Moses once taught the children of Israel a song of praise: “Give ear, O ye heavens, and I will speak; and hear, O earth, the words of my mouth. ... Because I will publish the name of the Lord: ascribe ye greatness unto our God” (Deuteronomy 32:1, 3). Today, people around the world continue to proclaim the greatness of God through their practice of Christian Science. This good work is often recorded in the articles and testimonies regularly published in The Christian Science Journal and the Christian Science Sentinel.
Beginning October 15, 2013, these excellent songs of praise will not only be available to read, but also to listen to in new audio editions of the Journal and the Sentinel. All JSH-Online subscribers will be able to stream the audio editions beginning with issues from January 2013, and, when possible, articles will be read by the original writer. For issues published in the last 90 days, subscribers will have the option to download each audio piece. For any individual who does not subscribe, or would like to purchase audio outside of the 90-day window, the audio editions can be purchased in The Christian Science Publishing Society’s online shop.
A headphones icon ( ) will be featured on the Table of Contents page of each issue as well as on article pages. Clicking this icon launches an audio player, where you can easily listen to the articles being read. This is an excellent way to “read” your magazine while on a walk, cooking, commuting, or simply taking a quiet moment at home or work. This audio feature adds another layer of accessibility for subscribers who are less comfortable with reading on a computer screen.
After months of preparation and coordination with the many writers published in the Journal and the Sentinel, we expect that readers and listeners will benefit from the new audio format.
