“One of 75 books by women whose words have changed the world.” —National Women’s Book Association
Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy has been changing lives for the better for generations…a must for all spiritual seekers. The last chapter is letters written to the author by individuals who were healed of all types of difficulties just by reading the book!
Science and Health taught me the meaning of spiritual healing. My dear friend and Christian Science practitioner brought me the book after a devastating cancer diagnosis and invasive surgery. I was unable to eat and full of fear about the possibility of recovery. She offered me the book and when I asked where to begin, she simply said, “Just read it.” After she left, I opened the book and arbitrarily began reading. The language seemed archaic and formal but soon after I began to feel the words jumping off the page as if they were written just for me. I fell asleep after reading for a while and when I awakened the darkness within had lifted and I felt an excitement and a ‘knowing’ that something significant had happened. I promptly got up, went to the kitchen, and ate an entire plate of food without any difficulty. It was a subtle yet overwhelmingly powerful experience. I feel so grateful for the unlocked potential of this incredible book.” —Annie, NY

“For many, Science and Health has become a reference book for life.” —Amazon editorial review
The last chapter of Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures entitled “Fruitage,” contains stories of individuals whose lives were touched, transformed and healed just by reading the book. They wrote to the author, Mary Baker Eddy, to express their gratitude and she published their letters as she received them. As one of those individuals wrote, “Only those who have been held in such bondage and have been liberated by the same means, can know the eager joy of the first perusal of that wonderful book.”
Below are a few contemporary stories of lives touched by reading Science and Health.
I have always been a seeker, wanting to satisfy a deep longing for meaning, direction, inner peace and a hunger to know the truth of things. I looked into many philosophies, but never came to that coveted ‘holy grail’ of religious aspiration. But the love of Love was never far away. Then one day I felt impelled to stop in a local used bookstore and found a brand new copy of Science and Health. So began my exploration of what was to become the very essence of my life. As I read, I would frequently stop as the light of spiritual understanding burst forth on a particular passage. Scripture seemed suddenly illumined. Many old beliefs about life, substance and reality itself just dissolved. Debilitating fatigue, chronic bodily aches and pains, stomach and liver problems dissolved right in front of me. As I gradually began to discover my true relationship with my Father-Mother God, my body, my outlook on life, and my relationships all experienced amazing positive changes. I had come home!
I was introduced to Science and Health by a dear friend that once taught me that healing is possible without drugs. The power that faith and spiritual understanding has can improve and cure illness. I found that for me the first step was to accept it’s possible. I started to use this book as a guide – a tool. This book is one of the ways I found to add positivity to my day. It encourages me to read often to get a spiritual outlook for my life. I feel more encouraged not to worry about my problems and am finding material things are less important than before and adding spirituality to my daily life more important. By doing this I feel healthier and feel more like caring for myself and others.
