"Another Jesus" Calling
How False Christs Are Entering the Church Through Contemplative Prayer
Inspired by the New Age book God Calling, Sarah Young claims to be receiving messages from Jesus Christ which she compiled into what is now her best-selling book, Jesus Calling. Author Warren Smith carefully documents his concerns about her book, her "Jesus," and the New Age implications contained in many of Young's devotional messages. He also warns about the danger of contemplative prayer and in elevating spiritual experiences over the Word of God. "Another Jesus" Calling is Smith's call for much needed discernment in these very deceptive times.

Because of his past involvement in the New Age movement, he has written extensively on the subject of spiritual deception. He is a frequent speaker at conferences in the US and Canada. Warren has also been a guest on TBC's internet radio program Search the Scriptures 24/7.
