Why ...?

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 are Christian Science publications available to seekers in Reading Rooms?

From the February 2018 issue of The Christian Science Journal

In today’s demanding times, people are yearning to find answers to challenging problems. The surety, strength, regeneration, peace, love, and healing that so many are seeking imbue the Christian Science publications.
