Persistent Pilgrim is the most in-depth, serious biography of Mary Baker Eddy, the founder of Christian Science, written by a Christian Scientist in over 60 years. In this easily accessible book, Richard Nenneman, who retired as Editor-in-Chief ofMorePersistent Pilgrim is the most in-depth, serious biography of Mary Baker Eddy, the founder of Christian Science, written by a Christian Scientist in over 60 years. In this easily accessible book, Richard Nenneman, who retired as Editor-in-Chief of The Christian Science Monitor, traces the outlines of her life and the religion she described as a discovery in terms understandable to any general reader.A fascinating aspect of this biography is that Nenneman researched and read every available piece of correspondence written by Mary Baker Eddy that is in the Mary Baker Eddy Library- yet he does not use extracts or quoted materials heavily.

The book examines the woman behind the public image, including her upbringing, family and personal tragedies, religious development, lawsuits, etc. These excerpts from Mrs. Eddys letters vividly portray her challenges and her dealings with her students and later with her young church. The author does not believe that a religious biography can be written without a point of view, but he does not draw back from presenting Mrs. Eddy as a woman who could be volatile. In fact, while the book necessarily traces the development of Christian Science, it is even more a story of Mrs.

Eddys personal development, growth, and ability to lead others through her spiritual maturity. Her story culminates in the almost continual challenges she faced and overcame during the last decade of her life.
