Conclusion to a dialogue between Kenneth Wapnick and Fr. Norris Clarke comparing ACIM to Christianity and . Norris Clarke comparing ACIM to Christianity and the Bible. By allowing the dreamers of the world's dream - the separated ones - to act out in form their unconscious belief of murdering God and crucifying His Son, Jesus demonstrated: 1) the body is not our reality; 2) God, His Son, and Their Love cannot be destroyed; and 3) the dream of death had no effect on him, since he.

A Course in Miracles (also referred to as ACIM or the Course) is a 1976 book by Helen Schucman. It is a curriculum for those seeking to achieve spiritual transformation. The underlying premise is that the greatest "miracle" is the act of simply gaining a full "awareness of love's presence" in one's own life. The author claimed that the book had been dictated to her, word for word, via "inner dictation" from Jesus.

'The essential characteristic of A Course in Miracles that lies at the core of our differences is that it is a non-dualistic spirituality. Christianity, as Judaism before it, is a dualistic thought system in which God and the world, spirit and matter, co-exist as separate states, both of which are real. Reality is thus seen to be a dimension of opposites as with good and evil in marked distinction from the Course's understanding of reality as being only perfect unity in which there are no opposites.' (Adapted from "Summary and Conclusions") Many students of 'A Course in Miracles' have been tempted to call it the 'Third Testament,' thereby expressing their belief that it represents the same basic theology of the Bible, although in a more "purified," i.e., less ego-dominated, or more spiritually evolved form. Kenneth Wapnick and Rev. W. Norris Clarke, S.J., priest, philosopher, theologian, and Professor Emeritus from Fordham University, engage in this dialogue in order to identify the radical differences, as well as the similarities, between the thought systems of A Course in Miracles and biblical Christianity. Fr. Clarke, a Catholic priest, frames his remarks so as to represent the main theological doctrines of most Protestant churches as well. Reflecting the view of 'A Course in Miracles' that 'a universal theology is impossible, but a universal experience [love] is not only possible but necessary,' The dialogue makes abundantly clear, in the spirit of friends agreeing to disagree, that A Course in Miracles and biblical Christianity reflect entirely different and mutually exclusive theologies that can never be integrated into one coherent spirituality. The dialogue is divided into an Introduction and five chapters: The Origin of the World, Jesus (Nature and Role; The Meaning of the Crucifixion and the Resurrection), The Eucharist, Living in the World, and Summary and Conclusions. The Appendix includes a Glossary, the Nicene Creed, and a summary of the origin and principles of A Course in Miracles.

An interesting compare and contrast between ACIM and (Catholic) Christianity. Structured as a dialogue between Kenneth Wapnick - a prolific author on ACIM and Fr. Norris Clarke, a Jesuit priest, the book explores the similarities and profound differences between the two approaches. The theologian, philosopher, or curious student will find the book's content both enlightening and interesting. The reader will come away recognizing that ACIM is NOT Christianity - but the two share elements on the value of forgiveness, humanity and love that are universal.

I truly enjoyed the dialogue between Ken Wapnick and Father Clarke discussing the differences and commonality between a Course in Miracles and Christianity. In the end we share the same goal; we will all eventually unite on one path, hence no need for religious wars and arguments as all will be found to be unnecessary.

Very interesting debate, especially for fans of ACIM.

There are some fine things in this book, but also some serious problems. Most of the latter stem from the fact that Clarke seems to have taken what he knows of the Course from Wapnick, in the form of a six-hour workshop. The result is that at times they discuss not so much the differences between Christianity and the Course as between Christianity and the idiosyncratic interpretations which Dr. Wapnick brings to the Course. This tends to make the teachings of the Course and of Christianity seem to differ more than they actually do. Since this suits both of them down to the ground, they are happy with the result, but it needs to be taken with a degree of skepticism.
For instance, they discuss the difference between what the Course says about the origin of the material world and what Christianity says, without acknowledgment that in the so-called Urtext we find a flat-footed statement that the material world was created by God as a means of undoing the separation. The whole question of what the Course actually teaches on this issue is a very difficult one, and hardly something we can oppose to traditional Christian thought quite so readily. Certainly, however, you will not find a collective ego as the creator of the world, since the Course knows nothing of that concept. It does not state that our various selves were created by a process like cellular mitosis, as the supposed "one false self" divided over and over. Rather, the Course teaches that each of us individually is a soul, spirit, or thought directly created by God.
The Course also does not teach that Jesus does not concern himself with our bodies or our behavior, and again, the original dictation proves the opposite to be the case. This supposed difference between Christianity and the Course is simply an aspect of Wapnick's theology, arrived at by a process of reasoning which he gives in this book, and not a teaching of the Course. The Course likewise does not teach that the disciples projected their inner experience of Jesus and thus hallucinated a bodily resurrection-and Dr. Wapnick really ought to know better than this, since he was there when Helen heard her Voice explain that Jesus did appear to them in a body as real as any body ever is.

The book is an intelligent discourse between two religious experts. Ken and the priest debate politely on the differences between Catholicism and A Course In Miracles and boy what a difference. Nevertheless they emerge with respect and new found knowledge. Catholicism teaches exclusivity and specialness as well as an angry God.The course teaches that we are all Sons of God and that God is Unconditional love and ultimately there has never been a separation from God. The book is well worth reading.
