A guidebook on effective prayer 

If you are searching for Christian books on prayer you have come to the right place!  Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures is a guidebook on prayer and healing. It starts with this uplifting paragraph in the Preface.

"To those leaning on the sustaining infinite, to-day is big with blessings. The wakeful shepherd beholds the first faint morning beams, ere cometh the full radiance of a risen day. So shone the pale star to the prophet-shepherds; yet it traversed the night, and came where, in cradled obscurity, lay the Bethlehem babe, the human herald of Christ, Truth, who would make plain to benighted understanding the way of salvation through Christ Jesus, till across a night of error should dawn the morning beams and shine the guiding star of being. The Wisemen were led to behold and to follow this daystar of divine Science, lighting the way to eternal harmony."  

Discovery of the "science" behind Christ Jesus' teachings


Science and Health raises thought from a material to a spiritual basis.  Mary Baker Eddy, the discoverer and founder of Christian Science, was a devout student of the Bible and was inspired to write this book after a significant healing experience.  She shared her new found discovery of the "science" behind Christ Jesus' teachings and healing prayer in the pages of her book.  Eddy "commits these pages to honest seekers for Truth," and reminds us that anything is possible with God.

    Science and Health is used as a companion to The Bible, and both books together are considered as the "pastor" of the church. They are read at Sunday morning and Wednesday evening services at Christian Science churches around the world, and selections from these books are included in the weekly Christian Science Bible Lesson.
