Subtitle: The Transformational Journey Of Exodus, From The Slavery Of The Ego To The Promised Land Of Spirit
In the Text of A Course in Miracles, Jesus references many passages from the Gospels, restoring them to their true meaning. But what about the Hebrew Bible (or Old Testament)? The historical Jesus would have been intimately familiar with these scriptures, yet they are rarely spoken of in the Course.
In From Plagues to Miracles: The Transformational Journey of Exodus, From the Slavery of Ego to the Promised Land of Spirit, psychiatrist, and Foundation for Inner Peace board member, Robert Rosenthal, M.D. takes a fresh look at the story of Exodus through the lens of ACIM and reveals it to be nothing short of a biblical course in miracles — a road map for the spiritual journey back to God. Pharaoh and Moses symbolize the two aspects of the human mind: Moses represents the Holy Spirit, Pharaoh the ego. We seekers are the Hebrews, enslaved to ego and its goals, but learning to "choose once again" which voice within us we will follow. Seen in this light, the miracles of Exodus — from the burning bush to the ten plagues, the Red Sea parting to manna in the wilderness — become a primer on how miracles show up in our lives to support our journey. Dr. Rosenthal guides us through Exodus using Bible quotes, the Course, helpful metaphors, and examples of miracles from his own life and the lives of his psychotherapy patients.
"The great Biblical stories are diamonds of consciousness with infinite facets of illumination. From Plagues to Miracles takes the story of Moses and gives it new light .... I highly recommend it." — Marianne Williamson author of A Return To Love, The Law Of Divine Compensation, and A Course In Weight Loss.By Robert Rosenthal
