Worldwide meetings being scheduled to consider Science and Health

The headlines read: from British Columbia, "Words that changed the world"; from Georgia, "Christian Science Textbook Makes Most-Influential List"; and from Michigan, "Science and health book honored." Many of the clippings that have been sent to us here in Boston, following a news release sent out by The Mother Church, not only have noted the recognition given by the Women's National Book Association to Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, but they have also noted the special issue of The Christian Science Journal which gives a look at the broad impact of Mrs. Eddy's book.

Typical is the report from a paper in New Zealand: "'Because of the healing and transforming power of its message, Science and Health has been a best seller for over 80 years,' points out Virginia S. Harris, publisher for the writings of Mary Baker Eddy, in the special edition of The Christian Science Journal. 'Science and Health addresses individuals of different ages, cultures, and economic backgrounds. It speaks unconditionally of the naturalness of God's goodness.'" The paper also quoted William E. Moody, editor of the Journal: "'In Science and Health, she [Mrs. Eddy] brings out the deep spiritual import of the basic themes of biblical Christianity such as salvation, sacrifice, sin, baptism, grace and redemption, and presents a scientific approach that brings healing and comfort.'"
