Following the example set by the question and answer columns in the early Journals, when Mary Baker Eddy was editor, this column will respond to general queries from Journal readers—such as the one above—with responses from Journal readers. It will not cover questions about how to interpret statements in Mary Baker Eddy's writings. There's more information at the end of the column about how to submit questions.


From the April 2008 issue of The Christian Science Journal

My grandfather and I once had a discussion about the circumstances of a healing by Mary Baker Eddy (the healing of a young boy with a club foot sitting on the beach). My grandfather maintained that Mary Baker Eddy did not heal that child, but that God did.
