Reviews - What do customers think about Oprah Miracles And The New Earth?
THIS BOOK IS RIDICULOUS!! Jan 15, 2010
I'm outraged by this book and it's reviewer's... What give's you the right so say what's in Oprah's heart? You don't know her and yet your speaking as though you do.Oprah has done more for this world then you care to admit. This sounds to me like flat out Racisim and Christian brainwashing. Oprah is a great, great woman who deserves better than this. I do not recommend this book unless you really hate Oprah and her beliefs as this book shows. My Humble Opinion...
Old lies repackaged, exposed Nov 27, 2009
I'm embarrassed to say that I would consider myself a very grounded Christian, but fell for the experiential platitudes of Tolle. I should have caught the same old, tired philosophies of Tolle repackaged in a delightful way. But in the end, I'm once more acutely aware of the real truth. Jesus said in John 14, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life: no one comes to the Father but through Me." Lutzer pegs the mark without flinching. He provides clarity and defensible arguments that are not only convincing, but also useful for addreessing people stumbling toward old, dead ideas that are repackaged nicely. But non truths will never lead to the real love relationship and grace without works that the Jesus of the New Testament offers.
How Oprah defines God, Jesus and the afterlife? Sep 14, 2009
I have read and review several books written by Erwin Lutzer. Many books I have given five stars to. This book is an interesting work, but I expect more from this author. I agree with the thoughts on Oprah, her philosophy, and her agenda. To call herself a kind of Christian and has thoughts about Jesus independent of what is described in the Bible. Oprah Winfry denies what is taught in the Bible and chooses her own theology. In other works has Lutzer dealt with Pantheism, Universalism, Relativism, and the teaching of another Jesus. This book is about the most popular talk show incorporates these concepts in own Spiritualism. Lutzer takes a critical look how this effects her book recommendations and her radio station. The indictment of these things is competent. How it affects her talk show, her interviews, and world perspective is not as clear. How watching her show can corrupt the Christian mind is not specifically dealt with. Yes readings this book realizes her nontraditional ideas of Jesus, God the Father, sin, heaven and hell. I just think Lutzer could have spent another hundred pages of research and writing time making it clearer to the reader.

excellent critique Sep 12, 2009
Erwin Lutzer as always boldly confronts deceiving philosophies that contradict the Christian Bible. He identifies Oprah's misleading beliefs that she exposes to millions of her viewers and then provides the correct worldview with plenty of support. Whether you follow Oprah's influence or not, this is a must read for people in the 21st century!
Excellent contrast of two DIFFERENT belief systems Aug 31, 2009
This book demonstrates the incompatibility of the New Age spirituality being pushed by Oprah Winfrey and Biblical Christianity. While Oprah still claims to be a Christian with an "open mind", the spiritual teachings she preaches and authors she recommends offer ideas that contradict those of Jesus Christ. Having an open mind is one thing, but claiming to follow two incompatible belief systems is either confusion or deception. If she wishes to follow New Age teachings that is her choice, but don't try to re-write Jesus' teachings to say something that they do not. This book is highly recommended for Oprah's viewers or any who are considering New Age thought.
