/ -- Call them heresies, false faiths, destructive religions, or thought reform—any church that strays from the fundamental and widely-accepted Christian doctrines is deemed a cult. Founded in the 1870s by Mary Baker Eddy, who claimed to have "rediscovered the lost element of Christian healing," Christian Science continues to lead people astray from biblical truth and often causes intense suffering because followers reject all forms of modern medical treatment. In her book, Leaving Christian Science: 10 Stories of New Faith in Jesus Christ, author Lauren Hunter shares the complicated journey of leaving the religion and comprehending biblical Christianity.
"With each in-depth interview, I felt overwhelmed by the arduous process it can often take to step away from Christian Science teachings," says Hunter in the book's introduction.
"One would think that leaving Christian Science would be easy after discovering that its doctrine is flawed. But Christian Science is more than a set of doctrinal beliefs; it is a denial of reality which can result in terrible physical, emotional, and spiritual damage."
In these ten intensely personal narratives, former Christian Scientists bravely recount their journey out of the religion and into authentic, biblical faith in Jesus Christ. Each chapter addresses a different theme, shining light on theological inconsistencies taught by Mary Baker Eddy in her book Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures. These themes include matter, the body, God, Sin, Mary Baker Eddy, Jesus, prayer, the Holy Spirit, contagion, and the Bible.
Hunter adds, "Each story of leaving Christian Science was hard won; no easy recoveries or lightning-bolt moments here, just one small step after another made in the hopes that truth could be found."
With reflection questions, pastoral teaching, related Bible verses, and a guiding letter from the author, each story navigates common obstacles and paves the way for a deeper understanding of the Christian faith.
