Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

This book is based on Williamson's discovery of A Course in Miracles , a self-help guide whose provenance she doesn't explain. Age 26 at the time and feeling lost and desperate after indulging in the excesses of the 1960s, the Jewish author had no real hope for inspiration from the course because of its Christian terminology. But, she writes in this guide to the guide, the program works "miracles" for herself and for others who adopt its principles. Her extrapolations may appeal to readers in need of spiritual sustenance, but one questions Williamson's advice to the gravely ill. When she encourages them, for example, to "write a letter to AIDS or cancer or whatever illness they might have, and tell it everything they feel"--even to fabricate "replies" from the disease--readers are likely to consider that a serious situation is trivialized. Williamson is founder and president of the Los Angeles and Manhattan Center for Living, a support service. BOMC alternate; author tour.

From Library Journal

This book is based on the author's experiences as a teacher and lecturer on the self-study guide A Course in Miracles (Foundation for Inner Peace, 1975), the students of which attribute its authorship to Jesus Christ. Using humorous personal narrative, Williamson explains how applying love to all difficulties, as advised by "The Course," can aid in healing. Some may find the theories and practices presented here somewhat off-putting (e.g., Williamson counsels people with AIDS to write letters to the disease, rather than use fear and hatred to fight it). However, New Age followers or fans of Gerald Jampolsky ( One Person Can Make a Difference , LJ 11/1/90) or Louise Hay ( You Can Heal Your Life , Hay House, 1984) will enjoy this title. Purchase by demand. Previewed in Prepub Alert, LJ 10/1/91.

Format: Paperback
Ignore the 11/13/02 review by the closed-minded Christian Science snob! A Return to Love will change your life if you are open minded. You need not be a student of A Course in Miracles to be transformed by this book, though if you don't consider yourself a spiritual person, this might not be the best book for you, since it deals so much with the presence of (God as) Love in our lives. I read it long before I got involved in religion and metaphysics and I was and still am very moved by it. This is a book about the healing and transforming power of Love and how to practice it in your daily life. Ms. Williamson has been-there-done-that and her intelligent and very hip writing style is far from preachy. I've read it over and over since the 1980's and it gets better every time. Can't recommend it highly enough!

There are only six books you need to read to turn your life around and start living a more joyful, abundant and peaceful life...this is the one to start with. Then move on to Conversations With God, book 1, book 2 & book 3 and then to Depak 's How to Know God and end with The Seat of The Soul. There you have it...the truth of it all in six books...the rest on the subject of life are variations on the same theme. These six sum it up. Return to Love will do just that...return you to love, if you dare follow it's teachings and desire such a joy filled life.

For those looking to look within to your higher self of spiritual development. I Love how Marianne describes different ways to find real divine love is to not live life in the way we look at life as we have been for decades. Remove our false reality of self. Shedding your darkness of thoughts to light and love. Let go of our ego and open up to our heart pain from life so we can move forward into peace and love as Marianne described the true essence of God Love. I highly recommend this book to the true love in the spiritual light of life. Religion was not part of the story of love.

I first came upon this Audio book about 8 years ago, and have yet to find an Audio book that reaches as deep into you as this one does. A Return to Love is a great Book, but it is a truly incredible Audio book! The tone of her voice, and the way it's spoken is so PERFECT, that you hear every word, and feel she is talking directly to "YOU"! I have listened to 100's of Audio books over the years, and STILL have not found anything close to this one. Deepak, Millman, Lucado, Dyers, Bach and as much as I hate to say it, even Mariannes other audios don't hold the magic this one does. If someone has found an audio that gets as deep into your soul as this one does, PLEASE write me and let me know what it is.
If you have not listened to this audio book yet, and are looking for some spiritual enlightenment, you have no idea what your missing out on here! Buy the Tape, even if you have read the book!!! Time and time again, I have gone back and listened to this tape, and it never loses a bit of the magic I felt the first time I heard it. This Audio will remind you of so much you have forgotten through the years. The best Audio book I have EVER, EVER listened too!
I have given these Tapes out many, many times as gifts to friends and got many people to listen to them, and I have yet to come across anyone that is not entirely blown away and touched deeply by them. This is an Audio Book you will listen to AGAIN, AND AGAIN AND AGAIN. ~~~~~ "MARIANNE, PLEASE DO AN UNABRIDGED VERSION OF THIS AUDIO BOOK!!!!"

Marianne Williamson has for years been a source of comfort I've been able to reflect upon over the years. I got all of the audio cassettes of her speeches and A Course In Miracles and the tapes of that. I remember exactly how I came upon this book---Oprah was interviewing Ivana Trump and Ivana said something about her pain and turmoil over the divorce from The Donald, Oprah recommended it to her and I took my last $20 until payday and went out and got this book.
It changed my life because it agreed with my own thoughts about the universe. Not because it was so revolutionary but because I had thought these thoughts before and thats what lead me to the Course.
Neither this book nor the Course is ultimately easy to digest. You must change your mind. About Time, Space, the Body and Death existing and all of the precepts we place upon that thoughtform. What I like about ARTL is that it opens this whole thought in a way that is accessible to someone before you tackle the Course. The Course is such an intense book, the spiritual lessons so different from normal spiritual lessons that there does need to be a primer of sorts and entrance into it. Are there others? Wapnick, Gawain, yes. But Marianne gives you the feeling that she's sat on the same barstool you have, dated the same jerk you did, endured the dysfunctional parents you did.
And if you listen to the tapes of her live, she'll admit that yes, she has all of the above and more! Marianne is a hoot and a half and at the same time she GETS IT! There's a separation on the Earth of folks who get it and those who don't. Is that enlightenment? Of Perception? Yes, I think it is a step in teh right direction.
