Kenneth Wapnick, Ph.D.
One year after A Course in Miracles was published in 1976, in response to requests for an introduction that could be handed out to interested people as a way of presenting the Course and explaining its origin, its scribe Helen Schucman agreed to write one. It was in three parts and was called the Preface. As the third of this three-part Preface, “What It Says” was scribed by Helen by the same process of inner dictation from Jesus as was the Course itself. It introduces, as would a musical overture, the major themes to be discussed, thus providing a succinct overview of the spiritual journey presented in A Course in Miracles. It is a remarkable piece, elevating the reader to the same level of form and content found in the Course itself. This book offers a line-by-line journey through this beautifully written document, in many ways a minor masterpiece.
