Overview

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 of  the 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 Thetfordâ€â&quo;¢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.

There were multiple versions of original edition of ACIM available for Nook. I wanted to get the complete set, which included the workbook for students and the teacher's manual. Because the description of this particular version talks about the three parts and was the most expensive version, I purchased this one, thinking it contained all three parts. Alas this is not the case, and only has the text. Save yourself $ and buy the $4.99 version of the original text which has a better font (IMO) or the Whitecrow publishers version, which does have all three parts.

A Course in Miracles is an interpretation of spirituality and is too immense for me to try to explain in this review. If the idea of "there is only love and fear; God is pure love and that is all that is Real" strikes you as interesting, then by all means - check out the 365 ACIM workbook lessons. If not, then ACIM is probably not for you. Personally, I am a fan, and it's what I try to read every morning for inspiration. Okay, now that's out of the way, let me get to the point of my review: I ABSOLUTELY LOVE HAVING A COURSE IN MIRACLES ON MY NOOK! When I forget to read it or need an extra little pick-me-up, there it is. Plus ... the "last page read" aspect of an ereader is perfect for perfect. So - speaking to those who already know and use ACIM - I say ... get the e-version. In fact, I would recommend getting an e-copy of whatever your spiritual guide book is, if you haven't already.

I've been using this book for over a year. It is the most gentle loving and profound guide i've ever had for getting to the peace and love that is God. This has a text and a workbook ....really its more of a simple day by day meditation..... that changes the way you look at life & brings you closer to God. It doesn't contradict anything in the Bible. I love the electronic version to take with me & i love the book version cause I love to look at the dates & highlighted areas and see how far I've come in my journey. My electronic version is the original text & my hard copy is the edited version. The edited version is prolly the best one for a new reader as it has less personal information about the author & as a result is alittle more clear initally.

Been a sudent since 1985. This set of books, as stated above, is not the only course of miracles, that's why it's named "A" and not "Thy Course in Mircales. I had great desirer for this Heavenly new thought system, I get goose bumps just hearing or reading the title. I also had the ability, and still do, being to understand and read it as if I was reading a "Dick n Jane" book. ACIM is the greatest gift to planet earth since the birth of "CHRIST", n his resurrection, period. You too will be reborn, but you must have desire , n to rid yourself of pain n dispair, and to be willing to find out who is causing all this pain n torment in your life, because ACIMs is going to explain it in great detail so it will Never happen again. After you accept or atleast have a will to end all pain and suffering, in you life, you WILL now be heading at LIGHT speed towards everything your Bible has promissed, LOVE, PEACE and JOY. There will be no turning back. Follow the lessions, after reading the text to get a understanding first ,so you can set your goal toJOY n LOVE. One more thing, don't even glance at the lessions untill you do what I just suggested. Best yet, start by reading the book titled, " A Journey Without Distance", author Hellen S. n Bill T . Always start at the beginning. God Bless. Paul R.
