Anthology of Classic Articles III
This book is a wonderful anthology of 45 well-loved articles and poems previously published in the Christian Science Sentinel and The Christian Science Journal. The articles in this compilation are drawn from issues from the first 126 years of The Christian Science Journal and 107 years of the Christian Science Sentinel. These articles have been enthusiastically recommended by a group of Christian Science practitioners and teachers as being particularly helpful in their healing work. Available from your local Christian Science Reading Room by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or purchase online.
