Speaking justly of Mary Baker Eddy

Mary Baker Eddy, who founded this magazine, is known and honestly appreciated for sharing her discovery of Christian Science with humanity and establishing a church “designed to commemorate the word and works of our Master, which should reinstate primitive Christianity and its lost element of healing” (Manual of The Mother Church, p. 17).

And yet, as did Christ Jesus, Mrs. Eddy and her teaching sometimes met with resistance and misunderstanding in her lifetime—and society is still in the process of sorting out the significance of her life and lifework.

A hint of the great challenges she was required to meet comes through in her statement, “Millions may know that I am the Founder of Christian Science. I alone know what that means” (The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany, p. 249).
