I just posted a one-star review of Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, by Mary Baker Eddy, on amazon.com. It will take a day or so to be posted. I am thinking of posting reviews of God's Perfect Child, by Caroline Fraser, and A Century of Christian Science Healing, by the Christian Science Publishing Society.
God's Perfect Child (p. 428) discusses a Christian Science practitioner who wrote that she had raised four children with total reliance on God for healing. "I cannot remember an activity missed because of illness." In fact, the practitioner had five children, one of whom died at seven from an illness, probably malignant lymphoma.
One might reasonably view that as a blatant lie by the practitioner, but there are alternate possibilities. One is that the book's account is false. Another is that her daughter's death over 20 years earlier might have slipped her mind. This sounds so callous, but unfortunately such things happen to people with certain types of brains. But here's the possibility that Christian Science leads me to consider:
As a long-time Christian Science practitioner, she thoroughly understood the requirement to Know the Truth and to deny the false testimony of the material senses. So regardless of what the material senses and mortal mind told, she Knew the Truth. God's perfect child would never miss an appropriate activity due to illness; God's perfect child would never be ill. Therefore, she Knew the Truth and reported the Truth as she Knew it. Mortal mind and personal sense may have tempted her with the belief and memory that a child was sick and missing an activity, and that a child had gotten sick and died, but she firmly rejected the temptation and False Belief.
