We Knew Mary Baker Eddy - Fourth Series Author:The Christian Science Publishing Society The first three volumes in the series "We Knew Mary Baker Eddy" focused on Mrs. Eddy herself. Anything we may learn about the writers of these memoirs or about other students of Christian Science who may be mentioned in them is indirect and peripheral. In this fourth volume the focus of the first two memoirs, and to some extent that of... more » the third, is different. To a considerable degree it is on the writer. Nevertheless, in each of the memoirs Mrs. Eddy is a pervading influence of which the reader is constantly and powerfully aware.
This awareness of Mrs. Eddy as a presence and influence for good in the lives of those whose lives she touched and blessed gives readers a fresh view of Mrs. Eddy. It enables them to perceive her in a different dimension from any that they may have found by looking more directly at her. In its own way, then, this volume makes its unique contribution to a full understanding of Mrs. Eddy.
Memoirs included are:
• A Friendship Through Two Generations, by Mary Godfrey Parker
• A Worker in the Massachusetts Metaphysical College, by Julia S. Bartlett
• A Worker in Mrs. Eddy's Chestnut Hill Home, by Martha W. Wilcox
Each volume in the series "We Knew Mary Baker Eddy" best serves its purpose as it turns its readers back with renewed eagerness and interest to learn from Mrs. Eddy's own writings what she knew and records of herself and of her revelation of the Christ, Truth.« less
