Thomas Nelson There is More to the Secret: An Examination of Rhonda Byrne's Bestselling Book The Secret - eBook

The "Law" of Attraction: is it real? Is it biblical? Is it just another way to practice Christianity? Spiritual formation speaker Ed Gungor critiques this element of the massively popular modern iteration of New Thought found in the book and video The Secret while not concerning himself with its occult underpinnings. But instead of dismantling the philosophy behind the Law of Attraction, Gungor attempts to bring it into line with the Bible, equating the techniques with meditation and visualization. Injecting Christianity into the model to produce an amalgam and altering the focus toward Christ-centered goals, the author proposes and blazes a middle ground for understanding this worldview.

I was so excited to find this book while struggling through "The Secret". It made clear what was Biblical and what was not, clarifying what to accept and reject in theory. I appreciate the author's openness yet "no nonsense" approach to the law of attraction. I personally prefer knowing the truth over a tempting new age theory...regardless of it's proclaimed benefits. I was able to glean the good (Biblically sound) information and apply it to my life without throwing out the entire law (of attraction). I highly recommend it to anyone who has read "The Secret".

This book is amazing. I like the way he does not slam The Secret but fills in the missing parts. The book was very helpful to me and I will give copies of it to my friends.
