From the March 1953 issue of The Christian Science Journal

What , in the light of Christian Science, is the reasonable view of atomic power and its practical meaning now and in the future for oneself and mankind? Is it to have its way with men, or are they to have their way with it? Can they protect themselves from it? Can they make it serve them constructively? And if mankind as a whole or groups of mankind can do these things, how far can the individual go in the same way? Can he, regardless of what others are doing, remain unharmed by this vast new appearance of force, and have it as his servant? The answers of Christian Science to these questions are of the most definite and satisfying character. They are not unlike its continually demonstrated answers concerning disease.
