Format: Paperback
Subtitled "A Companion to The Workbook of The Course," JBW distills the lessons of the Course's Workbook section down to their purest essences and presents them in a series of chapters that parallel the "daily" format of the Workbook.
Combining about 6 to 8 lessons of the Workbook into sections with such headings as: "Holiness," "Happiness," "Oneness," "The Kingdom of God," and "The Ego," etc., Journey Beyond Words condenses the somewhat discursive approach of A Course In Miracles into sharp, focused sentences that does away with, what many students of the Course consider to be the, at times, opaque, almost baroque, language of the original, dictated work.
As stated in the Introduction, the purpose of JBW is to get the sincere students of the Course past the idea that they are are to "learn" anything, especially in the analytical, academic sense, but rather to experience for themselves the Truth and Reality that the words of the Course can only hint at, or at best, point to. "Lived," not "learned," is the rallying cry and the leitmotif of the entire work.
As a text, this is Advaita (non-duality) at its top-notch, comparable to the "best" of Ramana, Nisargadatta, the Yoga Vashistha, etc. Pure, non-dual Reality (God) comes through every chapter and page. An exhilarating, liberating experience awaits those who seek to move beyond mere arid and intellectual categories and concepts and plunge into the "living water" of Jesus' revelation.

Format: Paperback
Since this book was initially intended to be a study guide for "A Course In Miracles", there is a tendency think that to buy this book would require an involvment with the Course. On the cover it is clearly labled as "A Companion to The Workbook of The Course" and is also designated as "A Miracles Studies Book". As a result I feel that this book has not yet reached a wide enough audience. This book and one that came after "The Other Voice" are more than just adjuncts to the Course.
The speaker of these teachings, Jeshua (Jesus), uses the word "extension" to denote the difference between the true Creation of God and the world that we experience, which he says comes from projection, an activity of the ego, and therefore not true creation. Extension is God's expression of His Love. The word informs us of the profoundly important fact that True Creation can in no way be anything that is outside of God. All creation must be simply God extending Him/Herself. That means that if all True Creation is simply God, and God is omnipotent and omnipresent, then all True Creation must be the extension of That. And God's Will, by definition, must be perfect, so there can be NO will in Creation that is separate or opposed to That Will. Think about the implications of that. Then get this book.
My life and intention has been irreversibly changed by this material. It is more than just a clarification of previous material. I believe that it can be thought of as an "extension" of the Course, in the larger meaning of that word. It is the profound Love of the Course extended in Love.

My friend Fifi and I have been students of ACIM for several years. She stumbled across JBW and let me borrow it. She is usually very generous with her books but would NOT allow me to highlight this one. So I ordered my own through Amazon.com. After being "in my head" for so long with ACIM, JBW is like a breath of fresh air. Brent Haskell has brought a down to earthness to the Course and everything now seems so refreshingly simple with examples of practical application that bring about instant..."Ahas" and lots and lots of laughter. This is a brilliant work on ACIM and I heartily recommend it.

Format: Paperback
There are many spiritual books in the market today, most of which contain contradictory information about the nature of the universe, the nature of man, and the nature of God. However, this book is perhaps the most hopeful and truthful message I have come across in my spiritual journey so far. The language is clear, simple, and easy to understand -- enough to get a layperson such as myself started on the inner journey very quickly. The message itself is one of hope and promise -- that we are all one and that the universe, including ourselves, is a single undivided whole that we can experience with the help of God. This book is refreshingly free of the cultural and gender bias that is present in many "new age" books today.
This book is highly recommended for those looking for a positive path to daily living.

If you are "A Course In Miracles" student, this is the clearest (and most profound) book I've found on this material. And if you're not familiar with the Course but wish to be introduced to the Course's basic principles in an elegant way, look no further. My most cherished book (next to the Course) in my rather extensive spiritual collection.
