Robert Perry: Discussing the New and Complete Annotated Edition of "A Course in Miracles" by the Circle of Atonement
Friday, February 17, 2017
There is a new Course in Miracles book in town and it's a masterpiece! Come join Lisa Natoli as she talks with Robert Perry, internationally well-known author, lecturer and teacher. He is also the editor of the New and Complete Annotated Edition of A Course in Miracles based on the original handwritten notes of Helen Schucman. Robert Perry, founder of the Circle of Atonement has spent the past 10 years working with a dedicated group of individuals to carefully restore A Course in Miracles to a version that is as close to the original as one can possibly get.

As many people know, there has been extensive editing over the 50 years since ACIM first appeared on the scene in the early 1970's and over 45,000 words were left out, mostly from the first seven chapters of the Text, and the wording of the first four chapters had been edited to the point where only about a fifth of the sentences has retained their original wording. In this one-hour talk, Lisa tells the story of how she was initially turned off by this new edition, having already read every version every published of A Course in Miracles including all the original manuscripts. She describes how she couldn't possibly believe this version was different, and she didn't even want to read it. Her husband Bill Free was the one who finally got her to read it, to at least look at it, and how once began to look at it, she found it to be extremely different in the best way possible from other versions.

The way the material in this new version is presented makes it easy to read and understand, and apply to situations in your  life. Here is a life-changing message from Jesus giving a clear, direct practical and simple approach (with specific detailed instructions!) about how to ask for guidance, how to hear God's Voice and how to give miracles to experience miracles. It also includes 33 essays (called Cameos) which are original message from Jesus to Helen Schucman and Bill Thetford with clear commentary from Robert Perry, which Lisa Natoli believes will be helpful to many in their own practice of having a direct relationship with their own inner Teacher. If you have felt that A Course in Miracles is "difficult to understand" and "doesn't make any sense" (which are often heard statements), then get ready to be inspired by tuning into this one-hour talk and then head over to Amazon or to the Circle of Atonement to order a copy of this brilliant and beautiful new version of Course in Miracles.
