Publisher's Summary

A Course in Miracles (ACIM) - the self-study spiritual-thought system that teaches the way to love and forgiveness - has captivated the minds and captured the hearts of millions of people. Delivering inner peace where fear and pain once prevailed, its universal message is unsurpassed in its power to heal. Yet many students report that they have difficulty grasping the principles or keeping up with the lessons. So even while they yearn for the spiritual freedom the course offers, they put the book aside, hoping to get to it one day.

Alan Cohen, ACIM student and teacher for more than 30 years, takes the big-picture ideas of the course and brings them down to earth in 22 concise, easy-to-understand chapters. Featuring entertaining examples, stories, and real-life applications, this unique, listener-friendly guide will prove invaluable to longtime ACIM students and newcomers alike.

A Course in Miracles Made Easy is the Rosetta Stone that will open doors for you to understand the course and use it to generate practical, healing results in your life.

A Must Listen

This book brings the course to ‘life’ for me. I study ACIM, it brings me peace, however Alan Cohen animates its principles in a way that you just know this is truly an attainable way of life. Thank you!

Best Book I’ve Ever Read

If you’re in a place in life where all you see are the things going wrong and this is the book for you. They pulled me out of my purse and paint my life for the better. I will read this book again and again over the course of my life I’m sure of it.

Fantastic application of ACIM

This is wonderful clarification and reinforcement of many of the principles, and a better understanding on ACIM. I have many of Marianne Williamson‘s books audio and tapes and this is a new refreshing approach. I love his many quotes from and definitions from many other philosophers, poets, and eastern teachers. What a great find.

Listening is powerful

I read this book and it was very meaningful for me. After a year or so I thought I’d like to listen to it and I must say there is something deeply powerful about the spoken word and that is the case with this book. Well worth reading and listening to.

Parables / storytelling to illustrate basics

I found this book engaging and it has inspired me to pick up the Bible again. I looked at it in the first place because it had great reviews. It seems the majority of complaints is about the author giving specific anecdotes from his life, from friends or students.'

This was exactly what I enjoy!

It is not a bullet points 'cliffs notes' of ACIM but you can get that out of the stories.

I will re-listen!

Maybe the first ACIM book you should read

I wish I had read this before or at the same time as I started studying The Course. He does a great job putting complex ideas into simple, understandable and (of most value) applicable lessons for life change. This is the best companion to ACIM I have read (and I've read them all-- almost ;-) Good job, Alan Cohen. I am on my second reading and will go back over and over.

Simplicity! Yes!

I appreciate the attention to detail in this version of A Course In Miracles. I attempt to read the original copy of the book here and there, and find it to be a little confusing or overwhelming. I love the words, but it seems to take a lot of attention to absorb all of the messages. THIS book was the remedy to that--it was like a really interesting teacher lecturing on the book in a way that I could understand and engage with. Thank god!

Great if you like hearing about Jesus and God

Too religious for me. Slow narration style. Patronising introduction. I tried really hard to finish it but gave up on chapter 17

Exceeded expectations

This Book was beautifully narrated by Alan Cohen who very much added to the narrative with his tone, inflection and honesty.

I observed my resistance to the belief that ACIM was scribed from the voice of the Christian god. Alan addresses this directly which I personally found helpful.

It is a wonderful summary which nestled itself comfortably alongside
my inner peace. The experience was quite beautiful really. I will listen to this book over again.

Joyous.

Full of amazing information

I couldn't finish the book last year. The author's voice is really a drag. But as I have evolved I now find the book really amazing and useful. Very very useful. Many references to Jesus. Though I'm not Christian I'm not uncomfortable with that. If you are, this is not the book for you. Thank you so much to the author for your hard work in putting this book together. The effort is really obvious. I will read it several times over!

Difficult to stick with

It may be that the actual course is better but this is a difficult listen. I found it disjointed and overly flowery in its presentation.

The narration is , for me at least, frustrating. It comes at you in a “ breathy” voice that is hard at times to understand. The narrator lets his voice drop at the end of many sentences for effect. I spent a lot of time wondering what he said.

loved it

I have attempted study of ACIM numerous times and always get lost in the text. This book is a great tool as an introduction to the course. I really enjoyed listening to the principles being broken down to relatable stories and the examples of how ACIM lessons can be applied to every day life. I rated only 4 stars as I felt this book still left me wanting more. I guess I will have to return to ACIM for that and this book has inspired me to do so.

amazing content but annoying to listen to

not sure if its the narrators intonation that makes it so hard to listen for more then 10 minutes, I am sure the content is divine but the narrator sounds like a preach his intonation is annoying to listen to for long time. i stopped listening to as I simply couldn't

Where's the Course????

You mean to say.... that I'm up to Chapter 10... (or chapter 11 as it reads in the Audio Book... because, y'know... 'chapters' mean NOTHING in Audible books... because all you see is a NUMBER!!! If you want to navigate around the book, FORGET CHAPTERS.... because they are only numbers and they do NOT correspond with the ACTUAL book chapter numbers!!! FIX THIS AUDIBLE!!!)

I've just realized.... this is a book 'about' the book... Chapter 10 and still no 365 days of exercises!!! I 'really' need this book because I am hopping mad, I bought a book, about a book.... not the actual book. This aint no COURSE.....

If you have any doubt or disbelief in God.... forget this book... you hear the word God repeatedly... I'm ok with that.... because I substitute my own meaning...
