The Heart of A Course In Miracles Reviews
Click here to Buy the Book.
Love This Book
I purchased this book because I’ve always wanted to read A Course in Miracles. But reading the entire book seemed so daunting to me; like reading the bible all over again. It even has those bible thin pages. The title of the book appealed to me. It felt like the Cliff Notes to ACIM. And hey, if I can pass tests on Cliff Notes then I am sure I can grasp the ACIM principles the same way. From the first chapter of this book I found myself with an intense desire to actually read A Course in Miracles. I have even pulled out one of my 18 copies of ACIM. I swear I don’t know where they all came from. I know I’ve never bought a copy. It’s like the Universe pretty much yelling at me, “Read this please.” Like the joke where the guy asked God why he didn’t save him from drowning and God replies, “Look I sent you two boats and a helicopter.”
One reviewer on amazon.com commented that Michael used a mishmash of ideologies/religions/thoughts which misrepresent the course. Personally, I feel that incorporating the use of varied religions, ideology and quotes is a cultural courtesy and helps a broader and more diverse audience to understand the concepts in ways that speak to them personally. Interpretation of “The Course” or any such text is and always has been personal. This book is an outline the concepts or principles and not an interpretation. At least this is the way it reads to me.
I can really appreciate the 12 concepts which put me in mind of the 12 disciples or 12 states of consciousness. I am really enjoying this book. I find myself reading just a few pages at a time and taking time to digest them. With a tendency toward speed reading this is a new experience for me. I feel that I really have a great primer for the ACIM and am excited to get started reading it.
I am not sure how or why but the book has given me not only the desire to start ACIM but an excitement about it. That, in itself, is a miracle in my book.
Opens Spiritual Windows
Both ACIM Students and Miracle Workers can gain enormously from this overview. It opens spiritual windows and offers more light for us all!
If You Read Only One Book on A Course In Miracles, This is the One
If you were to read only one book on A Course In Miracles, this is the one. It offers the most complete picture of the course, along with easy-to-learn steps that guide the reader to a full understanding of how we got here and how to best find our way Home. Powerful while concise, Mirdad illustrates his mastery of the material and his flexibility in adapting it for modern day readers. He blends the threads of countless spiritual sources into a tapestry that reads more holistically than any supplemental ACIM text I’ve seen.
A Masterly Explanation of the Primary Tenets of the CourseWith his new book, The Heart of A Course in Miracles: A Guide for Understanding and Applying the Course’s 12 Primary Concepts, Michael Mirdad gives readers a masterly explanation of the primary tenets of the Course. In doing so, he raises the reader to a new level of awareness. After you read it, I believe you’ll be empowered to more often experience your true nature. I highly recommend this important book.

Reminds Me of the Classic “Love is Letting Go of Fear”
The Heart of A Course in Miracles is a jewel mined from the depths of the heart! Recommended for any Course student or anyone seeking deep spiritual truth and experience. Its clarity reminds me of the classic Love is Letting Go of Fear by Gerald Jampolsky. Love-filled and crystal clear on crucial spiritual concepts, Mirdad helps us reclaim our identity as God’s Children.

From an Intellectual Read to Straight to My Heart
I am finding it not only necessary but rewarding to read and re-read Michael Mirdad’s: The Heart of A Course In Miracles. As a student of the Course, I have struggled with parts of it and trying to apply certain aspects of it to my life, but because Michael’s style of writing is so fluid and simple to read, it takes the Course from an intellectual read straight to my heart where I am now able to better understand and apply its concepts. If you love the Course, this book is a must for your personal spiritual library!

Reaches a Depth of Spiritual Teaching Only Surpassed by the Course ItselfIn The Heart of A Course in Miracles, Michael Mirdad explains the most important concepts of the Course in a way that only he could do–clear, deep, applicable, and life-changing. This book reaches a depth of spiritual teaching that is only surpassed by the Course itself and it brings the spirituality back that has often been lost in translation. Students of the Course will never see that material the same way.

Links Compatible IdeasIt’s easier to understand new ideas if we can link them to familiar ones. A major plus of this book is that it links or joins potentially compatible ideas. Michael Mirdad explains the fundamental concepts of A Course in Miracles with reference to more familiar ideas from mythology, psychology, science, theology, and the Bible.
