Soon after the first Conversations with God book was published in May 1995, demand began for tools that would assist parents in teaching the marvelous concepts of this extraordinary dialogue to children. Readers wanted to share with their offspring what CwG had shared with them. "If only I have been introduced to these ways of seeing God and myself when I was 8 or 9, my whole life would have been different" were the words Neale Donald Walsch heard in letter after letter and conversation after conversation. This book is an outgrowth of the School of New Spirituality program. In it, Walsch has joined with Laurie Lankins Farley and Emily A. FIlmore, the directors of the school, to put into one place all the spiritual concepts of a home schooling curriculum. This book makes available for parents not only the tools for teaching CwG'sconcepts, but a narrative summary of the concepts themselves, to help aid in their home schooling efforts, and help them to use the other tools created by the school with maximum effectiveness. Each chapter is presented in two parts: (1) A narrataive for parents that includes background information and interpretative commentary on the spiritual concepts being explored; and (2)Tools with which parents may effectively share these concepts with their children. Together they form a powerful guide for the spiritual teachers of the 21st century,

In a friendly, parent-to-parent voice, Natasha Crain identifies 30 specific conversations about God that parents must have with their children, organizing them under the categories of - the existence of God - science and God - the nature of God - believing in God - the difference God makes Chapters are sequenced in a curriculum-oriented way to provide a cumulative learning experience, making this book a flexible resource for use in multiple settings: homes, church classes, youth groups, small groups, private Christian schools, and homeschools.

This book on apologetics will lead parents in critical conversations that will help grow and guide kids to be lifelong followers of Christ."--Kristen Welch, author of Raising Grateful Kids in an Entitled World "Hey parents: Do you want to reduce the chances that your child will follow the crowd to the point of rejecting Christ and the values and truths you hold so dearly?

Carlo M. Martini was cardinal of the largest diocese in the world, a scholar, and one of the most renowned men of the church. Georg Sporschill has worked in prisons and lived with drug-addicted street children in Romania and Moldavia. The two Jesuits met in Jerusalem and became firends: two worlds, one faith--and a passionate search for ways in which the message of Jesus of Nazareth can still be effective for tomorrow. In a series of conversations they ask what faith can mean for life, what future young people have in the church, and what must be changed so that Crhistianity itself has a future. The questions from young people are the catalyst for deep thought. Is the future only dark? Where are the rays of light on the horizon? What would Jesus say today?
AND GOD SAID… Neale Donald Walsch didn’t claim to be special or spiritually gifted. He was just a frustrated man who sat down one day with pen in his hand and some tough questions in his heart. As he wrote his questions to God, he realized that God was answering them—directly—through Walsch’s pen. And the result was a series of witty, provocative, and profound books that have changed the lives of readers around the world. Here in one handsome volume, with new introductions and afterwords, are the second two books in the Conversations with God series. In Conversations with God 2, Neale Donald Walsch and God continue their discussion and move on to larger topics than the personal issues addressed in Conversation with God 1. The pair discusses time, space, and politics. It is an honest look at some of the broad issues important to all of us on the planet. Conversations with God 3, the final book of the original three-book series, contains “universal truths of the highest order, and the challenges and opportunities of the soul.” In this volume, the dialogue expands to include more about the nature of God, about love and fear, about who we are and who we may become. Here is also a profound dialogue about the culture, philosophy, and spirituality of highly evolved beings in other realms of the universe and how they have learned to view life, love, and the pursuit of happiness.

I wonder a lot about what God is doing in the world. And why He picks some of the people he picks to do the things He has them do. I even wonder why He picked me to do what He said He wanted me to do. So I asked Him. And He told me. Told me about that Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil. Told me about Noah and his big boat. About Abraham and Jacob and Joseph down in Egypt - And Moses and that Goat. Told me about Joshua and the Walls of Jericho. Job on the dung heap. Made me feel better about myself. I was hesitant to ask Him about His own Son, Jesus. But He talked to me just as if He thought I might be able to understand. And Peter and Paul. And how a man could be struck blind and have his eyes opened all at the same time. I was still wondering, more than ever. And he took me back again to that Tree of Knowledge and I thought that Tree must be the most wonderful Tree in all Creation. But a greater wonder is that He would talk with me, and give me such a special job to do. I wondered: Why me? Then He said to me. Write it down. And get it right this time. So I wrote it down just the way He told it to me. Now I wonder if I have got it right. And if you who read my tale will get it right because you are one of His People too. I hope.
