Here are the rules:

- Copy the 5th complete sentence into your blog.
- Tag 5 others.
The book closest on my desk was The Kingdom of the Cults, edited by Ravi Zacharias, and originally authored by Walter Martin.
Page 161, 5th complete sentence (you ready for this?):
“The claim by Bill and Dittemore that the directors had usurped the authority of Eddy and acted contrary to her expressed wishes went unchallenged for the most part by the Christian Science board of directors, for Dittemore had strong evidence from The Memoirs of Adam Dickey, which the board suppressed, and excerpts from the unpublished writings of Eddy’s secretary, Calvin A. Frye, that she expected a personal successor within fifty years.”
Well, a little Christian Science political history never hurt anyone, I suppose…
