Christian Science: Its Results
Originally published in the 1912 pamphlet titled Christian Science: Its Results
THE intelligent study of any science should proceed by the orderly use of its text-books. Its laws and its statements thus learned are to be proved in the class-room, in the laboratory, or in the field, as the case may be. Christian Science, universal in its usefulness and in its availability, is likewise to be learned from its text-book and then proved and demonstrated in all the various avenues and activities of every-day life, wherever man mingles with man or his interests touch those of his fellows.
Christian Science has but one text-book, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy. It is not a book to be quickly read or hastily thumbed over as one would a shallow novel. Nor is it to be approached with bias or prejudice if one would share its riches; but its truths may be proved and in turn imparted by child or sage who turns its leaves with an open mind. Only the open flower it is that catches the dew and yields its honey to the bee.
Saint and sinner meet on common ground, in the pages of this remarkable book. Time and again its pages have been rudely opened by unfriendly hands in search of phrases to wrench from their context and with which to smite men of straw, yet neither force nor deceit, the blundering of the bear or the cunning of the fox, can avail to divert or suppress its tidings of comfort and joy.
