?It is the Word of God, to be kept holy forever??
?This time there will be no failure, no loss of truth, no misunderstanding and no misrepresentation
I will direct its growth as it reaches from the paper on which
it was written into the hearts for which it was intended.?
(Special Message 12/31/75)
As preface to this edition of A Course In Miracles, we acknowledge

The task of editing, deciding which material would be excluded from
the original dictation and that to be included in the published version, was
entrusted to William Thetford. The edit of the Text used herein is Bill?s, as
he was directed by Jesus.The Workbook and Manual are as close to the un-
edited generation of ?scribed? dictation from Jesus to Helen as is available
to us at this time.
Similarly, the CAPITALIZATION and hyphenation of some of the
words, along with the use of parenthesis and punctuation, remain consistent
with the style of the ?scribes? used in the source material.
We recognize and honor the original intent of our Savior Jesus to be
known as author with Helen as a ?just? scribe whose name is not to be
associated with authorship, but with the willingness to hear his voice and
?Do not attempt to break God?s copyright,
because His Authorship alone can copy right.?
