Perhaps it was my mistake by buying the book without realising that it is based on the Course in Miracles, but this was not stated in the description and I had not heard of the author before.
I had a few recommendations for this book, but had to put it down after a couple of chapters after becoming uneasy with what I was reading. This book is an extensive exercise in positive thinking, however, sadly not in any kind of critical thinking.
Although it contains many heartwarming and uplifting messages, it appears to be based on wishy washy concepts and flimsy theology, the source of which is unclear. For instance, we are told we are dealing with a 'spirit' who may or may not be Jesus (which is it?). Ironically it is the love of truth that warns me against this book.
I am fairly open-minded and I have read books of a similar vein before, but this one doesn't convince me. Sorry!
