being boxed in by the limited and set beliefs of religion. If I didn't agree with the entire religion, then why should I choose it for guidance? Why should I choose it as MY religion? This was how I rationalized it. I had my own ideas and feelings about God and life, so why should I just follow along blindly? Why shouldn't I question and decide for myself?

I went through an extremely rough point in my life during my teenage years. I began to become more curious about God and I searched for Him/Her during my senior year of high school and the beginning of college. I started to hear about a book, "Conversations with God". Honestly, the first time I heard it, the title turned me off. It made me think of all the overtly religious people I'd met throughout my life and I was thinking, "I don't know if I want anything to do with this...".

But the book stayed in the back of my mind and I continued to hear about it, so I finally took it as a sign and I bought "The Complete Conversations with God". It was the best thing I've ever done for myself.

Here was a book that put my feelings into words. Here was a book that made me feel loved.

I am writing this review with the hope that someone in a dilemma to give this book a try would lean *for* it seeing this.

As this book itself says several times, you don't need to beleive that Neale had a conversation with God to trust in the contents. Why not read what the book has to offer and then conclude based on the contents? Personally, I found the contents very relevant, down-to-earth, honest and unpretentious.

Needless to say, it would contradict with the Bible on several occasions - but it never claimed otherwise anywhere. The basic premise of the book is to offer observations - and it says "what works" in today's scenario and "what doesn't" - given what we choose to experience as human beings.

I read several reviews that quoted the contents of this book out of context - which would make the statements sound absurd. To state a few examples

"Life has no purpose" - this was listed to illustrate that Life has no universal purpose (or no single purpose for the human race as a whole). You make your own purpose based on your preferences, values, experiences and so on. Don't you think this makes sense, and is a fact for all of us?

"Have sex with anyone..." - perhaps, it would have been helpful if this statement was quoted with the passages discussing the implications - STD, pregnancy and so on.

I wish I could quote every single bad review on this book and write my viewpoints on what the book actually discussed. At worst, it boils down to a disagreement, which is nowhere close to a blasphemy I think.

My request to you (if you haven't read the book already) is to read the book with an open-mind. Suspend all judgements and see what the book has to offer. If you find it relevant, use it. Otherwise discard it.

This book Blows! I love Books I-III but this one is crappy. Neale starts off ok, using real questions from Teens (and a few of his own) but he then adds in "follow up questions" Thats where this book gets off the rails.
Firstly, in the intro, he praises these kids to have the open mind to want to talk to God and how they are not closed minded, so with that in mind, Neales "follow up questions" have the kids insulting God, mocking God and you have God trying to justify himself. It's a idiot book! The follow up questions are like "some God you are" and "yah right". I dont know what kind of kids Neale hangs with, but in this book, he uses follow up questions as if all the kids had an Attitude or a chip on their shoulder, nothing like the open minded kids he spoke of in the books introduction.
The follow up questions posed by Neale DESTROYED this book and makes it useless! Also, these are kids, yet this book reads as if they are adults and some of the answers are really dangerious. God tells kids basically to rebel from their parents and to question their authority, God tells them to have sex and not be ashamed about it, mind you this is for TEENS! 13, 14 , 15 years old.
This Book is a NOT like Books I-III where God tells of the mysteries of life, this Book here is a load of CRAP!

The problem with this book is that the title is very deceptive. I think that most people would assume that this books is talking about conversations with the God of the Bible. Reading some of the answers from "God," it is obvious that is not true. A more appropriate title would be: Conversations with the god of Your own Making or Conversations with the god Within Yourself. Call me a "Bible banger" if you like, but the reality is that the God of the Bible would never tell a teen that there, "is no right from wrong," or to go out and celebrate her lesbianism. You can label me intolerant too, but it isn't me that is intolerant, it would be the God of the Bible who is intolerant, intolerant of sin. The bad reviews written about this book are, for the most part, coming from people who share the Christian faith that is followers of Jesus Christ and if you understand the true Christian Faith, you will understand why certain reviewers are upset by this book. So if you are a Christian, this is not the book for your teen. If you believe in moral relativism or even nothing at all, this would be the book for you.
