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 Pastor

It's common for people to look to a pastor when they need guidance, comfort, healing, or a deeper sense of purpose. The Christian Science Pastor is available to offer this kind of nurturing and mentoring around the clock. That’s because the worldwide Church of Christ, Scientist has just one universal, permanent Pastor.

Mary Baker Eddy, who discovered and founded Christian Science, wanted her Church’s Pastor to be as pure, constant, and powerful as God’s Word itself. To this end, in 1895 she ordained as Pastor both the Bible and her book, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, which opens up the Bible in its application to all human needs. Together, these two books are a mentor, spiritual resource, and timeless guide open to all—a Pastor for the world. As the universal Pastor for the Church of Christ, Scientist, the Bible and Science and Health embrace church congregations with a message of Christian love, preach the Word with clarity, minister to those needing care in every place and circumstance, and prove their worth through healing transformation. Because of its timeless spiritual message, the Pastor is a powerful preacher at all Christian Science worship services. On Sundays, a Bible Lesson-Sermon of passages from these books is presented by Readers. Wednesday services include topical readings from the Pastor and time for congregants to share how it has illumined their inseparable relationship with God and brought about healing through prayer.

Christian Scientists “take the inspired Word of the Bible as our sufficient guide to eternal Life” (Science and Health, p. 497). Together with Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, it serves as the pastor of The First Church of Christ, Scientist.
