Book Review: Building of the Mother Church by Joseph Armstrong and Margaret Williamson


Author: Joseph Armstrong and Margaret Williamson

Publication Info: Boston, Mass. : Christian Science Pub. Society, c1980.
ISBN: 087510116X

Summary/Review:

A book I read to research a walking tour chronicles the colorful history of Boston’s “Mother Church.” It’s in two parts with Armstrong covering the original church and Williamson writing much later about the massive “extension” of the church.  It definitely has a ring of boosterism for the Church of Christ, Scientist but interesting enough for the stories of the creation of one of Boston’s great landmarks.
