What is a Christian Science Reading Room?
A Christian Science Reading Room is a spiritual resource center for the community to pursue study and growth. This sanctuary is open to all visitors seeking spiritual answers and proven methods for utilizing God’s laws. It offers a library of Bible related publications for soulful retreat and rebuilding.
Our Christian Science Reading Rooms are quiet places for everyone to pursue study and spiritual inspiration. We offer Bibles, concordances, and reference materials as well as various publications from the Christian Science Publishing Society. Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy is also available for study or purchase. Science and Health is the textbook of Christian Science and offers spiritual insight into the Bible. A Weekly Bible Lesson is offered utilizing both Science and Health and the Bible as inspirational text to raise understanding of Bible principles and their healing effect on daily life.
The Reading Room offers publications for people of all ages. The Christian Science Journal and Christian Science Sentinel are periodicals sharing how Christian Science is used in healing for all types of everyday life events. Documented spiritual healing is shared by our global community throughout the pages of both the Sentinel and Journal.
The Herald of Christian Science is a periodical about Christian Science and its daily applications that is produced in 13 different languages. Each issue also offers testimonials from those using the inspired word of the Bible in meeting everyday needs.
The Christian Science Monitor is our Pulitzer-Prize-winning international newspaper. Professional journalists from around the world recognize the Monitor as a balanced, global news daily.
Reading Rooms around the globe are available to answer questions on Christian Science and its utility in addressing every need with a spiritual perspective. There are several Reading Rooms in the Austin metro area. Please come by and visit us. We look forward to seeing you.
