On Searching the Scriptures

That Mary Baker Eddy discovered in the Bible the truth she termed "Christian Science" is becoming generally recognized. In her work "Retrospection and Introspection" are recounted the experiences that led to this revelation. And "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," the textbook of Christian Science, Mrs. Eddy has designed to be a commentary on the Bible, thus indicating the foundational position of the Word of God in this Science.

A perusal of Mrs. Eddy's writings will reveal the fact that she invariably accords precedence to the Bible throughout her teachings. Yet, occasionally, one finds the neophyte in Christian Science reversing this order by studying Science and Health assiduously and giving the Bible but cursory attention, with the excuse that the Bible never has appealed to him, that it is difficult to understand, and that he does not see how the ancient compilation can be related to his everyday experiences.
