Sarah Young’s book, Jesus Calling, has sold over 9 million copies as of 2013. It is my sincere belief that book is subtly deceiving millions of people and that is why I’ve warned about the book in earlier posts.
Warren Smith, a former New Ager who became a Christian, has written multiple books warning about New Age practices and philosophy invading Christian churches through sermons, teachers and books. If anyone would recognize New Age thought, it would be someone who spent years practicing the New Age right?
Smith’s new book, Another Jesus Calling, tackles Young’s tremendously popular book as well as the book she herself says inspired her to start listening for God’s voice, pen in hand. Another Jesus Calling is a must read book. (Read on to learn about the giveaway)
Perhaps Young’s methods or her book already makes you uncomfortable. I hope that is the case. If that is where you stand, it is my opinion you should still read Another Jesus Calling to be equipped to warn your brothers and sisters about it. Isn’t that our responsibility as believers? And as popular as it is, I’m sure someone you know from church or work or elsewhere is soaking up Young’s book.
Perhaps you love Young’s books and see no problem with her methods. Then I beg you to read Another Jesus Calling with an open mind and prayerful heart. Smith compares what Jesus Calling, and what God Calling say to the Scriptures to see if they agree with or contradict the Bible. Over and over again he finds them in conflict with the Bible. He also finds them eerily similar to New Age teachings.
This probably goes without saying, but I want to make it clear that I don’t know Warren Smith personally and I do not work for him or his publisher in any way. I simply think he and Lighthouse Trails have published something that is much needed right now.
Because I think this is book is a must read, I’m going to give it away. In fact, I’d like to give two copies to someone. One for them to read, and a second copy for them to give to someone they know who has been or is being influenced by Young’s book.
