A Course in Miracles in "Gnostic America"





I'm delighted to say that I've been invited by April DeConick and Jeffrey Kripal to present a paper on A Course in Miracles at a conference on "Gnostic America: The Afterlives of Gnosticism in American Religion and Culture" at Rice University this March! I've written on the Course before ("'Knowledge is Truth'': A Course in Miracles as Neo-Gnostic Scripture"), and this paper, entitled "American Gnosis: Jesus Mysticism in A Course in Miracles," expands on my previous work. The conference papers will be published by Brill in a 2019 issue of Gnosis: The Journal for Gnostic Studies.
