Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

The Edgar Cayce story is one of the most compelling in inspirational literature. Over the course of forty years the Sleeping Prophet time and again closed his eyes, entered an altered state of consciousness, and spoke to the very heart and spirit of mankind on subjects such as health, healing, dreams, meditation, sexuality, and reincarnation. His more than 14,000 readings are preserved at the Association for Research and Enlightenment. And now, with the guidance of Edgar Cayce, we can learn how to mine our psychic strengths for happier and healthier lives. Here are the readings of The Sleeping Prophet, condensed and simplified--the wisdom to help us make the right decisions affecting all facets of our lives. Cayce speaks out on: The sources of psychic development, reincarnation, Karma and grace, dreams, meditation, prayer, personal health (including diet and exercises,) holistic healing, sexuality, spirituality, rejuvenation, religion, spiritual psychology, and much more. Cayce offers us the keys to insight, enlightenment, and total fulfillment.

While Edgar Cayce may indeed be "the sleeping prophet," Herbert Puryear is some type of angel himself in how he interprets Cayce's work. This book is so far beyond anything I've read in the spiritual/New Age realm that it needs to take its place in the pantheon of all-time great non-fiction works.

As others have noted, Puryear's tone is almost scientific, but don't fear boredom or confusion by my using that word. Each sentence is so loaded with such profound truths and wisdoms that very often, I could only read a few paragraphs before having to put it down in order to reflect on what I'd just read. Puryear is a genius, pure and simple, and it's his generosity of heart and spirit that gives the work a poignancy one finds in any great work of art. Believe me, it's that good.

This will have a permanent home on my bookshelf, and I'm sure that as I read it again and again, I'll discover buried truths I didn't see (or wasn't ready for) the first time around.

Seriously, I can't believe someone is out there who can write this well. Do yourself a favor and buy it.

I've read many self-help books. One of my favorites was "The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People" by Steven Covey, which was great! But, "The Edgar Cayce Primer" takes the cake! Many self transformation books talk about how to deal with life situations on the physical plain, but very few books go back to the Source or the Root of all creation. This book is very repetitve on the subjects of "Oneness" and the first two most important Commandments, which I think, is a good thing because this book stresses these points showing the reader that this is the only way to self-fulfillment, coming out of living in darkness, loving yourself, spiritual strength. I could go on forever about how this book is changining and continually changes my life.

This book, IMHO, is something that everyone should read. It takes all of Edgar Cayce's readings and distills from them humanity's place in the universe with relation to God and how that relationship affects us in our lives. His explanations make a lot of sense and are not at all vague. I read too many books, and this one is one if my favorites of all time.

Having only ever heard the name edgar cayce, and not knowing, what person it belonged to, I was intrigued to find out with this mystical name was all about.

I was led on a journey I did not expect to take. It helped open my eyes to the interconnectedness of everything.

One major thing I liked about this book, is it's not written in a way that sounds like hokey spiritual, better your life crud....IT's written in a way that is almost scientific. The constant relation to the concious, subconcious, and the superconcious, allow you to contstruct relationships in your mind about everything this book goes into.

Well written, easy to read, and a great start at understanding the metaphysical...I highly recommend for anyone who has even the slightest interest in the metaphysical or spiritual realm, but has no idea where to start. This will give you the background KNOWLEDGE-not experiance-to continue discovering all there is out there.

The Cayce materials are metaphysical master pieces. Cayce and Andrew Jackson Davis are the two primeer American psychics. This book is very well written and presents information from the 14,300+ readings of E. Cayce to assist one in knowing ones self. Thinking persons should be aware that reading this book may start you on a path of self discovery. The question is are you ready to start on this glorious quest to "Know Thyself" as admonished by E. Cayce materials.
The book There Is A River by Thomas Surgrue, about EC launched me on the quest over 5 decades ago. There is still so much to learn and so much less time to spend learning....
Puryear has written and excellent book, enjoy----

Some chapters of this book felt like a sermon based on a mix of Cayce's work and the bible, while other chapters were more focused directly on Cayce. At times, I had a sense of an unsolicited visitor at my doorstep asserting their beliefs. However, I continued to read and enjoyed the chapters focused primarily on interpretations of Cayce regarding other subject matter such as health. I plan to review some of the Cayce/bible chapters after directly consulting some of the Cayce readings. It may be the case that my personal interpretations will mirror those of the author but I currently feel that the author's studies of the material have brought him to a comfortable comprehension I cannot yet claim without direct study of the Cayce material to form my own interpretation. The author does a good job of pulling the disparate material together with a common background theme. Overall, the material does appear to offer a good general primer, as advertised. After finishing the book, I wish I would have been exposed to more Cayce material first so that I had a better foundation to understand the author's vision. In summary, without foreknowledge of Cayce material it's not possible to determine whether the author is providing a truly genuine representation or selectively referencing material to support a personal interpretation (which is positive, hopeful, and generally informative overall). This book would best be read with access to the Cayce readings for proper context unless the reader is already familiar with Cayce's body of work.
