Science and Health, with Key to the Scriptures is the central text of the Christian Science religion. It was written by Mary Baker Eddy, inspired by studies of the Bible she undertook in 1867 following a healing experience. Science and Health posits a wholly metaphysical view of Christianity in which sin, disease, and death are not of God, and are therefore not real. Further, it suggests that by striving toward a spiritual understanding of the world as God's perfect creation, these "false beliefs" are shed from one's experience.
"Science and Health, read with understanding"
This ground-breaking book is for the one who is not satisfied with the standard theological positions regarding life and death, health and sickness and sin; one who is eager for a fuller, more practical concept of God as taught and demonstrated by Christ Jesus. Astoundingly original, it challenges the popular notions of church, religion, and medicine, and clarifies Christianity not as a system of beliefs, but as a demonstrable science.
A compilation of the writings of Mary Baker Eddy from 1883 to 1896, other than the textbook of Christian Science.
