Christian Science is the largest and most recognized of various spiritual healing groups that encourage members to forgo or overcome the need for medicine. Even so, it appears that some Scientists occasionally use medicine. In this study, I argue that Scientists in one region of Canada respond to influences on their healthcare practices differently and follow a variety of healthcare practices. These practices range from refusing medically necessary treatment (which could potentially har. ONTINUE READING.

I took the time to read through all of the 1 star ratings and it's apparent that the practicing Christian Scientists feel a need to defend their religion. I might have as well, when I was still deeply steeped in this religion. As one who has lost a loved one to lack of medical care from this religions practices, I hope that you will take the time to read this book with an open mind.

Sellers were great. Book in perfect condition. The content of the book, more people should know about. Having been raised in C.S., I can attest to it's accuracy. The word "kills" also means to deaden one's ability to care about the physical world and it's inhabitants. Have a wonderful day. Jolene

From its beginnings in the 19th century, Christian Science has been controversial. Many outside this movement have misunderstood it, condemned it, and misrepresented it. Those inside the movement have staunchly defended it. Now published as "Perfect Peril: Christian Science and Mind Control", "The Religion That Kills" examines the movement literally from the inside out. For 30 years, the author was a devout student of Christian Science. "Perfect Peril" tells the story of the author's journey and what she found along the way.

Originally published under the publisher-selected title of "The Religion That Kills", "Perfect Peril" actually represents a less sensationalist, less condemning approach than indicated by the publisher's original title to which the author objected.

The founder of Christian Science, Mary Baker Eddy, taught the Biblical basis of her discovery. Dr. Kramer (Ph.D.) explores the Biblical perspective of Christian Science using scientific discipline and her multi-generational experience in Christian Science. Though academically credible, "Perfect Peril" is a personal work to which anyone connected to Christian Science can relate and understand even if they do not agree with the author. Written with respect for Christian Scientists, "Perfect Peril" does not merely generalize. The author enables her readers to see how she developed her perspective, including citing sources of which most are pro-Christian Science such as the writings of Mary Baker Eddy.

"Perfect Peril" provides an excellent catalyst for studying and understanding Christian Science and its culture whether or not you agree with the conclusions.

Perfect book, very justly informative, and speedy shipping

This book is the author's attempt to prove that Christian Science is mind control. She manages that in the first chapter, and the rest of the book seems extraneous.

Linda Kramer, Ph.D., bases her book on the features of a "thought reform group" identified by scholar Robert Lifton, who studied behavior in Chinese prison camps and Chinese universities in the 1940s and 1950s. Lifton identified these features as milieu control, mystical manipulation, the demand for purity, confession, loaded language, a sacred science, doctrine over person, and rejection of outsiders as unworthy. Kramer argues persuasively that Christian Science includes all these characteristics except the "cult of confession." It has an authoritarian leader, unique meanings of words, information management, impossible demands for perfection, and a sacred science that cannot be questioned and controls both sacred and secular realms. Its hold on the minds of its members leads to preventable deaths and suffering of children and adults. A former Christian Scientist, Kramer describes her exodus with an easy, flowing simplicity and sincerity. "I grew up in Christian Science, never dreaming that I would one day leave it, much less write a book critical of it," she begins. "I left the religion for doctrinal reasons but found that, somehow, I remained its emotional prisoner. I was out of Christian Science, but it was definitely not out of me." The book ends with two appendices. In the first she explains how Christian Science theology differs from orthodox Christianity. She backs up her claims with many quotations from the Bible illustrating that the divinity of Jesus and vicarious atonement for sin through the crucifixion are basic Christian beliefs, although both are rejected by Christian Science. The second appendix is a powerful narrative of her ultimately successful work with therapists for emotional and mental health. This book is honest, informational, and uplifting.

Dr. Kramer evaluates the Christian Science healing system in a loving manner. She is sensitive to the Christian Scientist and lets most of them speak from experience. A must read for both Christian Scientists and Non-Christian Scientists.
