The extraordinary story of America’s most influential and revered psychic
Born in 1877, Edgar Cayce grew up in poverty with only an eighth grade education, but he would prove to have gifts beyond the ordinary and beyond this world. As a young boy, Cayce would converse with his dead grandfather and when he had reached his teens was able to memorize an entire book simply by placing it near his head when he slept. In the summer of 1929 he warned of imminent disaster in the financial markets. His medical readings, which were years ahead of their time, have been shown to be 90 percent accurate. As he grew older, Cayce’s gift led him on a path toward enlightenment and he used his abilities to seek answers to spiritual questions, both for himself and for his followers.
In this definitive audiobook biography, bestselling author Sidney D. Kirkpatrick examines how Cayce’s incredible psychic powers and his powers of healing brought him in contact with some of the most influential people of his day: politicians, stock brokers, scientists, and even Hollywood screenwriters. Today, his followers include Stephen Spielberg and Michael J. Fox, as well as thousands of people whose lives were forever transformed by Cayce.
Author Kirkpatrick was allowed special access by the family to the Cayce Foundation archives, which contained more than 14,000 recorded trance readings—the archives have since been closed to anyone else. Although he began as a skeptic, Kirkpatrick has become a passionate exponent of Cayce’s place in history. Listeners will find this riveting story to be one of Cayce’s most important works.
