This certainly is a wacky book and it has in it issues with which I resonate and others with which I do not. The idea of a conversation with God has been done before, but this God is anthropomorphized to a much greater degree, using modern language and colloquialisms that make him, to me, completely unbelievable. I should say I have never read Neale Donald Walsch. In fact, I found God as depicted here really irritating. Others might read this, however, and find it helps them to think more clearly about their behaviour and the codes by which they live their lives, if they have any codes that is.
At times the author is obviously consciously speaking ‘tongue-in-cheek’; at other times I feel he doesn’t realize he’s doing it and those times are more illuminating. The author is pointing up some of the ludicrous and harmful things we do – without thought or care – and there are many of us who engage in this behaviour for so much of the time. So in this respect the book is useful if it makes us think about these things..
The idea that God pulls the strings to make everything happen is a cop-out and, of course, one that so many people buy into to release them from responsibility for anything they do that is harmful, insulting or negative in any way.
But the final points in the book are the only real nuggets I took from it – about the way we treat the planet. These, and many other things, are what we should really be thinking about and, more importantly, acting on. If you take nothing else from this book, this will make it worth reading. It’s a question really of whether you can wade through the rest of it, with that irritating God, in order to reach that point!
This is not a book for those who are already on their spiritual path; it is too elementary and simplistic but it could help those who haven’t yet set out because it is written at a level that they might take a lot from without even realizing it.
