Chuck Norris Weighs in on Oprah Winfrey and Eckhart Tolle

From a Christian standpoint, the teachings of Eckhart Tolle are scandalous. Seeing Tolle's Oprah-powered book A New Earth was #1 on the nytimes booklist, I browsed the book in an airport bookstore this past week. It's light reading for sure, quote-mining the words of Jesus for its own new agey quasi-Buddhist ideas.

Today I found this essay by (!) Chuck Norris which represents a pretty good resposne to Tolle and Winfrey from a Christian perspective.
