One of things that drew me to Christian Science was Mary Baker Eddy’s assertion that her inspiration and revelation, based on the teachings of Christ Jesus and explained in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, was subject to proof: “You can prove for yourself, dear reader, the Science of healing, and so ascertain if the author has given you the correct interpretation of Scripture” (547:6). I found myself reading Science and Health with a highlighter, marking lines that were provable statements that could be tested, as well as lines that just seemed indisputably true. I wrestled with the ideas, asking God if what I was reading was true, and the answer came as healing occurred in all areas of my life.

Jesus promised that we would do the works that he did and could expect to do even greater works (see John 14:12). That’s a promise whose fulfillment I work toward every day in my healing practice of Christian Science. If you’re seeking healing, you may want to begin by reading Science and Health. The last 100 pages of that book are testimonials from individuals who were healed simply by reading it and letting the ideas uplift their thoughts of God and man. The official website for Christian Science can be found at, and it is treasure trove of resources for inspiration and spiritual growth.  On that site is a page that explains the scope of services for a Christian Science practitioner:
