Meet the Author

Mary Baker Eddy (1821-1910) was an influential American author, teacher, and religious leader. She is noted for her groundbreaking ideas about spirituality and healing, which she based on the Bible, particularly Christ Jesus' words and works. This system of healing, which she denominated Christian Science, puts into action all that she learned from her Bible study. Her ideas are fully articulated in her major work, the best-seller Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, first published in 1875. In 1879, she founded the Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, Massachusetts, which today has branch churches and societies around the world. She established her church "to commemorate the word and works of our Master, which should reinstate primitive Christianity and its lost element of healing." In 1908 she launched The Christian Science Monitor, a leading international newspaper, the recipient, to date, of seven Pulitzer Prizes. At her passing, hundreds of tributes appeared in newspapers around the world, including The Boston Globe, which wrote, "She did a wonderful--an extraordinary work in the world and there is no doubt that she was a powerful influence for good."

    The straight scoop about the growth of Christian Science

    This book is invaluable for anyone who wants an accurate, contemporaneous view of the phenomenal growth of Christian Science in the early 20th century.

    Read what the press reported about this remarkable American religious movement. Hear from Mary Baker Eddy herself as she patiently defends her discovery.

    Regardless of your religious views, you will come to respect the integrity and dignity of this woman and her lifework -- the labor from which sprang a church "designed to commemorate the word and works of our Master, which should reinstate primitive Christianity and its lost element of healing."

    Old heresy easily refuted

    You will not be sucked in by this heresy if you know the Bible well.
