Format: Paperback
I am glad I purchased this book over the others I looked at. I found it very useful. It moved me away from a strictly Marianne Williamson perspective on ACM. I began to understand the Course in its broader context. Also, upon reading this book, I believe I could have studied the Course or become involved in a study group- easily keeping up to speed. Ultimately, a few weeks later, I went on ACM beginners weekend. I did learn a bit more on the weekend and decided that full-fledged commitment to the beliefs of ACM were not for me. This book is a great intro into the main text, history of and perhaps breaking any pre-conceived notions you might have about ACM. I still go back to the various writers and text at times to read about forgiveness and love. I am a member of my local Quaker group today.

Understand A Course In Miracles 8 Jun. 2008
By Rev. Mary Beth Olson - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a fabulous overview of exactly what the Course is all about. As a teacher of the Course for 25 years, I have seen to it that all my present students have read and discussed this book in our group meetings. I particularly liked the revision of the original "The Complete Story of A Course in Miracles," especially beginning in Chapter 3. There was much additional information that was extremely helpful to both new and old students of the Course. I would highly recommend it be read by all new students before entering into any study of the Course itself. If I had been able to use this specific book as an introduction to the Course, it would have made entry as a student so much easier. I'm always grateful for all of Patrick Miller's writings, but this one is a "keeper" for all time.

Excellent book 11 May 2008
By Dr. C. H. Roberts - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Anyone interested in learning about A Course in Miracles immediately faces two challenges: first, reading the book itself, and second, sorting through the variety of teachers and organizations that promote ACIM. Patrick Miller has done a great service in writing this book. It contains both a highly readable, easy to understand summary of what ACIM says, and it also has a brief and objective guide to many of the teachers and organizations that you are likely to encounter in the ACIM community. One of the book's strength is the even handed interaction that Miller has with traditional Christians who have objected to the Course's teachings. Although the book is an expansion of Miller's previous The Complete Story of the Course, it really is a different book, and I recommend that you add both titles to your wish list. Pat Miller is to be congratulated for giving the world one of the best introductions to A Course in Miracles. Thanks Patrick!

Understanding A Course in Miracles 17 July 2008
By S. K. Dubel - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is brilliant for understanding ACIM. Well written, and presented fairly and intelligently. Along with Gary Renard's books, 'disappearance of the universe' and 'Your Immortal Reality', and 'Take Me To Truth' by Nouk Sanchez and Tomas Viera, it almost feels like ACIM for Dummies. Having been at this for years, it is such a relief to have Miller's book for the explanation, Renard's books for the primers that shake up your world and prepare you for ACIM, and then the Sanchez-Viera book to actually have you walk through it and experience it in the world, the only place where it matters.

Further Understanding and Application 16 Oct. 2012
By Morning Star - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have been a student of the Course In Miracles since 1986. This book has assisted me in a greater relationship with the writngs and a wonderful tool for the application of the wisdom in the Course. I highly recommend this book to Course students, and those who are simply curious about the Course, it is a great partner to the book, and I find the author to be well versed in his own experience with A Course In Miracles. A great spiritual uplift, and compliment to the dedicated student. Thanks for this opportunity.

An excellent book 12 Oct. 2014

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I have been a serious student of ACIM since about 1977, and I find this book to be the most balanced critique of any I've come across.
