Foundation for Spiritual Healing
The Bible is the basis of Christian Science and the teachings of Mary Baker Eddy. Christian Scientists study the Bible and work to apply the lessons learned from Scripture in their daily lives. The King James Version is the most widely used translation and is quoted more than 800 times in Science and Health.
Science and Health
In the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, Mary Baker Eddy explains the scientific laws behind the teachings and healings of Christ Jesus. From the first chapter, "Prayer," to her exegesis of Genesis and Revelation, to a Glossary of terms, the author invites readers to deeply consider the allness of God, the perfection of man as God's spiritual creation, and how an understanding of these facts brings healing — just as they did in Biblical times. As explained in her book Miscellaneous Writings 1883–1896, (p. 259) "Truth is the power of God which heals the sick and the sinner, and is applicable to all the needs of man."
Christian Science Practitioners
Christian Science practitioners pray for healing for those who call upon them for help. These experienced men and women are also happy, simply to answer questions about the practical blessings that come through the study of Christian Science.
Time is not a factor
This talk explores how we can begin to gain spiritual freedom from limitation associated with time and age. Time is a constant in physics, but totally disappears in metaphysics. Time measures matter, but divine Mind or spiritual consciousness is immeasurable and infinite. This talk distinguishes between time and timelessness, age and agelessness, and encourages freedom from mortal limitations associated with time by understanding more about the spiritual nature of life. This understanding leads to more freedom, more productivity, and more harmony. The speaker is David Hohle, a practitioner and teacher of Christian Science healing. Sponsored by First Church of Christ, Scientist, Santa Monica.
You can listen to weekly podcasts from the Christian Science Sentinel and monthly podcast from The Christian Science Journal on JSH Audio.
The Christian Science Monitor is an independent international news organization that delivers thoughtful, global coverage. We want to inspire people to think about what they've read long after they've left the page. To share what they've learned with others. And to do something that makes a difference.
In an era when the mainstream media has narrowed its focus, we're convinced readers yearn for the opposite. The Monitor's global approach is reflected in how founder Mary Baker Eddy described its object as "To injure no man, but to bless all mankind." Our aim is to embrace the human family, shedding light with the conviction that understanding the world's problems and possibilities moves us towards solutions.

Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases; who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies; who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle's.
