What is A Course in Miracles?

A Course in Miracles (ACIM) is a 1,250-page, three-volume book which combines spiritual teachings with far-reaching and practical psychological insights.

The Course aims to help us remove the blocks to the awareness of love's presence and to start listening to the 'Voice for God,' our inner teacher.

The three volumes consist of:

  1. The Text, which provides the theoretical framework.
  2. The Workbook, which contains 365 daily lessons.
  3. The Manual for Teachers, which answers many common questions and includes an appendix called the Clarification of Terms.

Also available are two pamphlets, scribed from the same source: The Song of Prayer and Psychotherapy: Purpose, Process and Practice.

Since A Course in Miracles was first published in 1976, more than one million copies have been sold around the world. The Course has been translated into several languages. The first two translations were Spanish and Portuguese, followed by German and Hebrew. The most recently available translations, released in 1999, are Russian, Chinese, Dutch and Italian, with many other translations in progress.

To date, in excess of 700 books have been published which take the Course as their inspiration, and there are now as many as 2,000 study groups around the world.
