A Course in Miracles Made Easy

By Alan Cohen

Author Alan Cohen takes on the task of interpreting and sharing A Course in Miracles- A complete self-study spiritual thought system. According to the ACIM website, it “teaches that the way to universal love and peace—or remembering God—is by undoing guilt through forgiving others.” While ACIM is touted as a revolutionary reference for finding peace, love, forgiveness and happiness in life, it can be very hard to understand.

Cohen has gone through both the text and workbook to deliver his perception of these teachings. To further explain he adds personal anecdotes bringing these teachings to easy comprehension.  As the ACIM course explains it is but one course among thousands and though this version is in the language of Christianity, it is by no means religious to only Christians. It is a non-denomination, non-sectarian course that is a universal spiritual teaching. In ACIM Made Easy, these teachings are finally explained without the circuitous esoteric language that has made it difficult for many to comprehend.

For the experienced students of the course, they will find a different perspective that can lead to further inner exploration. For the novice new to ACIM, Cohen leads an introduction that will set the seeker on a path of inner discovery. For anyone interested in A Course in Miracles, this guidebook is a “must have” reference for deeper understanding.

A Course in Miracles (ACIM)—the self-study spiritual-thought system that teaches the way to love and forgiveness—has captured the minds and hearts of millions of people, and delivered inner peace where fear and pain once prevailed. Its universal message is unsurpassed in its power to heal. Yet many students report that they have difficulty grasping the principles, or encounter resistance to the lessons. So, even while they yearn for the spiritual freedom the Course offers, they put the book aside, hoping one day to get to it.

Alan Cohen, ACIM student and teacher for over 30 years, takes the Big Picture ideas of the Course and brings them down to earth in practical, easy-to-understand lessons with plenty of real-life examples and applications. A Course in Miracles Made Easy is the Rosetta stone that will render the Course understandable and relatable; and, most importantly, generate practical, healing results in the lives of students. This unique reader-friendly guide will serve longtime students of the Course, as well as those seeking to acquaint themselves with the program.
