From the Publisher
Gary Renard, author of The Disappearance of the Universe highly recommends this wonderful book!
“This book could very well have been titled “A Lot of Willingness” as I saw in it someone who sought her true path with much determination. The author was inspired by the same light that touched Helen Schucman. As a serious student, dedicated to her quest for finding the truth, her story will inspire those on a similar quest. Like a lighthouse, Making Peace with God will take you on an extraordinary journey that will lead you towards the happy dream, as promised by A Course in Miracles. Stella Pilon, author (The Miracle that Delivered Me from Depression and Suffering)."
Also by Pauline Edward: “The Power of Time: Understanding the Cycles of your Life's Path” and “Astrological Crosses in Relationships”.

Readers cannot help but identify with Edward's vivid, intimate, moving accounts of her "serial adventures" in this world, and eventual plea for a better way of living through forgiveness A Course in Miracles style. Her ability to articulate the Course's metaphysics while applying its mind-healing principles in the classroom of her life will inspire Course students. And her application of forgiveness to a painful, ongoing physical challenge and a difficult, long-term relationship perfectly illustrate the miracle of changing our mind about all we believe would hurt or help us through a new kind of forgiveness that "... merely looks on devastation, and reminds the mind that what it sees is false." A practice that teaches us to gently smile at the fearful images we generate to defend against the eternal, all-inclusive Love we continue to share. Like her subsequent book, Leaving the Desert: Embracing the Simplicity of A Course in Miracles; this is a must read for A Course in Miracles students or anyone curious about its profound, mind-healing message.
Pauline is a very bright and thoughtful person who has a strong thirst for truth that cannot be quenched by anything less than true peace. She takes her readers on the journey with her as she moves through the spiritual buffet line studying one teaching after another including: Numerology, Astrology, Palmistry, Reiki, Flower Essences, Silva Mind Control and more. It is precisely because Pauline has so much in common with so many of us that she makes such a worthwhile companion for her audience.
In Making Peace With God, Pauline is authentic and transparent as she shares her challenges with her marriages and relationships; the intensity of her physical health trials and suffering and even the death of her beloved cat, Bubby. Little by little she moves beyond an intellectual acceptance of the Course teachings and into a true practice of living the teachings. Through it all Pauline deepens, as any dedicated Course student must, in her relationship with the Holy Spirit and her willingness to see clearly increases. Her challenges become breakthroughs and she discovers that peace is already here.
For anyone who struggles with whether or not the teachings of A Course In Miracles and disappearance Of The Universe are true, for anyone who struggles to actually - as I say it, PARTNER UP! with the Holy Spirit - this book will provide encouraging companionship. I recommend Making Peace With God to anyone who would like good company on the path!
I highly recommend "Making Peace with God" to anyone who is on a spiritual journey and seeking a path of non-duality/enlightenment. I always feel that life experiences can be most helpful in assisting to uncover valuable teachings and direction pointers for healing the split mind. I found Pauline's experiences and how she utilized the Course's teachings to be extremely insightful.
Pauline lifts you up to Truth and shows you (through words and acts of forgiveness) how you can find peace even in some of the most difficult and painful situations. If you have ever questioned life and existence and if you have ever wondered if there is a God who loves you and wants you to be truly happy and at peace, then you can benefit from this book. It offers a great dose of insight for all. It's a must read!!
Robyn Busfield, Author of Forgiveness is the Home of Miracles: A Personal Journey through the Workbook of "A Course in Miracles"
In Making Peace with God, author Pauline Edward recounts her trek to the spiritual horizon. The book presents an extensive, intriguing personal story of spiritual exploration that culminates in the discovery of A Course in Miracles. It is a relatable story sure to entertain and inform any authentic spiritual seeker. And it is a story sure to save much time for the spiritual seeker still with an unclear horizon.
But the story doesn't end there... (See my review of Leaving the Desert: Embracing the Simplicity of A Course in Miracles.)
