Review:

Though the title might suggest to one that here is another New Age Alternative Religion book, this is actually a manual and workbook for developing a highly creative type of Christian personality, albeit one featuring elements I'd never have thought anyone would attempt to square with that religion's doctrinal base, had I not seen it for myself within these pages. Like the book New Thought for a New Millennium (reviewed elsewhere in this issue) the text presents, in a remarkably straightforward style, an extremely Humanistic approach to Christianity.As with all self-help books, this one is full of advice on how to take better charge of your life; but in this case the emphasis is truly on the "self" aspect. Rarely will one come across works of this nature that place the responsibility for any improvements one might make in oneself more solidly on the shoulders of the seeker themselves. The author states openly that he doesn't care how many mistakes you may make along the way, just so long as you persist in your intent.The Christian perspective offered in these pages is as far to the Left of Center as you can get. Yet the book also manages to toe the conservative line nicely with its emphasis upon Strength Through Surrender, a conscious giving over of personal will to the direction of Divine Will. Nowhere else have I seen a more Zen-like bunch of exercises for self-development (open, spontaneous writing, passive observation of the present moment, and meditation) set within a Western framework before. Given the impressive listing of books the man has to his credit, this kind of discipline can clearly wring a lot of potential out of those who have a combination of narrowly focused belief and a broad education, but overall the basic conflicts of the Eastern and Western approaches to God are likely to overwhelm those of his readership who have some knowledge of both systems, rendering it nearly impossible for them to carry out the 15-day developmental series of exercises offered as the last third of the work. It's as true of Theology as anything else: It's mighty difficult to have your cake and eat it too. -- From Independent Publisher
