Book Description
A Course in Miracles is a spiritual path that focuses on the forgiveness of others and the release from guilt and fear. Its focus is practical, yet the entire path rests on a lofty vision of ultimate reality.

In expressing this vision, the Course answers age-old questions, such as, What is real? Does God exist? What is our true nature? Why am I here? The Course's answers are profound, but often hard to understand, and the goal of this book is to organize and present the Course's metaphysics in a way that is coherent and understandable.

Topics include:

Time and space vs. infinity and eternity

The nature of God; the nature of Christ

The criteria for what is real

Common sense reality


Reflections on the nature of the world

The message of A Course in Miracles
