The Mary Baker Eddy Library for the Betterment of Humanity™

In her true light...

A look at an unpublished reminiscence about Mary Baker Eddy

In September 2002, The Mary Baker Eddy Library for the Betterment of Humanity will open its doors to people from all over the world. The Library's collections will offer a wide range of materials for people from all walks of life who want to know more about this distinguished woman and her ideas, and the context in which she lived and worked.

As announced in January, for the rest of this year, the Sentinel will bring readers excerpts from this previously unpublished collection. And although what we'll be publishing in this series offers only small glimpses into Mrs. Eddy's life and the whole of her writings, we hope readers will be inspired to learn more and to visit the Library after its opening. You will be able to find out more about the Library and its purpose and scope in the March 2002 of The Christian Science Journal.

The collection contains many historical narratives about Mary Baker Eddy's life and ideas. Reminiscences reflect one person's perspective and usually are recorded many years after a particular incident, so names, dates, and places may be incorrectly remembered. However, these narratives add depth to the history collected from a person's written or published material.

Enjoy 1 free Sentinel article or audio program each month, including content from 1898 to today.
