For more than 30 years, Williamson, a student and teacher of the spiritual “discipline” called A Course in Miracles, has been distilling the guide’s dense texts for a general audience. Her seminal piece, A Return to Love (1992), remains a classic of spirituality writing, and in subsequent books, she has used parts of that original volume to show how the Course can be applied to such diverse problems as reshaping America and even losing weight. Here the task is to explain how the Course’s core principles—everything but love is an illusion, and letting go of fear and shifting one’s trust into a loving state produce miracles—apply to people who are broke and broken. Williamson’s easy, caring writing style makes almost anything seem possible, and here it is used to best advantage to rethink issues about why people continue to have doubts even under the best of financial conditions. The take here is that while today’s circumstances make it easy to believe in scarcity rather than abundance, in spirit there is never a lack of possibility. The rest of the book goes on to “prove” this is true and offer ways to incorporate more positive thinking into one’s life. Fans will appreciate this approach; unbelievers will scoff; but those in the middle, given Williamson’s gentle power of persuasion, might say, “It can’t hurt.” HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Most of Williamson’s books have been best-sellers, and she’s a familiar media face who knows how to attract an audience. --Ilene Cooper
