Blasphemy! Heresy! Who does this man think he is, claiming to speak directly to God?! Jesus did it, Muhammad did it, the Jewish prophets did it, but none of their Gods had the sardonic wit or raw verve of Walsch's God. Neale Donald Walsch isn't claiming to be the Messiah of a new religion, just a frustrated man who sat down one day with pen in his hand and some tough questions in his heart.
As he wrote his questions to God, he realized that God was answering them… directly… through Walsch's pen. The result, far from the apocalyptic predictions or cultic eccentricities you might expect, turns out to be matter-fact, in-your-face wisdom on how to get by in life while remaining true to yourself and your spirituality.

This thoroughly researched book was written by T.W. Doane in 1882 although (except for things like “Part First” instead of “Part One”) you would hardly say so when you read it.
In this book the "word of god" is clearly presented as being a work of men, altered through time and influenced by […]
