She was a girl that quite literally felt a calling at an early age when she thought she heard a supernatural voice call her name. Shortly thereafter she was intermittently beset with chronic illnesses and remarkable bouts of healing. Mary Baker Eddy did not claim to understand where her spontaneous remissions were coming from until much later in life; it was in old age, when no one expected Mary Baker Eddy to do much of anything except retire, that she entered into her great final act, and in doing so, she rocked the entire religious world to its core. Inside you will read about... ✓ Healed by Prayer ✓ Early Love and Loss ✓ Separated from Her Son ✓ Mary during the American Civil War ✓ The Birth of Christian Science And much more! Whether or not you believe her claims of healing and divine intervention, the story of Mary Baker Eddy, founder of the Church of Christ, Scientist, is a riveting one all the same.

    Ok, a bit boring at times Mary Baker Eddy: A Life From Beginning to End by Hourly History tells of her life and I had NO idea who she was before reading this. I think her family, especially her dad was strange and maybe that's why she believed the way she did.

    Christian Science beginnings Mary Baker, as a young child, several times heard a voice calling her name. Raised in a strict religious environment, she was sure that God was calling her. Through the many tragedies in her life, she was often ill and bedridden. When she recovered, she was convinced that it was due to her faith in God.

Raised in a strict religious environment, she was sure that God was calling her. Through the many tragedies in her life, she was often ill and bedridden. When she recovered, she was convinced that it was due to her faith in God. Later she heard about a healer named Quimby and paid him a visit. Following his treatment (which many attribute to hypnotism), she felt that she was fully cured and told Quimby that his healing gift was God working through him. He stoutly denied this, claiming that he was not even a Christian. Mary nonetheless proceeded to build a new religion on this basis. The book tells how many were trained in this healing method, but no testimonials are provided of the people who were healed. All the same, it is an interesting look at the beginnings of the Christian Science faith. 7

    Having never heard of Mary Baker Eddy before, I was interested to read of her life.  She seems to have been a strong-willed individual who was called to religion at an early age.  She also seems to have been afflicted with various illnesses over her life.  After googling Eddy's name, I found that she believed that sickness was an illusion that could be corrected by prayer alone.  This book did not say this in so many words, but it implied it. I don't understand why this book was so evasive about Having never heard of Mary Baker Eddy before, I was interested to read of her life.  She seems to have been a strong-willed individual who was called to religion at an early age.  She also seems to have been afflicted with various illnesses over her life.  After googling Eddy's name, I found that she believed that sickness was an illusion that could be corrected by prayer alone.  This book did not say this in so many words, but it implied it. I don't understand why this book was so evasive about Eddy's beliefs.  She determined that disease is a mental error rather than a physical disorder.  The sick should be treated, not by medicine, but by 'a form of prayer that seeks to correct the beliefs responsible for the illusion of ill health.' ( Eddy, Science and Health: "Question. — What is God?") If you pay attention to any news, you will be aware that many Christian Scientists have been prosecuted in recent years because they withhold medicine or surgery from family members, and then those members die.  That may be why their numbers are diminishing.  None of this was mentioned in this book.

    A Brief Biography Mary Baker Eddy was born on July 16, 1821 in Bow, New Hampshire. She had five older siblings. As a child she was very devout in her prayers and had had episodes in which she heard the voice of God calling her, similar to the experience of Samuel in the Bible.

She had five older siblings. As a child she was very devout in her prayers and had had episodes in which she heard the voice of God calling her, similar to the experience of Samuel in the Bible. Beginning as a young child she had periods of debilitating illness and pain alternating with remission. She attributed the remission to God’s healing power through prayer especially when she experienced healing at the hands of a Dr. Quimby as an adult. As an adult she founded the Church of Christ, Scientist in 1879 and The Christian Science Monitor in 1908. The Monitor has won several Pulitzer Prizes for articles in it. It would have been interesting if the author of this book had devoted a paragraph or two to what the Church of Christ, Scientist believes, because those beliefs largely state those of Mary Baker Eddy. ♥️✝️🐑✡️♥️

    I remember hearing the name Mary Baker Eddy somewhere, but I didn't know anything at all about her. It was unfortunate that she was so sickly for most of her life and especially that she and her son were kept apart for so much of their lives. However, I guess it was more common in a time when there was little way for a single mother to support herself and a child. It's interesting how she came to have as much influence on her followers as she did, but even today religious leaders and faith healer I remember hearing the name Mary Baker Eddy somewhere, but I didn't know anything at all about her.

The book did okay at reporting on the events of her life and I realize that the establishment of her church and the Christian Science Monitor came toward the end of it, but I still would like to have read more on the history of their endurance over the years, instead of just a very brief mention of it. I felt that it would've been worth some more coverage since they've endured this long after her passing.

    Strange Woman and Stranger Life I appreciate the history but was bewildered by how this pathetic, sickly woman could conjure up such strange ideas and claim that they were biblical. She obviously had a gift for writing to have been able to spread this religion she invented to so many people who bought into it.

    Wow I never knew about the history of Christian Science. Interesting. And the practice of the time for dealing with widowed mothers.

    A good read Interesting. I'd never heard of Mary Baker Eddy before this. A strange person for sure but an interesting one nonetheless. A good read Interesting. I'd never heard of Mary Baker Eddy before this. A strange person for sure but an interesting one nonetheless.

    Good, short book. I especially liked the part that reveals that MBE responded to situations in her life with calmness instead of enthusiasm, to which God responded.

    Not for me. I read waiting for the punchline, which finally came in the conclusion. Too much time was spent on the family deaths. I kept reading for "The Eddy." Not for me.
