The publisher began sending me books about Jesus. But the more I read them the more I realized that my understanding of Jesus has little to do with traditional Christianity. I understand him within one context, and that is the material of A Course in Miracles. As a student of the Course, I feel I know him. But that is all I know, and therefore all that I could write.

After a few detours (running for President a couple of times sort of knocks you off your publishing schedule!), the book is finally ready to make its appearance in the world. I’m very happy – and just a tad nervous! – to report that the book will be published on May 7th.

For those of you who read my first book, A Return to Love, or are yourselves students of A Course in Miracles, you will recognize The Mystic Jesus as a continuation of a conversation I’ve been having with readers for the last thirty years. Spiritual growth is a continual mining of the mystery at the heart of Creation, and nothing in that mine is deeper than Jesus. I hope I have done him justice.

In addition to the book, I personally read the audio. Both are available for purchase at Harper Collins Publishers.

I look forward to hearing your thoughts on the book, and working with you on making the principles revealed by the mystic Jesus ever more real, more practical, and more relevant to our lives.

With a heart filled with gratitude,
