Kenneth Wapnick, Ph.D.
This book consists of a substantial expansion of the discussion in The Obstacles to Peace, first published in 1987. In revising his earlier work, Kenneth has added an extensive introduction and epilogue, and tripled the discussion, including many more references to other passages in the Course. In addition, the old question-and-answer format has been changed to enhance the flow of the material.
"The Obstacles to Peace" sections present the important themes in A Course in Miracles, stated in powerful and beautiful language as well. These range from the metaphysical theme of how God did not create the world and the body—and indeed knows absolutely nothing about them—to the specific teachings on the projection of guilt, and its undoing through the practice of forgiveness in our special relationships. There are also some incisive passages where Jesus speaks of himself and the projections that have been put upon him, emphasizing the important role the ego has given him in its thought system. This distortion is corrected by Jesus making clear the nature of the role he has in his thought system, undoing the ego through helping us to change our minds about what we think and perceive.
