A Century of Christian Science Healing
Christian Science Publishing Society, The. A Century of Christian Science Healing. Boston: Christian Science Publishing Society, 1966.
This book, published by the Christian Science Church, documents “the tide of spiritual healing” over 100 years after the discovery of Christian Science (1866-1966). The book begins with the story of Mary Baker Eddy’s life and the healing that led to her discovery of Christian Science and her Church (The Beginnings 1866-1883). The second section (The Tide of Healing) consists of individuals’ testimonies of healing—these are divided into three chronological time periods (1883-1914; 1914-1945; 1945-1965). According to the brief introduction, the healings chosen for this section “are not necessarily the most striking; in fact, a conscious effort has been made to strike a balance between healings that would ordinarily be accounted ‘miraculous’ and those closer to the level of common experience.” The last section (Horizon of Healing) sorts healing testimonies topically—such as Healing and Salvation, Healing in the Churches, Healing of the Nations, Practical Aspects, Christianity and Science, etc. The Christian Science Publishing Society has published a sequel to this book: Healing Spiritually: Renewing your life through the power of God’s law (1996).
