The result is both inspiring and richly enjoyable.” (Harvey Cox, author of The Future of Faith)

It is very difficult to read and I find I cannot stay focused on it. Perhaps I am not spiratually intelligent enough for the content of this book. The explanations are very intense and complicated and hard to follow for the average person. I may have to try to read it at another time.
A wonderfully crafted revelation worthy to be called a landmark of our time
In the fullest sense a perennial story of the eternal quest told by the master storyteller-scientist-sage
Our lovely Deepak Chopra
So wise at weaving physics and medicine with insight and meaning here Deepak returns with timeless stories of
the personal experience of God as expanded or limited by the mind of the experiencer or the society that it dwells in.
Books of this caliber deserve to be aside the classics of the science of the Soul, and God A revelation (as revealed)
in particular heralds an evolutionary leap.
the conscious co creative experience and integration of the spiritual experience transcends religion and civilization as the driving source of inspiration
and purpose and even more so as the human seeks to derive meaning from the challenges of the life of the senses and the demands of the world.
When Albert Einstein was asked by parents how to develop the intelligence of their children to equal that of Einstein he often replied "Tell them stories" And when asked hoe to "truly" educate them Einstein actually replied on many occasions "Have them write their own stories" Deepak Chopra proves again with his stories of lives of human beings who have responded to the challenges of Spirit in the body that the
creative living in its fullest embraces deep insight and conscious growth with practical life as well as transcendent transformation .
Equally comfortable with Medicine or Physics or Psychology, here Deepak returns again for the eternal story of the science
the Science of Spirit.
Bravo Deepak Chopra!
I would reframe the title of the book as an exclamation....GOD! What a revelation!.....
Wrong. This was aimed at the snake. Not Adam and Eve. And...didn't it occur to him not a lot of people crawl around on their bellies?
But on to his other mistakes. "The Old Testament is rife with disapproval of pleasure" (p 27) he grimly accuses, noting "God wants to be feared" (p 26) and - perhaps most damning of all - "Sex, like all temptations of the flesh, stands against the spirit" (p 81). These are all idiotic claims.
Chopra was educated by Jesuits, so it's very, very strange he's so breathtakingly ignorant of the bridal/love imagery in the Old Testament, and its implications:
Like a young man marrying a virgin,
so will the one who built you wed you,
and as the bridegroom rejoices in his bride,
so will your God rejoice in you. Isaiah 62
Or: For your Maker is your husband, Isaiah 54.
Chopra is so blind he believes the Song of Songs is only about physical sex (p 25) and has nothing to do with the the God who "wants to be feared".
Page after page, it's clear Chopra detests Judaism and Christianity. You can practically see the scowl on his face as he intones that the New Testament is "authoritarian, chauvinist, and puritanical" (p 81). Can anything be less au courant than being authoritarian, chauvinist, and puritanical?? Even the words send a shiver down your spine!Read more ›

WISH HE COULD WRITE MORE CLEARLY BUT I UNDERSTAND IT'S A COMPLEX SUBJECT.
STICK WITH IT AND YOU WILL LEARN MUCH.
His ideas, biases and theories were intertwined with facts. I found his subtle agenda disturbing. I will not read another book written by him.Published 20 days ago by Mojo
