9780312959883: A Seer Out of Season: The Life Of Edgar Cayce

The gift of prohecy...

Millions worldwide have turned to the writings of Edgar Cayce for advice on holistic medicine and spiritual growth. Hailed as the father of the New Age movement, his works have been translated into dizens of languages, and he has received outpourings of acclaim from individuals, doctors, and spiritual leaders around the globe.

A Seer out of Season...

Drawing from his experience as Cayce's longtime associate, Dr. Harmon Bro has written the first-ever full-length biography of the gifted spiritualist. Long awaited by followers and skeptics alike, this definitive, intimate account tells the story of how an enigmatic Kentucky farm boy with no formal education became the soft-spoken seer who inspired so many. It is also the story of a man hounded by disbelievers who again and again branded him a charlatan--only to walk away stunned by his power.

From Publishers Weekly:

Edgar Cayce's soul, in its sundry incarnations, had a checkered pedigree: as Ra Ta, Egyptian high priest, circa 10,500 B.C.; as John Bainbridge, scoundrel English soldier stalking the American colonies; as Persian warrior-king Uhjltd (pronounced "yoolt"); as Dale, illegitimate son of Louis XIV's lovely daughter Gracia; and as Greek chemist Armitidides, who knew Alexander the Great (whose governess was reincarnated as Cayce's wife Gertrude). Or so we gather from Bro, who ought to know, since he took notes when "the prophet of Virginia Beach" gave hundreds of "life readings" and performed wondrous medical diagnoses whilst in a trance state. Written in inflated, fuzzy prose that sets the brain spinning, this biography-cum-memoir by an ordained minister and psychologist preaches to the converted. The open-minded reader looking for a critical appraisal of the psychic is left bewildered as to how Cayce's "covenant with God" works itself out.
