As he wrote his inquiries to God, he discovered that God used to be answering them... directly... via Walsch's pen. the outcome, faraway from the apocalyptic predictions or cultic eccentricities it's possible you'll count on, seems to be matter-fact, in-your-face knowledge on the way to get through in lifestyles whereas last real to your self and your spirituality.
