Book Description

A description of the daily private life of a great Leader is valuable only to the degree that the eyewitness is both intimate and honest. There have been so many conflicting accounts of the life of Mary Baker Eddy, accounts varying from the cloyingly adoring and suspect to the viciously hostile and demonstrably untrue, that to come across an absolutely straightforward record of the last days of the great 'Revelator ' of Christian Science is a rewarding experience. In Adam Dickey we are fortunate in finding someone whose transparent sincerity and whose love for 'Mother' illuminates every page. Here is the ideal witness; his naiveté of approach, his utter unawareness that he may be providing ammunition for the irreverent, testify to his honesty.
