This book review is part of a set that covers the main topic of A Course In Miracles. Considered by lots of its students to be their “spiritual path,” the book A Course in Miracles has sold over 1.6 million copies since its appearance in 1975. As its title suggests, its purpose is to train us to work miracles to just accept and extend to others the shifts in perception that awaken us to God. Robert Perry is the Official Guide to A Course In Miracles.
“Path of Light” provides a fresh, superb, and penetrating breakdown of A Course in Miracles (ACIM), encompassing what it is, how it had been written, what it teaches, and, primarily, how to reside it.
Internationally respected Course teacher and author, Robert Perry, has written this enlightening and comprehensive guide for new and experienced Course students, for spiritual seekers who’re curious about or available to exploring the Course as a spiritual path, and for people who simply desire to incorporate more spirituality into their lives.
“Path of Light” presents the Course just as much greater than a group of transformative spiritual teachings that simply talk about the target of inner peace and union with God. It emphasizes the Course as a practical and complete spiritual path that shows us a road we could walk along, one step at the same time, in order to actually reach that goal. It explains what must be done to walk this path; it answers the questions that come up at different points along the way; it describes the advantages gained from traveling this road.
Perry writes in a definite, straightforward fashion, and, like a storyteller, he uses simple words to relay the deep truth of the teachings of ACIM.
More difficult than popular “self-help” summaries, acim yet more practical and engaging than a scholarly analysis, “Path of Light” will give you a new standard of reference on the most remarkable spiritual teaching originating in modern times.
Foreword by Marianne Williamson, writer of “A Come back to Love”
Preface (Assessing A Course in Miracles) by Roger Walsh, M.D., Ph.D., writer of “Essential Spirituality”
