A Review of “Another Jesus” Calling by Warren B. Smith“Person to Person Calling” was a particular kind of telephone call, that I as a telephone operator, performed over and over in the days before unlimited long distance rates.  And this “person to person” calling is what Sarah Young purported to have heard in her best selling book Jesus Calling.

The question for us is:  “Was Jesus Calling?”  Former New Ager, Warren B. Smith, gives us the answer in his provocative little book: “Another Jesus” Calling.  And the answer, Smith most decisively proves, is this, “No, Jesus was not calling!”  And here’s why:

Saturating his thirty concerns with scripture, as to why Jesus did not personally speak with Sarah Young, Smith lays out a precise picture providing us with a book of which you can, with confidence, share with skeptical friends or family that have been deceived into devouring Young’s channeled devotional.

Smith first introduces us to Sarah Young, who seems like an unlikely person to have been lured into receiving channeled messages from “another Jesus,” having once been a student at Francis Schaeffer’s L’Abri, but in spite of  this background this was where Sarah became aware of a lovely presence whom she called “Sweet Jesus.”

Smith next introduces us to God Calling- the book Sarah embraced  before she, too, became a listener with pen in hand.  In this section Smith provides numerous scriptures along with each of his ten concerns, as to why God was not calling those two lady listeners; and as to why Sarah was deceived from the get-go when she based her own book on the listener’s spiritual dictation.

One of my favorite publishers in the Christian genre is Lighthouse Trails Research and Publishing. Besides the excellent books available, they also have a sister company called The Shepherd’s Garden that includes an exclusive line of certified organic tea that is the best I’ve tasted – and perfect to enjoy with a good book which is why I’m including a review of them at this book blog!

The Cranberry Orange Rooibos is my favorite but the Vanilla Almond Rooibos is a close second. Other flavors include Chai Green, Peppermint, Peach White, and Spicy Red Chai that can be purchased separately (20 teabags per box for $6.95) or you can try a sampler box that includes an assortment of all the flavors. Each individually-wrapped teabag has a Bible verse on the tag that adds a lovely note of encouragement to an already enjoyable experience.
