Product Description

From the Back Cover

Who Is Arthur Ford?

the medium . . . the cataly st . . . the unwilling Elijah . . . the man

Even those who knew him well struggle with this question. Now, more than a quarter century after his death in 1971, this anthology brings together a variety of perspectives to give us a fascinating picture of an extraordinary and complicated man.

He was catapulted into fame by his unrivaled talent as a medium, and his life was shaped by his efforts to understand and make peace with this gift. The veracity of the information he offered during trance was confirmed over and over, yet there always lingered that shadow of a doubt. Are these suspicions well-founded, or is it our own reluctance to accept the possibility that life continues after death?

HASH(0x9bf7a60c) out of 5 stars An excellent introduction to Ford 19 July 2000
By A Customer - Published on
I bought this as an introduction to Arthur Ford, and it serves that purpose admirably. It is a shortish volume published by the Spiritual Frontiers Fellowship, which Ford was instrumental in founding. It is, therefore, solidly pro-Ford -- but it doesn't ignore his personal flaws or the controversies surrounding his mediumship. It consists of passages from Ford's own writings as well as the writings of his closest associates. One particularly interesting part concerns an auto wreck in which Ford's sister and a friend were killed and he was left in a coma. Writing 25 years before anyone had heard the term "Near Death Experience," he described a classic NDE. In case you aren't familiar with Ford, he had nearly a 50-year career. Two of his main claims to fame were solving the riddle of the message Houdini had left for his wife ("Rosabelle, believe") and putting Bishop Pike in touch with his late son. I previously hadn't taken Ford seriously due to the controversy surrounding the Houdini episode and some of the other anti-Ford propaganda, but this book led me to do additional digging. Ford clearly seems to have had a great deal of genuine mediumistic ability (whatever that may be). He was also a complex individual who would make an interesting study even if he had been a complete fraud. I would recommend this as an excellent introduction to Ford (or a good summing up as to what he was all about, if you are already familiar with him).

HASH(0x9c02242c) out of 5 stars Most interesting book! 12 May 2007

I first learned of Arthur Ford through reading Ruth Montgomery books. It was Ford who told Ruth she would be doing automatic writing which later lead to all her wonderful metaphysical material. I was always fascinated by Arthur Ford and wished to learn more about him. This book tells it all from his beginnings as a medium who channeled Fletcher, an old friend he knew as a child who passed over after going to war. All the stories contained in this book are fascinating and within the pages I learned Arthur Ford was the medium who cracked the Houdini code! You will read the remarkable accounts of those who attended Ford's sessions and the information they received from Spirit. Its a most interesting read of a medium's life.

HASH(0x9c49fab0) out of 5 stars above paranormal 19 Mar. 2005

I have always been interested in the paranormal and the major men and women of our time that have made a difference.

Have always been interested in Arthur Ford, and that he channelled through an entity named Fletcher - I remember seeing old films where Ford's face would literally change and he would do his reading.

I was saddened that upon Ford's death, Fletcher considered himself free - like he too had a lesson to be learned, and he was so happy to move on - always felt sorry for him.

Will be an interesting read, but look under the tale and feel what I just told you - there is more to the story delve further down and you learn more about Ford, and Fletcher -
