"I know that my mission is for all the earth, not alone for my dear devoted followers in Christian Science.... All my work, all my efforts, all my prayers and tears are for humanity, and the spread of peace and love among mankind." 

- Mary Baker Eddy



Mary Baker Eddy (1821-1910) is the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, and author of Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, the essential book on spiritual healing, which has sold more than 10 million copies since it was first published in 1875.

A remarkable woman clearly ahead of her time, she challenged mainstream beliefs about the nature of man's existence and the power of prayer to heal. Recently honored in the National Women's Hall of Fame, her accomplishments include establishing a worldwide church and The Christian Science Monitor, a highly respected international newspaper. She is also the founder and original publisher of the weekly and monthly periodicals Christian Science Sentinel and The Christian Science Journal.
