A Course in Miracles has become a contemporary spiritual classic. Since it was originally published in 1976, readers have recognized in its words truths that they had never heard before, yet somewhere inside seemed to have always known. However, in the process of editing for publication, roughly forty-five thousand words were edited out, mostly from the first seven chapters of the Text, and the wording of the first four chapters was edited to the point where only about a fifth of their sentences retained their original wording.
The Complete and Annotated Edition aims to restore the material that was lost. It was created by going back to Helen’s shorthand Notes and editing afresh, retaining the original words to the maximum degree possible. By going back to the words that Helen Schucman heard in her mind and wrote down in her notebooks, it attempts to bring the reader into a more direct encounter with the power of those words. It includes, either in its main body or in appendices, those approximately forty-five thousand words that had been removed in the original published edition.
Robert Perry, editor of the Complete and Annotated Edition of A Course in Miracles, is one of the Course’s most respected teachers. He began teaching the Course in 1986 and has shared its insights with students around the world. Robert’s work grows out of his dedication to the Course as his own path and his desire to assist others in their own spiritual development. Robert is the founder of the Circle of Atonement and the author or coauthor of more than 20 books and booklets based on the teachings of the Course.
