A Course in Miracles

Genesis & Timeline

William WhitsonKen WapnickBeginning in 1982, at the genesis of the translation program of the Foundation for Inner Peace, management of the translations had been a partnership between Dr. William W. Whitson (pictured on left), representing the Foundation for Inner Peace, and Dr. Kenneth Wapnick (pictured on right), representing the Foundation for A Course in Miracles. As time went by, Dr. Whitson assumed primary responsibility for selecting and financing translators and arranging for publication while Dr. Wapnick was responsible for teaching and training all the translators in the meaning of the Course. Together, those two people guided the evolution of 24 translations, each translator requiring between five and ten years to complete the work. This collaboration continued until Dr. Kenneth Wapnick passed away in December 2013. The Translation Program continues under the direction of Dr. Whitson using the extensive Teaching Materials of Dr. Wapnick.
