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.”
Unity of Good (Authorized Edition)by Mary Baker Eddy

Unity of Good shows how an understanding of God as completely good brings healing to your life. With logic and deep compassion, Mary Baker Eddy speaks to our intuitive sense that God is supreme good, the only power, and that because He is All, evil is not the obstinate reality it seems to be. She speaks of the mission of Christ Jesus to save humanity from the belief in a power opposed to God. This book presents not abstract theory but practical Christianity with its demands as well as blessings.

This was a great little book. It challenges our concept of reality and religion in very interesting ways. I have read much of Mary Baker Eddy. Her books and articles are part of my daily spiritual practice. One thing I really love is that, though it is in early 20th century style, Eddy is logical in every way. Even if you don't agree with her premise, you can agree that she stays true to the logic of what she believes true. She also demands provability from her theories - another plus from my perspective. I have never related to the mystery of God concept of religion. I like to be able to pick something apart, understand it, and then prove it. Eddy's best book, by far, is Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures. Get the Authorized Edition cuz the other ebook versions are no where near as good.
