Publisher's Summary

A New York Times best-selling author and documentary filmmaker presents the definitive biography of Edgar Cayce, the father of the New Age and harbinger of alternative medicine - the mesmerizing story of a simple man with a complex gift.

Edgar Cayce Jr., born in 1877 in rural Kentucky and educated only through the eighth grade, was a man with special powers. Known as the "sleeping prophet", Cayce was an endless source of information. Awake, he had no knowledge of any of the subjects he discussed, but in a trance he prescribed medical treatments, predicted future world events, interpreted past lives (including the life of Jesus Christ), designed innovative technologies, wrote screenplays, spoke in foreign languages, and brought spiritual messages from the "other side." Although he never examined patients and often gave trance readings for people hundreds of miles away, his medical diagnoses were deemed to be correct nearly 90 percent of the time, and his predictions were often uncannily accurate.

The first researcher to have unlimited access to thousands of Cayce's documents, Sidney Kirkpatrick has written a fascinating, definitive biography of a humble man whose psychic work prefigured the New Age movement and the alternative-health movement and brought him a huge following.

The Final Chapter

I suggest reading "Many Mansions" by Dr. Gina Cerminara & "There is a River" by Thomas Sugrue first as introductions to the capabilities of the Trance Psychic/Healer Edgar Cayce.

Once you are then fully aware of Cayce's true capabilities, this book becomes far more interesting as it reveals the life story - both good & bad times - of the man with those attributes.

My point is that, if I had read this book first, I may have had difficulty getting past the first few chapters. But knowing who Cayce was made it worth the read, as it becomes more & more interesting the further one progresses through the book.

It is interesting to note just how many unscrupulous people - even the medical & legal establishments - tried to take advantage of Mr Cayce - something not emphasized in other Cayce works.

In summary I found it to be one of those books that I just "could not put down".

Edgar Cayce revealed

Cayce’s health readings for countless individuals proved prophetic. He was a sleeping prophet because the information and wisdom provided clearly did not come from his own mind and mental abilities. Case in point was his poor management of both his health and financial understanding.

However many around him did profit from both in accordance with the readings and adherence.

I’m not convinced of his many past life reading for his friends and family.

But one thing I do concur is that people do incarnate as a whole group thus interactions and karmas can be worked out in those lifetimes. Rebirth is real and it’s a spiritual crime in my knowledge that it was removed from the Bible making Christianity one of the few major religions in the world to discard this wisdom and knowledge.

An outstanding book!

Kirkpatrick does an amazing job in this book! He not only goes into great detail in reviewing Cayce's life history, but he gives a tremendous amount of information on the Readings. Outstanding!

GREAT. ..

This book was very well written and very well narrated.
However, it was more then I think I wanted to know about Edgar Cayce.
There was more of his trails and tribulations as a human in this book rather then the miracles of his actual readings. It had a lot of his readings, but seems to have missed the magic of them.

Enlightening

This book has been an eye opener for me. The reader does an incredible job with expression. the only downfall is the occasional scratch word but they did not present a problem for me.

A very thorough account of Edgar Cayce's life

This book was well written and the narrator did an excellent job with the audiobook. It gave an in-depth account of Edgar Cayce's life without being boring or partial. I would highly recommend this if anyone is interested in Cayce's work and background.

another angle on Cayces remarkable life.

I loved the narrator and additional information and perspectives provided on "the work". Not dry at all.

Wonderful Account

Fascinating trip through his life and times. Reveals a man content to live his life and become a tool for people in need of help. And an account of other request through his medium.
I like the closing thought of prophets to come.
