Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures is Mary Baker Eddy’s primary work and the definitive textbook on Christian Science. It explains the scientific laws behind the teachings and healings of Christ Jesus.
Citations from Science and Health, and the Bible, make up the weekly lesson-sermon that is read in Church, and together, the two books are designated as the Pastor of the church since they are the exclusive source of any “preaching.”
From the first chapter, “Prayer,” to her exegeses of Genesis and Revelation, 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 it did in biblical times.
For more than 135 years, readers have testified that reading and studying this book has given them a spiritual sense of the Bible and their permanent relationship to God, and has also resulted in physical healing and spiritual uplift.
