-Publisher

James Randi, a professional magician and a founding fellow of the Committee for the Scientific Investigation of Claims of the Paranormal, was awarded a grant from the MacArthur Foundation in 1986 for his investigation of "psychic" Uri Geller and his inquiry into the validity of faith-healing claims. The International Platform Association has twice awarded him the Blackstone Cup as outstanding speaker in his category. His books include Flim-Flam!, The Truth about Uri Geller, and Houdini - His Life and Art. He has written for numerous scientific journals and for the Encyclopedia Americana and Encyclopaedia Britannica. James Randi makes his home in Plantation, Florida.

:James Randi, the celebrated magician, has written a damning indictment of the faith-healing practices of the leading televangelists and others who claim divine healing powers. Randi and his team of researchers attended scores of "miracle services" and often were pronounced "healed" of the nonexistent illnesses they claimed. They viewed first-hand the tragedies resulting from the wide-spread belief that faith healing can cure every conceivable disease. The ministries, they discovered, were rife with deception, chicanery, and often outright fraud.

Self-annointed ministers of God convince the gullible that they have been healed - and that they should pay for the service. The Faith Healers examines in depth the reasons for belief in faith healing and the catastrophic results for the victims of these hoaxes. Included in Randi's book are profiles of a highly profitable "psychic dentist", and the "Vatican-approved wizard."
