Review
Gr 7 Up?Williams explores the subject of spiritual healing and founder Mary Baker Eddy's nontraditional views: that matter is the opposite of spirit; that sin and disease should be conquered solely by prayer; that Jesus was the perfect example of right living and served as a mediator between God and humanity but was not divine. Many of the concepts require seriously reasoned thought and abackground in religion. Since the Christian Science faith and Eddy, its "discoverer," are inextricable, the book serves as her biography as well as areligious history and statement of Christian Science tenets. Examples of verified healings are included. Large black-and-white photographs and art reproductionsappear throughout The author's research is thorough, and her prose style is straightforward and skilled. An engaging look at a remarkable and determined woman whose radical beliefs eventually spread throughout the world.?Patricia Pearl Dole, formerly at First Presbyterian School, Martinsville, VA
