Overcoming "two evils"

In the light of Christian Science, the Bible ceases to be a mere record of historical events, a collection of mysterious, perplexing, and contradictory statements, or a succession of wise counsels, good enough maybe but perhaps felt to be limited in scope, and sometimes deemed applicable only to a bygone race in a bygone age.

All who study the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, find that it throws a clear light on the Bible. This lies mainly in its revelation that all causation is Mind, and that in consequence every effect is a mental phenomenon, and that to be understood and to be of practical value, the Scriptures must be metaphysically and spiritually interpreted. Mrs. Eddy writes on page 241 of the textbook, "Take away the spiritual signification of Scripture, and that compilation can do no more for mortals than can moonbeams to melt a river of ice."
