ACIM, the Fun Version! A real-world rewrite of the lessons of A Course in Miracles by the #1 New York Times best-selling author of E-Squared.
A Course in Miracles is profound, deeply moving, and as boring to read as a bookshelf assembly manual.
Ask for a show of hands at any self-help gathering, and 95 percent will happily admit to owning the dense blue book that’s a famous resource for spiritual transformation. Ask the obvious follow-up, “How many have actually read it?” and all but a smattering of hands go down. It’s as if everyone wants the miracles, the forgiveness, and the mind shifts, but they just can’t bear its ponderous heaviness.
Pam Grout to the rescue! Her new book is for all those still struggling with the Course. Grout offers a modern-day rewrite of the 365-lesson workbook-the text at the heart of the Course. Unlike the original, it’s user-friendly, accessible and easy for everyone to understand.
In daily lessons with titles like “The Home Depot of Spiritual Practices” and “Transcending the Chatty Asshat in My Head,” Grout drills down to the Course’s essential message and meaning, grounding it in the context of everyday life in a way that’s bound to stick. The lessons here blend eternal truths with pop culture and personal stories that are laugh-out-loud funny and deeply soul-stirring, often at the same time.
You won’t be tempted to use this Course in Miracles as a doorstop. You’ll want to use it, every day, to change your life.
Million-seller across all formats. Sales of E-Squared have topped 1M and it continues to sell steadily.
#1 NYT best-selling author. E-Squared spent 20 weeks on the list, 2 weeks at #1. Grout’s books have also appeared on the WSJ bestseller list.
A new take on a beloved yet hard-to-read classic text. Interest in A Course in Miracles has stood the test of time—for many, it’s a classic spiritual text on a par with the Bible or the Koran—and books based on it (such as Marianne Williamson’s A Return to Love) are hugely popular too.
Unique offering in the ACIM marketplace. Other best-selling books on the Course summarize its basic principles. Grout’s book is the first to rewrite the 365-lesson workbook, the all-important meat that facilitates the spiritual transformation.
