When Neale Donald Walsch was experiencing a low point in his life, he decided to write a letter to God. What he did not expect was a response and the result was Conversations with God Book 1. In Book 2, the dialogue expands to deal with the more global topics of geopolitical and metaphysical life on the planet, and the challenges now facing the world. This incredible serie ...more

Recommends it for: the truly open-minded
It doesn't matter whether you truly think the author conversed with God or whether he made the whole thing up (who's to say?), the spiritual insights into the everyday and commentary of what we have turned religion into are worth the read.
Whether you believe what happened to Neale Donald Walsche or not, it is a fascinating read and puts a new, refreshing view on spirituality.

I can see how devoted Christians could find this book offensive as there are a few times quoted that 'following religion makes you good at obeying, not any closer to God', people might find this hard to swallow considering you have 'rules/commandments' to follow as Christians and also that there are no bad apples, just people who have different views of the world. After studying sociology the messages in this match a lot of what I learned at university. I love how the series gets more in depth w ...more

These books (Conversations With God 1, 2, 3) are the books that got me into spirituality, and that was the doorway to becoming me! I was fascinated by this series and felt a connection I had never felt to anything or anyone before. As a teenager who was at the time, looking for something to connect to this series of books really helped me!

This book was excellent. It teaches you to embrace everything good in the world.

The first book in the series focused on individual consciousness, the second global consciousness. The book brings up very good points. Neale and God go back and forth discussing all of our global crisis. which really makes for an interesting read. I promise you, you won't be bored. A New World order is mentioned, as well as the poor, the hungry, and the homeless. They dive into deep issues concer
Book 2 picks up from book 1. This series of book (1,2,&3)will definitely shift your perspective on God...unless it don't :-)

There's something about this book that really resonates with me. It's quantum physics, new age spirituality, philosophical jabber all in one. You have ti have a certain level of understanding, a feeling I would say to appreciate the genius that is this book. Walsch himself is a skeptic, he questions himself and God throughout the book. This book talks about religion, sexuality, spirituality, politics, world hunger, war, heaven. hell, theology, Hitler, corruption. There is no subjects that is off ...more

This trilogy of books was pivotal for understanding that the universe really is non-judgemental. Meaning that you truly can "Ask And You Shall Receive".

i dont know weather Neale Donald Walsch was actually conversing with God, or just talking to himself. To me it doesn't matter because the insights he reveals are truly amazing!

One of the best books ive read!
This book was required reading for a class, which I am very disappointed about because the topic has nothing to do with the college class i am taking and more to do with the fact that my teacher is a vaguely offensive new age wackjob. This book is about some crazy person who thinks he can talk to god. Other people seem to hate this book because they are christian and don't believe this guys narrative of god's personality, I just hate it cuz it's crazy.

According to Mr. Walsch, we can (and frequen
The book denies there is a devil, and I have been shown that there is such a thing. Therefore I strongly doubt this book is in any way what God would want to say to us. I see it more as an effort to make people forget that there is good and bad, and that you should choose where you stand. It is a way of telling people that everything is allowed as long as you think it's ok.
I can't conceive a book that is supposed to be God's w
If the author really believed he was talking to God why would he haggle over every little thing? This author has been caught in lies, do a search. I was really turned off when, in his second book, he told us that George H Bush was a great humanitarian. How can one converse with all that is and not be in awe?

We all talk with God, but Mr. Walsh, talks and gets a response. Deep but at the same time entertaining, it is a page turner.
It also makes you aware of the mistakes we make about God.
Different form of prayer, more direct, more humane and more realistic.
Great book, that I strongly recommend.
Good, but I have put it on the shelf for now as I wasn't ready to continue with reading about politics. Will get back to that part when it's time for me. Still a great book.

Ce second volume de "Conversations..." m'a moins remué et fait réfléchir que le premier, mais il a quand même retenu mon attention longuement (je l'ai dévoré aussi rapidement que le tome I) et a nouri certaines pensées. Il est centré sur des questions plus générales, sur des sujets qui impliquent l'ensemble de la société et moins l'individu. Le public visé est très nettement américain, cela se remarque notamment à travers une certaine lutte contre un puritanisme ambiant, qui s'étend sur de nombr ...more

Fascinating and thought-provoking!

The conversation that was started in Book 1 between Neale Donald Walsch (an ordinary man with a lot of common problems) and God carries on here and continues to fascinate. There are intriguing discussions about organised religions, the nature of time, Einstein's theory of relativity (but a non-scientist like me can follow what's being said!), sex, education, government and politics, the economy and war. Two things are emphasised - we should cease to think of our

The second book continues in much the same fashion as book 1. In this book, there are many good ideas, such as a global government - one government for the whole world. This would be similar to the government of the United States. (States coming together and uniting, instead though it would be countries coming together). If we have one government, we would not have to arm ourselves with weapons and spend money on wars. That money could then be used for the greater good.

It took me a long time to complete this book as sometimes I had to put it down to think clearly and failed to pick it up sooner than I should. Finally, I finished and also went back for the underlined and highlighted paragraphs. It was good to read these spiritual ideas and be uplifted. This book, like the previous first beek, shall always be beside my bed!

The principle of the book follows the first “Conversation with God” book and has the same concept as “the Secret” and “the Law of Attraction”
Great read. Gives a view that is almost insane. I decided to read the entire series because it was views that I've never considered. In conclusion, if you are a God fearing Christian, stick to the Bible and don't read. If you enjoy theory, read it.
Devon Pelto
This book offers amazing perspectives and questions on life and humanity. It's just as good as book 1, but on global matter instead of personal. The examples of enlightened societies makes me want to start building community now! Who's in?!
This book opened my life to new possibilities and the fact that we are love. Highly recommend. In fact, i try to use a lot of this in my daily life and really feel that this book could change the world.

این کتاب رو وقتی راهنمایی بودم خوندم و خیلی ناگهانی دیدمش الان. زیاد یادم نیست از کتاب ولی تاجایی که یادمه برای یه دختر تو سن بلوغ که دچار ناآرامی های اعتقادی هستش خیلی خوبه!

Having read CwG, there are so many questions that I have and this has led me to reading another book, where Neale answers Questions on CwG.
One thing for sure that struck me was really how true his depiction of human beings is, especially on the aspect or religion. Religion has rules and there are punishments for the person who breaks these rules, but I also realized that I am looking for an experience an inner peace or understanding if I may say so of my life on earth and my purpose and this boo
A man's conversations with himself. Some thoughtful ideas, but automatic writing...really, dude?
More powerful and thought provoking than the first. Love these books!
Tony Jarman
This book is life changing..its speaks to your soul, and from the dephts of your soul you know that you are now having a conversation with God.
As an eclectic spiritual philosopher, I found this book intriguing. With all the questions I'd ever posed to God myself, I found the answers within this book. Whether you agree with the answers presented or not, they are answers. Is it divinely inspired? That is for you to decide. I enjoyed it. I found myself having to reread a number of passages to understand what was being said not because I am ignorant but because the concepts were beyond my current standing/faith/belief. Opening my mind to o ...more
Not as good as the first. Seemed somewhat contrived.

Fascinating continuum for one of the best books.
