View all copies of this ISBN edition:

God, Self, and Evil: A Miracle Theodicy advances from two categories of work, as indicated by the subtitle. First, this book is a Miracle Studies book, that is, a text that unfolds teaching from A Course in Miracles. The ACIM teachings of central importance in God, Self, and Evil are: (1) God: the nature, acts, and thoughts of God; (2) Self: our true Self and the false self; and (3) Evil: our experience of evil, the "unreality" of evil, and how to find help in our experience of suffering. These discussions of Course teachings are interwoven with a lucid and logical refutation of the atheists' argument that God cannot exist because evil does exist. Thus, the second category of work approached in God, Self, and Evil is theodicy. Theodicy is a branch of theology that ponders the problem of evil. In brief: if God is all-powerful and all-loving, then why is there evil (and suffering and sorrow)? In this book, traditional and modern answers to that question are acknowledged and found wanting. The conceptual and practical answers to the question, as found in ACIM, are explicated. Helen Schucman, the scribe of ACIM, referred to the Course as something for the intellectuals. Following in that manner, Mr. Hellmann has provided a book that can truly be called "Course-based scholarship".
