The book won every argument

Why not read Science and Health this fall?

I was Raised as a Roman Catholic, but during my teens I began questioning my beliefs and, eventually, the existence of God. Later, while I was in college, a friend gave me a copy of the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy.

At the time, I considered myself an agnostic, since I doubted that God really existed. Partly to humor my friend and partly out of curiosity, I read the first chapter, "Prayer," and scanned the rest. Like most college students in the late seventies, I was interested in a lot of different ideas being investigated at that time. And I considered the textbook as belonging in that category.
