Publisher's Summary

A new edition of the landmark, worldwide best seller on the life of the famed medical clairvoyant and founding father of the new age: Edgar Cayce.

Edgar Cayce (1877-1945) is known to millions today as the grandfather of the new age. A medical clairvoyant, psychic, and Christian mystic, Cayce provided medical, psychological, and spiritual advice to thousands of people who swore by the effectiveness of his trance-based readings.

But Cayce was not always a household name. When a young, skeptical journalist named Thomas Sugrue first met Cayce in 1927, the world had not yet heard of the "sleeping prophet". During years of unique access, Sugrue completed his landmark biography, which on its publication in 1942 brought national attention to Cayce and stands as the sole record written during the seer's lifetime.

This edition includes a new introduction by historian Mitch Horowitz. It highlights the enduring significance of Cayce's message and the role this book played in its dissemination.

Fascinating

The start of the book was a little slow but the second half of the book had some amazing insights that have made me want to learn more.

Mind blowing!

I absolutely love this book. It is very Christian centric yet shows the commonality of all religion.

Great story of the life of a truly remarkable man !

I have read many books gleaned from Edgar Cayce's material but never read the original biography of the man. This shed an interesting perspective onto the collective narrative thereof. It was very good overall and offered great insight and context on the story of the man.

A Journey in a Book

I would give 4 1/2 stars for the story only because the final chapters are tacked on and in my opinion unnecessary.

All in all, it is a beautiful biography of an ordinary man with great powers. Very insightful and inspiring.
