Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Competently combining traditional Christian philosophy and prayer styles with common sense self-help, this work shows how to use prayer to cure, alleviate or prevent the blows of daily life. The authors add little new information or methods to the canon of psychotherapy, but gently remind readers that they can easily take small steps toward caring about themselves and others. In several very brief chapters, this book could work well as a resource for daily affirmations for people who are facing medical or personal crises. Medical ethicists and researchers have been looking into the impact of prayer on recovery from illness or injuries. Some of those studies have indicated that prayer can have a positive effect on a patient's recovery. Authors Caine and Kaufman use the results to inspire readers to pray, rather than educate them about how prayer works. They give clear instructions on the mechanics of prayer, and illustrate their points with passages from the Bible and other Christian writings. The final section of the book, "Prayer Prescriptions," gives a heavily Christian perspective on dealing with subjects ranging from abuse to financial difficulties to weight loss. Prayer, Faith and Healing focuses on empowerment of Christians in crisis, and succeeds in reaching that modest goal. (June)

From Booklist

Prayer can achieve miracles, and Caine and Kaufman tell how to find and take paths to such meaningful prayer, describing the steps and citing encouraging examplars. A major portion of this thick book is occupied by "Prayer Prescriptions," designed for specific spiritual and psychological difficulties and a few medical conditions. Primary emphasis is on spiritual and psychological woes, however, so that, for example, the section on pain deals only with the soul and the mind, not with physical pain, which can be a devastating medical problem. Those seeking an optimistic view of life and its difficulties will be well pleased with the book. Do you or a family member have a terminal illness? Then look on the bright side. Have you or a family member suffered a catastrophic event? Then take heart in the pastoral assertion "God is still in control." No hard references concerning prayer's efficacy are cited, but popular prayer-boosting authors Larry Dossey, Robert Benson, and John Koenig often are.

Format: Hardcover
Although writen from a Christian perspective with many Biblical verses, this is a valuable book for anyone who has reached the point in their lives where they have found that it is time to wake up to or to deepen their spirituality, whatever their religious or philosophical beliefs or orientation.

Prayer can be the most profound means of finding meaning and purpose in your life and for integrating and transforming your future, and that of the people around you. This is a practical book, so it does not get into the accumulating data about the power of prayer, both for buttressing your own health and well-being, but also for helping those around you. Suffice to say that whatever sceptics may claim, there is plenty of empirical data to support the power of prayer, and to prove that it is far from being simple superstition or neurosis.

This is a book that can be savored as a multi-course banquet, or used as fast food in times of need. I can think of few books that are so full of practical advice and inspiration.

Highly recommended.

This is an excellent book for me. I chose it because Dr. Bernie Siegal is one of the authors. I do have health problems and am choosing different tools, in addition to physicians and medication, for healing. The beginning is interesting with scientific experiments used to "prove" that prayer does work in blind studies. I feel that this book is helping me.

This book has changed my faith in such a positive manner. It's not the "purpose driven" mentality but one of purposeful prayers during different times in one's life, both joyful celebration and the trials and tribulations that we all face. Very common sense and practical.
