Fruitage from focus on Science and Health

In the chapter called "The Christian Science Textbook" in The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany, Mrs. Eddy writes: "Is it too much to say that this book is leavening the whole lump of human thought? You can trace its teachings in each step of mental and spiritual progress, from pulpit and press, in religion and ethics, and find these progressive steps either written or indicated in the book" (p. 114).

What a great basis for study of the textbook this is making for me: to consider the world's progressive steps—in human rights, environmental attitudes, everything—and then trace the underlying mental and spiritual leavening of thought to passages in our textbook! It will certainly help me to take note specifically of how Science and Health is transforming the universe.
