Om forfatteren

Mary Baker Eddy was the discoverer of Christian Science and the founder of one of the most influential of American new religious movements, the Church of Christ, Scientist. Experiencing prolonged ill health after the birth of her first child, Eddy visited a "mind-cure" teacher, Phineas P. Quimby of vis mere Portland, Maine, in 1862; she obtained some relief and began to study Quimby's teachings extensively. Although ultimately her doctrine differed from Quimby's on key points, particularly the understanding of Scripture, this association was an important milestone in her development. In 1866, while reading the Bible, she perceived that evil and sickness are nonexistent in God's eyes and subsequently experienced complete healing from an injury resulting from a fall. Soon she was healing others as well in accordance with her newly discovered principle. The first edition of Eddy's major book, Science and Health, was published in 1875, and she founded the Church three years later. It was reorganized in 1892, and in the 1890s Eddy worked on the Church Manual that governs the denomination's life. Although Eddy and Christian Science were influential on the broader New Thought and "positive thinking" movements, her belief in the unreality of evil and the tight organization of her church remain unique.

This is a great book to study if you are interested in becoming enlightened in a way that will enable you to achieve harmony and health in your life. This book is the cornerstone of Christian Science. It speaks of a God that is love only. Most "Christian" Gods are concepts built on the duality of fear and love. With Christian Science, God is only Love. I have been studying this book for 20 odd years and I have noticed in my own life that my circumstances are more and more harmonious and loving. Rarely do I get sick and at 60 years old, I do not take any medicines, which is exactly what Christian Science is all about, health, happiness, and holiness.… (mere)

Nonsense, and badly written nonsense at that, but the book is influential. It's more readable in little bits, and some quotes are sensible, though some of the anecdotes are laughably dubious, such as the supposedly true story of the father who held his baby underwater until it grew comfortable enough to play there. Mothers should remember this story, Eddy admonishes her readers, so that they can prepare their babies properly. Yikes!
