Fabulous content - if you can understand it
on 20 February 2013
Oh, how I'd love to write a rave review of this book! I know that the contect - once you have ruminated, cogitated, translated and digested it - is sound and profound. But in parts it is almost incomprehensible. The lessons in the 'Workbook for Students', are mostly readable, but the rest of the book can be very challenging to make sense of - not least because it is written in the style of language that would have been prevalent over 2000 years ago.
This is not a book that most people would read comfortably cover to cover, but then it is probably not a book most people would be attracted to in the first place. Personally I have it bedside and dip into it from time to time, when most times I do gain something valuable from it, but it does take a bit of patience and perseverence.
Whilst I wouldn't go as far as to say "Don't buy this book", I have learnt recently that other books have been written that outline the messages from ACIM in more modern, accessible language. Anyone considering buying this book might want to 'Look Inside' and do a bit of research on the alternatives first.
