At times he DOES sound very Buddhist, but I don't think he's pretending to be anything other than true to his own experience, and I think he does truly care about helping people find there true nature, what we'd call Buddha Nature.
I believe people who scorn at Eckhart Tolle perhaps have some attachment issues towards the Dharma, which isn't very Buddhist in my opinion.
No holds barred discussion on the Buddhadharma. Argue about rebirth, karma, commentarial interpretations etc.
