They attended weekly meetings, sought the help of spiritual practitioners, and turned to Mary Baker Eddy's Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures for religious guidance. Viewing such attraction with alarm, American Reform rabbis sought to counter Christian Science's appeal by formulating a Jewish vision of happiness and health. Unlike Christian Science, it acknowledged the benefits of modern medicine yet, sharing the belief in God as the true source of healing, similarly emphasized the power of visualization and affirmative prayer." "Examining an important and previously unwritten chapter in the story of American Judaism, this book sheds light on religious and social concerns of twentieth-century American Jewry, including ways in which adherence to Jewish Science helped thousands bridge the perceived gap between Judaism and modernity."--Jacket." ;
