When Helen Schucman, a professor of medical psychology at Columbia University, began hearing an inner voice of rapid dictation (which she eventually identified as the voice of Jesus), she decided to start taking shorthand notes. Then, with the support and encouragement of a colleague, Schucman continued to assemble the teachings that came to her. The result is A Course in Miracles, a book that has spawned hundreds of study groups and an international following. Although some may find the teachings simplistic ("To heal is to make happy"), many are struck by the predominately compassionate and eloquent passages of this Christian-based interpretation of the Bible ("Whenever you deny a blessing to a brother you will feel deprived, because denial is as total as love"). Indeed, many of the teachings carry weight and certainly merit the acclaim and attention that this book has generated. --Gail Hudson --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

Now I am seriously doing the lessons and reading the text as well as listening to tapes by Robert Perry,Allen Watson and Kenneth Wapnick. Inner peace is coming. This book is truly a profound love letter from Jesus and God to us."...teach only love, for that is what you are"
The book says that all scriptures that portray God as punitive and vengeful misrepresent the gospel of good news that Jesus intended:" ...this is not the gospel I intended."
The ego wants to keep us hooked on sin,guilt,fear and death and imprisoned in our body with its illusions of separateness and specialness...with its severe and painful limitations and pathetic littleness.
Jesus says in the Course that we are unlimited spirits who have never really left Heaven(perfect awareness of Oneness)but remain totally loved and loving,completely healed and whole.We are one with God and each other and completely invulnerable.If we but ask the Holy Spirit to lead us our world will become in time a most beautiful experience...as we learn to awaken and experience ourselves and all others as holy sons/daughters of God." I am still as God created me..."
We will come to see others' actions as either expressing love OR crying out for love.In either case we will choose to bless rather than judge and condemn everyone we meet or think about.
If you now lack perfect peace and joy or do not feel a certainty of purpose then A Course in Miracles can do miracles for you.
You ego will fight your learning because the Course is designed to put our childishly egocentric egos out of business thus clear our path so we can feel genuine union with everyone and real love for ourselves and God. It works.
SO, read the book before you make comments about it. As you can see, my comments are not about this book so I don't qualify for that.
