About the Author

From the Preface of the Course:
[A Course in Miracles] began with the sudden decision of two people to join in a common goal. Their names were Helen Schucman and William Thetford, Professors of Medical Psychology at Columbia University's College of Physicians and Surgeons in New York City. It does not matter who they were, except that the story shows that with God all things are possible. They were anything but spiritual. Their relationship with each other was difficult and often strained, and they were concerned with personal and professional acceptance and status. In general, they had considerable investment in the values of the world. Their lives were hardly in accord with anything that the Course advocates. Helen, the one who received the material, describes herself:

"Psychologist, educator, conservative in theory and atheistic in belief, I was working in a prestigious and highly academic setting. And then something happened that triggered a chain of events I could never have predicted. The head of my department unexpectedly announced that he was tired of the angry and aggressive feelings our attitudes reflected, and concluded that "there must be another way." As if on cue, I agreed to help him find it. Apparently this Course is the other way."
Although their intention was serious, they had great difficulty in starting out on their joint venture. But they had given the Holy Spirit the "little willingness" that, as the Course itself was to emphasize again and again, is sufficient to enable Him to use any situation for His purposes and provide it with His power.

It took me 2 years and 7 months to read it. I walked it out and applied the lessons in each chapter before I moved on to the next. The author was very obedient to God and scripture. Thank you. This should be read by every human!

From my perspective, and I attended a class of The Course for over 10 years, this is my meditation for every day. It gives the old adage "Food for thought" a whole new meaning. I love the message!

This is one of the books that I value so much, and love to read different parts over and over in stretches of time. However, if you are not spiritual and cannot get into reading books of that nature it may not be for you. But, I love my Miracles books, I am so happy to see Dr. Schucman's name on this book, the contents of this book was given to this lovely lady from the Spirit of Jesus, and it was I believe published after her death as I am sure many of her colleagues would have ridiculed her. But, people have a way of tearing people whom they perceive as a threat, don't we all see that throughout our history. I will treasure this book my entire life. Dr. Schucman was a professor at Columbia University and my utmost gratitude to her talent and love, and sharing this with everyone who is willing to read and to have an open mind about the spirits we are, whether in body or not. Enjoy

There are parts of passages missing and I now wonder if most of what I'm reading is correct. I hope the publisher will correct these soon as it does no one any good to read the wrong text.

It does not make sence and the therory contradicts itself saying that there is no such thing as sin and yet it keeps talking about forgiveness. If there is no sin what do you need forgiveness for?
