Timidity overcome through sharing Science and Health

From the December 1996 issue of The Christian Science Journal

With the many opportunities for giving during the holiday season, how natural it is to think of giving the gift of healing as found in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy. The Publisher's Office regularly hears from people who are sharing the book, and recently received a letter from a member of The Mother Church in Westlake Village, California, who has volunteered to work with this Office to place Science and Health in local bookstores. She wrote to express her gratitude for the growth and freedom she has gained in sharing the book more openly. Below are excerpts from her letter.

Ever since I found Christian Science in 1979, I have felt that Science and Health should be available in bookstores. My husband and I have always loved bookstores for their diversity of ideas, and over the years have spent much of our leisure time in them.

Then what should happen, but two years ago I learned that Science and Health was going to be reintroduced in bookstores. From that time until now I have been active as a volunteer Publisher's Representative. Several bookstores that didn't carry Science and Health now do. Also, our community has three new bookstores. The way is opening up!
