Preface – Text – Workbook for Students – Manual for Teachers – Clarification of Terms – Supplements
This Combined Volume of A Course in Miracles
is the only edition that contains in one place all of the writings that Dr. Helen Schucman, its Scribe, authorized to be printed. It also includes the Supplements to A Course in Miracles
, Psychotherapy: Purpose, Process and Practice
and The Song of Prayer
. These sections are extensions of the Course principles, which were dictated to Dr. Schucman shortly after she completed A Course in Miracles
As its title implies, A Course in Miracles
, a self-study program, is arranged throughout as a teaching device. It consists of three books: a 669-page Text, a 478-page Workbook for Students, and an 88-page Manual for Teachers. The order in which students choose to use the books, and the ways in which they study them, depend on their particular needs and preferences.
The curriculum the Course proposes is carefully conceived and is explained, step by step, at both the theoretical and practical levels. It emphasizes application rather than theory, and experience rather than theology. It specifically states that “a universal theology is impossible, but a universal experience is not only possible but necessary.” (Manual, p. 77) Although Christian in statement, the Course deals with universal spiritual themes. It emphasizes that it is but one version of the universal curriculum. There are many others, this one differing from them only in form. They all lead to God in the end.
A Course in Miracles
in its complete form is published solely by the Foundation for Inner Peace, the not-for-profit organization chosen by the Course’s scribe, Dr. Helen Schucman, for this purpose. It is available in the formats described below.
