This book constitutes Beasley’s response to requests from readers of his first book, The Cross and the Crown, for the history of the Christian Science movement from 1910 to the book’s 1956 publication. Not a Christian Scientist himself, he made good use of public documents covering the controversial ‘Great Litigation,’ court cases on health-laws, as well as successful church programs.View Annotation
