A Christian Science Reading Room is a good place to start finding out about Christian Science. It’s like a combined library and bookstore with many resources available either to use on-site, or to buy or borrow. And there is always someone there who can answer your questions, and offer insights and encouragement for your own spiritual journey.

Resources include the Bible and reference works to help in Bible study, as well as Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures and other works by Mary Baker Eddy (the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science).

You will find magazines, books and audio books, CDs with both music and spoken word, as well as the award-winning newspaper, The Christian Science Monitor. Computer terminals have software for research and study in the Bible, Mrs. Eddy’s writings, and the Christian Science periodicals.

As well, there is a physical archive of periodicals which not only have interesting and inspiring articles, but also contain documented accounts of spiritual healing through Christian Science going back to 1883.

As you seek a better understanding of God, this is an inviting and supportive place where you can further your search.
