It is for anyone who is inspired by the life and teachings of Jesus. This prayer-meditation book compiled by mystic David Hoffmeister will illuminate the mind with a deeper understanding of the teachings of the Bible and A Course in Miracles (ACIM). Each chapter contains Bible verses, side-by-side with ACIM quotes, providing a dialogue of clarity, in response to questions, such as: “Jesus, what is my relationship to you? What is a miracle?” and, “How will the world end?” Two thousand years ago Jesus spoke profound words to lead us out of the darkness and into the Light and Love of His Grace. Today through A Course in Miracles he continues to bless the world with clear and direct teachings on forgiveness and salvation. This book is a gateway to opening to deep Self Realization; that we are the Christ Mind—we are love itself. As the Bible so clearly states: “Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 2:5) And from A Course in Miracles: “This is the invitation to the Holy Spirit. I have said already that I can reach up and bring the Holy Spirit down to you, but I can bring Him to you only at your own invitation. The Holy Spirit is in your right mind, as He was in Mine. The Bible says, ‘May the mind be in you that was also in Christ Jesus,’ and uses this as a blessing. It is the blessing of miracle-mindedness. It asks that you may think as I thought, joining with me in Christ thinking.” (T-5.I.3:1-6) “The teachings of Jesus and the way in which he practiced it belonged to the whole realm of middle Eastern mythology. In which at some point beings fell out of the pure Light dimension into this plane and took on the role of darkness. Truth was the realm of Light and followers of Jesus would return to the realm of Light. Jesus was from the realm of Light and and that the realm of Light andTruth. The earth was a fallen domain, ultimately to be the place perhaps of a great war between evil and good forces, the force of Light and the forces of darkness, and earth was a place that was ultimately just to be dissolved and judged. And all of those who had become sympathetic with the Truth of Light would be drawn up into the subtle Light world. I think that most of us could agree with Mumford’s astute assessment of the historical impact of Jesus of Nazareth on Western culture. However, many thinkers, theologians, mystics, and artists speak and paint diverse and often contradictory pictures of who Jesus was, what he taught, and what his appearance truly meant – and means – to humanity. Jesus has been variously envisioned as the incarnate and only Son of God, an enlightened master of the ancient mystery schools, an inspired but merely human teacher of love and brotherhood, or even a shrewd opportunist grabbing for political advantage by falsely donning the cloak of the Messiah. And the multitude of churches, cults, schools, and sects that claims Jesus as their source and inspiration is equally diverse and contradictory.
