From the New York Times bestselling author of Healing Words and Prayer Is Good Medicine comes this compelling exploration of the negative side of prayer. Larry Dossey, M.D., offers remarkable evidence that, just as prayer can be used positively to affect health and healing, it can also be used for negative and destructive purposes. With fascinating true stories, case histories and scientific analysis, Dossey explores the nature of "toxic" prayer and teaches us how we can protect ourselves from its threatening influence.
