This biography explores the life and work of Mary Baker Eddy, the founder of Christian Science. Lyman P. Powell was the first biographer to make extensive use of The Mother Church’s archival collections in his research. As an Episcopal clergyman, college president, and prolific author, Powell offers a well-rounded perspective on Eddy’s life and teachings. According to Powell’s biographer, he believed “Mary Baker Eddy should be made known to the world—through the medium of one who was neither her disciple nor her enemy” (Charles S. Macfarland, Lyman Pierson Powell: Pathfinder in Education and Religion, p. 220).
Originally published by Macmillan in 1930, the book has since been published by The Christian Science Publishing Society. This in-depth portrait of Mary Baker Eddy provides readers with an understanding of her life, work, and the far-reaching influence of Christian Science.
