Window of God is author T. Lee Baumann's account of the work of clairvoyant Edgar Cayce. Baumann initially reports the influence that Cayce's work has had on his life and writing in his book, God at the Speed of Light. In Window to God, Baumann explores several of Edgar Cayce's "readings" which have been documented and cataloged by the Association for Research and Enlightenment, the non-profit organization Cayce founded in 1931. These readings fall into the categories of "physical" dealing with medical issues and "life" readings that focus primarily on past lives. Dr. Baumann's scientific and medical analysis of Cayce's work upholds the accurateness of many of the clairvoyant's readings while also uncovering faulty information. Baumann provides some background information on Cayce including his ability to learn by sleeping on his books as a child and the clairvoyant's first reading at age 24. As Baumann reviews examples from the 14,000 plus readings Cayce gave during his lifetime, one of the most interesting revelations is Cayce's own doubt in his abilities. As a Christian, Cayce initially questioned the outcomes of his readings, especially those that pertained to reincarnation. The author notes that Cayce drew his knowledge of a person he was reading from "the Source" a spiritual body of knowledge. Baumann includes anecdotes that describe his experiences with religion and opening up to the possibility of psychic ability which adds a personal touch to the book that balances out the author's scientific offerings. Dr. Baumann has practiced internal and geriatric medicine and is the author of six books. His writing on spirituality and psychic ability opens a door for readers to the unexplained. The author's work also speaks to the possibility of changing one's mindset regarding what is accepted about religion, spirituality and the human mind. In Window of God, Baumann uses Cayce's story to challenge the Christian perspective on reincarnation, pointing out a sampling of biblical verses that affirm this phenomenon. While the author challenges conventional thinking about paranormal activity, he also expresses that his personal ideas on these matters are ever changing. What I took away from reading Window of God and God at the Speed of Light, is that Dr. Baumann is a scientist whose heart is open to the mysteries of the unknown. Window to God is a fascinating look at the work of an influential clairvoyant and his unexpected impact on a man of science. Melissa Brown Levine for Independent Professional Book Reviewers
