Maryville Times

A recent issue carried a piece of advice from which I kindly beg leave to dissent. This was the recommendation that those desiring "the unmitigated, uncolored facts" concerning the life and work of Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, should secure a certain book written by one who was distinctly unfriendly, unfair, and uninformed on his subject.

No history can be correct or helpful when it is inspired by prejudice or ignorance. For a fair presentation of the life and works of Mary Baker Eddy permit me to mention the following books, which may be read or obtained at Christian Science Reading Rooms throughout the world: "The Life of Mary Baker Eddy" by Sibyl Wilbur; "Christian Science and Its Discoverer" by E. Mary Ramsay; and "Mary Baker Eddy: A Life Size Portrait" by the Rev. Lyman P. Powell. Incidentally, let me say that Dr. Powell writes from the standpoint of an Episcopal minister.
