Mary Baker Eddy

Mary Baker Eddy (1821-1910) continues to be one of the most influential authors on the powerful relationship between mind, body, and spirit. She was a remarkable lecturer, Christian reformer, spiritual healer, and teacher. Her ideas continue to challenge mainstream beliefs about the nature of existence and the power of prayer to heal.

Her pathway was not an easy one. As a woman of the 1800’s she suffered the prejudices and restrictions of a society governed by men and a patriarchal religious system designed to hold the thinking woman in constant check.

In her early adult years she struggled with poor health, financial insecurity and family hardship. In her later years, as the leader of a world-wide religious movement and a successful businesswoman, she faced the muckraking and unscrupulous newspaper reporting called yellow journalism. The result of these public attacks resulted in her founding in 1908 at the age of 87, the award-winning news organization, The Christian Science Monitor.

Throughout all of the ups and downs of her eventful life she cherished a deep love of the Scriptures. The inspired insights she gained from studying the Bible transformed her own life, and formed the basis for the pioneering ideas in her book, .
