DESCRIPTION FROM BACK COVER

The philosophical depth, psychological insight, and spiritual guidance of A Course in Miracles have been an extraordinary treasure of wisdom for millions of readers worldwide since its original publication in 1976.  The reason for its popularity is simple: It deals directly with the root causes of human suffering and proposes the means through which we can return to our natural state of wholeness and peace.

This volume beautifully illustrates with more than 125 photographs by award-winning photographer Jane English, brings together the most evocative and inspirational selections from the Course and contains the entire texts of three previously published books, Accept This Gift, A Gift of Healing, and A Gift of Peace.  Exceptionally poetic and  moving, these succinct, powerful passages readily stand by themselves as potent capsules of profound inner wisdom, and as tools for our hearts and minds in the wider world.

“This book contains nuggets of truth that can change your life.”
—Gerald Jampolsky, M.D., author of Love is Letting Go of Fear

“I know what this book has given to me; I smile at the thought of what it can give to you.”
—Marianne Williamson, author of A Return to Love and The Age of Miracles

“An invaluable collection from one of the great sources of the perennial wisdom—a gold mine of psychological and spiritual insights.”
—Ken Wilber, author of Up from Eden, The Spectrum of Consciousness, and Sex, Ecology, Spirituality

“A Gift of Healing is a profound examination of why we sicken and how we can heal.  It is a book that calls on our deepest self for understanding.”
—Charles T. Tart, Ph.D., author of Waking Up: Overcoming the Obstacles to Human Potential

“This short book is a marvelous guide to using healing not simply to relieve pain, but as an opportunity for self-transformation.  It is inspired and profound.
—Willis Harman, author of Higher Creativity: Liberating the Unconscious for Breakthrough Insights
