Give God a Chanceis an effort to present the information in the Edgar Cayce readings in ways that are meaningful and useful to Christians of all persuasions, and even to those of other faiths. Give God a Chance consists of the following five sections:
PART I: The Edgar Cayce Readings
This part focuses on Edgar Cayce and the ways in which Cayce presented health and spiritual advice in what has been called readings. It also deals with the authors personal experiences with the readings. Various questions are asked in an attempt to compare the purposes of the readings with those of traditional Bible based, Christ-centered, faith in God.
PART II: God, Mankind, and Spiritual Laws
The readings begin with the assumption that all souls were created for the purpose of becoming companions with God. A creation cosmology is explored, which includes the possibility of the continuity of life extending into other times and places. Gods justice and mercy are understood in terms of the law of cause and effect, the law of grace, and the law of love.
PART III: Christianity and the Cayce Readings
The Cayce information sheds new light on our ancient Scriptures. It gives us a unique perspective of Jesus the Christ and His mission. The history of the Church is explored from the early church onward to the vision of a more democratic, inspired, and unified Body of Christ in the future.
PART IV: Christian Spirituality Applied
The Cayce readings are a treasure of information about prayer, meditation, healing, spiritual psychology, and applied spirituality in all phases of our lives.
PART V: World Transformation
A Christian worldview is developed that emphasizes personal spiritual growth (a new heaven) through having in us the mind that was in Christ Jesus, and global transformation (a new earth) through the application of Christian spirituality in the world.
New Realities of the Twenty-first Century, Part 1
by Prophet Wildman
The psychic/parapsychic experience in the supernatural is one that is not readily understood or accepted by the masses. After enjoying the gift of psychic future predictive awareness for more than fifty years, Prophet Wildman had a deep understanding of the psychic and parapsychic experience. However, it wasn’t until 2008 when he began receiving Holy subject (Tribulation) awareness as a precognitive psychic medium that he really began to delve deeper into this relatively unknown subject and explore psychic and parapsychic experiences as they related to the supernatural and Christianity.
Prophet Wildman wows his readers with first-hand experiences, both from the perspective of being Christian and of being a psychic medium, while also providing a comprehensive dissection and decoding of the Tribulation event as it relates to the prophecy.
Wildman’s deeply personal experiences, along with factual statements and others’ first-hand experiences, provide the reader with a comprehensive read that will strengthen one’s faith in Christ and Christianity, while opening up rarely explored doors to the supernatural, psychic and parapsychic worlds.
Explore the unknown with Prophet Wildman as he weaves his unwavering Christian beliefs with everything from extraterrestrials and ultraterrestrials to vampires, U.F.Os, and government cover-ups. An open mind and a strong religious conviction are all that’s needed to begin searching and discovering some of the biggest mysteries of our time.
Maybe it will happen when you pray, or perhaps when you are on a walk with your dog. You will look up at the stars on a crisp, clear night when the whole world will seem wondrous and beautiful. You will sense my soul or my spirit is with you and that my love for you is in some way eternal. It is.
In the past, the words soul and spirit have seemed to be without meaning in the real world; they were hopeful words of the simple-minded or dogmatic. They are not.
I believe that our consciousness endures after death in another realm, entangled between loved ones and with everything else. Ultimately, our consciousness is entangled with God. This is heavennirvanaan eternal sanctuary beyond our capabilities to describe or understand. But it is not beyond are capabilities to experience.
Our true purpose in life is to discover this experienceto become awareto be with God. I continue to struggle mightily at this, but I know that my unconditional love for you both has me moving in exactly the right direction.

A lot of what is marketed to the public as psychology is actually quite unscientific. Attempting to counteract the tide of misinformation about what psychology really is, this book is a concise guide for anyone seeking to understand the true scientific nature of psychology. Self-help books; television specials; and articles in the popular press all serve to obscure the true intellectual and scientific premises on which the field of psychology is based. The serious work of the great psychological thinkers and schools of psychological thought is lost to the average person. High school and college students as well as the interested lay reader will want to consult this work to understand what is good in the popular presentation of psychology and what is unworthy of serious attention.
