520 "As a man thinketh, so is he-thus is the biblical King
Solomon often quoted by proponents of New Thought, one of
the most influential native religious movements in
America. Albert Amao provides an engaging and serious
history of this and related movements from the eighteenth
century to the present. His discussion ranges from Phineas
P. Quimby, the father of New Thought, and Mary Baker Eddy,
founder of Christian Science, to Myrtle Fillmore,
cofounder of Unity Church of Christianity, William James,
the father of American psychology, and leaders in the
emerging field of Energy Psychology. Amao's aim is to
provide a rational explanation of the power of thought to
heal the mind and body. All methods of mind/spiritual
healing are self-healing, he says; we all have an inner
capacity to heal ourselves. He examines cases of
contemporary New Thought leaders who self-healed from
"incurable" diseases free of medicine, and he describes
the mechanism that triggered their healing. Their
experiences have benefited millions of followers
worldwide. The beauty of New Thought, says Amao, is that
it empowers us to become conscious co-creators of our well
-being and achieve success in other areas of life beyond
recovering our health"--|cProvided by publisher.
