A child dies as its parents declare that nothing is wrong. An adult suffers silently with a treatable disease. Church members emotionally neglect each other in times of illness, convinced that talking about a problem will make it difficult to heal. Welcome to the hidden world of Christian science. Few people realise that Christian scientists are trapped by a way of thinking which twists their perception of reality, teaches them to mistrust their senses, and short-circuits their ability to make informed, reasoned decisions regarding health care. In short, few people realise that Christian Scientists are under 'mind control'.

as a doubting cs in the middle of a crisis of faith, the one thing i don't like in these former cs books is their reliance on the writings by people who, if the authors did the research, had their own questionable motives for smearing the founder of cs. gillian gill, a non-cs, who dug extensively into primary sources for many months and who sugar coats nothing about the religion or its founder, reveals the most unreliable sources--in particular, dittemore, milmine, dakin, and cather. for those of us trying to find our way out, these kinds of books do a disservice. as soon as i saw her sources i knew it lacked the kind of substance i was looking for, though i did find the connection to mind control helpful.
