And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.
- JAMES 5:15
The prayer that reforms the sinner and heals the sick is an absolute faith that all things are possible to God, a spiritual understanding of Him, an unselfed love.
- Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures

The Bible and the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, by Mary Baker Eddy

Some books can change your life. Christian Scientists study the Bible and the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, by Mary Baker Eddy to gain a deeper understanding of God. The divine Science contained in these two books, when practiced in daily life, brings spiritual healing to every human problem.


Individuals experienced in the healing ministry of Christian Science devote full-time service to helping others through the prayer-based system explained in the book, Science and Health. Practitioners are listed in the Christian Science Journal or at the Christian Science Journal website. Please visit the Reading Room for a free copy of the Journal.
