Computers and Concordances

The computer, of which we hear much today, is a helpful device that releases men from long hours of arduous calculations or from the search for other needed information. The computer brings almost instantaneous answers to questions that otherwise might be practically unobtainable.

Mrs. Eddy always gave loving consideration to the needs of her followers. In 1903 she presented them with a Concordance to the textbook of Christian Science, Science and Health, of which she is the author. Explaining in the preface to the Concordance the need for an enlargement of the index that then appeared in the textbook, she wrote: "It finally became apparent that the only satisfactory way to meet this need was to prepare a complete Concordance, which should include all prominent words and phrases which the student may desire to find. I am confident that this work will fully meet his demands."

Just as the computer stores figures, facts, and detailed information on any desired subject, so the Concordance helpfully stores Mrs. Eddy's words for quick and easy reference.
