Item description for A New Earth, An Old Deception: Awakening to the Dangers of Eckhart Tolle's #1 Bestseller by Richard Abanes...
Overview Award-winning journalist Richard Abanes responds to the confusing claims, New Age ideas, and misleading spirituality being put forth as "Truth" in the mega-bestseller A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle. A New Earth, An Old Deception is a must-read for thoughtful persons seeking more information about Tolle's claims, especially about scripture.
In an easy-to-use format, Abanes provides biblical responses to questions raised by Tolle's views, including: * Who or what is God--and is God separate from us? * Does Tolle accurately interpret the Bible? * Is everyone essentially "One" with all that exists? * Is evil real, or do we only perceive it as real? * Are all religions equally false/true and do they all teach a single core Truth?
Endorsements "Using compassionate arguments, inescapable logic, and a skillful presentation of biblical truth, Abanes has put together an insightful, fair-minded, and cogent refutation of Eckhart Tolle's teachings." --Hank Hanegraaff, president of the Christian Research Institute
"A New Earth, An Old Deception equips the believer with solid answers for those who may be confused by Tolle's claims." --Tom Stipe, Pastor, Crossroads Church of Denver
"Abanes offers an irenic, yet piercing, analysis of Eckhart Tolle, and in doing so, exposes another New Age guru." --H. Wayne House, Distinguished Research Professor of Biblical and Theological Studies, Faith Evangelical Seminary
"Abanes clearly shows the differences between the 'gospel' of self and the Gospel of Jesus Christ by dismantling popular New Age teachings point by point. . . . A much-needed Christian response to deception." --J. Mark Martin, Calvary Community Church

I feel sorry for the Church Dec 6, 2009
Wake up guys. Stop holding on to power just for the sake of it. There is much much more to life than that! One day you will realise. I'm all for Christianity but definitely not Churchianity. Thank you Eckhart for coming here to speak Truth.
Worthless Dec 3, 2009
The auther doesn't seem to have experienced even a glimpse of what Eckhart Tolle teaches. He simply doesn't know what he is arguing against. Fundamentalism is fundamentalism, wether Christian or otherwise, and to claim that Jesus (whom I adore a lot) is the only way to salvation will not bring anything but more conflict and misery.
I'm confused. Ekart never preached against Christianity Nov 24, 2009
My husband accidentally purchased this book thinking it was Tolle's New Earth. Before I got to returned it I might as well read it, right? I'm a Christian by faith and I never found Tolle's works contradictory to the teachings of Christianity, in fact I could say that many of the principles Tolle teaches helped me greatly in my relationship with Christ. So I'm confused why the author of this book feels so compelled to think that the 'New Earth' is heretic. This type of fear mongering reminds me so much of my fellow Christian's who have dived into the deep end of fundamentalism, fearing anything that is new and foreign (well not new, Tolle's teachings are simply a repackaging of thousands year old spiritual teachings of different traditions). Quoting the Bible this and Bible that without giving thought that the Bible itself has gone through many many revisions, changes and translation that many of its original meanings of the scriptures misinterpreted, misunderstood and even changed to use as a control tool for the governing powers of that era.
STOP PLUGGING GARBAGE OR IM GONE! Nov 19, 2009
I MIGHT HAVE PURCHASED THIS BOOK BY MISTAKE!,NO DOUBT MANY PEOPLE WILL ORDER THIS EXCREMENT FOR ANOTHER OR UPON RECOMMENDATION and perhaps they will be too polite to say anything or worse try to get through it and question their own sanity,not everyone especially people in a hurry, this drivel is selling many times the number that the brain damaged who are told to go out and buy it,buy now you should know it-im not for censorship but you at this site are benefiting artificially by putting this look-a-like in the same area as it's opposite!,if this situation remains i will look elsewhere for purchases and I encourage others to do the same. It is, indeed,paradoxical that if one is bright enough to read, they could possibly think this is a lucid rebuttal or could possibility think!jay st.j
What...New Age? Nov 4, 2009
I don't think this author even read A New Earth. "New Age"? This guy is so dated and ingrained in ego.....not the bible or God. His book reinforces the need for true insight and spiritual connection with God that Eckhart Tolle helps makes possible.
