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.
