Edgar Cayce’s Bible Study Paralleling A Search For God I Study Group Lessons (626 KB PDF)

These lessons were compiled from the Study Group which met at 8 p.m. on Mondays from January 4, 1939 until January 2, 1940 at the home of Mr. And Mrs. Edgar Cayce on Arctic Circle in Virginia Beach. As the teacher, Mr. Cayce explained the purpose of the forming of this group: "We are gathered for the purpose of comparing the Study Group Lessons with the Scripture from the King James Bible, to make the truths practical for ourselves and those who seek to apply them."
