Wednesday, September 14, 2011
Lucia Greenhouse discusses growing up as a Christian Scientist, in a house where you could not be sick and where no medicine was allowed. Her memoir, Fathermothergod: My Journey Out of Christian Science, tells of the struggle that she and her siblings faced when their mother became sick and wouldn’t get treatment. She looks at the Christian Science faith and chronicles its complicated legacy for her family.
