In a defining moment for her followers, Oprah Winfrey denied that Christ is the only way to salvation... or a term that Oprah might prefer -"spiritual enlightenment". Oprah has unleashed her widely known brand and highly efficient marketing engine to tout the false worth and spread the empty message of Eckhart Tolle's book, A New Earth, ... a message that flies in the face of Biblical teaching and Christian beliefs. Oprah's New Age Church? is a critical review of Oprah's online interviews of Eckhart Tolle's book, chapter by chapter, in the form of thirty-eight articles including some that deal with the New Age philosophy in general. Contrary to New Age doctrine, there is no contradiction in Jesus or His teaching. The contradictions are all in a system of New Thought that confuses the material universe with that which is divine, promises universal peace as a result of all people doing their own thing, preaches a doctrine that is not really a belief, claims we can evolve to a higher, better level though there is no standard of what is better, and offers no evidence that its claims are true because the gurus simply know within themselves; they know. Unfortunately, many have tried Christianity and found the lifestyle too strenuous or the participants too hypocritical or the variety of denomminational doctrines too confusing and contradictory, and they have become disenchanted. While Tolle is not arguing for salvation in Christ, he offers divine hope, and that has proven to be appealing to millions. Charlie Brackett, the author of Oprah's New Age Church?, hopes to show that those things Tolle promises - peace among men, strength to cope with life's difficulties, and the hope of universal unity - are not really possible outside of Jesus Christ, the only Son of God of the Bible, and that the "new earth" we should strive for is that from heaven, which the Lord promised.
