About A Course in Miracles Urtext Manuscripts

About A Course in Miracles: The Authentic Original Dictation
“This is a course in miracles, please take notes.” Those familiar with the various editions of A Course in Miracles will find the Authentic Original Dictation to be substantially more detailed in explaining Jesus’ reasoning in the early chapters of the Text volume. This is due to Doug Thompson’s restoration of approximately 50,000 words from Helen’s Shorthand Notebooks that were omitted from the Foundation for Inner Peace (FIP) abridgment, and 38,000 words from the Hugh Lynn Cayce abridgement upon which the Course in Miracles Society Original Edition (OE) is based.
Heavy editing and abridgement by Drs. Schucman, Thetford and Wapnick changed discussions of the Bible, sex, possession, Freud, Spiritual eye, Soul and other topics; some were severely abridged or completely edited out of all 3 FIP/FACIM/VIKING editions. Doug Thompson’s new edition includes over 2400 footnotes to references on variant ACIM readings and Bible verses and extensive appendices with commentary on the versions and history of A Course in Miracles.
We offer a free companion website with concordances and source material libraries that include free online copies of nearly every other edition of A Course in Miracles in print in print. An optional 4.5 Gb DVD-ROM contains an enhanced edition of the Scholar’s Toolbox website, concordances, over 10,000 pages of source material, a synthesized audio reading of the 31 chapter Hugh Lynn Cayce text and several editions of the King James Bible.
