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.

©1996 Neale Donald Walsch (P)2006, 2015 Audio Literature, Phoenix Books

Critic reviews

"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)

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'

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.

Interesting but a bit New-Ageish for me

Many interesting and valuable insights but also a great deal of rather meaningless New-Age babble. It's a mish-mash of esoteric and modern fashionable ideas about God. It tries to steer clear of old-fashioned dogma which is of course good but ends up creating new dogma. The more questions it answers the more questions it raises. I think I was hoping for something more. I feel a little disappointed as it didn't really teach me anything I haven't already thought about.

Life changing experience

What made the experience of listening to Conversations with God: An Uncommon Dialogue, Book 1 the most enjoyable?

The honesty of the presentation and the simple yet profound messages delivered in this book make it a heart warming and life changing experience. I have been searching for many years for answers to difficult and important questions, and this whole content blows me away !!

What did you like best about this story?

The fact it resonates with me so much on so many levels.

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

I was in the middle of reading this book and decided to get the audio book as it was more convenient to have with me in work. I have found however hearing the authors voice and emotion has brought this even more to life.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Its impossible to pin point as there are so many and these moments will differ with each person.

Any additional comments?

Thanks so much for making this available !!!

Simply Amazingly Beautiful.

I love this book. I was so happy to have the same questions in part. I don't know why or how I got to this particular book but it was exactly what I was looking for and I'm really looking forward to book 2. Take care. Bye
