About This Item

1897 Mary Baker Eddy Science and Health Christian Scientists Medicine New Age

Mary Baker Eddy's 'Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures' is the most important religious text for the Christian Science religion. It is undoubtedly one of the most influential theological books written by a woman in the 19th-century. This book discusses the development of Christian Science ideals, especially the use of theology in conjunction with healing and disease cure.

Per Heirs of Hippocrates:

"A disenchantment with orthodox medicine during years of invalidism, together with an intensive study of scripture, led Mary Morse Baker, the daughter of a New England farmer, to the conclusion that disease is mental rather than physical, and that matter (and hence evil), as commonly perceived, does not exist. The phenomenal spread of her teaching resulted in the Church of Christ Scientist, with membership of nearly 100,000 members at the time of her death…the basic book of the faith"

From PMM:

"In spite of the mechanical faults of her book and the controversial nature of many of her teachings, Mary Baker Eddy was far ahead of her time in the emphasis she placed upon positive thinking, a force which modern psychology was belated in recognizing."
