The doctor - and bestselling author - who first demonstrated the healing effects of prayer now offers an unprecedented look at the science of premonitions. The Power of Premonitions takes readers through documented cases of premonitions, including a remarkable instance when an entire Nebraska community skipped church the very day it exploded; an examination of recent scientific study of 'presentiment'; a discussion of what it all means to daily life; and practical field-tested techniques for inviting premonitions. In this compelling new book Dossey uses cutting-edge science to prove the value of what has long been considered spiritual mumbo-jumbo. This is a book for the sceptical mind, but it's also for the believer's heart - because its author possesses the rare gift of having both.

Spirituality & Practice

Dossey hits high stride near the end of the book with his assessments of the kinds of people who are premonition prone and reasons why we should pay attention to premonitions — for example, if they are intrusive and insistent, as if clamoring for attention, and when they seem intensely real.
