This volume, entitled Commentary on A Course in Miracles, is Chapter 1 of a projected multi-volume series. In this chapter, Gavin takes a look at the 50 miracle principles which begin A Course in Miracles. It is not a simple look, but a well-designed commentary that draws parallels from the entire three-volume ACIM.
Gavin takes us through the 50 principles, one-by-one, but as he progresses, he draws upon past comments to form a well-established sequence of ideas. By choosing the 50 principles of miracles, and then developing ideas from the other parts of ACIM, he has done us a great service. Those 50 principles are among the most difficult parts for a new student, because he/she does not have the understanding that the remaining pages of A Course in Miracles will give.
This introductory chapter for Gavin’s commentary also introduces the entire ACIM. For veteran students/teachers, it serves as a review that capsules a large number of the most important passages to follow.
Gavin has been sharing parts of his new book on his web site, and I encourage interested individuals to visit the address given above. He is a most approachable person, with accounts on Facebook and Twitter, and he is very, very enthusiastic about A Course in Miracles. And his enthusiasm is catching!
Chapter 1 of Commentary on A Course in Miracles is a fitting beginning to a most ambitious project that will have far-reaching effects, I believe, on the understanding that students/teachers have of A Course in Miracles.
Read and enjoy!
