Official Review: God is Alive and Well

[Following is an official OnlineBookClub.org review of "God is Alive and Well" by Dr. Robert W. Walker.]

4 out of 4 stars
Share This Review


God is Alive and Well is an encouraging and enlightening book written by Dr. Robert W. Walker.

The book, which has twenty six relatively short chapters, introduces the readers to a ‘totally new understanding of who God is and who we are in relation to Him/Her.’ The author presents his personal opinion and theories about the burning bush in the story of Moses, the temptation of Christ by Satan and why God created us differently from one another. Moreover, the book presents the concept of quantum energy which the author believes to be the God-energy that created the universe and everything in it through exquisite design.

Furthermore, the author expounds on what being ‘born again’ or ‘spiritually awakened’ really means. He goes on to explain that we, actually, have four bodies: our physical body controls our five senses, our emotional body is connected to our heart and right brain functions which control our love centers, our mental body refers to our belief system based on our family teachings, education, peers and culture, and our spirit/soul is the piece of God’s spirit in us. Imbalanced energy from these bodies impacts our health and wellness.

In addition, the book offers simple explanation of the ten commandments of God given to Moses in the book of Exodus, and reconciles the description of a totally judgmental and vindictive God in the Old Testament as opposed to the God of pure love in the New Testament. He also shows how God wants to communicate with us and that He wants us to have a spiritual connection with Him so that we could live in light, love and wisdom. Finally, the author shares some of his personal experiences in spiritual awakening, spiritual healing and betrayal.

Needless to say, this is one informative, enlightening and inspiring book. I like the book’s impartiality especially with regards to sexuality. The author refers to God as Father/Mother and Him/Her, which shows that his faith goes beyond gender issues. My favorite part is that particular chapter that recounts the author’s personal experience where he was placed in the position to pass judgment on an individual because of sexual orientation.

However, this is not an easy read. This is not one of those books that can be read and enjoyed while waiting at the train station nor is it one of those feel-good books that can be read while waiting for a friend at a coffee shop. This is a serious, well-written and well-researched book that offers important advice on how to establish a spiritual connection with God. Moreover, some of the explanations may sound too technical for other readers. Finally, there are errors within the entire book including misspelled word, missing apostrophe and faulty parallelism, which are thankfully very few.

I, therefore, rate this book 4 out of 4 stars. It is well-written, well-researched, well-referenced, informative, enlightening, inspiring and encouraging. I recommend it to believers and non-believers alike. I recommend it to believers, especially Christians, that they might learn how to establish a spiritual connection with God and to non-believers that they might learn about a very interesting concept to contemplate on.

Thank you so much for the informative review. This is a book I'd like to read when I get time. It piqued my interest as a non-believer, partly because it addresses some of the things that turn me off about Christianity, such as the attitudes to sexuality and the vengeful god of the Old Testament. I am also intrigued because it clearly addresses what I think is at the heart of all religions - the stimulus to be and do the best that humans are capable of.

I hope one day this book is in my list of "Want to Read." Even spend my time to double read it because I want to make sure that every page of this book will sink my mind in. I really believe that God wants to communicate with us. He uses every form such as this book to do it. I appreciate your reviews. Thank you!

This definitely sounds like one that you need to sit and stew with for a while! I appreciate the great information. It sounds like one that I would enjoy delving into.

I was initially drawn to the review by the title of the book, which I originally thought was meant ironically. Despite the apparent open-mindedness of the author, I'm not sure I want to read this book, despite a fascination in the topic. Christianity is but one religion; there are monotheistic religions out there whose stories interest me, and I think any book dealing about God should talk about them.

This is one book on Theology. Although the views presented might be philosophical, rather than theological, it could not escape being evangelical. Thank you for your informative review.
