Within the Great Books category, there are "The Books", the great spiritual resource materials which contain the worlds that reveal the highest truths. They are the Bible, the Koran, the Talmud, the I Ching, and others. For many of us, A Course in Miracles is one of these. It opens the heart to healing and hope and enlightenment and love. One of America's most well-known actors, Richard Thomas, reads a collection of favorite passages.

"There is a lie in the first chapter of this book"
There is a lie in the first chapter. Helen Schucman was not an athiest!
According to Wikipedia,
"Schucman was born Helen Dora Cohn in 1909 to Sigmund Cohn, a prosperous metallurgical chemist, and Rose Black, who had married on October 18, 1896, in Manhattan. Schucman had a brother, Adolph Cohn, who was 14 years her senior. Though her parents were both half-Jewish, they were non-observant. Schucman's mother Rose dabbled in Theosophy and various expressions of Christianity such as Christian Science and the Unity School of Christianity. However, it was the family housekeeper, Idabel, a Baptist, who had the deepest religious influence on Schucman while she was growing up. In 1921, when she was 12, Schucman visited Lourdes, France, where she had a spiritual experience, and in 1922 she was baptized as a Baptist.
Helen Cohn Schucman (July 14, 1909 – February 9, 1981) was an American clinical and research psychologist from New York City. She was a professor of medical psychology at Columbia University in New York from 1958 until her retirement in 1976. Schucman is best known for having "scribed" with the help of colleague William Thetford the book A Course in Miracles (1st edition, 1975), the contents of which she claimed to have been given to her by an inner voice she identified as Jesus. However, as per her request, her role as its "writer" was not revealed to the general public until after her death."
