Teaser Tuesday (August 11)

Teaser Tuesday button
Should Be Reading hosts the Teaser Tuesdays weekly event.

My modified rules are as follows:

Grab your current read. Pick two or three “teaser” sentences more or less at random from the book, anywhere on the page. You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your teaser from… that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given! (Please avoid spoilers!) (Read the official Teaser Tuesday rules.)

My teaser:

Fingerprints of God by Barbara Bradley Hagerty“As a Christian Scientist, I had come to believe in the power of prayer to alter my experience, whether that be my wracking cough or my employment status, my mood or my love life. In that time, I had witnessed several healings” (p. 2).

This is from Fingerprints of God: The Search for the Science of Spirituality by Barbara Bradley Hagerty.

  5. One of my best friends in high school was from a Christian Scientist family, and I was totally amazed when her mother had (minor) surgery without any anesthesia or pain meds. It's a very interesting faith, but totally mysterious to me. Very intriguing teaser!
