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 meets the eye—especially what's in the heart impelling their lives.

In this continuing series, we share questions and answers that have come up recently—in one-to-one conversations, in informal discussion groups, and through correspondence with 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 responded to. But they do come out of actual exchanges between Christian Scientists and their neighbors.

With so much attention being directed toward the physical body these days, people are sometimes surprised to encounter what Christian Science teaches about man as being spiritual. This exchange is taken from correspondence between an individual and our church headquarters.
