I took a serious read of this book when I was 19 and it brought much healing. Freedom from smoking, drinking etc., was moved to go back to college and resources became available to do so...wonderful physical and other financial healings as well. Most importantly this book teaches you how to have an on-going relationship with does one connect with God, effectively pray, feel the presence and love of God etc. It opens up the spiritual teachings of the Bible, especially those of Christ Je ...more

As far as spiritual books go i thoroughly enjoy pulling this book out to look up everything from marriage to sin to child rearing. Science and Health was written by Mary Baker Eddy and created a Christian sect called Christian Science. This book is read alongside the Bible by millions of people throughout the world. Eddy does a wonderful job at explaining things how they are, like she has a third eye that is all knowing. She explains things from the Bible in terms that everyone can understand. T ...more

Very healing. Embrace this book with an open heart and mind. Once you understand some of the truths and ideas, you cannot go back to your old way of thinking. Strengthened my awareness of my oneness with God. One thing; you must be seeking wisdom or fulfillment to understand this book. If you are not ready, don't waste your time. Keep the book on the shelf for when you are ready because you WILL need it someday. Then read it over and over and over. Great compliment to the Bible especially the Go ...more

I read from this book every day along with the Bible. But to read it straight through is a delightful experience. This book and the Bible are the pastors of the First Church of Christ, Scientist. (Christian Science)The last chapter is exclusively testimonies from people who were healed by reading this book.

This Book is the most amazing book I have ever read . . It is saving my life and helping me to understand scripture and be positive about myself. . this is logic without being fear and cuts through lots of misunderstandings. This is the Book that my church Christian Science has along with the Bible. I am needing to read it more often when I am feeling afraid. .or having anxiety.

[Reply to another reviewer on Visual Bookshelf who referred to the religion as "Christian Scientology":] Not Christian Scientology, Justin. Christian Science. It has nothing to do with Scientology.

Science and Health is an invaluable book teaching us to think beyond the way our minds usually do. It makes us question what is “reality." We know that when we look into the distance and see what looks like water, it's actually a mirage and it plays on our physical senses. Therefore, we know that all appearances don't hold true.

What this books hints at is there is a higher power of Love and Truth that are guiding us which are beyond out senses. This can affect our lives in career choices, family

Very interesting and uplifting text. Will give the reader a whole new outlook on the spiritual nature of life. Mary Baker Eddy was visionary in her outlook. Even if the reader is not inclined toward a particular religious belief system it is still interesting from a historical standpoint and because her explanation of the spiritual import of the bible is so different from other writers. If you've ever been interested in metaphysics it's a must read!

Fantastic book on why health, both physical and spiritual, is a matter of the mind, not the subject of a wrathful or fickle humanlike godhead. This shows the abstraction between Truth and, well, not-Truth, or Falsity, and how it in fact defines Reality. Also shows how Time deos not really exist; for more on that, read Hawking's Brief History of Time.

Most spiritual books from this era are harder to read. I found this fascinating and engaging. Insight into a movement.

I have studied and read this book since I was a young girl. I'm so happy to have finally read it cover to cover.

Reading this book opened my eyes to how many "new age" / progressive interpretations of Christianity draw from "Science and Health". This author isn't ever sited as a source. For example "The Art of Spiritual Healing" appears to paraphrase her work often. The author Joel Goldsmith however welcomes complimentary medical means and leaves that door open. Consider Mary Baker Eddy wrote this in 1875 - (think: blood letting, leaches, later discovered to be dangerous medical practices...). Its understa ...more

When in need, no matter what the need, I find help and healing from the passages I read here. It has been a source of enlightenment when reading the Bible, as it helps me see a more spiritual unfoldment of Scripture. The ideas in this book were written with inspiration, and that is the way it must be read, by those seeking inspiration and enlightenment. Read with an open mind. Allow God to guide your thought. Take a sentence at a time, ponder it, roll it over in your thinking, see if you can app ...more

Nonsense, and badly written nonsense at that, but the book is influential. It's more readable in little bits, and some quotes are sensible, though some of the anecdotes are laughably dubious, such as the supposedly true story of the father who held his baby underwater until it grew comfortable enough to play there. Mothers should remember this story, Eddy admonishes her readers, so that they can prepare their babies properly. Yikes!

This title sounds quite interesting, I'm not that much of a religious person, but being open minded I like to hear and read of other's opinions and understandings of a topic... This relates to the practice of Christian Science beliefs...
I wanted to like it more than I did. You need a good explanation of how Mrs Eddy defines her terms to help you to read it. The section with testimonials was interesting. I will probably re-read it at some
point. Found my copy in a used bookstore in the late 1980's.

I will have to pick this up & read the last third when 1. I'm not in debilitating unending physical pain & 2. I can better afford to get maaad. As it is... I've never read a holy book that made me feel this shitty about humankind. But that may be zany ol' disabled me.

Interesting dynamics of a woman speaking back subjectively to male-dominated turn of the century medicine, which itself was quite subjective.
