Book Description

Examines the Course's lofty vision of reality, its account of the events which gave birth to our current existence, and how the Course views the relationship between ultimate reality and the illusory world of separation.

I am guilty of having read a number of Robert Perry's books on A Course In Miracles and I am further guilty of having both enjoyed and benefited from every single one of them. With that bias out front, let me introduce you to the most remarkable 134 pages you may ever read.

If you are a devoted Course student, then this is Required Material. You just can't do without it.

Or, if you happen to be a curious social scientist who wants to find out what happens when a Large and Refined Brain that is gifted with a shockingly good command of the English language and extraordinary insight is focused on an Incredibly Complicated Puzzle, then this is Required Material for you as well.

I came to this book with a reasonably good background in metaphysics, particularly those with an Eastern bent. I also had a fairly good understanding of the message and metaphysics of ACIM. Or so I thought. Perry blazes trails in places where I didn't even know there were spaces. And he does so with compassionate tolerance and guidance for those of us with Less Large and Less Refined Brains.

I frankly read this book in wonder. Again and again the author would boldly write himself straight toward a trap. I could see The End fast approaching and begin to feel the, "Aha! There, you lost it, you blew it! Right there!" rising up in me. It never happened. Not once.

Time and again Magician Perry saunters right over The Edge of the World and then—BANG!—stands on solid ground where we saw only space. Conversely, he proves himself equally adept at showing us space where we saw solid ground. It's a ride you don't want to miss, a six-out-of-five star book.
