From one of the most powerful women in media, Oprah is pushing a new book by Eckhart Tolle - "A New Earth".

Anyone read it yet? What are your thoughts on the book, its message and the push behind it?

No I haven't heard of it but I have heard the new course she wants to push : "A Course in Miracles" which is gnostic new age garbage.

Well, she must remain tolerant and universal... smash


When I don't measure up to much in this life, I'm a treasure in the arms of Christ.

I believe the course is based on the book I am talking about.

Here is a neat little youtube ditty where Oprah denies Christ and some snippets of her webcast pushing that book. She claims that God is only a feeling, not something/someone for us to believe in. She also claims that it doesn't matter what you believe as long as you are good, that you are your own salvation.

On a semi-related note, her ratings are sliding...

She just seems so flighty, always embracing the latest "guru" - I think it's the money grab actually, anything to sell a few more books.
