Some questions and answers about Christian Science

As irrepressible as the coming of a new season is the hunger to understand one another. We all want to know more about our neighbors than simply what meets the eye—especially what's in the heart impelling their lives.

In this continuing series we hope to make it possible to understand Christian Scientists better. What follows is a few informal questions and answers that have come up recently—in one-to-one conversations, in discussion groups, and through correspondence with many people who want to know what Christian Science is and what it's like to be a student of Christian Science. Of course, the responses given here are not presented as final or definitive. Nor are they the only way any particular inquiry might be answered. But they do come out of actual exchanges between Christian Scientists and their neighbors.
