An Introduction to A Course in Miracles – Rev. Joan M. Kistler, Presenter

A Course in Miracles is a spiritual thought system which claims to offer its readers spiritual transformation. It was “scribed” by clinical and research psychologists Dr. Helen Schucman through a process of inner dictation that she identified as coming from Jesus. People have called this controversial work everything, from “New Age pyschobabble” to the “New Age Bible.” Come learn about The Course, and decide for yourself!
