Mary Baker Eddy (July 16, 1821 - December 3, 1910) was the founder of Christian Science (1879), a Protestant American system of religious thought and practice adopted by the Church of Christ, Scientist, and others. She is the author of the movement's textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, and founded the Christian Science Publishing Society (1898), which continues to publish a number of periodicals including The Christian Science Monitor (1908).
Unity of Goodby Mary Eddy
Perhaps no doctrine of Christian Science rouses so much natural doubt and questioning as this, that God knows no such thing as sin. Indeed, this may be set down as one of the "things hard to be understood," such as the apostle Peter declared were taught by his fellow-apostle Paul, "which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest ... unto their own destruction." (2 Peter iii. 16.)
Let us then reason together on this important subject, whose statement in Christian Science may justly be characterized as wonderful.
_Does God know or behold sin, sickness, and death?_

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.
