Publisher Description

Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures is Mary Baker Eddy’s primary work and the definitive textbook on the system of healing that she discovered in 1866 and named Christian Science. First published in 1875, Science and Health has sold over 10 million copies and is still a best-seller. It has been cited by the Women’s National Book Association as “one of the 75 books by women whose words have changed the world.”

For over 135 years, readers have testified that reading and studying this book has not only given them a spiritual sense of the Bible and a clearer recognition of their permanent relationship to God, but has also resulted in physical healing and spiritual uplift. Letters from readers that testify to such healing from simply reading the book can be found in the last chapter of Science and Health

This is the only ebook edition authorized by The Mother Church, The First Church of Christ, Scientist.


Mary Baker Eddy (1821–1910) was an influential American author, teacher, and religious leader. She is noted for her groundbreaking ideas about spirituality and healing, which she based on the Bible, particularly Christ Jesus’ words and works. This system of healing, which she denominated Christian Science, puts into action all that she learned from her Bible study. Her ideas are fully articulated in her major work, the best-seller Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, first published in 1875. In 1879, she founded the Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, Massachusetts, which today has branch churches and societies around the world. She established her church “to commemorate the word and works of our Master, which should reinstate primitive Christianity and its lost element of healing.” In 1908 she launched The Christian Science Monitor, a leading international newspaper, the recipient, to date, of seven Pulitzer Prizes. At her passing, hundreds of tributes appeared in newspapers around the world, including The Boston Globe, which wrote, “She did a wonderful—an extraordinary work in the world and there is no doubt that she was a powerful influence for good.”

Life changer

This book will change your life as it has for me and so many others. My parents read this book when I was about a year old and I suffered for months from a rash that the doctors could not relieve. After my parents were reading this book and studying Christian Science for a very short time this rash vanished without the use of any medicine. I am very grateful for all this book has done for me through the years and for this electronic edition. B
