The Christian Science textbook, Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy, was introduced to my father's family before I was born. My father's aunt, who had been healed through Christian Science of an ailment doctors had diagnosed as fatal, was so grateful that she gave copies of Science and Health to everyone in the family.
