101: Breaking Free From the Authority Problem

Are you someone who grates at being told what to do? We’re all like this to some degree and, if we have a problem with human authorities, how much more will we have a problem with God’s authority! For by creating us, God essentially told us what we ARE, which is far more basic than telling us what to do. As an attempted solution, we often push God to the margins. And this makes a certain sense: no authority, no problem. But A Course in Miracles sees a more complete solution, one which lies in a whole other direction. Please join Robert and Emily as they explore this fascinating topic, which is more central to both the Course and to our lives than we have perhaps suspected.

Since 1993, our purpose has been to help with both the theory and practical application of A Course in Miracles. We are the publisher of the Complete and Annotated Edition of the Course (known as the “CE”), which is available as a paperback*, ebook*, and via Audible.

Our work grows out of our commitment to be as faithful as possible to what A Course in Miracles says,  years of dedication to walking this path ourselves, and a desire to see the Course’s purpose realized in the lives of students and in the world.
