“Path of Light” provides a fresh, superb, and penetrating summary of A Course in Miracles (ACIM), encompassing what it’s, how it was written, what it teaches, and, primarily, how to call home it.
Internationally respected Course teacher and author, Robert Perry, has written this enlightening and comprehensive guide for new and experienced Course students, for spiritual seekers that are interested in learning or available to exploring the Course as a spiritual path, and for many who simply want to incorporate more spirituality within their lives.
“Path of Light” presents the Course just as much higher than a pair of transformative spiritual teachings that only talk about the target of inner peace and union with God. It emphasizes the Course as a functional and complete spiritual path that shows us a road we are able to walk along, one step at the same time, to be able to actually reach that goal. It explains what should be done to walk this path; acim it answers the questions that can come up at different points on the way; it describes the advantages gained from traveling this road.
Perry writes in a clear, straightforward fashion, and, such as for instance a storyteller, he uses simple words to relay the deep truth of the teachings of ACIM.
More difficult than popular “self-help” summaries, yet more practical and engaging than a scholarly analysis, “Path of Light” will provide a new standard of reference on the absolute most remarkable spiritual teaching originating in modern times.
