Overview

The first comprehensive guide to studying A Course in Miracles, for readers at all levels of experience.

The channeled writings of A Course in Miracles have touched millions of lives. And yet ACIM can be surprisingly difficult to navigate. From its often complex concepts about the nature of the ego, reality, and love; to the many intense, surprising, personal changes it can bring into readers' lives, ACIM presents a challenge for even the most motivated students.

Now D. Patrick Miller-the leading historical chronicler of ACIM and a highly respected authority on its teachings-provides the definitive how-to manual for engaging with ACIM. His guide distills years of hard-won insights and helps students navigate the sometimes intense experience.

Living with Miracles is designed to make even the novice comfortable when approaching ACIM. Miller leads the reader through the most common emotions, reactions, and questions that arise when studying ACIM; provides insights and tips about pacing yourself, as well as when and how to take breaks from study; and gives advice on working through early misconceptions and difficult later stages. He also provides useful, absorbing historical material, stories from practitioners around the world who reflect honestly on their experiences, and a resources section with ideas for those looking to continue their study of this remarkable spiritual teaching.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
A Course in Miracles (ACIM) is a fascinating, popular, and hotly debated phenomenon in contemporary religion, received as a kind of spirit communication by Helen Schucman from the mid-1960s through early 1970s and first published in 1976. It has functioned as a kind of supplement to the Christian Bible. Its best-known exponent now is Marianne Williamson, but as ever there is debate about the meaning of the message and its best messengers. Miller (Old Testament theology, emeritus, Princeton Theological Seminary; Understanding A Course in Miracles) is now the de facto "authorized" historian of the movement. Less a guide to that ambiguous text than a companion to the practice of reading it, Miller's book offers many stories as evidence of its beneficial effect in users' lives. VERDICT Although apt to be frustrating to those new to ACIM, Miller's book is an intriguing new chapter in the progress of this new offshoot of Christian spirituality; excellent for its students.
