If you've seen Oprah in 2008, you've probably heard her talk about Eckhart Tolle's book called A New Earth. But, what are the principles in the book, and what does it teach? On Issues of Faith, we take a look at Tolle's spiritual principles from two different viewpoints. Rev. Denise Yeargin from the Unity Church for Positive Living talks about Tolle's work and how she and her congregation use the ideas in A New Earth. Then, Rev. Kevin Shrum from Inglewood Baptist Church gives his take on the book and shares his concern that it does not agree with some principles laid out in the Bible.
