Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

In Conversations with God: Book II, Neale Walsch and God resume their discussion and move on to larger topics than the personal issues addressed in their previous dialogue in Volume 1. For an "unedited transcript" of a conversation, Book II is remarkably well organized and articulate, as if Walsch anticipatd our "but what about" questions before we asked them. The peculiar pair discuss time, space, politics, and even kinky sex, but Conversations with God: Book II isn't here for just shock value. It is an honest look at some of the broad issues important to all of us on the planet, and a suggestion of how things might go if we are all willing to open our minds and have our own conversations with divinity. --Brian Patterson --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Review

I read this and it completely turned everything I believe about religion on its head. If you are at all religious, you should read this book.' Francis Rossi of Status Quo, Metro

I am not a Christian, so I do not think that this book is dangerous in that it presents a false truth.

After reading the Conversations with God books, all 3, and An Encounter With A Prophet, I now feel sorry for those people who still believe in the God of fire and brimstone. Thanks guys!

I came to read this book (and also the trilogy)through a friend who said she found comfort and wisdom in its pages. She said that whenever she felt depressed and hopeless she would simply open the book and read, and before long her depression would disappear. Because of my respect for my friend I decided to read a few pages myself.
I found myself reading all three books very quickly. I found the dialogue between Walsh and God captivating to say the least. As a person who has studied the Bible for a large portion of my life I can say that much of what is covered in Book 2 and the trilogy is hard to accept(and I'm not so sure I can accept some of its messages). But I am trying to keep an open mind.
Overall, the message of CWG (to me) is to treat others as you want to be treated and know that all things begin with love. While this is a message that we all should have heard before(the teachings of Jesus? ), the New Age slant to the message was unexpectedly attractive. The idea that there is no Devil, and that Hell is only a harsh mythology, is quite refreshing to someone taught to fear both of these things.
Finally, I don't know if Mr. Walsh is talking to God or not. I don't really care. What I have read in these books has caused me to ask questions about my own belief system and ask questions about my understanding of me, God, and the Universe. The real treasure with this book and this trilogy, is that we are asked to question our understanding of our Self. We are asked to do the unthinkable and question the validity of organized religions. We are asked to question the direction of our life and determine if that direction will define Who We Really Are.
Any book that helps people do that is well worth the read.

Format: Hardcover
Let me begin by saying that Amazon.com requires me to rate the book in order to write a review. Actually, I have no idea how to rate it because I'm not sure what the book represents. So my three star rating simply means "not rated." If compelled to, I could make an argument for anything from one star to five.
I read this book on the advice of a friend. He told me the book was "fascinating." I certainly agree.
The main thing I would like to say in the beginning is that this book shares some elements with Christianity, but is certainly not Christianity of the sort that most people will recognize. So if you do not like to read books that are at odds with your version of Christianity, avoid this one. It will be a one star book for you.
The author tells us that he had been writing down his religious and philosophical questions on a yellow legal pad for years. One day, he began to hear answers. He then wrote those answers down. What was "dictated" to him becomes the backbone of this book.
I have no way of knowing what the real source of these responses to the questions in the conversations is. It could be Divine communications. It could be Satanic ones. It could be a manifestation of the author's psychology. There are a lot of other things it could be. You'll have to decide for yourself. If you have a spiritual advisor or counselor whom you respect, that would be a good subject to discuss with her or him.
I found myself empathizing with the author's perspective of the conversations. "I am . . . deeply embarrassed by my own life . . . ." "Yet I am encouraged by God to grant myself forgiveness for my failings and not to live in fear and guilt but to always keep trying -- to live a grand vision.

I have always known my childhood teaching about God were flawed. This book tells the truth. I would also recommend the book An Encounter With a Prophet for conformation of these truths.

When I was very young, I did what all other christians do- i accepted Jesus into my heart. I believed 100% in the Bible. One night, at the age of 27 my husband (who is also christian) brought this book home for me. He believed it to be just another christian book. I found it fascinating. I read it in one sitting and could not put it down. The next morning I was very confused. I had NEVER before doubted my religion. I prayed and prayed for God to show me the truth that night and every night since. After all of that prayer, I have to admit that I have felt "led" to keep searching for answers not found in my church or The Bible. These answers and "this God" make more sense. This book and others like it do not give you an "okay to do everything you want" like many of the reviews have said. I do not believe that these reviewers have actually read and tried to understand the full content of these books. They are just scared like I was. Some are scared that the book is wrong and the work of the devil. Some are scared that the book is the truth and that what they have always been taught and believed in is wrong. The latter is how I now see it, and though it has caused me some anguish(due to sifting out a lot of what I used to believe in),it has mostly brought me joy and helped me truly experience the wonders of God and this world. The world is now a much more beautiful place than it ever was before.
