Publisher's Summary

Suppose you could ask God the most puzzling questions about existence, and God would provide clear, understandable answers? It happened to Neale Donald Walsch.

Conversations with God is Neale Donald Walsch's account of his direct conversations with God, beginning in 1992 while Walsch was immersed in a period of deep depression. He composed a letter to God in which he vented his frustrations, and much to his surprise, even shock, God answered him.

Focusing on the universal truths that influence all life, Conversations with God offers a picture of the could be better. Conversations with God challenges us to push past the imagined boundaries of what we believe ourselves capable and look instead to all that we can attain as co-creators with God.

What the Critics Say

"Conversations with God contains a wisdom I believe we all have inside us but don't stop to listen to. Neale Walsch stopped, listened, and transcribed that word." (Dr. Bernie Siegel, author of Love, Medicine, and Miracles)

    "Amazing!"

    This is one of those books that was recommended to me years ago and it was always in the back of my mind to read but never quite got there...until now! This book is amazing, it will make you question everything you were raised to believe about life, God, the world and universe that surrounds you! It really is fantastic. So uplifting to realise that maybe when bad things happen God is not out to get you and there is always a way to make it better. I have continued on to devour the rest of the series and I highly recommend this title to everyone! There is not one person in this world that could not learn a thing or two from this book. Also the narrators are great, the author narrates his own part and there is a male and female God which are both perfect. I loved it and I will listen to it again and again.

    "Re-define your experience"

    The sense, integrity and truth emanates from every page. Book 1, as with the other two books, is a book that speaks, promotes and endorses unconditional love in a world full of human made conditions. For many years I was a child of a lesser god, but after reading the conversations trilogy, I have been able to dispel the outdated prejudices, bigotry and hatred (the fears) of ancient rhetoric from my life. I find it hard to express how much happier, content and fulfilled I feel since I have adopted the teaching from these books. They have answered all my questions about life and the universe and our relationship to everything including our purpose for existing. My vision about everything has changed dramatically for the better.
    Some people may disbelieve that these books are a true conversation with God. But even if they are only the religious concepts and philosophical thoughts of a human mind expressed on paper, then they are wonderful thoughts with as much backbone as you could wish to experience.
    I do recommend that you start with book 1 and listen your way through them objectively. When I first listened to them I felt overwhelmed. It?s not easy to let go of the negative religious indoctrinations that have been brainwashed into us over the decades of our life. In fact, letting go of some parts has been painful, but if you are yearning for a spiritual awakening, then you need look no further.

    Story
    "Very interesting and enlightening"
    What made the experience of listening to Conversations with God: An Uncommon Dialogue, Book 1 the most enjoyable?

    The narrative of how this book came about, the inner scepticism which was overcome and the common sense to how God and the universe works made this most enjoyeable.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It's realness.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    In order take on board all the ideas in this book I needed to split the listening into chapters and relisten to some of them.


    Any additional comments?

    Go for this book and don't bother about Vol. 2 it's basically the same as this book but shorter.

    Story
    "All Change"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, this book was recommended to me about 9 months ago but looking back I was not ready for it then. Prepare to change your 'mind' on whatever you currently conceive God to be...


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Conversations with God: An Uncommon Dialogue, Book 1?

    The first page onward


    Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favourite?

    All characters were performed well but the fact that Neal narrated as himself made it more personal.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Yes, it changed my belief system and removed a lot of negative thought patterns.


    Any additional comments?

    I would recommend this book to anyone who has ever considered 'what am I missing'

    "Finally!!"

    I could absolutely relate to the author and his conversation with God. He was asking questions that I've had for years. What surprised me was the answers God was providing. And the reason it surprised me, was because I understood what God was trying to say, and I resonated with the answers whole heartedly.
    I enjoyed that the voice of God flipped between male and female, which (to me) confirmed his belief that God envelopes both male and female aspects. And that God shouldn't be classified as male or female, but that God envelopes ALL that is and isn't.
    So before listening to the audiobook, be open minded. Some of the answers may make you uncomfortable, but if you listen to the explanations, hopefully it will all make sense.

