Product Description

Product Description

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 is the complete edition of A COURSE IN MIRACLES FOR DUMMIES. It 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.

What instructors and students are saying around the world about the clarity and ease of understanding that is found in A Course in Miracles for Dummies.
“This book provides an insightful student of the Course assistance in understanding the Text's passages. 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

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent tool for group or individual study 18 Mar 2011
By Kelvin B. Kent - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book provides an insightful student of the Course assistance in understanding some of the Text's passages. Having studied the Course for over 25 years, reading of the Text may seem tedious at times, but for the most part, ACIM for Dummies is invaluable to clarify what various words refer to. For me the "notes" are more than worth the price of this ebook 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! It left me hoping for an expanded version that includes the Workbook and Manual for Teachers.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Tool for Making Your Way Thru The Course 27 Nov 2012
By Stephanie Goddard - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The only criticism I have of this work is that there are errors in almost every original entry from the author.

First, the part that is really helpful. This book provides the actual text from The Course, but ensures reader comprehension by carrying the subject through the paragraph vs. substituting pronouns. For instance, an excerpt might read originally this way:

"Yes, you are blessed indeed. 2 Yet in this world you do not know that. 3 But you have the means for learning this quite clearly,"

Then Wakefield's book would have it as, "Yes, you are blessed indeed. 2 Yet in this world you do not know that you are blessed indeed. 3 But you have the means for learning that you are blessed indeed and seeing that you are blessed indeed quite clearly," which is very helpful considering the tone and structure of ACIM.

Next, Wakefield provides a more common interpretation after the text. But the translation using common language, does have at least one error in every entry. I've become an amateur editor making a game of finding the error(s)! These errors aren't typos. They are things like 'The' instead of 'They' or 'Image' instead of 'Imagine'. It's easy enough to maneuver around, but it does lower the credibility of the entire work, and that's a shame. Here is one I just pulled at random:

"Because we do not realize our true nature, we do not even attempt to test our capability of dong a given task."

Wakechild, Thomas (2011-03-02). A Course In Miracles for Dummies (Kindle Locations 15373-15374). Bay West Centre LLC. Kindle Edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Course In Miracles For Dummies 23 Mar 2011
By michael willingham - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a GREAT tool. Every student of ACIM will want this. The author has made an exhaustive effort with this amplification of the course. As we all know, ACIM is multi-level and can sometimes be difficult to understand. In the tradition of the "Dummies" books, this is a wonderful help to my study.... Highly recommended.
