WELCOME TO OUR WEBSITE
This website is designed to elucidate for every interested seeker – students, researchers, scholars, whether new to Christian Science or life-long Scientists – the “clear, correct” explanation of what Christian Science is.
Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, wrote her textbook, “Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures,” several years after a severe accident, from the effects of which she fully recovered entirely through prayer. A deeply religious woman, Mrs. Eddy was thereby impelled to study the all-power and the all-presence of God, divine Truth, Life, and Love, and His laws of Good, which she realized had resulted in her complete and permanent healing.
“Science and Health,” first published in 1875, is based entirely on the wholly spiritual laws she discovered during her three years’ search of Scripture and of the teachings and practice of Christ Jesus, our Wayshower. This textbook exists still as the first text ever written dealing exclusively and comprehensively with divine metaphysics: the humble, individual study and intelligent, prayerful application of God’s spiritual laws as they apply to all human need.
This site enables you to download, at no charge, additional useful materials for your study and application of God’s laws. These offerings, currently comprised of four additional texts, pertinent because also dedicated to this purpose, are based entirely on the spiritual precepts presented in full in “Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures” and other of Mrs. Eddy’s writings. In her own words: “A few books . . . based on this book, are useful.” (S&H x: 9)
The four useful, full-length textbooks available on this site for your use are:
(1) CHRISTIAN SCIENCE: Its “Clear, Correct Teaching” and COMPLETE WORKS, by Herbert W. Eustace, C.S.B. (this text is popularly known as The One Volume or OV)
Mr. Eustace, an authorized teacher and practitioner of Christian Science for many decades, was a student of Edward A. Kimball, C.S.B., the first Lecturer of Christian Science. Mrs. Eddy specifically selected Mr. Kimball for this important fledgling task. Both Mr. Kimball and Mrs. Eddy became aware of Mr. Eustace's natural proclivity for spiritual metaphysics and its successful application during his two class instructions, Primary Class and Normal Class, with Kimball, both of which were under Mrs. Eddy's direction. He was the only student Kimball and Eddy ever found who wanted to take advanced class instruction, not so he could teach Christian Science, but specifically to better understand the machinations of animal magnetism, or malicious mental malpractice – an area of study of which Mrs. Eddy once remarked, “Where all students have failed is in not knowing how to handle animal magnetism.” (OV 383) The One Volume is the complete record of Mr. Eustace’s class teaching in Christian Science plus his other articles on spiritual concepts successfully practised during his years in the public practice of Christian Science.
The One Volume is also unique in that "any sincere seeker of Truth" (S&Hx: 23) can put himself through Christian Science class instruction by following the methodology for self-instruction carefully explained in the One Volume's first seven chapters. Based entirely on your individual, spiritual communion with the One Mind, God, Good, Divine Consciousness, you will complete a course of study in spiritual metaphysics like no other. (Refer to (5), below.)
(2) THE FOUNDING FACTS OF CLEAR, CORRECT CHRISTIAN SCIENCE:
We refer to this text as “Founding Facts” or simply “FFs.” The purpose of this text is to show clearly and correctly to “any sincere seeker of Truth” the Mind-provided framework which Mary Baker Eddy as the Discoverer, Founder, and Revelator of Christian Science acknowledges throughout her career to be the infallible, immoveable, divine platform upon which Christian Science is Mind-founded, is Mind-revealed to her, is Mind-practised by her, and upon which this Revelation Mind-rests for all time.
(3) COURSE IN DIVINITY and GENERAL COLLECTANEA of Items By and About Mary Baker Eddy,
compiled by Richard F. Oakes. This text is popularly known as The Blue Book or BB because of the color of its cover.
(4) ESSAYS AND BIBLE LESSONS ascribed to Mary Baker Eddy, and FOOTPRINTS FADELESS by Mary Baker Eddy, with The Science of Man, Early Papers, Visions, and Mind Healing: Historical Sketch
compiled by Richard F. Oakes. This text is popularly known as The Red Book or RB because of the color of its cover.
(5) THE CLASS DRILL: A CLEAR, CORRECT, DIVINE MIND-TUTORED LEARNING EXPERIENCE IN SPIRITUAL METAPHYSICS - CHRISTIAN SCIENCE

There are two parts: THE “UNDERGRADUATE” COURSE and THE “GRADUATE” COURSE. We invite you to open (below) and peruse the Contents as structured whenever you’re ready for a wholly Mind-tutored, individual class experience in Christian Science.

(7) ALL ARTICLES, LETTERS, AND EDITORIAL COMMENTARIES BY MARY BAKER EDDY AS ORIGINALLY PUBLISHED IN CHRISTIAN SCIENCE SENTINEL, 1898 – 1910; 1917 (collected as a research tool)
