A Course In Miracles
Question from on 07-11-2007:
I have been introduced (through an acquaintance) to an interesting book called "A Course In Miracles". Some of what I have read online seems to make some sence, but I am wondering if the Catholic church has taken note of this publication, and if so, what are the conclusions as to it's validity? Is it a book I may study in length? I will put no book ahead of the Bible, and no religion ahead of the Catholic faith, but I must confess this book has some interesting points to be considered. Will it conflict with my Catholic teachings? Thank you for your attention to this question..... God bless..............Michael

To know what the Church teaches, you do well to learn those teachings from the Church herself. Since you have already read some of the book on line, why not check out its teachings by consulting a Catholic web site dealing with the same topic. The course on miracles is definitely not a Catholic book. Since parts of it have grabbed your interest, check it out from a Catholic point of view. There is sure to be significant differences.
