"It is truth"

To those desiring to progress in Christian Science it may be said that no more helpful course can be pursued than a faithful, systematic, and prayerful study of The Christian Science Quarterly Bible Lessons. The Bible contains the word of Truth that makes man free. But a searcher for the truth who is uninstructed in Christian Science and without the light of spiritual understanding finds himself groping in darkness at the portal of salvation. "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy opens the door, revealing to mortals the light of Truth which casts out the sense of darkness and fear that seems to separate man, made in God's likeness, from the presence of his Father, wherein is eternal Life.

The Christian Science Quarterly Bible Lessons, as the title page explains, comprise "selected references from the Bible with correlative passages from the Christian Science textbook." In the "Explanatory Note" which follows, we read further: "The canonical writings, together with the word of our textbook, corroborating and explaining the Bible texts in their spiritual import and application to all ages, past, present, and future, constitute a sermon undivorced from truth, uncontaminated and unfettered by human hypotheses, and divinely authorized." That these Lesson-Sermons are divinely authorized is proved by the healing influence, both spiritual and physical, experienced by every one who, obedient to the purpose of Mrs. Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, devotes a portion of each day to their study, as well as by those who with open heart listen to the reading of the Lesson from the desk on Sunday, uniting their own right reasoning with the word of Truth as it is voiced by the Readers; that is to say, who bear witness. In the words of Isaiah: "Let them hear, and say, it is truth."
