Publisher's Summary

Christian Science is exact and scientific in its teaching about God and about Christ, and it declares unswervingly that their true nature can and should be understood practically and intelligently here and now, and indeed that to attain any measure of real health and salvation we must first follow the injunction to "acquaint now thyself with him [God], and be at peace".

Performer Mike Norgaard needs a dictionary

Great and helpful book, important subject matter. BUT but this performer, Mike Norgaard, often mispronounces words and sometimes reads the book's text incorrectly. For example, a well known poem by Mary Baker Eddy, he reads "...Felt ye the power of the WORLD"...rather than "Felt ye the power of the WORD" (Mrs Eddy said "word.") There seems to be some thoughtfulness of the narrator regarding the text, but his performance has so many errors. If this were a novel, maybe saying the wrong words would be a minor issue. But when the whole idea is that Truth and Mind and Principle are the law of God, and in fact are synonyms for God, so accuracy becomes essential. On iPads and other devices you can slow down his pace, but if Alexa is reading to you, I don't think she is currently capable of slowing down the reader (as of 1/25/19.) Some of his emphasis is ok, but other times, he breezes through in s somewhat oblivious sing-song tone, seeming inattentive to the words at hand. For example, early in the reading he mis pronounces the word "idolatrous" as idolaTOR-EE-OUS. (and he does this twice. within a few sentences.) Then does something odd to the word "emanation" shortly after that, and then mispronounces "Immanuel" he reads it as Iimmanu-ELLE like the woman's name. Reading about the craft of book-narrating, it is clear that narrators should have the self-discipline to LOOK UP every word they are not sure about and learn to pronounce it correctly.. And just as important (or much moreso) they should make sure they read the actual words, not just MAKE UP words that look similar as they flit over paragraphs thinking they sound pretty good on the audio recording.. While the narrator can work on his skills, my guess is that THIS book will never be -re-recorded by a more qualified narrator, so we are stuck with this version, which seems unfair to its author, Mr Doorly.
