Here is one of the lesser known books by Mark Twain, a witty and acerbic literary attack on Christian science and its founder, Mary Baker Eddy.”Mother Eddy deserves a place in the Trinity as much as any member of it. She has organized and made available a healing principle that for two thousand years has never been employed except as the merest kind of guesswork. She is the benefactor of the age” : a typical example of he sarcasm that Mark Twain uses in denouncing the founder of the faith based on Christian Biblical healing which he was worried, might control the Congress in a few decades. First published in 1903, it was rejected by Harpers, at that time one of them biggest publishers in America. Easily one of the classical books of our time, that attacks religious hypocrisy to its core.
