She is inspired by untrustworthy models. In early versions of Jesus Calling , Young tells of her discovery of the book God Calling and the way she modeled her practice of listening on it. This little paperback became a treasure to me. God Calling is an equally troubling book that saw much success beginning in the s and has seen a revival of interest in the wake of Jesus Calling.

She mimics occult practices. The way in which Young receives her revelation from Jesus smacks of the occult. I felt awkward the first time I tried this, but I received a message.
It was short, biblical, and appropriate. It addressed topics that were current in my life: trust, fear, and closeness to God.

Her book has been corrected. This, of course, casts even further doubt on the trustworthiness of the revelation she receives. After all, why would words from Jesus need to be revised? Did God lie? Did he change? Did she mis-hear him? There is no good option here, other than to doubt all she has ever claimed to receive.
