Product Description

The "Law" of Attraction: is it real? Is it biblical? Is it just another way to practice Christianity? Spiritual formation speaker Ed Gungor critiques this element of the massively popular modern iteration of New Thought found in the book and video The Secret while not concerning himself with its occult underpinnings. But instead of dismantling the philosophy behind the Law of Attraction, Gungor attempts to bring it into line with the Bible, equating the techniques with meditation and visualization. Injecting Christianity into the model to produce an amalgam and altering the focus toward Christ-centered goals, the author proposes and blazes a middle ground for understanding this worldview.

Publisher's Description

Is it possible to believe in both God and the law of attraction?

 Isn't this all just some New Age, "power of the mind" thing?

 If the law of attraction works, why isn't it in the Bible – or is it?

Questions like these are being asked by people around the world after reading the best-selling book, The Secret. According to the law of attraction, you can have virtually anything desired if your mind is trained to put out continual thoughts to attract it into your life.

In this deeply compelling work, Ed Gungor seeks to establish a more complete and accurate representation of the power of the mind by explaining the role that God plays in the equation. This book is not written to attack but rather to examine what the author believes is misguided advice while still speaking to the heart-felt need that is causing so many to explore this ancient practice. Some of his views may surprise you. There is more to the story that must be told.

Author Bio

Ed Gungor serves as senior pastor of Peoples Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma. He is a popular and dynamic speaker, challenging people at churches, universities, and conferences to make a positive and faith-filled impact on their world. Gungor is also the author of several books, including the New York Times best seller There Is More to the Secret, Religiously Transmitted Diseases, and the soon-to-be-released The Vow.

    I was so excited to find this book while struggling through "The Secret". It made clear what was Biblical and what was not, clarifying what to accept and reject in theory. I appreciate the author's openness yet "no nonsense" approach to the law of attraction. I personally prefer knowing the truth over a tempting new age theory...regardless of it's proclaimed benefits. I was able to glean the good (Biblically sound) information and apply it to my life without throwing out the entire law (of attraction). I highly recommend it to anyone who has read "The Secret".

    This book is amazing. I like the way he does not slam The Secret but fills in the missing parts. The book was very helpful to me and I will give copies of it to my friends.
