A Christian Book Alternative to Tolle's 'A New Earth' Apr 19, 2008
Copied from the Christian Newswire: (Canfield, OH April 14, 2008) Pews are abuzz with concerned believers who want to know if there is a Christian book alternative to Eckhart Tolle's `A New Earth.' Kimberly Lisowski and Andrea Pouliot, co-authors of the newly released Christian non-fiction book, `The Apple You Were Fed,' would say yes.
Arguably, there is a need for the depth of spirituality and personal insights Tolle brings when nearly 80% of young people walk away from the Christian faith, and over 50% of Christian marriages end in divorce. `The Apple You Were Fed' bridges this gap by offering the same spiritual awareness but from a Christian perspective.
A spiritual tutorial, which Tolle does well, can often lead to more questions about living out the concepts in a practical world of everyday problems and life issues. While Tolle teaches, Lisowski and Pouliot uniquely share from two voices: a legalistic, stay-at-home, Christian, and a working, liberal-minded agnostic. As readers eavesdrop on two relatable women who show the gritty process to spiritual freedom as it unfolds rather than communicating their findings as do teachers, questions arising about how to live in a broken world are answered. Their lives are fair game: past secrets, parenting mishaps, stressed marriages, struggling faith... they show all of it. By discipling readers through their trials of everyday life, Lisowski and Pouliot push past intellectual barriers, and force honest dialogue about deeper personal matters allowing readers to follow their path to enlightenment- Jesus style.
"People are asking, `How do I stop the destructive patterns in my life?' or `Why do I have it all, yet struggle with feeling unfulfilled?'" Lisowski states. By showing rather than telling, `The Apple You Were Fed' offers perspective to those answers. Pouliot confirms, "Our hope is to share that this Truth can be found in regular lives, without having to study for years in a monastery or travel the globe. It is possible to get `it' right at your kitchen table with a good friend."
Undoubtedly, `The Apple You Were Fed' will be the first to fill the void `A New Earth' has created in the Christian book world. For Tolle readers who are left in need of an anchor for the spirituality that he teaches, `The Apple You Were Fed' will share how Jesus' message of love had this "Truth" all along, and offer the addition of an inspiring yet practical view of how to live out this life-changing spirituality.

...and One Book for All Feb 15, 2008
I received a copy of this book from my friend. Several of my family members are passing it around. My grandmother loved it, and she's a pretty conservative Catholic woman. My mom is way into it, and she is a more of a contemporary thinker being an inner-city schoolteacher. It's funny because when they discuss it, it's clear that they both had totally different experiences from each other, which were different from the perspective I gained. My reading is pretty well laid out for me, as I am studying for my doctorate in physical therapy; however, I found this book enlightening and completely different from what I've read my whole life. I am confident anyone who reads it will too.
True Friendship Feb 15, 2008
This truly is a book everyone should read. Girlfriends, pass it out to everyone you know. Kim and Andrea let us into their lives. Lives that we know as our own. We all have either a little Kim or Andrea in us. This is a journey created by two women who made the commitment of a true friendship, one of honesty, curiousity, and debate. The puzzle seems to be dumped out on the table and slowly and carefully put together before us. They travel down paths of personal growth together. It is amazing how these two opposites came together in the middle; not to apease one another but because the middle was where the truth could be found. Isn't that a lesson we could all learn? The dialogue is real, comfortable. I felt as if I was there having my 1-Equal & cream, cup of coffee right along with them.

This book is fantastic. I felt like I was sitting down for coffee and having a discusion with Kimberly and Andrea. The book is very insightful and thought provoking. I don't belive that fate brought these two women together, but I believe that Diving Intervention did. These women compliment each other in the beliefs as well as their writing skills. The book made me realize that as a parent you really do not know what your child is thinking and how innocent statements made out of love can actually make your child feel inadequate and unloved. My hope as a parent for other parents who read this book is that you step back and take a hard look at yourself and think about how what you say or do as a parent can impact your child for years and years in a negative way as well as a positive way. I would recommend this book to anyone who feels that they are not worthy and feel lacking in any aspect of their lives. How many parents really know if their child is a gauzer, ladder climber or cutout or if they are any of the above as well. THIS IS A MUST READ BOOK!!!. This book sheds light on how we behave in our daily lives, and possibly as to why we act the way we do. Thank you Kimberly and Andrea for sharing your most personal details of your lives.

When this book was recommended to me I ordered it as soon as it became available. There are few books that I have read that leave a lasting impression on me. This book truly touched my soul. My one word for this book is "profound". I had mixed emotions reading this book. It made me think about my life and how I gained insight on how I can use the "apple concept" into my everyday life. Thank you Kimberly and Andrea for giving me the self reflection I have been seeking.
