The People’s Idea of God — Its Effect on Health and Christianity (Authorized Edition)
This sermon by Mary Baker Eddy brings healing to the forefront of Christianity by illustrating the effects of broadening one’s concept of God. The People’s Idea of God—Its Effect on Health and Christianity looks at how individuals' lives are influenced by their views of God, and the life-transforming effect of spiritual ideals. The base text of this sermon is from Ephesians 4:5, "One Lord, one faith, one baptism."
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Mary Baker Eddy (18211910) 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."
