Our Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, tells us in "The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany" (p. 239): "The Science of the Scriptures coexists with God; and 'Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures' relegates Christianity to its primitive proof, wherein reason, revelation, the divine Principle, rules, and practice of Christianity acquaint the student with God. In the ratio that Christian Science is studied and understood, mankind will, as aforetime, imbibe the spirit and prove the practicality, validity, and redemptive power of Christianity by healing all manner of disease, by overcoming sin and death." Mrs. Eddy also says (ibid., p.203), "All is in your texkbooks."

In this Reading Room it is our privilege to participate in the continuous unfoldment of mankind's reaching out through the study of our textbook to perceive this power. Daily, healings are reported from such study. Beliefs of heart trouble, pneumonia, mental illness, discord in the home and office, friendlessness, have all vanished when, in the Reading Room, the student has become aware of God as All-in-all and of man as God's expression.
