Bethany House New Earth, An Old Deception, A: Awakening to the Dangers of Eckhart Tolle's #1 Bestseller - eBook

Featured heavily on Oprah and touted by critics and readers alike, A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle is finding a huge following in the culture. Promoting ideas and beliefs that seem godly and good, this bestselling book is wrapping the country in a cocoon of sound spirituality.

Or is it?

It may sound right---almost Christian, in fact---but something isn't quite right says Richard Abanes, the author of such books as The Truth Behind the Da Vinci Code.

Equipping Christians with biblical answers and viewpoints, Abanes helps believers---as well as the curious---understand that Eckhart Tolle's message is dangerous.

Easy to read, A New Earth, An Old Deception is a concise refutation of the Oprah-promoted bestseller, providing a clear biblical response to this new age message. Topics include Tolle's misuse of Scripture, false teachings on God, the Bible's teaching on evil, A New Earth's version of salvation compared to God's plan, and much more.

It's amazing how one person can promote this type of nonsense and the multitudes fall for it. Great job by Mr. Abanes for his insight and explanation of how wrong this teaching is.

Jesus tells us to beware of false doctrine and false teachers - the author, Richard Abanes exposes A New Earth for exactly what it is - FALSE!! I highly recommend this book! I bought extra copies to give to family and friends.

I was very happy to see this book come to light because once I started reading Tolle's work I was very disappointed and very concerned with everyone that has jumped on his take of things. May the light of God come shinning through for them.
