This meditation book is based on an original book, A Course in Miracles written in old Christian English by two psychology professors at Columbia University whom neither were spiritual but offers spiritual philosophy which is conveyed in their book. All meditation verses notate the entry utilized by Holden from the Course textbook, Workbook, the Manual for Teachers, Psychotherapy, or Song of Prayer supplement. A Course in Miracles goal is to teach people to make an “exchange of separation for salvation” maintaining the exchange is an inner gift. One of the psychologist authors stated she began to have dreams of a spiritual nature and decided to share her spiritual experiences and their meanings with the world.

The Acknowledgment section is where Holden states, “A Course in Miracles has blessed my life and work.” Holden is also a student of the course program and uses its philosophy and information in his speaking engagements and workshops he organizes around the world.

Holy Shift! representing A Course in Miracles is similar to the Book of Proverbs in the Bible and reads like a sage of the ancient world sharing their perception and wisdom with those who listen. Holden warns not to replace this course with the Bible but rather use it as an accompaniment with other Bible study supplements. The book has an uplifting appeal for people needing further encouragement outside of their regular Biblical daily reading. I recommend to those who are curious regarding A Course in Miracles and want more understanding of its philosophy and teachings.

I received this book from Hay House Book Nook in exchange for an unbiased opinion in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission guidelines.
