Synopses & Reviews
In this groundbreaking classic linking prayer and health, physician Larry Dossey shares the latest evidence connecting prayer, healing, and medicine. Using real-life examples and personal anecdotes, Dossey proves how prayer can be as valid a healing tool as drugs or surgery.
Dossey explores which methods of prayer show the greatest potential for healing; presents compelling evidence that patients' and doctors' belief in a treatment increases its efficacy; explains that discoveries in modern physics allow us to integrate the spiritual and the scientific and make the power of prayer provable in the lab; and much more.
Provocative, engaging, and powerfully instructive, Healing Words restores the spiritual art of healing to the science of medicine.
A fascinating and spiritual study of the meaning and purpose of prayer, how we pray, and how prayer helps even when it doesn't answer our specific intentions. Wise and comforting, Larry Dossey is a devoted medical practitioner and counselor, explaining how we conceive of prayer and how those notions change as society changes.