    "Conversations with God Book 1 (Unabridged)"

    I have read all of the Conversations with God books and now enjoy listening to them. It is a very special way of going through a book and I find there are things that I missed when I first read it. I think this is the type of book that will always bring new insights.

    Story
    "Bliss and Ecstacy with Deep STimulation"
    If you could sum up Conversations with God, Book 1 in three words, what would they be?

    The confirmation you've been waiting for! When someone else states something you have always known to be true... and many others of reputation and authority also agree ... courage to be confident in what you know for yourself is easier and easier. The entire trilogy is stunningly provocative, enlightening, fun, and validating in every way. THE AUDIO VERSIONS ARE EASIER TO DIGEST THAN THE READING OF THE BOOKS.


    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    The narrators really sound as if they are who they are playing in the reading ... both god voices are confident yet simple and non-authoritative in traditional "god like" tones. All three narrators are excellent ...


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It thrills me.


    Any additional comments?

    I am listening to book 1 for the 3rd time; have listened to book 2 3 times and book 3 is in progress as a study group for the 5th time. One should not take these books as the be all and end all. This is Neal Donald Walsh's understanding. It seems to strike notes with everyone and we are all being triggered to understand the Voice of Truth within us. Don't worry about the messenger ... Neal is a human just like us - nothing special ... and that is one of the major Truths in the dialog, in all esoteric teachings through time. Listen to the message - not the messenger. Then follow your understanding; your inner voice. The same voice that Donald (and Jesus and Krishna and Buddha and Babaji and Joseph) heard is in you too! Listen. LIsten to these books many times and think about them. Journal about your reactions and feelings about the content. Listen again and again and allow your grip on your programmed perspective to loosen so your actual perspective and ability to be conscious of it can grow, change, fall away, be enhanced, be replaced, be strengthened.

    Story
    "A life-changing book"
    What made the experience of listening to Conversations with God, Book 1 the most enjoyable?

    The overall message, the depth in which issues were tackled, and the performances by all involved got the book across in a way that conventional reading may not have, as I'm a slow reader in this way.


    What did you like best about this story?

    ti tackled universal themes in a way that resonated with me, even challenged me at times.


    Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Not until this book, and I listened to the other "books" in the series. This one was the gateway drug, as it were, to my immersing into the others.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    A new way to go home.


    Any additional comments?

    If you're like me, this book will resonate in a way that feeds on the things that I knew instinctively, yet never knew how to put into words until now. Be open to surprise, especially if reading with lifelong religious and spiritual beliefs that may run counter to what's being said. It's brought clarity to my world.

    If you could sum up Conversations with God, Book 1 in three words, what would they be?

    Much needed guidance.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Conversations with God, Book 1?

    When the author explains that you will lack something by asking for it, because by asking for something you are actually acknowledging that you don't have it.


    What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Tone.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Initially, I found the voice of God so stereotypical that I wanted to laugh. When I listened some more I found the narrators voices deep and rich.

    What did you like best about this story?

    As someone who grew up going to church most weekends, yet currently consider myself agnostic, this book described a God unlike any description I have heard before. While a bit unusual, I find the possibility of such a God to be more logical, believable, and understandable than the description I have heard in the standard christian churches today. From a philosophical perspective, this book proposed ideas and a mindset which promotes greater happiness in my life. I am glad I listened to it, however I think the lengthy interviews added to the end of the audiobook were a waste of time.

    Any additional comments?

    Listened to with an open mind, this audio is almost certain to provide some pretty significant insights for introspection. One need not even accept that the conversation is actually with God in order to receive gems of wisdom which can be useful both practically and spiritually for improving self. Parts may be hard to listen to and accept if the listener is more sectarian. I found the content and performance to be excellent, though there were times if my attention wandered, even the slightest, I'd need a rewind to grasp some of the more esoteric discussion.
