A fascinating biography written by the country's foremost authorities on metaphysics.  The Edgar Cayce story is one of the most compelling in inspirational literature. For more than forty years, the "Sleeping Prophet" closed his eyes, entered into an altered state of consciousness, and spoke to the very heart and spirit of humankind on subjects such as health, healing, dreams, prophecy, meditation, and reincarnation. His more than 14,000 readings are preserved at the Association for Research and Enlightenment, Inc., in Virginia Beach, Virginia. A native of Kentucky with a ninth-grade education, Edgar Cayce accurately predicted two world wars, including the years they began and ended, racial strife in America, the death of John F. Kennedy, and hundreds of other recorded events. He could apparently travel in time and space to treat the ill, and dispensed information that led to innumerable cures where traditional medicine was helpless. The first to introduce many Americans to the concept of reincarnation, Cayce drew on a subconscious Universal Mind for startling information about past and future. In The Sleeping Prophet, Jess Stearn presents the extraordinary story of his life, his healing, his prophecies, and his powerful legacy.… (mer)

I have always been fascinated by Edgar Cayce. I think he just defies explanation. There are those out there that call him a fraud but I don't see how he could have faked his way through the medical descriptions. This book was somewhat of a disappointment. It skips around on a number of topics and gets into areas like past lives and Atlantis that I found wanting. The book was written in the late 1960's and speculates on near term disasters especially global geophysical eruptions he predicted for this time. They did not materialize along with the failure of the appearance of Atlantis which he predicted. So in the prediction realm he did come up short on a number of things. Yet his medical diagnosis of which he put in considerable work he often did seem to be on the mark. Equally amazing was his remedies which were often off the wall but apparently effective. Cayce always mystifies me and always will he was truly a seer. ( )

Interesting biography of a man who thought he could tell us what was going to happen in the future. Regardless of whether Cayce had this talent or not, Stearn makes us respect the man for who he was and what he accomplished. ( )

Edgar Cayce (1877-1945), a Hopkinsville, Kentucky farmer boy, later to be affectionately known as `The Sleeping Prophet', and `America's Most Mysterious Man' gave over fourteen thousand `readings' in his lifetime. They were documented as stenographic records. They are telepathic-clairvoyant statements he had made for some eight thousand+ people over a course of forty-five years. They are well-preserved in paper-files at the Edgar Cayce Foundation/ Association for Research and Enlightenment in Virginia Beach, Virginia. It is an impressive library.

The readings shed light into the science of past lives and rebirths, world events, and historical and geographical theories leading to archeological discoveries. The two sons of Cayce have done their share of work along with many other individuals who have devoted much time researching the contents of the readings. The result is a host of books and video programs of phenomenal caliber. There is also a University thesis on Edgar Cayce's life and work.

In this book, the younger son of Cayce, Edgar Evans analyzes Atlantis-related statements. It is based on the readings given for over 700 people who had one or more incarnations in Atlantis, `the lost continent'. Their current lives were influenced by their past lives.

Atlantis was destroyed by its inhabitants many thousand years ago. They were disrespectful to the environment and ill-treated the land to the point of destruction, just like the present-day human is abusing the environment. It is up to the modern human being to reverse the damage already made, or the world will be destroyed again. Cayce suggests that applying specific principles and assuming certain attitudes to life are the remedial measures.

For the skeptics and non-believers who do not believe in Atlantis or rebirth, the prophet makes no effort to convince anyone. In fact, he states in a reading that we are not `of one mind' and even the most compelling proofs will not convince all.

The author has done an incredibly thorough job on Atlantis at different times between 50000+ years ago to the final destruction 12000(?) years ago. He quotes many crucial readings with explanations and interpretations. Each quote is presented with the date it was stated and its number. He also provides a helpful list of References at the end of the book.

The mind-boggling mystery question still remains: How did the rural farmer boy from a financially poor family, with minimum `modern' education, become such an insightful prophet? One has to look through the readings to see how detailed and graphic his descriptions are, for example, the ancient villages and the roads that lead to them.

He must have brought the gift from his past lives. ( )
