A Course in Miracles is a systematic way to train your mind to a different perception of everyone and everything in the world.
People ask me a lot: What’s the best version of A Course in Miracles to buy.
Below are my personal favorite versions. I have them all and below I describe the details so you can choose which ones works best for you.
The one that you want to buy really depends on what you want and also how much money you want to spend.
The Course book that I love the most right now is the newly published version put out by Circle of Atonement. It is Helen Schucman’s handwritten notes. With it, I have found a very deep communion with Jesus like never before. It’s somehow (to me) simpler to understand than other versions. It contains 45,000 words that are not contained in the Foundation for Inner Peace version. It also has 33 essays (called Cameos) which contain the early stories of Helen Schucman and Bill Thetford, how Jesus was instructing, directing and guiding them.
The only drawbacks is that it’s $45 (before shipping) and it does not contain the Psychotherapy Booklet or Song of Prayer.
One other drawback is that it’s super heavy, so it’s not easy to carry around in your book or traveling with
I have posted Psychotherapy and Song of Prayer here on this website (for free) and also below are links to purchase it as booklets.
Foundation for Inner Peace version of A Course in Miracles. I love this version also. I have used this version since 1992 when I first found ACIM. I personally love the hardcover version because if you are committed to treating A Course in Miracles like THE COURSE IN MIND-TRAINING that is, it takes one year minimum to complete it so you will be using this book every.single.day. You will be taking it with you everywhere. So this is a great version and it doesn’t cost a whole lot of money.
This version contains the Psychotherapy and the Song of Prayer.
The drawback with this version is that it’s missing 45,000 words from Helen Schucman’s notes. But at the same time, I know that anyone can experience transformation and complete change of mind with this version.
This next version is called the “Urtext” from Doug Version. I love this one took. It’s the original version of the material of A Course in Miracles that comes from Bill Thetford’s typed notes before the Foundation for inner Peace began editing.
