This book presents a fascinating look at a century-old movement which puts the accent on the power of positive thinking, the presence of God, the Divine within, interpersonal relationships, health, and harmony. The authors show how this philosophy of life has assimilated Eastern and psychological influences and been given fresh vitality by New Age writers and workshops. Do-it-yourself religion appeals to those who are interested in results. Alan Anderson and Deborah Whitehouse end the book with their own enthusiastic takes on New Thought's major principles.
