Item description for Scientific and Pastoral Perspectives on Intercessory Prayer: An Exchange Between Larry Dossey, M. D. and Health Care Chaplains by Larry Dossey & Larry VandeCreek...

Many people agree that prayer is a central feature of spiritual life. But what is prayer? Scientific and Pastoral Perspectives on Intercessory Prayer: An Exchange Between Larry Dossey, MD, and Health Care Chaplains explores common questions and concerns about intercessory prayer, or the act of praying for the benefit of others, from several different points of view. Chaplains, priests, ministers, and clergy in the health care profession will learn how prayer is examined from sources other than traditional Christian views, such as parapsychology. From Scientific and Pastoral Perspectives on Intercessory Prayer, you will learn what prayer means to some chaplains and to their ministry and how prayer can make drastic changes in the lives of your parishioners, patients, and their families.Written by eight chaplains, the articles in this text are in response to an essay by Larry Dossey, a nationally known physician who speaks and writes about prayer. The contributors to Scientific and Pastoral Perspectives on Intercessory Prayer discuss his points of view on intercessory prayer, which are based on quantum physics. You will learn if this area of physics can make a difference in how you practice your faith, how you worship, and what you think about or expect from prayer. Scientific and Pastoral Perspectives on Intercessory Prayer examines several other topics related to prayer, including: discovering whether or not intercessory prayer is truly different from other methods of meditationexploring the relationship between intercessory prayer and meditative or praise prayerlinking prayers and their results to the expectations or intentions of those who engage in themdifferentiating between an intercession and a wishdeciding for yourself what constitutes evidence or proof when discussing the aspects of prayerhow our opinion of prayer relates to how we think about the universe and about God Since Scientific and Pastoral Perspectives on Intercessory Prayer focuses on the cooperation between science and theology, you will discover that, in many instances, people believe that the power of prayer should be taken seriously. This text also shows you how the questions and functions of prayer are shared by everyone, despite religious differences or methods of praying. Encompassing research and personal experiences, Scientific and Pastoral Perspectives on Intercessory Prayer will help you answer questions about religion and its role in the lives of parishioners, patients, and clergy, as well as provide you with evidence to the positive and healing power of prayer.

Reviews - What do customers think about Scientific and Pastoral Perspectives on Intercessory Prayer: An Exchange Between Larry Dossey, M.D. and Health Care Chaplains?

Science and Pastoral Perspectives on Intercessory Prayer  Apr 8, 2010
Dr. Dossey bridges science and faith in a meaningful way, with real life evidence of a higher being.
 
Thought-provoking  Jan 30, 2010
I found this book to be deeply thought-provoking. I especially identify with Larry Dossey's thoughts on intercessory prayer, since I am a nurse and an energy worker in the healthcare field. I had not considered in depth many of the ideas presented, but believing that thoughts are energy, and that prayer is expressed thought, then the effect of intercessory prayer as a transfer of energy makes sense to me. I enjoyed this book.
