Overview

A complete guide to the work of the remarkable twentieth-century seer Edgar Cayce, featuring Cayce's most intriguing and influential readings, and a biographical introduction to his life.

Edgar Cayce is one of the most mysterious men of the twentieth century. Sometimes called "The Sleeping Prophet," he was prone to pick up taglines that reflected the sensationalistic side of his work rather than its real depth and meaning. The core of his life's work was actually being an intuitive healer and Christian mystic.

More than one hundred books have been written about his teachings and his life story. Yet no book has combined insightful commentary with lengthy, verbatim selections of the full range of his contribution to holistic healing, practical spirituality, and the psychology of the soul.

The Essential Edgar Cayce gives the reader an understanding of each major area in which Cayce helped pioneer the modern holistic living movement, as well as the contemporary popular approach to spirituality that weaves together the best of Eastern and Western religious traditions. The book's substantial introduction frames Cayce and his life's work, and is followed by eight topical sections in which commentaries by Mark Thurston guide the reader through some of the seer's most significant readings.

Here is a truly integral portrait of the life and work of one of the twentieth century's most fascinating spiritual figures.

    Excellent Overview of the Readings given by Edgar Cayce during his lifetime.

    This is an excellent book for the person who is somewhat familiar with the life and work of Edgar Cayce. Mark Thurston does an excellent job of pulling together the basic substance of Cayce's readings that cover the essential subject matter thereof. The book would probably be best understood by him or her who has read one of several biographies of this interesting man e.g., "There Is A River", "The Sleeping Prophet", or "Edgar Cayce: An American Prophet" etc. Without a basic understanding Cayce's life and work and what he stands for, this book is going to be difficult to read. So I suggest that anyone who is considering buying this book should read one of the above biographies; once that is done and the reader wants to dig deeper into the subject matter, you won't be able to put this book down. A great read. I, now, plan to read everything I can get my hands on about this modern prophet.

    Pretty boring read

    Pretty boring read...not the most interesting writer. He tends to repeat himself using different words. The Cayce readings themselves are much more interesting.
