About the Author
The story of the Course began when, in the midst of an academic environment of savage competition and negative attitudes, Dr. William T. Thetford decided he had had enough and declared to his colleague, Dr. Helen Schucman, "There must be another way, and I'm determined to find it." Schucman vowed to help him. What ensued was a dramatic progression of waking dreams for Schucman, which culminated in her experiencing a voice which spoke clearly in her mind. With Thetford's support and assistance in transcribing her shorthand notes and later editing the completed transcription, Schucman took down over a period of seven years some 1,500 typewritten pages which became A Course in Miracles. Jesus' Course in Miracles is an accurate replication of the earliest edition of the Course.
