Christ and Christmas
This clothbound gift edition of Mary Baker Eddy’s only illustrated poem showcases the beauty and vivid detail of the original artwork she commissioned.
Mary Baker Eddy was the founder of the Christian Science church and author of the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures.
A prolific writer, she regarded this illustrated poem as among her most important works. About it, she wrote, "'Christ and Christmas' voices Christian Science through song and object-lesson."
Mary Baker Eddy originally published this book of her poems as a gift edition for her friends. Upon reading it, those friends encouraged her to make it available publicly. Poems contains 48 original poems written throughout her life, beginning from childhood. Seven have since been set to music, and appear in the Christian Science Hymnal.
