Perfect Peril is a tool for understanding and recovering from the damaging effects of Christian Science. The book examines Christian Science in light of Robert J. Lifton’s classic criteria for “thought reform” and shows how this religion traps its followers in thinking patterns that can harm them emotionally, physically, and spiritually. It also examines Mary Baker Eddy’s charismatic personality, leadership style, claim to divine authority, and misuse of biblical terms. Perfect Peril was originally published under the name The Religion that Kills, a publisher-imposed title to which the author strongly objected.

5.0 von 5 Sternen From the inside out... 1. Januar 2013
Von Alan - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
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. "Perfect Peril: Christian Science and Mind Control" 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.

1.0 von 5 Sternen I don't recommend this book 14. Oktober 2012
Von Nuggetroid - Veröffentlicht auf

I was raised in Christian Science and left as a teenager. I have my share of gripes about the church but I hated this book.

The author spends half the book giving a history of christian science and then wraps it up by explaining why her new born-again-faith is the true meaning of the bible. If you agree with her then go ahead and read this book. If you are not a born-again christian, this book will make you sick to your stomach. I'm gonna see about getting a refund for this awful piece of trash.

Christian Science teaches that we can be in the world but not of it, that there is a spiritual reality that transcends the physical one that we can begin to understand, experience, and enjoy to some extent even while still living here on earth. Ms Kramer says in this book that, despite growing up in a family with generations of believers, she decided she didn't agree that this is what the Bible teaches, especially when she realized that it's not what the majority of Christians believe. She wanted a simpler explanation of Christianity and she found it among one of the more mainstream Christian doctrines. But there were some aspects of the Christian Science way of life and thinking that she found hard to let go of, and so leaving Christian Science caused her at times to feel conflicted, emotional, distressed, and depressed. Seems like, for her own peace of mind, she felt she had to find a way to legitimize her decision to go mainstream by demonizing the Christian Science explanation of Christianity and characterizing it as manipulative and dangerous. Unfortunately, her use of Lifton's criteria for characterizing cults could be (and has been by anti-Christian groups) used even more convincingly to define her current denomination of Christianity as a cult. It seems to me the author has just traded one belief system for another, even more dominant and inflexible, one and has found a way to feel good about that by presenting in this book a very limited and inaccurate picture of what Christian Science offers and acting as if that is the whole and only truth when, in fact, it is just the opposite. If a reader wants a real sense of what it's like for an ordinary person to put into practice in daily life the teachings of Christian Science, I recommend they pick up a copy of the book called Blessings: Adventures of a Madcap Christian Scientist, also available on Amazon (Blessings Adventures Madcap Christian Scientist Though not at all developed to serve as an exhaustive explanation of the Christian Science doctrine, it does show that there is no reason to feel restricted, manipulated, or controlled by the teachings of the religion (as Kramer claims) and that exploring them can and does, in fact, bring much freedom and joy into the human experience.
