About the Author:

Books published by the Carpenters are unique because they include Mrs. Eddy’s unpublished writings. Mrs. Eddy wrote prolifically on Christian Science. Her students kept diaries and records of what she taught them. They wrote memoirs of her, and metaphysical papers based on her teachings. Through the selfless work of Gilbert C. Carpenter and his son, Gilbert, Jr., many of these writings were collected, published, and excerpts incorporated into their own works. The scope of their work places them among the great pioneers of the Cause. They gathered a large collection of material by Mrs. Eddy, and from this, they printed books of her unpublished writings. They printed manuscripts by her students, and also wrote a number of books themselves that are invaluable as records of the early days of the movement The Carpenters paid a high price for defying the Directors’ policy of ‘authorized literature.’ They were ostracized by their branch church in Providence, Rhode Island and misunderstood by the Field in general. The Board of Directors tried to suppress their books and discredit their work by spreading many false rumors about them, such as: they were not loyal to the Board of Directors; their names had been dropped from membership in The Mother Church; they deviated from Mrs. Eddy’s teachings and put forth a spurious form of Christian Science; they wrote several books and signed Mrs. Eddy’s name to them. None of these rumors were true. Those who knew the Carpenters always spoke of their integrity and loyalty to Mrs. Eddy and the Church. Their healing work was outstanding. The love and spirituality they expressed made a deep impression on many who met them. They had an understanding of her teachings on animal magnetism and malicious malpractice that was exceptional. Mr. and Mrs. Carpenter; Sr. came into Christian Science in 1894. Mr. Carpenter served Mrs. Eddy in many special ways. He was an Executive Member of The Mother Church, and chairman of the building committee for the Extension. From March 1905 to March 1906, he served her as an Associate Secretary at Pleasant View. Because of family demands, he could serve her for only one year; but when he left, Mrs. Eddy granted him the degree of C.S.B. — the only one conferred upon a student after only one year of the Divinity Course with her.
