A Course in Miracles



A Course in Miracles was "scribed" by Schucman between 1965 and 1972 through a process of inner dictation. She experienced the process as one of a distinct and clear dictation from an inner voice, which earlier had identified itself to her as Jesus. Schucman's scribing of A Course in Miracles began with these words: "This is a course in miracles, please take notes."

Schucman was a clinical and research psychologist, who held the tenured position of Associate Professor of Medical Psychology at the College of Physicians and Surgeons at the Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center in New York City. During her tenure at Columbia University, Schucman worked with William Thetford. During this time, Schucman worked in a collaborative venture with Thetford in scribing A Course In Miracles (ACIM) and also with its initial edits.

The main transcription process took seven years, from 1965 through 1972, during which time she would take down the notes in shorthand, then each day read back these notes to William Thetford, a colleague at Columbia, who would type them out while she read them. After all the ACIM material had been initially transcribed it was then edited for publication by Schucman and the other two primary editors, William Thetford and Kenneth Wapnick.

The course was first published in 1976 and has increased in exposure and acceptance due to its universal nature. It has been accepted and promoted by many New Thought churches. It has even recently been publicized by Oprah Winfrey. There are references throughout the course to the Holy Bible providing light to many Christian teachings.

It is a Course in Miracles, guiding you to the truth within you, and as you read through it, the voice and truth of the words will resonate within your soul.

My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me.

(The words of Jesus from the Holy Bible—John 10:27)
