"A Course in Miracles Urtext Manuscripts" is a printed version of the Urtext, the original typescript that was typed by Bill Thetford from Helen Schucman dictating her notes to him. It includes approximately 50,000 words that are not included in the familiar FIP version. The Urtext includes extensive discussions of the Bible, sex, possession, Freud and other topics which were edited out of other editions. There are over 2,400 footnotes to Bible references and variant ACIM readings. The book also includes extensive appendices with commentary on the versions and history of A Course in Miracles by the compiler, Doug Thompson.
The Urtext is closest to Helen's notes. It is a must for those who want an unadulterated versiion of the Course. Jesus wanted his word to be unaltered and here it is. It is beautiful to read. Thank God it is available for us. Why would the word of Jesus need to be refined and altered by Helen and Ken Wapnick? The words of Jesus need no alteration and refinement by Helen and Ken however well intended they were.
