About the Author
Cheryl Petersen has felt the emerging new consciousness that ushers healing and purpose into life. After being healed of 2nd degree burns on half of her face, Cheryl correlated her experience to Christian (divine) Science as taught by Mary Baker Eddy in her book Science and Health first written in the 19th century. Cheryl therefore has revised Science and Health, which serves to release words from sense and flux, to yield a perception of divine Science in the 21st century. This is the 4th edition. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

God directed and inspired writings like the Bible and Science and Health require God's help to be understood correctly. This is because the divine purpose of such works is to unite man with God and to reveal us all to be the spiritual man of God's creating. To rewrite Science and Health to be more satisfying to the human intellect undermines this purpose.
Mrs. Eddy's credentials for writing Science and Health are over 300 documented healings, numerous other writings, lectures, and instruction of students regarding the divine science she discovered. Cheryl Petersen offers no significant credentials that would qualify her to rewrite Science and Health. I'm sure her efforts were sincere and intended to meet a need. For me, she misses the mark on accomplishing this.
Just a few examples:
Intellect and wisdom are not the same thing.
Integrity and virtue are not the same thing.
Master and teacher are not the same thing.
Ms. Peterson has added words where there was nothing to indicate such should be added or substituted.
"Kind, honest and faithful", does not mean precisely the same as Mrs. Eddy's "loving, pure, tender and strong." Nor does it carry the same strength and impact. Why a 25¢ word "conjoin" when "join" works?
But, like reading another translation of the Bible (though nothing could outdo the King James to be sure!), the book has given me insights into Christian Science that, perhaps, only a slight shift to modern language could give. I am enjoying every page! And I thank you Ms. Petersen for doing such a bold and seemingly unthinkable thing!
