“Writing Under the Influence”

My concerns over the book, Jesus Calling, as well as Sarah Young’s many other books have been well established here at Steak and a Bible. But its influence continues to grow and so I’m glad to see that Marcia Montenegro of Christian Answers for the New Age has weighed in about the book.

She has a new commentary posted at Sola Sisters called, “Jesus Calling by Sarah Young: W.U.I. (Writing under the influence).” As a former New Ager, Montenegro has a unique ability to tackle the issue of “listening” for God, as Young claims she did.

Her post is “a response primarily to two issues: 1) The claims made by Young regarding what she wrote and the alleged words spoken to her by Jesus; and 2) Young’s admission that a primary influence on her was the book, God Calling, by “Two Listeners.” Due to Young’s admiration for and admitted inspiration from this latter book, it will also be examined.”

I hope you’ll take the time to read it.




About Julia

Here's what you might like to know about me. My name is Julia and I'm a Christian. I love the Bible and, much less importantly, a good steak. My goal with this site is to share the truth of scripture with believer and non-believer alike, and to specifically encourage believers to study and know the Bible, and warn them of false teachings in and around the church. Romans 1:16-17 "For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth, to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, the just shall live by faith."
