Items of Interest
The life and works of Mrs. Eddy are more and more becoming a subject of interest to those who are not Christian Scientists, as is evidenced by the somewhat frequent publication of books and articles about Mrs. Eddy written by non-Christian Scientists. Christian Scientists appreciate evidence of good will when expressed in such publications. Recent announcements of forthcoming books include some which wrongly purport to present authoritatively Mrs. Eddy's life and to elucidate her teachings. Some such books, obviously unfair and inaccurate, being written from a standpoint adverse or inimical to our Leader and her discovery, cannot be read by loyal Christian Scientists without causing a sense of disquietude, not to say indignation.
Referring to her own writings setting forth her discovery, Mrs. Eddy wrote, "My books state Christian Science correctly;" and, regarding those of others on the same subject, she continues: "but we cannot afford to recommend any literature as wholly Christian Science which is not absolutely genuine" (The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany, p. 224). One of Mrs. Eddy's books (Retrospection and Introspection) includes an autobiography; and personal history is related incidentally in many of her writings.
Mrs. Eddy's biography by Sibyl Wilbur, acquired by The Christian Science Publishing Society after it had been published in a magazine, is the only one having approval from The Mother Church.
