A Course in Miracles Made Easy: Mastering the Journey from Fear to Love by Alan Cohen - Book Review


A Course in Miracles (ACIM) is a self-study spiritual thought system that leads to love and forgiveness. It has captured several people’s hearts and minds and gave inner peace to where fear and pain once reigned.

Its universal message is unparalleled in its ability to heal. Yet, many students say that they have difficulty understanding the principles or faced resistance to the teachings. So, even while they yearn for the spiritual freedom the course offers, they put the book aside, hoping at some point to get to it.

Alan Cohen, an ACIM student, and teacher for over 30 years takes the course’s Big Picture ideas and brings them in practical and easy-to-understand lessons with many true to life examples and applications.

A Course in Miracles Made Easy is the Rosetta stone, which will make the course more understandable and relatable. Most significantly, it generates practical, and healing leads to students’ lives. This unique reader-friendly guide is created for longtime students of the course and those seeking to enlighten themselves with the program.


I have handpicked ACIM in bookstores several times, scanned through its pages, and then brought it back on the shelf. Curiously enough, this book picks abreast of all the points that put me off - the load of the paper, the hard-to-follow prose, and the length.

This book gives an introduction and, indeed, a summarised overview of all the critical points of ACIM. And it does it brilliantly. It makes the purpose that ACIM works at a heart and soul level, not an intellectual level. Therefore, it doesn’t matter if you do not understand it intrinsically. Reading it and doing the exercises will heal and nourish at a far deeper level beyond just intellectual. The thought that this will be impactful at a more powerful story than the intellect might sound preposterous. However, I know for another course if I ever have, this is the most important way to learn because it works at a deeper level than ego.

The brilliance of this book is that even having never read ACIM, it is already powerful enough to impact me just by reading this book. It has given me the motivation to buy and work through the ACIM, and I know that along the way, it would significantly impact my life. This last week has had me glued to the book each day to read it. 

I could have probably highlighted this complete book because it had been all good! I accept everything as accurate in this book and the philosophy behind it. This book is eye-opening and confirms many of the things I have considered because we are all connected and one with God. We should always choose love over fear and that the end of the world is not something cataclysmic but awakening and an end to how we currently see ourselves and the world.

It is filled with beautiful reasons why it is great to be in this world. We have such a lot of things to be grateful for! It is also an excellent reminder that we all have the selection to make every decision based on love or out of fear. Choose love, so life will be more joyous. It certainly is not the easiest thing to do all the time, but once you roll in the hay, it sure makes an enormous difference.

I loved how modern he made the book’s teachings and the relativity they were to modern-day life. This is the proper path for me! Exactly where I am at, and what I used to be needing. The concepts are a lifetime of soul-changing! If you are ready and feel this is the journey for you, it will not disappoint. I took numerous notes; I feel fulfilled, balanced, and straightforward. I highly recommend this to everyone!
