Distribution of Literature

The distribution of Christian Science literature with its health-giving message offers a rare opportunity for our churches and societies to do much toward promoting and extending the religion of Christian Science. Through the pages of our periodicals, the public may become acquainted with the teachings and practice of Christian Science and be led to read its textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy.

Mrs. Eddy was a sincere and consistent distributor of Christian Science literature. When an article appeared in our periodicals which she thought especially helpful, she requested that marked copies containing it be mailed to persons whom she designated. Our Leader did this with the sincere conviction that to place our literature in the hands of an interested reader was one of the most effective means that could be employed to spread the gospel of Christian Science.

In the early days of our movement the work of distribution was done mainly through individual practitioners acting on their own responsibility. This work was greatly encouraged by the Publishing Society, which sometimes furnished literature to the practitioners at a reduced rate, and sometimes gratuitously, for that purpose.
