Neale Donald Walsch is a bestselling author and modern day spiritual messenger whose words continue to touch the world in profound ways. With an early interest in religion and a deeply felt connection to spirituality, Neale spent the majority of his life thriving professionally, yet searching for spiritual meaning.
In the early 1990s he suffered a series of crushing blows—a fire that destroyed all of his belongings, the break-up of his marriage and a car accident that left him with a broken neck. Once recovered, Neale was alone, unemployed, living in a tent and collecting and recycling aluminum cans in order to eat. At the time, he thought his life had come to an end. Despondent, he gradually worked his way out of homelessness and began writing.
His first book, Conversations with God, was published in 1995 and became an international bestseller. It remained on the New York Times Bestseller List for 135 weeks. Six of his other books have made the Times list in the years since. His Conversations with God series of books has been translated into 27 languages, touching millions of lives and inspiring important changes in their day-to-day lives.
