Mary Baker Eddy (Mary Morse Baker) was the founder of Christian Science (1879), a Protestant American system of religious thought and practice religion adopted by the Church of Christ, Scientist, and others.  She is the author of the movement’s text book, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, and founded the Christian Science Publishing Society (1898), which continues to publish a number of periodicals including The Christian Science Monitor (1908).  Married three times, she took the name Mary Baker Glover from her first marriage.  She was also known from her third marriage as Mary Baker Glover Eddy or Mary Baker G. Eddy.  Today, almost 1,700 Christian Science churches are active in 76 countries throughout the world.  People from all walks of life continue to practice this religion and use the system of health that Eddy codified almost 150 years ago.  Eddy’s book Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures has been a best seller for decades, and was selected as one of the “75 Books By Women Whose Words Have Changed The World,” by the Women’s National Book Association.  In 1995, Eddy was inducted in the National Women’s Hall of Fame.  In 2002, The Mary Baker Eddy Library opened its doors, giving the public access to one of the largest collections about an American woman.

The Bible and "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," by Mary Baker Eddy, are the most important books in Christian Science. Eddy questioned conventional views about science, theology and medicine and spent years searching the Bible for answers. "Science and Health" is Mrs. Eddy's primary work and the definitive textbook on Christian Science.
