Book Description

In 1925, Mary Baker Eddy's prose writings other than Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures and the Manual of The Mother Church were brought together in a single volume entitled Prose Works. These writings—a collection of addresses, letters, sermons, and articles—give valuable insights into her role as Founder and Leader of the Christian Science Church and strengthen the reader's spiritual perspective of life as a practicing Christian.

Mary Baker Eddy (1821–1910) was an influential American author, teacher, and religious leader. She is noted for her groundbreaking ideas about spirituality and healing, which she based on the Bible, particularly Christ Jesus' words and works. This system of healing, which she denominated Christian Science, puts into action all that she learned from her Bible study. Her ideas are fully articulated in her major work, the best-seller Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, first published in 1875. In 1879, she founded the Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, Massachusetts, which today has branch churches and societies around the world. She established her church "to commemorate the word and works of our Master, which should reinstate primitive Christianity and its lost element of healing." In 1908 she launched The Christian Science Monitor, a leading international newspaper, the recipient, to date, of seven Pulitzer Prizes. At her passing, hundreds of tributes appeared in newspapers around the world, including The Boston Globe, which wrote, "She did a wonderful—an extraordinary work in the world and there is no doubt that she was a powerful influence for good."

5.0 out of 5 stars It started in Boston May 5, 2007
Wayne Dyer became a kajillionaire by writing countless books (which made it into the mainstream) that assert this simple truth: We have dominion over our thoughts and by exercising dominion in the mental relm, we can also prove and manifest that dominion in our physical experience.

Mary Baker Eddy made very similar statements in the 1870s, at a time when women were expected to sit quietly and demurely and speak only when spoken to. Whether you're a friend or foe of the CS church, you gotta *love* Eddy's boldness to create and establish an international religion, a church and a well-respected, international newspaper at a time when women didn't even the right to vote or hold property.

Prose Works is a collection of Eddy's writings and I've always found it to be a good read and it packs a powerful wallop of inspiration. Not just, "wow, that's a nice thought" inspiration, but the kind of inspiration that initiates a major paradigm shift in both thought and deed.

It is in this book that she wrote one of my favorite passages of all time: "A little more grace, a motive made pure, a few truths tenderly told, a heart softened, a character subdued, a life consecrated, would restore the right action of the mental mechanism, and make manifest the movement of body and soul in accord with God."

Powerful words. I recommend this book, but must add a caution that some of the language is Victorian and a little dated. However, it's still good stuff.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent E-version October 21, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am not here to review the contents of this book, but I will speak to the beauty of the Amazon Kindle version. I think the Church has done a wonderful job formatting and presenting this book in a very readable and enjoyable Kindle version. I already have a hardback copy, but this version encourages me to dig a little deeper into this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars INSPIRING PROSE!! August 24, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is truly inspiring prose full of spiritual gems that corroborate with and expound on biblical truths as well as giving an accurate and fascinating insight into the author's life and development of the religion of Christian Science which she founded. I feel the following passage fairly represents the main tenor of the work: "The primitive privilege of Christianity was to make men better, to cast out error, and to heal the sick. It was a proof, more than a profession thereof; a demonstration, more than a doctrine. It was the foundation of right thinking and right acting, and must be reestablished on its former basis. The stone which the builders rejected must again become the head of the corner." (Prose Works, Christian Healer, p. 3)

However, I would suggest first checking out the author's main work, "Science and Health With Key to the Scriptures" for a truly life-changing experience. There have been many books over the recent decades discussing "paradigm-shifts" in individual and global consciousness but this small book has the powerful capacity for doing away with paradigms all together and taking you straight to the source, the divine Mind, God. It cuts right through centuries of dogma and superstition to reveal the "truth that makes you free"!!
