How a Twilight Zone writer
found himself living in the Twilight Zone when God revealed Himself to
On February 18, 1997, award-winning
writer, J. Neil Schulman, had an experience he later described as a
"Vulcan Mind Meld with God."
It was not the first time Neil had been in touch with the Eternal.
Forget Oh, God!, Bruce Almighty, and Joan of
Arcadia. As delightful as they are, those stories are fiction.
These events really happened to J. Neil Schulman. And for the first
time, Neil is telling his story in full. Of course you're free to make
up your mind whether you think Neil is telling the truth or not, and
whether you believe he's in his right mind or not.
In over seventeen hours of
personal interviews conducted by author Brad Linaweaver, radio interviews on Jack Landman's
plus seminars and poetry, Neil is finally revealing the depth of life-changing, challenging, confronting, weird, funny, frightening, paranormal, Kabbalistic, spiritual, inspirational,
ecstatic, and otherwise extraordinary events that have led him from
being an utterly skeptical atheist to a believer in God, although a
believer who still regards himself as not being a member of any
Atheists think that God is a mythical character that exists only as
an invented product of human religions. Religions talk about God as if
He's a missing-in-action ancient historical phantom found only in
scripture. Neither atheism nor religion speaks about God as a smart,
vibrant, witty, opinionated, eternally present, and very human spirit.
J. Neil Schulman's experience of God has been direct and personal, not
filtered through scripture, tradition, or religious teachings. And,
because he is a novelist, journalist, and screenwriter noted for his
compelling style, Neil is able to describe his contact with God in
abundant detail, with fresh insights and revealing new perspectives.
Unlike Neale Donald Walsch's Conversations with God, J. Neil
Schulman did not seek to start a conversation with God. Quite the
contrary. J. Neil Schulman was an atheist who found, despite his best
efforts to disbelieve it, that God was starting a conversation with
J. Neil Schulman's personal account of his contact with God is unique,
with a view of God that challenges traditional religious views of God as
remote and authoritarian, and challenges a New Age view that denies God has
a definable personality.
In I Met God, J. Neil Schulman
tells you ...
- How he decided when he was only five years old that he didn't
believe God existed, a view Neil held until his 30's;
- How even as an atheist Neil experienced paranormal phenomena such as
foreknowledge of events, psychic communication, and supernatural
- What convinced Neil that God was not a fable but a real and present
spirit with a fully human personality;
- How religious scholars' totally non-Biblical definition of God as "omnipotent, omniscient, and omnipresent" have driven rational people into atheism;
- Why religious people who will only worship God and Jesus if They are perfect and incapable of making mistakes are childish, prideful, and ultimately disloyal to God;
- How God discouraged Neil from praying too much ... and how a few
weeks later Neil had a remarkable dream that changed his life;
- Why the disbelief in the afterlife, or belief in Heaven as a real
place, is the single most important factor in how people make their
fundamental life choices and form their political opinions;
- What God looks for when He looks into a human soul, and how from
His viewpoint God is not all-powerful but He feels almost
helpless in the face of our individual free-will powers ...
- And Much Much More!
