Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Like Walsch's earlier bestsellers, this New Age volume purports to be a record of a conversation with, and revelation from, God. The overarching argument is simple, indeed a bit tautological: humanity has reached a turning point. As evidenced by September 11, something about our world isn't working. We do not, however, need to tinker with our economics or politics; rather, we need to retool our beliefs about those systems that govern society. This is key, Walsch insists, because "beliefs create behaviors." Fond of numbered lists, Walsch gives us "Five Steps to Peace," which include our admitting that there is something we don't understand about "God and... Life, the understanding of which could change everything." Walsch also offers Nine New Revelations, some of which don't seem all that new, including the idea that God has always communicated directly with people, or that God would never punish us with eternal damnation. The Steps to Peace and the New Revelations all point toward the peaceful, humane spirituality that Walsch wants readers to cultivate, a spirituality that focuses not on morals but on "functionality." Because Walsch is ecumenical, drawing on Robert Schuller, Harold Kushner, the Bhagavad Gita and Shakespeare, seekers from many spiritual backgrounds will find his book inviting, and the dialogue format makes for easy reading. For those who are interested in a spiritual approach to global upheaval, these "New Revelations" will prove inspiring and companionable.

From Library Journal

Best-selling inspirational writer Walsch has another "conversation with God," this time focusing on the aggression and dogma that plague the world. Addressing events such as Matthew Shepard's death, the deaths of 15 girls in Saudi Arabia who were forced to stay in a burning school because of "incorrect" dress, and the terrorist events of September 11, 2001, Walsch guides individuals to take an active role in changing the world by changing their beliefs. The text contains four lists, including "Five Steps to Peace" and "Nine New Revelations," which encourage readers to treat the cause of world problems instead of bandaging the symptoms. Walsch does not advocate replacing beliefs, such as those rooted in the Bible, Qu'ran, or Bhagavad-Gita but instead suggests that we become aware of how those beliefs can lead to dysfunctional behaviors. In advocating a change in current religious mindsets, Walsch will be considered blasphemous by some readers, but his ideas make practical sense and allow for an alternative take on creating world harmony. In-person workshops and online courses are offered at www.conversationswithgod.org. Libraries should expect heavy interest in this latest conversation from Walsch.

I loved Conversations with God books 1, 2, and 3. I have done a ton of reading and I've never found such a broad, advanced, and relatively accessible cosmology. Neale's last book, Communion with God, is a philosophical masterpiece that explains our confused world at its deepest levels. I've read a lot of philosophy, metaphysics and theological books. The Conversation with God books contain some of the purest truths you can find anywhere and this new book is every bit as good as the others.
In The New Revelations, Neale and God continue to deliver amazingly valuable insights. This book is the most practical and the most challenging of the Conversatons with God series. It asks us to act, to become spiritual activists, to help change the world, and potentially to save it.
God says that the difficulties we are experiencing with our world right now are not simply political, or religious. Our fundamental beliefs are out of wack. God is diligently non-judgemental here and asks us to drop the concept of right and wrong. Righteousness is part of the problem. God asks us to look at things pragmatically. Instead of my beliefs being right, and your's being wrong, God suggests that we simply look at the results we're getting compared to the results we want.
I just returned from a weekend seminar with Neale at the Omega Institute in NY state which centered on the messages in this book. Neale asked us to become Spiritual Activists, to help others to examine their beliefs. He wants you to post the 9 New Revelations and the 5 Steps to Peace everywhere, like a modern day Martin Luther - challenge the status quo.
There is no question, this is DEFINITELY great stuff. If we all do as it suggests, it WILL change the world for the better.

In his book Freedom from the Known, Krishnamurti writes, "For centuries we have been spoon-fed by our teachers, by our authorities, by our books, our saints. We say, 'Tell me all about it-what lies beyond the hills and the mountains and the earth?' and we are satisfied with their descriptions, which means that we live on words and our life is shallow and empty. We are second-hand people." One of the things I think is so wonderful about this book is that it offers a place to start while still emphasizing and offering a way to discover the truth for ourselves; it is a signpost to truth. Do not overlook this, especially if you have read other CWG books and find yourself saying, "I have heard all this 'God is communicating with everyone all the time' stuff before." This book repeats a lot of the material presented in earlier CWG books, and although some points are simply reiterated, plain and simple, others are made more accessible, and the last few chapters really get good. The explanation of how to receive God's communication was presented in such a way that I was able to get closer to God than I had been before.
If you realize that humanity is facing a crisis right now, the way I see it you have two options: you can say you "want" to do something about it but don't have the power, because you can't control everyone else, or you can claim the power to change the world as your own. You can choose not to take responsibility for the environmental destruction and warfare on our planet, or you can see the plight of the world as your own, and act on the enormous opportunity there is right now to change the entire course of history by becoming the "first domino" in your circle of influence. Yet do not do it because you are afraid of death (life never ends) but because you love life.

Several years and several best-selling books after their first conversation, God and Neale Donald Walsch are still at it. And I for one still benefit hugely from the SANITY AND CLARITY of this writing, especially after September 11th.
After so many books in the Conversations With God series, thoughts of "re-hash for a bit more money in the bank" almost inevitably cross one's mind, but this is inappropriate and unnecessarily cynical. Yes the message is always basically the same, but as I am a big big fan of all the books I am completely biased in their favour!
In The New Revelations the dialogue with God revolves around the crisis of humanity on Earth today, with the underlying main theme being that a spiritual crisis is the fundamental cause of our individual and collective problems. God and Neale suggest that our deepest beliefs must be changed before our behaviour can change. Organized religion takes a bit of a hammering here, although as always in the CWG books there is an embracing of the best of traditional religion while suggesting some fundamental shifts that need to be made if humanity is to survive and prosper.
Virtually all the Big Religious Books (Bible, Qur'an etc.) are quoted to demonstrate how man has created God in his own image, a creation which is then used to justify condemning or killing others who hold different beliefs to one's own.

I have all of Neale's books and Books 1, 2 and 3 have transformed me spiritually. Actually, his books have validated truths I knew inside myself about spirituality and opened my mind to many new insights. I like to re-listen to books 1-3 on audiotape once or twice a year to refresh myself with them.
My only complaint with this book is that there is very little new "stuff" in it - everything is a repeat from his earlier books, which in and of itself isn't so bad, but what bothers me with this book is that Neale "plays dumb" with God and acts like these are all new concepts when in fact, he's already discussed these subjects at length in the previous books. So it doesn't have that "genuine" feel that the previous books have and it feels a little fake. Not to say that the points he is making are not incredibly important - I just don't really like the fact that he is playing like it's all new information to him.
But for people who have not already read the earlier volumes, this book will not be a disappointment.
