Edgar Cayce, America’s “sleeping prophet,” was one of the most active and trusted psychics of the 20th century. Thousands of people relied on him for insights into their physical and emotional health, spiritual questions, business prospects, and dreams. His writings still inform us today.

Cayce’s readings were stunningly accurate -- about 85 percent of them hit the mark. But some cases seemed to be beyond his abilities.

Why did his powers fail him at times -- if they in fact did?

In The Outer Limits of Edgar Cayce’s Power, his sons, Edgar Evans Cayce and Hugh Lynn Cayce, investigate the questions that challenged the prophet’s seemingly unlimited psychic abilities -- cases involving buried treasure, readings for the dead, and missing persons. They delve into why their father didn’t succeed at times and explore what this teaches us about the nature of psychic perception. They also address allegations that Cayce’s powers were a hoax.

While Cayce has been the subject of many books, The Outer Limits of Edgar Cayce’s Power is the only one written by the two men who knew him best -- his sons -- and offers a truly intimate and illuminating portrait of the renowned psychic.

“This book, written by his two sons, is a pleasant read, and as half of it is devoted to a mini-biography of Cayce, it makes a good and refreshingly honest introduction to the man and his work.” -- Fortean Times


EDGAR EVANS CAYCE and HUGH LYNN CAYCE are the sons of the famous clairvoyant Edgar Cayce and his wife, Gertrude. They are active in the Association for Research and Enlightenment, the organization dedicated to preserving and studying the transcripts of psychic data left by their late father.
