Extracts from Reports of Christian Science Committees on Publication


The widespread circulation of Christian Science literature is frequently a topic of comment in the publications of other religious denominations. One denominational organ at Grand Rapids which is usually a severe and unfriendly critic of Christian Science contained this comment on the new Publishing House: "The amazing growth of Christian Science in our day is one of the interesting religious phenomena of the modern religious world. ... This sect ... owes its growth and influence to its emphasis on the reality of the spiritual world and the unlimited possibilities of faith. To believe with all one's heart and soul in the reality of the spiritual, and the victory of the spiritual over matter, including disease, is a vital and inspiring faith. ... Christian Science preaches the never failing dominion of the spiritual, and this makes a tremendous appeal to thousands of people."

In an editorial comment on The Christian Science Monitor, an editor, who is not a Christian Scientist, wrote in his newspaper: "We would consider it sacrilegious to destroy a Monitor until we had at least scanned the two outside top columns of the Home Forum department of this superlative publication."
