The Way of ForgivenessTHE WAY OF FORGIVENESS: Letting Go, Easing Stress, and Building Strength by D. Patrick Miller. At a time when angry shouting seems to dominate the airwaves and public discussions, Fearless Books announces the return of a classic book dedicated to the radical notion that forgiveness is the key to real power. This was Patrick's first book, and it's celebrating its 20th anniversary. Watch the video about Patrick’s JAFO publishing experience here:

THE WAY OF FORGIVENESS first appeared in 1994 as A Little Book of Forgiveness (Viking) and has since changed the lives of many thousands of readers. The new Fearless Books edition features revised material throughout, including expanded instructions for the classic “Seven Steps of Forgiveness” devised by author D. Patrick Miller, based on more than two decades of studying and practicing the principles of forgiveness in his own life.

Letter to a Prisoner: From a career criminal to seeker of the Truth by Joe Wolfe. My buddy, Joe Wolfe, spent ten years in prison for armed robbery, much of it in solitary confinement because of his escape attempts. He was a bad boy. He'd probably be dead by now if it wasn't for his remarkable spiritual transformation, which is described in his book.

I think you'll be moved by it.

From Plagues to MiraclesFrom Plagues to Miracles by Dr. Robert Rosenthal. Bob is a Board Member of the Foundation for Inner Peace, a distinguished Professor of Psychiatry, as well as a novelist and screenwriter. Bob takes the story of Exodus and does an interesting presentation of Moses being the Voice of the Holy Spirit, the Pharaoh being the voice of the ego, and the Hebrews being the decision maker, but too afraid to listen to the Holy Spirit.

I highly recommend this book, which you can get at either of the following two links. Enjoy!

Questions for J - And the Love that He Gave Me by Barret Hedeen. Course teacher and workshop leader, Hedeen shares his experiences of his inner guide J in this exciting new book that comes with a complimentary online component for exploring your reality as one with Source. Gary says "Barret Hedeen gives us an inspirational, soul baring treatise into the difference between two different motivations; that of the ego, which is to convince us that we have somehow separated ourselves from our Source, Which is God, and the Holy Spirit, Whose motivation is to teach us that there is no such thing as separation! I highly recommend this book to any sincere seeker of the truth."

Spoken MiraclesSpoken Miracles: A Companion to The Disappearance of the Universe by Lucia Espinosa. Near the end of D.U., one of my teachers mentioned that there were 365 quotations from the modern spiritual guide ACourse in Miracles used in the book. We were told that if these passages were read on their own, they could either be used as a thought for the day throught the year, or they could simply be read like a book, in which case they would constitute a "refresher course" by Jesus, the voice of A Course in Miracles, in his own words.

I am very grateful to Lucia for putting this work together and making it available to the world.

Closing the Circle: Pursah's Gospel of Thomas and A Course in Miracles

There's a great new book out that I liked so much I agreed to write the Foreword for it. It's called Closing the Circle: Pursah's Gospel of Thomas and A Course in Miracles. It's written by Rogier van Vlissingen, a scholar who puts it all together in showing the relationships between these two great works and how The Disappearance of the Universe is the bridge between the two of them. It's exciting and educational reading! Rogier also explains  all 70 of the original sayings in the Thomas Gospel in a way that's never really been done before (except for the 22 that Pursah explained in DU.)

As some of you know, Pursah gave the correct version of the original Gospel of Thomas to me in my second book, Your Immortal Reality. Now Rogier compares Thomas, DU and ACIM in such a way as to demonstrate how the original message of Jesus was destroyed by the Church, but is resurfacing today. You can get much more info about this amazing book by going to this link:

Long Time No See Book Cover
Long Time No See: Diaries of an Unlikely Messenger
by Carrie Triffet

A powerfully moving, sometimes profane and often hilarious account of one person's single minded search for enlightenment. Also includes The Crash Course, a short, plainspoken synopsis of A Course in Miracles. Winner of the 2010 Independent Publisher Book Award.

Gary says, “Using plain, everyday language, Long Time No See clearly illuminates the principles of A Course in Miracles as they apply to everyday life. A genuinely helpful and interesting book. Did I mention it’s also funny as hell?”

Leaving the Desert BookGary's endorsement:
Leaving the Desert: Embracing the Simplicity of A Course in Miracles, is one of the most practical spiritual books ever written. I was struck by Pauline’s ability to clearly and simply state the principles of the Course, from the beginning of her journey, through a genuine spiritual search, to her discovery of a new direction, to the understanding of miracles, and ultimately to the miracle of forgiveness in undoing the deviousness of the ego. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is on a spiritual path, and especially to those who want to get on the fast track.”

Don't Fix Me Book Cover


Gary recommends Sally Patton's book, DON'T FIX ME I'M NOT BROKEN: Changing Our Minds About Ourselves and Our Children. Parenting is a spiritual Classroom. DON'T FIX ME I'M NOT BROKEN discusses ways to recognize that people are always doing the best they can with the knowledge and awareness they have in each moment. It explores the idea that we always have a choice and by changing our thoughts we change our story and experience of our labeled children from one of struggle and sadness to one of joy and peace.
