it is a book to read then reread to understand truly worth it!

I read the review of the person who felt this religion was wrong as well as what is being said in The Science and Health and gave out websites to prove so. We never received any vaccinations. I was raised as a Christian Scientist we as well as many others are still here...
I read the review of the person who felt this religion was wrong as well as what is being said in The Science and Health and gave out websites to prove so. We never received any vaccinations. I was raised as a Christian Scientist we as well as many others are still here. I witnessed many healings ex; my sister being hit by a car at 6 yrs old, my parents being told her internal injuries were fatal, my father devoted as he was refused medical help and the practitioner and family was called my sister is now 57 yrs old and on her own spiritual journey and many people including the police officer became Christian Scientists 4 days from her accident. What this person doesn't realize (or never read the entire book) is that Mary Baker Eddy states that if in your mind you do not feel the strength to overcome whatever sickness you may be holding onto by all means go to the doctor to be healed. What that person is not hearing is it is your choice to attempt to use a practicioner and yourself to heal yourself or go to the doctor and get help to heal yourself, again it is the persons choice to make she doesn't state that you can't or shouldn't she's offering another way to look at dis-ease, sickness, health but most of all a way to know God and become closer to your creator. To realize that no matter what choice you make for yourself God is not here to punish you he is here to comfort you in all situations in your life. Mary Baker Eddy is not saying make a choice either God or Science she is saying you can and will have both if you want them or need them. When I was 12 my father became sick and "chose" to use practioners instead of going to the drs. He died shortly after becoming sick because of his age and autopsy was done he had colon cancer and the dr told my family they would have sent him home to pray (this was 1963). I never lost sight of God but I did lose faith in Christian Science until I was 30 going through troubled times I picked up the Science and health and began to read and realized I did have faith I did believe in God and felt the comfort again It is hard reading I had/have to reread parts of it but it is a good read if you are looking to change your "thought" as it states "mind over matter" not magic for your body. Just as "you are what eat", "you are what you think" which is what Mary Baker Eddy is saying. I hope that person gives it another chance it can change the way you feel and see God and Life.

All this is fine, but

Can the principles in this book allow you to regrow an amputated arm or leg? I respect all religions but there are always limitations.

    Not Authorized Version - don't waste your time

    This is NOT Science and Health With Key to the Scriptures. It is jumbled and mixed with computer code. Get the real book.

    Great book, but poor quality

    The book Science and Helath with Key to the Scriptures is a great book. However, this E-Book has numerous spelling issues. This is not the full version. Although I highly recommend the full version, this e-book is, unfortunately, not recommended.

    A Truly Creative Work

    For something to be truly creative it must move, touch, and inspire you each time you experience it, regardless of whether it's the 1000th time or the 10,000th. Much like Shakespeare's work has inspired literary buffs for centuries, and DaVinci's art has amazed the world, this book proves to offer new insights and inspiration each time through. It truly is a creative work and contains in it the metal for a lifetime journey and exploration.

    This Book Explains Spirituality and Our Relationship to God

    If you want to truly understand yourself spiritually and your relationship to God, reading this book will help! The book's premise is that we live in a mental/spiritual world, and it shows you how to apply spiritual principles (prayer) to every aspect of your daily life, not only to heal physical problems, but to live a happier life. For me, the book helped me learn to ratchet my thinking up a notch to see whatever life throws at me from a spiritual perspective. Change my thought about something and my experience changes. It has to be mental first. I had to read and re-read parts of it until I got the 'aha' message, but it was worth the probing. This metaphysical book has answers for a hungry heart. It's one of the most useful, practical books I've read.

    A ready reference for spiritual healing!

    I'm reading a lot of books on spirituality these days. Science and Health ranks right up there with the best of them. Its all about healing through prayer and its all based on the Bible. I like using the word index in the back to help me find ideas on things I want to pray about. AND, there is a companion web site for the book that is so cool! www.spirituality.com -- You can look up words or phrases and find quotes that are really helpful!
