    For over 135 years, readers have testified that this book has given them a spiritual sense of the Bible and their permanent relationship to God, which resulted in physical healing and spiritual uplift. The last one hundred pages of this book are letters from just a few of those readers. One such letter notes that in reading this book, “I have found a God whom I can love and worship with my whole heart, and I now read my Bible with interest and understanding. I was healed of very bad rheumatism simply by reading Science and Health.”

    Author, teacher, and healer, Mary Baker Eddy questioned conventional views about science, theology, and medicine, and for years searched the Bible for answers. She writes, “In the year 1866, I discovered the Christ Science or divine laws of Life, Truth, and Love, and named my discovery Christian Science.” From that time forward, she devoted her life to practicing this healing Science of Christianity, teaching others how to heal in the same way, and sharing her profound insights with the world.

The Bible

OVER THE CENTURIES, the universal truths about God and humanity contained in the Bible – the courage and spiritual vision of the Old Testament prophets, the inspiring accounts of the words and works of Christ Jesus, and the ministry of the apostles — have brought guidance, understanding, and healing to all who ponder its timeless message.

    Praised as "the noblest monument in English prose," the King James Version set an English language standard for the Bible from its first printing in 1611 to well into the twentieth century, and it remains a popular and deeply respected version by millions around the globe.

    Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, founded her scientific system of healing and ethics on the Scriptures. She wrote: "The Bible has been my only authority" and "my only textbook," "the chart of life" and that which "contains the recipe for all healing."

    The Holy Bible continues to provide the foundation for understanding humanity’s innate spirituality and goodness, and God’s never-ending healing love.

The Ten Commandments, given by God to Moses, are among the fundamental lessons for children and adults alike. These laws address how to love God and live in harmony, and they give authority to those who are obedient to them.

The Ten Commandments are the foundation of spiritual education. In Deuteronomy, we read, "And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children..." (Deut. 6:6, 7). Mary Baker Eddy says in her book Miscellaneous Writings 1883-1896, "Obedience to these commandments is indispensable to health, happiness, and length of days" (p.67).
