The Christian Science textbook is here and loved.  Yet many are unaware it evolved through over four hundred editions from 1875 to 1910.

The Evolution of the Christian Science Textbook traces our textbook’s development from 1875 through to 1910.  The major revisions reveal how the pattern of evolution matches the original creation recorded in Genesis.  This is linked with major historical events in the progressive establishment of Christian Science, statements by Mrs. Eddy, and notices in the Journal and Sentinel.  The text of ten sections is augmented by fifteen appendices.

This document explains the divine genesis of Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures.



Mrs. Eddy comments on the seventh day, “Unfathomable Mind is expressed. … That is enough!” (Science and Health 520:3-7.)  The root meaning of the Hebrew word seven is enough. 

Revelation chapter 10 prefigures the delivery of divine Science to earth, and Mrs. Eddy enjoins, “Read this book from beginning to end.  Study it.  Ponder it.”  (S&H pp. 558-559.)
