5.0 out of 5 stars Its the most readable and complete life story of Cayce
Many of the thousands of members of the Association of Research and Enlightenment were brought in through this book. As the Venture Inward magazine says: Cayce believers are not a cult...its a group of thousands of seekers! As a young boy, Cayce prayed to an angel that he wanted to help people, especially children. His life story is breathtaking and timeless,...

3.0 out of 5 stars Too many cases
I loved the story I loved the religious factor I lost interest in the actual cases which were published word for word, a few examples would have been enough but it over took the book.

This review is from: Story of Edgar Cayce: There Is a River (Paperback)
Many of the thousands of members of the Association of Research and Enlightenment were brought in through this book. As the Venture Inward magazine says: Cayce believers are not a cult...its a group of thousands of seekers! As a young boy, Cayce prayed to an angel that he wanted to help people, especially children. His life story is breathtaking and timeless, moving and mind expanding. Even if you don't think you like metaphysics, its a good read! Linda Schiller-Hanna

5.0 out of 5 stars Edgar Cayce, the benchmark of all knowledge, 7 July 2006
By 
David Langley "enigma" (Lancs, UK) - See all my reviews

This review is from: Story of Edgar Cayce: There Is a River (Paperback)
Quote from book - "The Life readings were to be especially guarded, as they were considered more personal and revealing than physical diagnoses. `Nobody is interested in your kidneys' Edgar observed, `but everyone is interested in your past lives'"

The story of Edgar Cayce often described as being `The Sleeping Prophet' is hard to believe to tell the truth. In normal waking state Edgar was a relatively simple God-fearing man who had a family, a job as a photographer and also read the bible cover to cover for each year of his life. Then under hypnosis Edgar had abilities to this day that are impossible to surpass. In this trance-like state Edgar would give `readings' as they are commonly referred to (over 14,000 in all) which could yield medical diagnoses and treatments that improved the lives of thousands of people, but his readings also yielded information about transcendental realms that could be utilized in present life by millions.

Thomas Sugrue knew the Cayce family very well and so I don't think there is any book that capsulated Edgar Cayce's life as this one does. There are over 1 million copies of `There Is A River' in print and I'm so glad of this fact.

I would not want to ruin the grandeur of the Edgar Cayce story by giving anything away, its quite a large book at 376 pages which includes a fascinating philosophy at the end of Edgar's story and 6 case histories illustrating the methodology of the E.C. readings. This book is so hard to put down, and I give it the highest possible recommendation for others to read and have a fascinating insight into Edgar's life and his readings. Lend it to as many people as you can, I'm buying six copies for friends and family. Enough said.

This review is from: Story of Edgar Cayce: There Is a River (Paperback)
I recommend this book to everybody as a reminder that there are more things in heaven and earth than we could ever know - to believers (of organised religion or otherwise) and non-beievers alike. The great gift that this gentle, god-fearing, unassuming man possesed was truly inspirational, and the numerous accounts of this gift in action makes it hard to be dismissive, and too simplistic to label him a phoney or an 'evil trickster'. It seems to me Cayce was a vessel through which a powerful force for good worked, imparting great knowledge that even he himself couldn't understand. I first read this book several years ago and some of its details are no longer fresh in my mind, so I'm not going to say much more here. But I remember how it impressed me and how I resolved to buy a copy of my own some day, which I've just done (finally). I'm looking forward to reading it again, and other Cayce books. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars A compelling life story, 12 July 2010
This review is from: Story of Edgar Cayce: There Is a River (Paperback)
A compelling account of the life of Edgar Cayce, 'The Sleeping Prophet', a very humble and God-fearing man with extraordinary psychic gifts. I'd known of him for years as perhaps the greatest psychic of the 20th Century, but until reading this book, never knew about the full extent of his work, nor the many challenges and obstacles that he had to overcome throughout his life. Along with Born Remembering by Carol Lamb, this book has taught me so much, not only about the nature of the soul but also that even in the 20th and 21st century, miracles can and do happen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible, and thank God it's been written., 3 April 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Story of Edgar Cayce: There Is a River (Paperback)
This book is Great. It explains so much. From the Agnostic, who wonders why so many religions flourish to the committed of other religions, this book will help put together some of the un-answered questions..."generations to come will scarce believe that one such as he ever in flesh and blood walked the Earth" -Einstein (about Ghandi). Now one can understand (And Believe) why so many unfair things seem to happen. This is the type of book that can change a person's life....For the better....and give Peace.

5.0 out of 5 stars A life-changing book, 26 Mar 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Story of Edgar Cayce: There Is a River (Paperback)
How many times have you heard the overused term "life-changing," usually used to describe decidedly non-life-changing things?
Well, this book is an exception. This biography is the first step to understanding Edgar Cayce: who he was, and the ageless wisdom he left for us. Cayce was "tapped in" to the universal river of knowledge. The lessons here will always remain valid, for they come from God.
After reading this book, read Edgar Cayce's Story of Jesus, Edgar Cayce on Reincarnation, Edgar Cayce on Atlantis, and the others. To continue your studies (and expand your perceptions even further), read Seth Speaks: The Eternal Validity Of The Soul. I feel that these books, along with the Holy Bible, are the best books you can read.

I would recommend this book to anyone interested in holistic and natural remedies and also to anyone interested in spiritualism. I've read a lot about Edgar Cayse's remedies and I love it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Astounding read, 17 May 2012

This review is from: Story of Edgar Cayce: There Is a River (Paperback)
I really enjoyed this book. It was written at a time when Edgar was still alive. This is a story of the amazing Edgar Cayce's life. The ups and downs.
The later 200 or so pages, give insights into what came through on the readings. Which is worth the book price alone, in my opinion. A truely enlightening read, of the life of one of the most accurate psychics.

If I have to find a complaint, it would be on the type size. As the lettering is really small. And at times the narative reads a bit dated. But dont forget that this was written when Edgar was still alive. He passed in the mid 1940's
But don't let these comments put you off. A brilliant book, that will be read again, and again

5.0 out of 5 stars This is THE must read story of America"s greatest psychic, 21 Sep 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Story of Edgar Cayce: There Is a River (Paperback)
.
This book will set the tone for understanding HOW and WHY Edgar Cayce was able to do what he did.
This book should be followed by Edgar Cayce's story of Jesus, and then the Edgar Cayce Ccompanion.
These three books in this order will give the mind a comprehensive understanding of HOW and WHY this man was called the "sleeping prophet"
