Prospecting for "hidden treasure"

Understanding Spiritual Definitions Heals

The old-time prospector for gold was hunting for something that already existed. Obviously the gold had to be somewhere before it could be discovered. It sometimes took perseverance, a willingness to search and search again, before a prospector was rewarded with the discovery of hidden treasure.

The student of Christian Science finds that a consistent search of Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy leads to fruitful exploration of the Bible and reveals treasures untold. The spiritual truth set forth in Science and Health enables people to read and understand the Bible more clearly and to get infinitely more out of it. People are changed and healed by its ageless ideas. Science and Health presents original, spiritual definitions of many Bible terms that make them efficient tools for scriptural exploration. Their use encourages us in our search into the nooks and crannies of the Bible, revealing the rich veins of precious truth found in God's holy Word.

How do these spiritual aids further healing? One way is by defining spiritual ideas scientifically, that is, with spiritual insight and accuracy. Thus they act as signposts to ever clearer understanding and effective application of Christian Science. They also correct erroneous, unscientific reasoning, which would hide from searchers their treasured birthright as sons of God.
