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 should anyone be interested in reading about metaphysical healing?

From the July 2018 issue of The Christian Science Journal


As a staff editor for The Christian Science Journal and Christian Science Sentinel, I regularly have the privilege of reading submissions to these magazines from authors all over the world who have experienced healing through prayer, including the healing of conditions deemed incurable or hopeless by medical physicians. Nothing has been more inspiring to me than to read about how people have felt the presence of God, divine Love, through their prayers, and have been spiritually uplifted, transformed, and restored to wholeness.
