Overview

The Christian Scientists by Jean Kinney Williams

In 1870, Mary Baker Eddy began teaching about the spiritual principles by which she experienced a healing of various lifelong ailments. By her death in 1910, the church had 85,000 members, and today there are churches in fifty countries. Society has criticized the church since its start, particularly because healing requires absolute faith in God and a rejection of modern medical procedures. But Christian Science belief encompasses far more than just healing; it is based on a "Divine Principle", as described in Eddy's central book, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, which discusses a set of spiritual rules that guides Christian Scientists in all aspects of their lives.
