From the March 19, 2012 issue of the Christian Science Sentinel

I WOULD CHOOSE THE  HYMNAL In regard to the February 20 Sentinel, “Hymns and healing,” I have often said that if circumstances were ever such that I could only have one spiritual text at my disposal, I would choose the Christian Science Hymnal (and now the Supplement as well). The hymns draw from the Bible, the writings of Mary Baker Eddy, and hundreds of other authors for a compilation of prayers of praise, affirmation, petition, and gratitude.
