A Class in Wonders is a couple of self-study materials published by the Base for Inner Peace. The book's material is metaphysical, and explains forgiveness as placed on daily life. Curiously, nowhere does the book have an author (and it's therefore stated without an author's name by the U.S. Library of Congress). Nevertheless, the writing was written by Helen Schucman (deceased) and William Thetford; Schucman has related that the book's product is dependant on communications to her from an "internal voice" she stated was Jesus. The original version of the book was published in 1976, with a modified model printed in 1996. Area of the content is a training manual, and a student workbook. Since the very first version, the guide has bought many million copies, with translations into nearly two-dozen languages.

The book's sources could be tracked back once again to the first 1970s; Helen Schucman first experiences with the "inner voice" led to her then supervisor, Bill Thetford, to get hold of Hugh Cayce at the Association for Study and Enlightenment. Consequently, an release to  Wapnick (later the book's editor) occurred. At the time of the introduction, Wapnick was clinical psychologist. After conference, Schucman and Wapnik used around a year modifying and revising the material.

Still another introduction, this time around of Schucman, Wapnik, and Thetford to Robert Skutch and Judith Skutch Whitson, of the Basis for Inner Peace. The first printings of the guide for circulation were in 1975. Since then, copyright litigation by the Foundation for Inner Peace, and Penguin Books, has recognized that the content of the initial variation is in the general public domain.

A Program in Wonders is a teaching unit; the program has 3 books, a 622-page text, a 478-page student book, and an 88-page teachers manual. The resources can be studied in the purchase chosen by readers. The information of A Course in Wonders handles both theoretical and the realistic, although program of the book's product is emphasized. The writing is mostly theoretical, and is a basis for the workbook's classes, which are sensible applications.

The workbook has 365 classes, one for each time of the entire year, though they don't have to be done at a pace of one session per day. Probably many such as the workbooks that are familiar to the typical audience from previous knowledge, you're asked to utilize the material as directed. Nevertheless, in a departure from the "normal", the audience isn't required to think what's in the workbook, or even take it. Neither the book or the Program in Wonders is meant to complete the reader's learning; simply, the products are a start.

A Class in Wonders distinguishes between knowledge and perception; truth is unalterable and eternal, while belief is the world of time, change, and interpretation. The planet of notion reinforces the dominant ideas within our minds, and maintains us split from the truth, and separate from God. Belief is limited by the body's limitations in the physical earth, therefore limiting awareness. Much of the experience of the entire world reinforces the confidence, and the individual's separation from God. But, by taking the perspective of Christ, and the style of the Sacred Soul, one learns forgiveness, equally for oneself and others.
