The stories of pioneer Christian Scientists remain largely untold, although their lives have relevance and freshness for today. This volume profiles four pioneering workers of the first order. Each one came to this new religion in the 1880s in urgent need of healing.
For Annie M. Knott, it was the discovery that her son had swallowed a bottle of carbolic acid and doctors had rendered their verdict: 24 hours to live. For Emma Thompson, it was a fight from childhood against extreme pain from neuralgia. For her daughter Abigail, it was restoration to health from chronic inherited lung trouble. For Janette Weller, it was a 20-year struggle with tuberculosis. The healings that resulted proved to be new beginnings, as each of these people dedicated her life to helping and healing others. These well-documented accounts form a unique record of what extraordinary courage, fierce dedication, and love for God and Christian Science can accomplish.
