David Brown: Over the years, as more and more people have found out about Christian Science, they likely came across the history of The Church of Christ, Scientist, founded by a lifelong student of the Bible, Mary Baker Eddy. What’s meant by Science, and the tremendous importance placed on that other word, Christian? Science means it’s a systematic approach to knowledge or learning. A more modern interpretation might include the demonstrable evidence of that Science. But what about Christian? It is putting Christ at the center of that knowledge. That’s why it’s so crucial, not just to church members, but to the world at large. And it’s something that our guest today knows a great deal about.
