Overview

The essential guide to one of the most influential spiritual works ever written.
In 1976, a mysterious “Inner Voice” called out to a woman named Helen Schucman, dictating a system of belief that ultimately became A Course in Miracles. This book, totaling 1,333 pages, went on to sell more than two million copies around the world. Its lessons are meant to be digested one at a time; those who study ACIM do so over years, often struggling to progress through its resonant but difficult-to-comprehend truths.

Jon Mundy-who knew the Course's founders and the text from the very beginning-is the perfect guide to the book's central tenets. Using passages from ACIM, he illuminates its teachings on such subjects as the self, forgiveness, desire, health, money, addiction, and the afterlife. Through Jon's lively storytelling and in-depth knowledge of the Course's wisdom, readers gain wisdom that might otherwise have taken them a lifetime to grasp.

    Jon's best book so far

    Jon writes the way he does because he's been there and done that. This book is easy to read and the many truths that we all know just jump right off the pages. To know The Course in Miracles and to live it are often times two different things. Jon's been involved with ACIM since the beginning. He knew Helen and Bill personally. He's still friends with Ken and Judy. He has all the credentials. Jon Mundy knows A Course in Miracles as well as anyone on this earth. Jon has lived an extraordinary life and has experienced far more than most. I'm so glad I know him and I thank him for his efforts often. Read this book, it may be just what you've been searching for. The way Jon talks makes everything more understandable. God Bless, Tracy D Small, Denver, Co

    Highly Recommended!

    Jon Mundy knows A Course in Miracles backwards and forwards, and was in on its inception, having been friends with scribe Helen Schucman. Jon's writing style is clear and concise and he brings the Course to life with easy-to-relate-to examples. He simplifies tough topics so anyone can comprehend them. Jon is down to earth and you can feel his peaceful, joyous approach to life through his straightforward writing.

    Newcomers to A Course in Miracles should definitely read Jon's book, as it will save them much time in grasping and applying the Course to their lives. People who have studied the Course for years will also gain many insights and ways to live the Course.

    Highly Recommended - a guide to peaceful living!

    For those who have not picked up the Course in Miracles, Jon Mundy's book is a guide to peaceful living. For newcomers, it is a guide to understanding the teachings of the Course. For long-time practitioners, Jon's book provides down-to-earth reminders of how to live the Course. This book's usefulness doesn't stop with reading it from cover-to-cover; it can be opened randomly on a daily basis for helpful nudges.

    This is a spiritual masterpiece! It is a brilliantly written and superbly organized book for serious students/teachers of ACIM. And for those who are not yet serious, it most certainly will encourage and guide them to follow the teachings of ACIM. This book has the potential to transform lives.
