Holy Shift! is an excellent resource for readers looking to quickly access some of the principles and underlying themes of A Course in Miracles. A Course in Miracles is a self led study guide that combines psychology and theology and appeals to readers to create a universal spirituality of love and unity versus appealing to a particular religion. First published in 1975 and authored by Dr. Schucman, A Course in Miracles is now offered through the Foundation for Inner Peace (FIP). A detailed description of the book and course is available at their website.
The primary criticism for this book is that there isn’t any new or original material from the author. All of the material and quotes seems to be derived directly from A Course in Miracles. If you are new to A Course in Miracles and are looking for a brief, time efficient introduction this book is an excellent tool; however, it would be more cost effective and complete to just buy A Course in Miracles. If you have completed A Course in Miracles and would like a small portable daily reminder, this book may serve you well.
