  • "Though Mark Twain is best remembered as perhaps the quintessential American humor writer, he was also a keen observer and critic of cultural and social trends. In this vein, he undertook a book-length discussion and analysis of Christian Science and New Thought, both of which enjoyed immense popularity in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries in the United States. The controversial text was originally rejected by Twain's publisher, a gesture that the author saw as confirming the influence and power of the religious movement."

  • "Christian Science is Mark Twain's razor-sharp attack on a popular movement which was sweeping the country at the turn of the 20th century. One of the tenets of Christian Science is the healing of physical illness through prayer. Having recently lost a daughter to meningitis, Twain responded angrily to the notion that pain and sickness were easily surmounted. His deep-seated iconoclasm also caused him to take aim at Mary Baker Eddy, the founder of Christian Science, who he saw as self-promoting and fraudulent. Using all of the satire and wit for which he is famous, Twain pokes fun a."@en
  • "Mark Twain's witty, caustic attack on Christian Science and its founder Mary Baker Eddy came about as a result of his fear in 1898, that Christian Science would spread so rapidly, it would control Congress by the 1930s. Here, Twain analyzes Mrs. Eddy's greed, lust for power, self-dedication, and incoherent writing. -Amazon.com."@en
  • "Mark Twain's fear that Christian Science would control the American government within thirty years persuaded him to write this clever yet cutting piece on Christian Science and its founder Mary Baker Eddy. Twain focuses on the negative aspects of Eddy: her hunger for money and power, her self-dedication, and incoherent writing."
