From the August 1906 issue of The Christian Science Journal

The popular teaching to-day, and from time immemorial, regarding heaven, tends to define it as a particular locality situated somewhere in infinite space, beyond the sun, moon, and stars, and to designate it as the abode of God and the faithful departed, where gladness and joy will reign forever. The Century Dictionary in defining heaven says, "In Christian theology heaven is regarded as the region or state of endless happiness enjoyed by angels and faithful departed spirits in the immediate presence of God.
