    1. An incredibly biased book proclaiming that God wants nothing. It babbled far too much, repeated same points time and time again "for effect" and preached the one point of view that it wanted. It was neither a Christian, nor Jewish, nor a Muslim viewpoint but a writers own and that rather disappointed me. It criticised all religions but preached its own "New Spirituality" movement. It's a miracle I finished reading this book at all.

    2. I think in my case he's kinda preaching to the choir. I get it, I get the value of the question. I'm just not excited by it. Probably cause the question isn't a new one to me, nor is his proposed answer. I disagree with some of his statements about the state of the world. He does what seems to me a bit of catastrophizing in order to make the point that change is needed. Which I find a bit repellent. Maybe he believes it but I don't find that angle motivating. So I enjoyed his thoughts on the que [...]

    3. I enjoy all of Walsch's books; I think they really speak the wisdom of today's God -- one that is applicable to today's unique needs, moving beyond our preocupation with mythic formulas and rigid boundaries. But this small book -- much smaller than Walsch's other works -- is extraordinary. It's concise and cogent, often hitting straight at the heart of things that people have often believed about Godd (according to "Walsch's God") erroneously, at that. Not for the un-ready mind, but in my opinio [...]

    4. It started off really well for medressed the issues that I have been pondering with over the yrsbut then it lost its momntum half way through just got really repeptitivehalf the book doesnt have to be thereif he had kept it to the point it would of been greatI found myself skim reading after half way through. Look forward to discussing it at Book club.lets see how the others found it

    5. A humanist manifesto written in an irritatingly vague manner. Walsch calls for a New Spirituality, which he claims is compatible with an expansive view of religion. However, his recaps and summaries of the beliefs of others is largely insulting. The best part of the book is the last section about the power of positive thinking.

    6. This book found me at Barnes and Noble. I am a spiritual junkie lately. I am slowly reading the concepts of this book. Being raised Christian, it was difficult at first to get past the initial question, what God wants. But, with an open mind its getting easier to disgest.

    7. I had a giggle when I noticed him quoting the Bible 'We are made in Gods image' And then on the next breath telling us that God wants nothing from us and that we don't need him. He obviously is picking and choosing verses from the Bible yet not noticing or choosing to not notice the verses in the Bible that tell us God loves us and wants us to acknowledge himmhypocrite much?!

    8. == A god without expectations ==I read most of NDW’s books from the beginning of his CWG phenomena. I then found HIS GOD provocative, funny and occasionally wise. But Neale doesn’t seem to be listening to HIS GOD much in this book. Instead he is having undisciplined conversations with himself and he is fed up, annoyed and angry. He comes across as biased, judgmental, rambling and incoherent. He leads the reader on to believe that he has something dangerous, new and astounding to tell us, but [...]

    9. Same idea, presented in a slightly different way, which is always helpful. I do think Walsch went too far in the beginning describing the problems that our previous ideas of what God wants have caused us. All of that negativity might turn people off of the book before they even get to the important message he is trying to share. It seemed more like he was letting off steam before making his point rather than approaching the subject with purpose, which I thought was counterproductive. After that, [...]

    10. this book was selected by my reading club & i have to admit that my immediate thoughts on the title was that it would be full of religous text & quotes from the bible, but im pleased to say it wasntonally id like to see it re-named 'what the universe wants'quite an interesting read although a bit repetative in partsa lot of the ideas weren't new to me but its got me interested in other books by this author line in the book for me - 'be the change you wish to see in the world' - ghandi.me [...]

    11. LOVING this book. I love how Walsch has set up this book in small, easy-to-digest chapters and sections. The basic premise is Walsch's take on what we've been told about 'What God Wants' and how that's affected every aspect of our lives - including our viewpoints on marriage, free will, the scriptures, etc He then puts forth his idea of 'What God Wants' and how that changes all those viewpoints dramatically. Challenging, but resonating with me in a huge way!

    12. This book was VERY repetitive at times, and sometimes somewhat dry, however I enjoyed reading it because it took an outside look at the principles that many Christians are taught as "right" and "wrong" in life and challenging the logic behind them. It was very reasonable and interesting and though I am sure many literal-minded Christians would hate it I thought it made some extremely valid points.

    13. A good perspective for those, like me, who kept thinking there was a way to do things better. That I had to somehow purify myself in order to be "doing the right thing." The main point here is that our experience here, any way we choose to act and experience it, is all that we need to do. It calls modern religion to task regarding the ways we can disappoint or offend god. Well worth the read.

    14. One God for all. God is all.Definitely not about atheism.I thought this was a very interesting book to read. It opened my mind to another way of thinking about the world's religions. New insights about God. It will definitely help me understand life a little better.I recommend this book to anyone who is open minded and interested in God.

    15. While I can't say that I agree with every little thing the author says in this book, I liked his general point and presentation. It did get me thinking quite a lot about how we view one another and our purpose in this world, and sparked many conversations with my husband and friends…. and after all, isn't that the point?!

    16. What God Wants is a good read, as it is one of the books that is a mind-changer to those who are still unaware of how religion currently operates. I think a book could be about 1/3 of it's current side, should it go straight to the point without unnecessary repetition and emphasis. The core of the book is towards the end. The reader has to be patient with too many words to reach it.

    17. A little repetitive at times but that, I believe, is to consolidate the points the author is trying to make. But very good in general. I'd been discussing all things stated in this book since the past few years with my friends so I really enjoyed reading it.

    18. Great read! I recommend it to everyone who like to think and question whichever religion you are coming from.This book is a great question and a wonderful reflection on our society and the choices we are making.

    19. Neale Donald Walsch is likely one of my four or five most read authors. This is the simple book that claims to be dangerous. Are you ready to read it?Think I have read enough of his book that new ideas pronounced just don't hit me like they used to.

    20. what a boneheaded book. a belief in God almost necessitates a belief that God's one/main requirement is that we love each other.

    21. This will be the last attempt to read anymore books by this author. I still like the first three, but he should have stopped there, because the rest have been ho-hum. . .

    22. Neale Donald Walsch does it again with a feel good, easy to understand, and thought provoking book.

    23. An encouragement that God wants and needs nothing from man. And implications of that for choices and attitudes toward life. Existentialist. Coaching.

    24. I liked reading this book, since I was already on the path but I didn't connect to it as much as I did the other books.
