The Pocket Edition Text contains the complete and unabridged Text portion of A Course in Miracles - Original Edition as it was completed by Helen Schucman and Bill Thetford in 1972. Taken from the original manuscript for the Course, the only editing that has been done to this great spiritual classic has been to correct occasional typographic and spelling errors and to render capitalization and punctuation consistent. This Text volume is the companion to the popular ACIM Pocket Edition Workbook/Manual published by Course in Miracles Society. We call it a pocket edition because the book is designed to go anywhere with the student it is only 8 x 5 and just less than 1 in thickness. You can toss it in a backpack, briefcase or even a lady's purse. Like the Pocket Edition of the Workbook, the Pocket Edition Text is designed for rough treatment it is printed on a durable paper and has a laminated cover that resists spots and staining.

This is my second book the first I left behind on a whale watching boat in cape cod. I'm assuming it had went to someone that may have needed it more at the time. The texts in these books are phenomenal about over coming the separation we are going through accepting the atonement and Allowing the holy spirit in. I didn't come from a strong Christian background and never been baptist either but I am on a spiritual path reading and learning as much enlightening materials as I can. This book is legit and truly the teachings of a higher power Jesus Christ. Please don't let your ego draw judgement on the name Jesus but rather go into this with love. I always go into a book with an open mind and the readiness to learn. There are many pieces to the puzzle of life that we are all searching for and this is without a doubt one if them.
Love and light to all

When asked to review this book, my mind sighs in disbelief, It brings to mind a conversation in the New Testament of the bible. I hear a sinner pleading toJohn the Bastist to baptize him despite his wicked way, even though he really doesn't deserve this great man's attention lest healing. John turns to him asd says to the sinner, "I am not the ONE you speak of. He will come after me, for I am just a man, the One that follows comes to fulfill the promise God made to his people. I am not worthy to tie the strap of his sandal. He is God's Son and comes to teach the fallen. So to review this miraculous, holy book
I would have to ask the author, Jesus Christ, if I was holy enough to review His Work.
The Course in Miracles is truly a great spiritual classic and so much more. It is the answer we have all been searching for and didn.t know it. The Course is endless and the brothers who are studying it know that Jesus teaches each soul on its own personal level of needs. Jesus walks one through the pages of truth teaching each mind the plan for Atonement which was creasted in answer to man's fall or separation from God. This is an absolute must for all souls here in the earth school trying to find our way home. Jesus promises throughout the book that man'salvation is certain once each soul forgives himself and his brother's alike. Once we are able to forgive love will be eternal.
