I have given the name to all the Christian Science periodicals. The first was The Christian Science Journal, designed to put on record the divine Science of Truth; the second I entitled Sentinel, intended to hold guard over Truth, Life, and Love; the third, Der Herold der Christian Science, to proclaim the universal activity and availability of Truth; the next I named Monitor, to spread undivided the Science that operates unspent. The object of the Monitor is to injure no man, but to bless all mankind.

—Mary Baker Eddy, The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany, p. 353

Why publish testimonies in the Christian Science magazines?

From the November 2017 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Testimonies of healing are a heartfelt thank you to God, and they encourage readers who are seeking healing. Looking over the testimonies in this magazine, you can see how people are living the Science of Christ in a wide variety of experiences, especially in the solving of health problems.
