In 1965 Helen Schucman, a professor of medical psychology at Columbia University, responded to an authoritative inner voice who identified himself as Jesus, and who urged her to take down what would become A Course in Miracles from inner dictation. A self-study course in spiritual psychology, A Course in Miracles focuses on the principles of universal love and forgiveness. Ribbon marker.

Product Description

From Amazon

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Beautiful Miracle Feb. 28 2005
Format:Paperback
One of the few books that ever made me cry with joy. Beautiful, powerful, it is my favourite book and one that I am grateful to have found. The language in this book is extremely rich, and although the teaching can apply to anyone, the book itself can be intimidating or confusing for some. For myself, who has been seeking the kinds of answers and loving image of God that I couldn't get from my traditional Christian upbringing, this book changed my life. It is a book of profound love, peace, and wisdom without equal. Like many sophisticated spiritual texts, it can be easy to misinterpret or misunderstand some of the Course's principal ideas so I recommend reading the commentaries published in Kenneth Wapnick's books for further clarity (especially his "Most Common Questions About A Course In Miracles"). I wish you all well on your spiritual journey.

5.0 out of 5 stars Radical, Miraculous and Transformative March 5 2004
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I've read many books that proclaimed to be life changing, but not one really stood up to its claim. This is the single one that has truly transformed my way of looking at life and people and challenges. Its thought system is totally consistent but be prepared for radical changes in your thinking and be prepared for challenges. ACIM is not for the casual reader. It is a book to study and to practice. If you can stick with it, you will be transformed or as the Course might put it, you will rediscover who you always truly were. I have been studying it for ten years, and there aren't enough stars here to click to evaluate it's worth. In our study groups I have yet to encounter anyone who has practiced it for more than a couple of years who wouldn't happily testify to its attitudinal healing and life changing capacity. I hope you find this true for you too, and you will if you are ready.

5.0 out of 5 stars The proof is in the pudding Nov. 23 2003
Format:Paperback
I wish I had been able to find guidance like this when I was going through the rough years of my life from ages 10 to 40.I was in ego mode whose motto always remains, "Seek but do not find." So I never found much real inner peace.
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just a Comment Oct. 15 2003
Format:Hardcover
I have not read this book but I was looking at some reviews and wanted to comment. (The five stars are for the benefit of the doubt) I saw one review where the fellow rated very low based on some family members experiences. He made some comments about the interpretation of the book, second hand mind you, but not ever reading it for himself. He called himself a "Christian", and put down the book by stating it was "New Age Drivel" etc. My only comment about this is concerning somebody who has not read a book and is willing to post a review about it. This is probably more disrespectful and narrow-minded than the accusations toward the book may be. My experience has been that Christianity is about "Loving one another". Isn't that what Jesus commanded? The funny thing is that most professing Christians disobey that commandment daily by damning everybody to hell that doesn't agree with their theology. I am a believer in Jesus Christ myself but it is Christians like this guy who makes the gospel a very unattractive thing for people. I believe that every man, woman and child has been redeemed by Jesus Christ whether they believe it or not. How can the belief in something make it true? If I believe that gravity doesn't exist and I jump off this building, well, you figure out the rest. Doing "ANYTHING", whether it is believing or otherwise promotes self-righteousness and if one is blind to see that, that is a sure sign they suffer from self-righteousness. The bible says it is for freedom that Christ has set you free. Freedom defined is,"Exemption for moral or mortal liability." Evangelical Christianity and the fundamentalists, according to the gospel of Jesus Christ and this short treatise, are heretics.
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.
