Taken from the original manuscript for the course, the only editing that has been done to this great spiritual classic has been to correct occasional typographic and spelling errors and to render capitalization and punctuation consistent.
A Course in Miracles (ACIM) – the self-study spiritual-thought system that teaches the way to love and forgiveness – has captivated the minds and captured the hearts of millions of people. Delivering inner peace where fear and pain once prevailed, its universal message is unsurpassed in its power to heal. Yet many students report that they have difficulty grasping the principles or keeping up with the lessons. So even while they yearn for the spiritual freedom the Course offers, they put the book aside, hoping to get to it one day. Alan Cohen, ACIM student and teacher for more than 30 years, takes the big-picture ideas of the Course and brings them down to earth in 22 concise, easy-to-understand chapters. Featuring entertaining examples, stories, and real-life applications, this unique, reader-friendly guide will prove invaluable to longtime ACIM students and newcomers alike. A Course in Miracles Made Easy is the Rosetta stone that will open doors for you to understand the Course and use it to generate practical, healing results in your life.
This volume contains the original "Course in Miracles" text, as well as the "Course for Miracles for Teachers" and "The 360 Lessons."
A Course in Miracles Urtext Manuscripts is a collection of all seven canonical volumes of the world renowned Third Testament under one cover. It represents the oldest available typed copy of the words dictated by a voice to professor, research psychologist and Scribe Helen Schucman, Ph.D. between 1965 and 1978. The voice, claimed Schucman, was Jesus. This edition predates all others currently in print. It is available in two cover styles, one plain burgundy and another with a painting The Resurrection by Pieter Lastman, made available by the Getty Museum in Los Angeles, CA, USA. There is a free companion website with concordances and source material libraries. An optional 4.5 Gb/DVD containing an enhanced edition of the website, concordances, over 10,000 pages of source material, a synthesized audio reading of the 31 chapter text and several editions of the King James Bible is available in some editions. The Urtext Manuscripts include extensive discussions of the Bible, sex, possession, Freud and other topics which were edited out of other editions. There are over 2400 footnotes to references on variant ACIM readings and Bible verses. The book also includes extensive appendices with commentary on the versions and history of A Course in Miracles by the compiler of this remarkable edition, Doug Thompson. The Urtext Manuscripts are ideal for students and teachers who wish to deepen their knowledge of A Course in Miracles and its unique approach to life and the teachings of the Bible. This edition seeks not to be the final rendition of A Course in Miracles, but rather one giant leap toward the greater goal of getting the words right. In that light, the reader may expect future editions to contain updates in textual scholarship, biblical references, appendices, added indexing, DVD contents and more."
The great classic work, A Course in Miracles, is devoted to teachings about who we are, our relationships to God and with each other, and the actually mental nature of our bodies and the world. There are three constituent parts to the Course: The Text, a Workbook for Students, and the Manual for Teachers. The Text lays out the theoretical foundation for the metaphysical system of the Course. The Workbook contains a series of 365 Lessons to be practiced daily for the purpose of retraining the mind and healing our perception. Finally, the Manual contains information for and about advanced teachers of God. A Course in Miracles is also about miracles, which students understand to be, in part, a shift in perception to healed vision. But miracles are more than a shift in perception, because the shift has consequences in the world as we see it. The conversational tone of this Original Edition invites the novice student into conversation with the Author, and even advanced students of A Course in Miracles have found a new clarity and a deeper understanding from their study of the Original Edition of the Course. The restoration of the previously lost material and presentation ofthe text in its original sequence enlivens the conversation with the Author and gives him a presence that some feel is lacking in the later editions. When encountering Schucman and Thetford's original edition, students frequently find fresh clarity as they read its wording or new understanding. Surely study of the Original Edition is essential to your curriculum.
The text of A Course in Miracles (ACIM) is difficult and mystifying for most readers. Both teachers and students struggle for many years with little success in unlocking the secrets to understanding this Course. They often abandon their studies and end up confused and discouraged. This ACIM for Dummies series cuts thorough the mystery of the Course's esoteric text and makes Jesus' message alive and accessible to the ordinary reader. The richness and simplicity of ACIM's message of freedom, joy and unconditional love awaits anyone who is willing to see things differently. The Course states that “Perception is a mirror, not a fact.” Once decoded, it provides the formula that transforms and empowers the reader so that they are both free and capable of seeing things differently. You can exchange your fear-based thought system for the peace of God. Happiness is only a choice away and you can make that choice today. This is your time to shine.ACIM uses a unique terminology that references two different levels of being that are dominated by two opposing thought systems. This book demystifies the text by replacing the pronouns and unclear references with their meanings and clarifies the appropriate level associated with each passage. All antecedent references made to ACIM's second edition are clearly noted in bold print for easy reference to the original text. Each text paragraph is then followed by an explanatory note to assist the reader in their own interpretation of the paragraph. These notes are designed to foster discussion and clarity, not to limit ideas and prevent individual interpretation. As such, ACIM for Dummies can be utilized as either a primary or secondary text for independent or group study. ACIM for Dummies is an excellent reference tool for those who seek a deeper level of understanding of the Course's teachings. This edition, A COURSE IN MIRACLES FOR DUMMIES: Volume I covers the text chapters #1-15.The complete edition of A COURSE IN MIRACLES FOR DUMMIES version covers the entire ACIM text which consists of 31 chapters. Because of publishing size restrictions, it is sold in paperback as two separate volumes. Volume I covers Chapters #1-15 of ACIM's text. Volume II covers Chapters #16-31 of ACIM's text.

ACIM for Dummies is invaluable to clarify what various words refer to. For me the "notes" are more than worth the price of this book and could easily serve to support individual study or be the focus for a group discussion. I facilitated a group for 18 years in Colorado and am enthused about starting another group using ACIM for Dummies!” B. Kent“I bought A Course in Miracles for Dummies and I cannot believe how wonderful it is and easy to understand ACIM! Sorry for my spelling in English as I am Spanish.” F. Perez-Chies “I have been studying A Course in Miracles for a number of years without much success in truly understanding what I was reading. Then I came across ACIM for Dummies and began to understand the meaning behind the words. It has helped me to accept myself and everyone I meet with love and respect and most importantly, I have learned to "honor their journey." It has been a wonderful way to understand and interpret for myself the beautiful words of Jesus.” N. Harwood“I've had over 20+ years experience working with ACIM. Tom's insightful writing of ACIM for Dummies has certainly shed some valuable new light on some of the more difficult passages. Tom is skilled at articulating the beautiful messages being transmitted throughout ACIM. Definitely a piece of work to have at your right hand while studying ACIM.” T. Rice

In this fascinating book, Gary R. Renard and his Ascended Master teachers, Arten and Pursah, guide you through a way of dissolving the illusions of time and space and returning to Reality, which is Perfect Love. This is not love in the way the world commonly thinks of it. It's an all-encompassing kind of love that is perfect spirit: innocent, unflawed, immortal, invulnerable, and forever fearless. Real love, which is Divine in nature, must be experienced, for it is beyond words. Yet words and practice are needed to help lead you to that experience. The knowledge of what it's like to be one with your Source is the awesome mystical experience that's been described by Masters throughout the ages. It's the greatest sense of awareness anyone can have while still appearing to be in this world. This book will teach you exactly how to get to that experience, which upon the end of your physical existence will become your permanent reality. You will find that, indeed, love has forgotten no one.

It expresses a universal experience, and its underlying ontology is reminiscent of ancient refrains, echoing the world's most hallowed traditions.
