New God in our future? 'Tomorrow's God: Our Greatest Spiritual Challenge,' by Neale Donald Walsch, claims it's inevitable

The world is going to get a new God, according to "Tomorrow's God," a new book by New York Times best-selling author Neale Donald Walsch. It's not question of whether this astounding prediction will come true, the book asserts; it's a matter of when. And the "when," Walsch says, is soon, within the lifetime of most of us.

Humanity is going to have a new God in the very near future.

This bold and stunning prediction -- including what this new God will look like and how it will inspire the human race -- is the basis of “Tomorrow's God: Our Greatest Spiritual Challenge” (Atria Books, March 2, 2004), by New York Times best-selling author Neale Donald Walsch, author of the extraordinarily successful “Conversations with God” series.

Will we wake up and develop this life-transforming awareness of our new God now, the book asks, or will it take an unprecedented, earthshattering tragedy before those still left on Earth admit that the ideas of “yesterday’s God” no longer work?

“Tomorrow's God” predicts we will face this choice imminently. How we respond will be up to us, the book says, but one of those prospects -- breakpoint or turning point -- will characterize life on this planet before long.

In what he purports to be the dictation of an actual conversation with God, author Walsch quotes God as saying that the requirements, judgments and punishments now attributed to God will soon be gone. Gone too will be the perennial cycle of conflict and violence on Earth, which the book says is based on a misbelief that God practices, and therefore approves of and encourages, such conduct.

In place of “Yesterday’s God” will be a deity “whose only emotion is total love for all of humanity and Life itself, and whose agenda includes no objective other than to empower Life to produce more Life, more abundantly and more gloriously in each moment,” Walsch says.

While predicting the emergence of a “New Spirituality” among the world’s people, Walsch says this does not mean the creation of a new religion. Instead, he says, “Tomorrow's God” invites us to create a new view of the religions we now embrace. The idea is not that humanity will benefit from rejecting or abandoning its present spiritual beliefs, but, rather, from expanding them to include extraordinary new possibilities.

While certain principles of this New Spirituality may seem heretical to some people today, they’ll become universal truths tomorrow, Walsch asserts. These New Spirituality principles include:

• There is only One God and this One God doesn’t care whether we’re Catholic or Protestant, Jewish or Muslim, Hindu or Mormon, or have no religion at all.

• We are one with God and with each other.

• No one is better than anyone else.

• Freedom is the essence of Life, not something we earn.

• Love knows no condition or limitation.

Striking in its theology and expansive in its cosmology, “Tomorrow's God” offers the world a path out of its unremitting despair and a just-in-time detour from what many agree could be our journey to self-destruction.

The book describes not only the new nature of the God of our tomorrows, but how our re-created relationship with this new God will forever change humanity’s most important social constructions -- religion, politics, business, education. It also articulates how a host of issues, ranging from child rearing and health care to the environment, will be addressed in exciting new ways under the New Spirituality.

“Sweeping in its scope and breathtaking in its vision, ‘Tomorrow's God’ may well one day be seen as the breakthrough statement on spirituality of the early 21st century,” the book’s publisher, Atria Books, said. Atria is an imprint of Simon & Schuster Inc.
