Mary Baker Eddy—working woman

A writer, editor, and publisher into her 90th year

One Woman's life—the facets are as varied, as fascinating, and as compelling as the infinite angles of light reflected in a brilliant gem. In the case of Mary Baker Eddy, the founder of this magazine, the trajectory of her life and career defies conventional expectations, and broadens into a narrative that continues to influence the world.

Rather than receding over time into obscurity, Mary Baker Eddy's life has continued to garner attention and gain relevance over the nine decades since her passing in 1910. Her progressive thinking regarding the limitless possibilities of the human experience resonates through her writing and speaks to each generation with renewed vigor and significance. Her vision continues to reach new audiences in many ways. One of these is through the legacy of The Christian Science Publishing Society, which has grown since the end of the 19th century to include the publication of three magazines in print as well as shortwave, broadcast, and Internet versions. One of the magazines, The Herald of Christian Science, is published in 12 languages. The Publishing Society also produces a weekly Bible Lesson published in 17 languages.
