I’d like to recommend the New, Complete and Annotated Edition of A Course in Miracles, based on original handwritten notes, from the Circle of Atonement: http://www.acim.circleofa.org
I helped in a small way with the proof-reading of this new edition, and I’m excited to recommend it to anyone interested in A Course in Miracles. I wrote this endorsement, which appears on the website:
The definitive edition of the CourseRobert Perry has done students of ACIM an invaluable service. This is the edition of the Course I have wanted for years—ever since I realized that the words of Jesus given to Helen Schucman had been edited. I wanted to know what he said, not what someone else thought he should have said. It turns out it makes an incredible difference. Not that it changes the central message of A Course in Miracles—no, not that. But it makes it much clearer. It changes the emphasis in many places (the emphasis Jesus’ voice had, which Helen and Bill recorded in ALL CAPS in their typescript, is here preserved with subtle underlining) and in a few instances completely flips the sense of a sentence. This is the original stuff! To Course students, opening this edition is like a Bible scholar finding a first-century Greek manuscript of one of the gospels.
Add to that all the material from the original notes that was totally left out of the popular edition of the Course, cross references, Bible references, explanatory footnotes, and Robert Perry’s illuminating cameo essays about that extra material, and you have a book that Course students will treasure and study passionately. This is the definitive edition of A Course in Miracles. I intend to use the Circle Edition in all my study groups from now on.

I've uploaded the commentary on T-21.III, "Faith, Belief, and Vision." We'll be studying this section in a week or two. Next Tuesday morning, November 8, we will be studying T-21.II. The commentary for that was uploaded a while ago. Please print out your own copies, if you can.

I lead a weekly study group in A Course in Miracles at Unity Church of Portland. I formerly worked with Robert Perry in The Circle of Atonement, a teaching and healing organization focused on A Course in Miracles and based in Sedona, Arizona. Prior to that I worked as a computer programmer, trainer, system manager, and consultant on VAX/VMS computers. I'm now retired, still writing, and living in Portland with my wife, Peggy Baldwin, enjoying genealogy and Bible study as hobbies.
