The ultimate life story, now searchable online

Dear Reader,

Some years ago, an ad posted all over London promoted a book about a celebrity as “the ultimate biography.” I was reading a biography of Mary Baker Eddy at the time, and was struck with how she leaned on God and defied all the odds to restore what she referred to as “primitive Christianity and its lost element of healing” (Church Manual, p. 17). I kept thinking, “This is the ultimate biography.” 

The many varied biographies that share Mrs. Eddy’s story are a wonderful resource for going deeper in our understanding of her life and ideas. They offer no teachings that aren’t already available in her textbook on Christian Science, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures. Yet gems of insight can be gleaned from learning how its author practiced the Christian Science she discovered, and from “listening in” to some of her one-to-one conversations with others.
