Publisher's Summary

This edition of A Course in Miracles is referred to as the “Original Edition“ and is the Course as it was completed in 1972. This was before there were significant edits in 1975. This edition was discovered in 1999 and was first published by Course in Miracles Society in 2006.

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.

The volume that you will be listening to here is the Text, which is the first of the three-volume set: Text, Workbook, and Manual for Teachers. These volumes were scribed by Helen Schucman with the help of William Thetford, as she listened to an inner voice that identified Itself as Jesus. 

The narrator Martin Weber, [maz], is a longtime friend and member of CIMS Europe, a musician, and, of course, a student of A Course in Miracles. Maz sits with the material in meditation before he begins his recording and then adds music that he has composed for a perfect accompaniment. 

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Prefer this narrator to one of a similar title

I recommend this narrator over the narrator for the "Audible only" version of this book.

This book has many versions: Original publication, Original text but published much later, summary, etc. I recommend this version, as I believe it is closer to the original text and intent. Also, the narrator is much better.
A similar version of the text is narrated by a many monotone/ computer sounding vice, that makes this material difficult to parse and comprehend.

Narrator was great.

There is 1 chapter that was recorded with an echo setting, hence it is difficult to understand, and should be re-recorded. However as it lasts only a few minutes of the something like 45+ hour recording, so it's hardly a major complaint. Know that it is a one-off.

An actual issue, though is the chapter titles themselves. The listed titles do not correlate to the actual chapter titles. So it is difficult to cross reference!
Honestly three is no viable excuse for Audible to Not fix this! Indeed the listed "titles" are plain wrong.

That said, the book, content, narration voice, and narration quality is great. And the price is excellent.
I do recommend this particular title.

I can't listen

The Course in Miracles has a wealth of information but from an audio book standpoint, I can't listen to this. The tone has no real inflection and is quite boring to listen to. It's hard to be inspired by the words because of the tone. I got it to supplement the book I received from the library but again it's a rough listen.

Ancient Wisdom For Today and Tomorrow's World

I cannot say enough good about this book and this Audible.com recording! I know my growth toward Christ consciousness has immensely advanced by constant listening. Every time I listen, more of the wonder, wisdom, peace, joy, love and grace of God gains permanence within my eternal awareness! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Beautiful rendition

I love the background music. It enhances the listening experience a great deal. Listening to this audio book is so soothing as if I'm drinking a cup of hot chocolate in a cozy cold evening next to the fireplace. I enjoy listening to this at bedtime. It's my adult lullaby. Definitely one of my best purchases on Audible so far. If you're a Course in Miracles fan, I highly recommend it.

Narration of ACIM leaves much to be desired

This narrator's voice rhythm is odd. His inflections seem unnatural. I shut it off after listening to just one section. I plan to delete it from my library straightaway.

Annoying

Read as if it’s the intro to Star Trek or they’re trying to hypnotize you over stupid “otherworldly” music.

Amazing version

This version has absolutely nailed the Course for me. if you are new to the Course I suggest you listen any and all books about the Course before you delve into this. Truth is always amazing

Version with background music

Unfortunately this version is set with background music which withdraws the attention from the text and message. Further, the text spoken does not correspond with the text as published.
