In addition to her primary work, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, and some autobiographical reflections, Mary Baker Eddy wrote and published many other works during her lifetime, including the following:
Miscellaneous Writings 1883-1896
Mary Baker Eddy believed that this collection of writings was so important, that in 1897 she requested that students of her ideas spend the next year thoroughly reading it. The diverse articles, addresses, letters, and poems—on topics such as mental healing, forgiveness, angels, and marriage—are based on the author’s own experiences in putting her system of healing into practice. Considered by Eddy to be a book that would help readers better understand Science and Health, it contains dozens of letters from people healed just by reading that work.
“Hope,” “Woman’s Rights,” and “Resolutions for the Day” are just some of the titles in this inspiring book of verse. It contains 48 of Mary Baker Eddy’s original poems written from childhood through adult life. Poems includes a number of verses that were printed in various publications of her time, as well as seven that have been set to music as hymns (“Satisfied,” “Mother’s Evening Prayer,” “Feed My Sheep,” “Love,” “Christ My Refuge,” “Christmas Morn,” and “Communion Hymn”).
Unity of Good
In this publication, Mary Baker Eddy writes about how a better understanding of God as completely good can bring healing to one’s life. Fifteen short, individual chapters address subjects such as “The Ego,” “Soul,” and “The Deep Things of God.”
Christ and Christmas
This unique fifteen-verse poem is accompanied by eleven charcoal and wash color drawings by artist James Gilman.
Pulpit and Press
As the Original Edifice of The Mother Church in Boston rose week by week in 1894, the world watched. The completion of this new church caught the attention of journalists, public officials, and ordinary citizens throughout America and beyond. Pulpit and Press documents the completion and dedication of the Church, as well as the broad and diverse media coverage of the event. It contains excerpts from the dedication service (including Eddy’s dedicatory sermon), over 60 pages of reprints from newspaper articles, and more.
