Description
Having established the scientific link between and healing in prayer his previous bestselling books. Dr Larry Dossey -- the nation's fore-most authority and most sought-after speaker on the subject -- takes the logical next step in documenting the full range of prayer's power. Just as people can use prayer to positively affect health and healing, it is also absolutely possible to use prayer for negative and destructive means.

Through fascinating true stories, case histories, and solid scientific evidence, Dossey illustrates the different kinds of negative prayer -- including tainted prayer and malevolent prayer -- and explores why they exist and how many of us wield them, often unconsciously, against ourselves and others. He also discusses the ethics of prayer and offers practical suggestions for protecting ourselves from harmful prayer in a straightforward, highly readable style that artfully blends science and psychology.

For the thousands who have already begun to explore the spiritual dimension of health and healing, and those who want all the information available on the scientifically documented phenomenon of prayer, Toxic Prayer is a necessary addition to the list of required reading.
