Announcing Robert Perry's long-awaited new book, Return to the Heart of God, a work in which he explores the extraordinary journey set out in A Course in Miracles. Return to the Heart of God continues the journey begun in Perry's book, Path of Light.

At last, we can announce Robert Perry's long-awaited new book. Return to the Heart of God is arguably Robert's most important and ambitious work to date. A work in which he explores, with all his customary virtuosity, and in fascinating detail, the extraordinary journey set out in A Course in Miracles.

In the book's introduction, Perry recounts the genesis of A Course in Miracles:

"In 1976 a unique book appeared on the contemporary spiritual scene. 'Appeared' is an apt word in view of the unusual way it came into being. Its words, along with the idea to write it, came from an inner voice, which dictated the material to a reluctant 'scribe.' Its original thought system has the appearance not of depending on prior traditions and discoveries, but of appearing fully formed out of nowhere. Even the publishing of it came not from any plan to widely disseminate it, but from the serendipitous pressure of events. The 'guilty secret' of two academic psychologists, it finally came out of their closet in photocopied form. Once out, it generated a wave of enthusiasm and demand that made publishing it the natural thing to do."

Since discovering the Course in 1981, Perry has been studying, teaching and writing about its spiritual teachings and practical instructions. He has sought to summarize the Course in a way that helps it to be more approachable, a way that, though relatively simple, honors the real breadth and sophistication of the Course's thought system.

Return to the Heart of God is an in-depth exploration of the profound teachings of A Course in Miracles, and a book that continues the journey begun in Path of Light. Here are some early comments:

"Robert Perry beautifully illuminates the principles of A Course in Miracles. I highly recommend it."
