A New Enrichment

For a long time earnest students of Christian Science have gathered from Science and Health the coherent teaching of Mrs. Eddy on practical topics by the use of its full concordance, and from her other published works by means of partial indexes. The recent appearance of a complete concordance to these other writings is therefore a special occasion for gratitude and rejoicing, in that it renders the entire field of her published thought accessible to every one without the expenditure of much time or extended labor.

Mrs. Eddy's teaching, as contained in her books, we conceive to be the pure spring of living water for this age, for it draws from the eternal fountains revealed in days of old by prophets and seers and messengers of God, and offers its blessing universally. The apostle Peter, using the figure of light, speaks of prophecy as thus unfolding its blessing: "Whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts." He declares that the message of Scripture is not of private interpretation, indicating that it is not sectarian or divisive, but scientific and universal, and he goes on to say, "No prophecy ever came by the will of man: but men spake from God, being moved by the Holy Ghost." Thus the Revised Version clarifies an often quoted passage. These utterances of "holy men of God" in the past have, through the interpretation and demonstration of Christian Science, become present inspiration.
