Movie Review: Conversations with God
Reviewed by Peter DeHaan
Both thought-provoking and inspiring, the movie Conversations with God, is based on the book by the same name, authored by Neale Donald Walsch. This true story is a compelling account of Neale, living among the homeless after being laid off and surviving a car accident. As Neale struggles for survival and strives to regain his life, simple kindnesses become greatly appreciated gifts.As he wrote, 'If you want to create abundance for yourself, create it for someone else.'

When his first glimmer of hope is quickly squelched, Neale calls out in frustration to God—and God answers! Eventually Neale accepts this as a revelation from God, which ultimately turns into a best-selling book.
Neale’s life—and lifestyle—is decidedly changed as a result and we are treated to the generous and sensitive ways he seeks to give back. As he wrote, “If you want to create abundance for yourself, create it for someone else.”
When asked to summarize God’s most important message to us, Neale condenses it into five words: “You got me all wrong.”
