‘Thou shalt have no other gods before me,’
and the Golden Rule are the all-in-all
of Christian Science.”
The Christian Science Reading Room is an active resource for our community, and is set in the historic center of Philadelphia, less than a five-minute walk from Independence Hall, the Ben Franklin Museum and many other museums and libraries. It invites spiritual discovery. Visitors can explore:
- The Bible. Bibles are available in multiple languages and translations, together with commentaries, dictionaries and annotated editions.
- Science and Health With Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy. The Christian Science textbook provides healing truths to inspire spiritual seekers of all backgrounds and sheds fresh light on familiar Bible texts.
- Christian Science Sentinels, Journals and Heralds. These weekly and monthly magazines contain articles and inspiring accounts of healing as a result of the study of Christian Science.
- The Christian Science Monitor. This Pulitzer Prize-winning international newspaper is available in print and online editions. Its purpose is “to bless all mankind”.
- Books and CDs. All the writings of Mary Baker Eddy, her current biographies, and a variety of children’s books are available. CDs of music, the weekly Bible lesson, and of healing articles, are sold.
