“O” God: A Dialogue on Truth and Oprah’s Spirituality provides an in-depth look at the controversial spiritual beliefs of one of the greatest media influences of all time: Oprah.
Between The Oprah Winfrey Show, O Magazine and her national webinars on faith, millions are being exposed to Oprah’s splintered beliefs. As many exit the doors of traditional religion, the church of Oprah has become a viable alternative to a world looking for a savior—but without the strings. Christians and those of other faiths are asking the nagging question: “Where do Oprah’s teachings lead?” In “O” God, mega-bestselling Christian author and evangelist Josh McDowell teams up with Dave Sterrett, a gifted writer and popular speaker. Together, they provide a cutting-edge response to popular inquiries about Oprah’s spiritual teaching and the advice of the colorful teachers she promotes.
“The danger is that while appearing to use Christian and inclusive language that at first seems similar to that of Christianity, Oprah teaches a message that is radically different and absolutely contrary to the true teaching of Scripture and historic Christianity,” McDowell and Sterrett warn.
McDowell and Sterrett approach the spirituality of Oprah by means of a fictional narrative. By using stories to address the deeper issues raised through Oprah’s media empire, McDowell and Sterrett disarm and entertain their readers, while also revealing biblical truths and exposing the errant teachings and misconceptions of Oprah.
“O” God follows the conversations of two girl friends, Lindsey and Avatari – representing the multitudes of Oprah fans, who unwittingly place their faith in the hodgepodge of spirituality embedded in her popular TV talk show, magazine and webinars. In the end, a life-altering crisis helps crystallize the truth from counterfeit teachings.
