“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.
