Where Has Oprah Taken Us? Book Review

 New York Times best-selling author, Stephen Mansfield, traces the fascinating and influential life of Oprah Winfrey, profiling her quest for spiritual enlightenment―a well-publicized journey featuring a caravan of experts, mystics, and gurus―all claiming to have a prescription for inner peace and personal well-being. Mansfield shows how Oprah's story fits into our larger cultural experience and reveals why her spiritual discoveries have resonated so loudly in today's popular culture. In so doing, he sheds needed light on the dangers of a spiritual journey fueled solely by a desire for self-actualization. In the end, we find that the story of Oprah is, in fact, the story of us―of a generation searching desperately for something meaningful to believe in. 

 ~My Review~ 

Everyone knows who Oprah is~she has been loved by many for years. I admit~I am a fan of hers too so I was excited to read this book. I liked how it started out~giving a look at how she came into this world,and the troubles that she had along the way. As she has worked hard to get where she is in life now. Stephen Mansfield is very honest and fair with Oprah's religious beliefs. I am not sure if I agree with everything that he wrote in the book.But I still think that it is a good read for fans of Oprah or not!
