What is A Course in Miracles?

A Course In Miracles is:

  • a book, sort of;
  • a channeled work;
  • Jesus’1 instructions for how to be like him;
  • the correction of Christianity and the Bible;
  • gentle, loving, kind, forgiving;
  • a self-study course in spiritual psychotherapy, with Jesus as the therapist;
  • very effective;
  • extremely thorough;
  • the most direct route to a permanently peaceful mind;
  • easy and accessible, requiring only “a little willingness”;
  • unpopular and/or widely misunderstood;
  • unique; it isn’t really like anything else.
