Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

A rewarding treatise on living a better and happier life, The Secret Things of God can be just as meaningful to secular viewers as it is for practicing Christians and Jews. Based on psychologist Henry Cloud's book The Secret Things of God: Unlocking the Treasures Reserved for You, this DVD finds the focused but comforting Cloud giving a seminar about the path to acquiring true happiness, getting the most out of relationships, utilizing talents and skills to the maximum, and enhancing one's spiritual life. Cloud's approach begins where, he says, many people think their search should end: by being more open to God's plan for each individual. Seek God, Cloud says, and He shows up, though usually not in the way one expects or hopes. Often, he says, God answers prayers with silence or greater darkness or more woe, so that people more fully appreciate their ability to advance their destinies once solutions finally begin to come together. One can't have Easter, says a clergyman (one of several commentators in this production, including popular psychiatrist Dr. Drew Pinsky), without going through the sufferings of Good Friday. Elsewhere, Cloud applies that same wisdom about experience-based growth to issues of trust (which comes when one is vulnerable and open to love); happiness (there is no such thing as being happy and disconnected from others); relationships (good ones come from having the skills to produce them, e.g., learning to listen and validate before doing anything else); and finding God (a good life does not depend on good circumstances; it's one's relationship to others and God that is under one's control). --Tom Keogh

5.0 out of 5 stars Look past surface flaws to reveal the underlying gem March 29, 2008
By BBG
Format:DVD
I enjoyed Rhonda Byrne's "The Secret," and have found its principles exciting and applicable in my life. But, my more common experience of "manifesting" has been through ... God, introduced in my case through the Christian perspective.*

I rented "The Secret Things of God" ("TSTOG") because I was curious to see a Christian take on "The Secret." I confess that often I am made uncomfortable by most Christian media, because it can be so heavy-handed and saccharine. But I trust Henry Cloud because of his excellent and sensible "Boundaries" books, written from the perspective of a psychologist who believes in God.

Initially, I was put off by the first minutes of the DVD, in particular because of some cheesy production values. I felt a little embarrassed to be watching this in front of my teenaged son, because he'd also loved "The Secret" -- and this looks nothing like that slick flick. Oh dear, the music, the disconnected-looking expressions on the faces of the agreeably nodding audience, the moving mist in the scenic background - eck! But then I listened, really listened to what he was saying - and was deeply affected. Deeply. Surprisingly, so was my reflexively-skeptical 14-y.o. son.

Like another reviewer, at first I also thought Dr. Cloud was putting down "The Secret," and so felt some resistance to opening up to his perspective. However, when I really listened, I heard him supporting the essential messages of "The Secret" - and yet adding so much more valuable information, not just from another, but from a broader, perspective. As examples, in TSTOG Dr.

When I saw The Secret, sometime ago, I feel something was missing. In that film they say, among other things, that you wake up every morning and say "Thanks, thanks for this new day"... but thanks whom? Supposedly we thanks to a great positive power around the world. It looks like we are living in the Star War movie with "the force". That the idea of the New Era movement: take us away from God.
"The secret things of God" give us the real answer and the real force behind everything: God. This movie brings us to remember what a lot of people have forgotten and how find our own correct way to success. Because there is not other way and any intention to show us another one, I don't think is a good intention at all.
I recommend this DVD to any people who really care to grow up in any way, especially if you feel you are finished, God don't want you down, He gave us the key to open the door of triumph. The only thing you have to do is take it, thru God.

4.0 out of 5 stars A secret worth discovering June 24, 2008
Format:DVD
Dr. Cloud in this DVD talks about 4 important secrets that God intends for us to discover in order to have a balance, healthy and productive life and these 4 secrets our Love, Relationship, Our purpose, and spiritual connection with him. The insights provided by others were very powerful. I strongly recommend both the DVD and the book for everyone who is interested in discovering and unlocking God's treasure for themselves.

5.0 out of 5 stars Discover All of the Things The Secret is Missing April 29, 2009
Format:DVD
If you are a Christian, and you have seen the Secret, you may feel like I did: there's something missing. It also didn't help that Rhonda Byrne made it sound like some big conspiracy had been hatched to keep all of us from knowing the truth?

After all, what Byrne teaches is from the Science of Getting Rich by Wallace Wattles, a book I might add that outlines the process from start to finish, including the fact that God is involved. It's nothing like the Secret where all you have to do is think your way to success. No action required.

Regardless, after reading The Secret, I have to say that I was severely disappointed. It took longer to watch the movie than it did to read the book, and there really wasn't any difference between the two. Even worse, it was a lot of metaphysical garbage. I've learned that without God in the process, The Secret may work, but it certainly won't lead to the level of happiness, joy, and peace we achieve in following Jesus Christ.

That's why this movie is so vitally important. It goes beyond The Secret to reveal what the Bible has to say about how we are to really live our lives. Too many today get Christianity wrong and because of it, they lose out on the life God really wants them to have.

For me it was understanding how to operate within God's laws and live the life I want. What we sometimes don't understand is that the life we really want is the life that God really wants to give us. God made each of us for a purpose. When we avoid living that purpose, we often fail to reach our full potential.

One thing I liked about this movie that the Secret just completely failed to cover is the information on relationships.

The Secret originally comes from the Science of Getting Rich by Wallace Watttles.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Secret things of God September 7, 2008
Format:DVD
It's a knock off of the original Secret, and has an argument for every topic. It's a great message and explains alot, But didn't disclose full Bible verses, you can tell they didn't work on the same budget the original video did.
I would recommend it for those who are searching for some answers.
It made a lot more sense to me than the original.
