Touching on 'the Eternities'

A brief history of the Christian Science Bible Lessons

From the March 2012 issue of The Christian Science Journal


1898 was an extraordinarily fruitful year for Mary Baker Eddy and the Christian Science movement. It was the year in which the Christian Science Board of Lectureship and Board of Education were established, and the Committee on Publication begun; The Christian Science Publishing Society became a reality, and by the fall of 1898 it was publishing a new “weekly newspaper,” now known as the Christian Science Sentinel.
