From the outset of his study of Christian Science, the student is impressed with the interrelation of the Bible and "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy. This impression strengthens, as study progresses, until it becomes certain that their correlation is complete. Having reached such conviction, the student knows that through spiritualization of thought the agreement can be discerned more and more. Often he finds that a single sentence in Science and Health epitomizes the truth presented in a Bible chapter or incident, throwing upon the Scriptures just the spiritual light needed to make its meaning clear. Anyone who has searched for companion readings has had the experience of finding close correlatives through a word or a phrase in Science and Health which gives the substance of a Bible narrative or discourse.

There are two cogent reasons for this correlation. Clearly, one of these is found in Mrs. Eddy's prayerful study of the Scriptures which enabled her, after her discovery, to interpret their spiritual meaning and give to the world the scientific explanation of the underlying truth. The major reason is that the inspired word of both the Bible and Science and Health is from divine Mind, the source of true ideas. This becomes apparent as soon as Christian Science demonstration takes place. Then no doubt remains of the fact of the unity of the Bible and the Christian Science textbook. The results accruing are in exact accordance with the promises of the Scriptures, and the proof is incontrovertible.
