From childhood on in New England, Mary Baker Eddy, who discovered Christian Science in 1866, loved The Bible and what it told her about God’s love for mankind. In mid-life, she was expected by her doctors to die from a fatal injury. Instead, she read one of Jesus’ healings in The Bible, and found herself suddenly well. Pursuing the reason for this rapid recovery of health without medical attention, she studied the Scriptures, specifically the Gospels, for three years. She recorded her findings in her book, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, which explains Jesus’ healings as possible for anyone who seeks to understand them as the “dominion” given to us by God as “His image and likeness,” as the first chapter of Genesis in The Bible says.
Science and Health is the textbook for all students of Christian Science. Thousands of people have been healed just by reading it. It and the King James translation of The Bible serve as the “Pastor” for our church services. Christian Scientists around the globe study the same Bible Lesson each week, which is read by lay readers during the Sunday service.
As Christian Scientists, we invite you to explore this healing Science with us at our Sunday services, during our Wednesday Testimony Meetings and at our Reading Room, where The Bible and the writings of Mary Baker Eddy are available for study and/or purchase.
NOTE: The Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures are essential to learn about Christian Science and its healing practice. You can read or listen to Science and Health free online at www.christianscience.com under the Publications and Activities tab.
