Many students of the Bible have found inspiration and comfort from its teachings, even though they have generally taken these teachings literally. But what a revelation it is to these students when they discover that the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," written by Mary Baker Eddy, is indeed a key to the Scriptures!

In this textbook, students learn the spiritual meaning of Bible passages and understand their real significance. Well-known Bible verses become of practical value in human affairs. Students soon realize the truth of Mrs. Eddy's statement in Science and Health (p. 320), "The one important interpretation of Scripture is the spiritual." The spiritual sense of the Scriptures is the scientific sense, which makes Bible truths subject to proof.

The power of a single Bible truth understood spiritually has often accomplished great things. The following is one such instance. While two friends and I were motoring in Glacier National Park in the United States, we drove over Logan Pass several times in clear weather. This is the highest point of the road in that mountainous region. One day later on, when starting the climb, we noticed a little white mist at the top of the highest peak. The harmless-looking bit of mist, however, rapidly swooped down and enveloped the car. I at once turned to my understanding of Christian Science for protection.
