"Today, a spiritual revival is gaining momentum and sacred healing is reaching its greatest acceptance since the Reformation," writes C. Norman Shealy, M.D., Ph.D., in Sacred Healing. As managed care makes modern medicine more and more impersonal, we are driven to recapture a sense of spiritual connection with our healing, says Shealy, a neurosurgeon, founder of the American Holistic Medicine Association, and author of many alternative-medicine books. Here Shealy explores miraculous healing, which goes beyond and cannot be explained by conventional medicine. He presents a brief history of healing, healers, and beliefs about spiritual healing. Then he explains why "sacred healing should be the treatment of choice when orthodox medicine has nothing to offer," and an ancillary treatment in conjunction with surgery and drugs at other times. He describes some modern spiritual healers, such as Harry Edwards, Olga Worrall, and Ostad Hadi Parvarandeh, and the feats of several psychic surgeons who achieve healing miracles. This is not a self-help book--you won't get practical tips or guidelines for using these concepts in your own life--but it does provide a context of sacred healing, the role of spirituality and faith in healing, and related topics such as electromagnetism. This book is not an easy read: the organization and writing style are not as reader-friendly as they might be. --Joan Price
