Announcing the Name of the Textbook and its Author

Occasionally the question arises as to whether the Sunday School superintendent in reading "the scientific statement of being" from Science and Health (p. 468) at the close of the exercises should follow the practice of the First Reader, who in the church service merely states that he will read "the scientific statement of being" from the Christian Science textbook and does not give the full name of the textbook and its author. This is a proper practice for a First Reader, because earlier in the service the full name of the textbook and its author has been given. It would not, however, be proper in the Sunday school, for the reason that the name of the textbook and its author has not previously been given. Usually at No. 8 in the Order of Exercises (Church Manual, p. 127) the superintendent makes a statement somewhat as follows: "I shall now read 'the scientific statement of being' from the Christian Science textbook, 'Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures' by Mary Baker Eddy."
