This is a fascinating book and the material is deep. It can help better understand CWG books 1 and 2 as it was literally started between 2 and 3 as is interestingly described on page 24. (Personally I prefer this hardcover version.)

The Five Attitudes of God, the Seven Steps in Creating a Friendship with God, and the challenge of Accepting God are part of what can be found within it. What may assist more, however, are some of the experiences Walsch shares with the reader. Reading of his background as a child, youth, and expanding life experiences should assist many in understanding the application of not only the processes in this book, but in many of the others as well.

For some readers reading selected sections or pages of the book can be much more helpful rather than trying to read it from page one through. Here are suggestion: hold the book in your hands, close you eyes and ask 'what page'? Whatever comes to the mind, go to that and start. Another way is close the eyes and thumb it to where it 'feels right'. Yet another is to start at the BACK of the book and slowly go thumb pages watching for something that 'catches' your eye.... then stop and feel what it says.

Some readers find that it is easier to absorb this material by listening to the Audio version (6 tape set). This reviewer has used both the book and the audio version in CWG study group settings. Listening to selected sections followed by discussion has proven to be the more effective method than reading - the selected sections were chosen by the group facilitator rather than going through the book as one might normally read it.

The book is wonderful. It is missing it's paper cover and has a couple hi-lighted sentences in the beginning.

This book isn't for the religiously conservative. Be prepared to be informed that you don't need the church, a pastor, or the pope to have a 'personal relationship with god' - whatever, whoever you perceive her or him (or it) to be. I didn't last with 'Tomorrow's God' but this book is kicking my spiritual a**. What if you had no needs or wants but lived understanding that you get exactly what you NEED but possibly not what you want? What if we're addicted to the idea that we 'should' have a life be a 'certain' way? What if we're spiritual beings in human form and that the point of being here is to evolve, find our purpose, and discover that there's no such thing as a 'damming' god or judgmental goddess? Eeek! I'm ready to be changed and this book is changing my intimate, daily, personal relationship with 'god' of which I am a part!
