The Mystical Body : An Investigation of Supernatural Phenomena Paperback
We've all seen astonishing claims about supernatural qualities associated with the bodies of saints and mystics, from bilocation and 'the perfumes of sanctity' to supernatural energy.
Should rational people dismiss it al as myth, or is there something valid in these ideas?
Scholar and best-selling author Patricia Treece set out to separate the true from the false, and in The Mystical Body she gives us the results of her decades of research.
After respectfully but skeptically examining the evidence, she suggests that, despite exaggeration and fakery, many 'mystical' phenomena stand up to critical inquiry and deserve our serious attention.
The author's wit and keen insights will help you discover a world of unusual and remarkable occurences that will forever alter your view of reality.
