Customer Reviews

I had heard much about A Course in Miracles.
Prosperity Girl
This 'Introduction' book is a very easy to understand overview of the 'Course' theory and therefore, in my opinion, it would help to read it before venturing further.
Mr. Roy Wilkinson
The book has helped me tame my emotions and live my life with more awareness.

When my 3-vol. book "A Course in Miracles" arrived, I eagerly began reading the Text, and after finishing the first chapter, was also sampling parts of the Workbook for Students as well as the Manual for Teachers. Seeing great promise in all of this and wanting it all immediately would provide much more frustration than I was already feeling because "A Course in Miracles" is long, and presented in small methodical steps which also induces much soul-searching. All very wonderful, but time consuming, and when one is hungering for a "quick fix" or wondering where it'll all lead to, it gets your head spinning. So two days later when my copy of "An Introduction to A Course in Miracles" arrived, I read it cover to cover and now feel very satisfied! This short book could stand on it's own, giving a very readable and easily understandable synopsis of the Course which made me feel more in tune with what I had already read, and more ready to be able to start applying its' ideas now. I know that I'll be keeping the "Introduction to ..." right with the "Course ..." because I'll want to reread it periodically to take a break from the more intense work of the text, and to keep a lighter overview of it in mind! It already has been, and I'm sure will be a 'sanity saver' for me!

Format: Paperback
I have found this book very helpful in being something of a brief over-view of "A Course In Miracles." I have given this book to three people, all as an attempt to "explain" what the Course is (as opposed to wanting to "convince" them to read the Course). None of the people I gave this book to ended up becoming students of the Course (not that I know of - one friend has remained skeptical of the Course [if not verging on hostile]), but they at least had a little "mental slot" for what the Course is. They at least knew what I was talking about when I said "The Course says..."
The Course is a very complex theory of spiritual psychotherapy that can at times be overwhelming even for "students" (to be a student simply means you read the book). So, how then does one explain the "basis" for what the Course is to a non-student? Why, they give them this book.
Now, if one is a student of the Course I would suggest going beyond - far beyond - this book and turning to the work of Kenneth and Gloria Wapnick. But if one is simply curious as to what the Course is, and where it came from, I would recommend reading this book. I'm sure you will find it as helpful and brief - very brief! - as I did. And the price is very nice.

I have given out dozens of copies of this book over the last few years and the book has always been gratefully received. A Course says there is no order of difficulty in miracles. This brief book is the best simple introductory work on A Course available and a bridge to those of my friends who want to know what I am studying (I am a student of A Course) but who do not feel they have the time for an in depth treatment of the subject. A "must read" for any student of A Course and for inquirers at all levels. Buy several copies to have available to give to your friends. You'll be glad you did. Highly recommended.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As you may be aware 'A Course in Miracles' is not an easy read but well, well worth reading. The definition of words within the 'Course' do not always have the same definition that we associate with our normal use of language or indeed with some of the usual Christian definitions. 'A Course in Miracles' is a 1200 page work in three parts. The text, the theory of the Course, is in the region of 666 pages of challenging reading so, this little book is a friend well worth consulting. This 'Introduction' book is a very easy to understand overview of the 'Course' theory and therefore, in my opinion, it would help to read it before venturing further. It is an enlightening read and I definitely recommend it. Another recommendation, would be to read a very good book 'A Return to Love' Reflections on the Principles of A Course in Miracles; by Marianne Williamson who is incidently, if you do not know, a well known international lecturer on 'The Course' and has written a number of other related books. The 'Introduction to A course in Miracles' is an ideal starter, well worth reading.

Format: Paperback
I first "discovered" the voluminous ACIM and the slim "An Introduction to A Course in Miracles" in 1996 when "Introduction to ACIM" was still published as "by Robert Perry", the author.

For anyone who wants a broad overview of ACIM, "An Introduction" is the place to begin. In the last 10 years I have read many books, pamphlets, web pages and more dealing with ACIM. "An Introduction" still remains No.1 on my list of ACIM primers.

I usually purchase several (even a dozen) copies at a time to have on hand to give to friends or others who express interest (positive, negative or betwixt) in ACIM. "Introduction" is well and simply written, addresses a variety of topics about ACIM (including it's primary principles and provenance), and is a relatively easy read (great for airplane trips--as long as you're not the pilot).

ACIM is not everyone's "cup of char". "An Introduction" will probably help you decide if the tea of ACIM is suitable for your humble clay cup.

Namaste!
