  What is Christian Science?  
Christian Science is the explication of Truth, reducing to human apprehension and demonstration the infinite Principle, divine Love, God-manifested in the annihilation of sin, sickness, and death.
Christian Science is Christ Science, or Immanuel knowledge, and involves the ultimate of all reason, revelation and inspiration.

The Individual Christian Scientist
Volume 40 Jan. 2016 - Final Issue
  Doris Grekel
1 This is the final issue of "The Individual Christian Scientist" as Doris Grekel is no longer physically visible to us and has moved on to her next plane of existence.  She dedicated the last 40 years of her life to writing about Christian Science in this publication and also published a comprehensive biography on Mary Baker Eddy in a three volume set (see section 2 below for more details). 

One of the clearest definitions of body is to be found where Mrs. Eddy explains the first verse of the first chapter of Genesis: "In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. The infinite has no beginning. This word beginning is employed to signify the only, - that is, the eternal verity and unity of God and man, including the universe." (S&H 502:22-27) Looking in Webster's for a definition of "only" which Mrs. Eddy has in italics, it reads: "one plus lie" then refers to the word "ly," as the same as lie, meaning body, like in appearance, nature or manner; so the word "only" gives the meaning of the one plus body. Naturally, one being God, body would have to be like that one in manner and nature, therefore, body is one with God and exactly expresses God.

Mary Baker Eddy
Forever Leader
  Doris Grekel

Mary Baker Eddy
Forever Leader

O blessed daughter of Zion, I am with thee. And none shall take my words out of thy lips. Thou art my chosen, to bear my Truth to the nations, and I will not suffer another messenger to go before thee. . . . And I will lift thee up daughter of Zion. And I will make of thee a new nation for
thy praise.

In an early essay Mrs. Eddy said: "The church created, founded and erected on the rock against which the winds and waves prevail not, is the church triumphant, the indwelling temple of God." Mary Baker Eddy demonstrated this "indwelling temple of God" in her own life, explained it in Science and Health, and, to help her followers make this demonstration, she set forth rules in her Manual of The Mother's Church, "Mary Baker Eddy's Church" (Man. 102).

Mrs. Eddy's sojourn among mortals was devoted to wakening mankind to spiritual life; and the higher she lifted her voice, the louder did error scream lies about her and her blameless life. In one brief answer to the mountains of falsehoods she said: "Above all the fustian of either denying or asserting the personality or presence of Mary Baker Eddy, stands the eternal fact of Christian Science and the honest history of its Discoverer and Founder."

It is the author's hope that the honest history in these pages will help the earnest seeker for Truth to find and to follow the Forever Leader, and thus to "rejoice in the church triumphant."

Association Addresses - 1960 to 1963   Helen Spangler
    Helen Spangler - New Author
It is becoming well known that our thinking determines our experience. But when we are in need of help and healing, how to
we change how we think? This change comes when our understanding of Christian Science spiritualizes the inmost thoughts.
Through study and prayer we learn that we are each independently dependent on God for all things. He brings into our experience all the good that belongs to us. This spiritual enlightenment unfolds first in the heart of consciousness, and then objectifies itself in better health, greater supply, and happier relationships.

These four addresses by Helen Spangler take us beneath the surface of our thinking into the inner thoughts where we find
that infinite good is ours as we realize that God is the great Giver. Whether the good we are seeking is health, friendship, or supply, it unfolds first through a better understanding of God and our relationship to Him. It begins subjectively.

Helen Spangler is especially clear on demonstrating our needs by seeking them first in the inmost thoughts. She shows how
this inner self can be penetrated with spiritual understanding. On reading her addresses, it is obvious that she writes from understanding and not from theory.

Very little is known about Mrs. Spangler. That she was an outstanding teacher is obvious from reading her addresses. She
was married and had two daughters. A friend gave her Science and Health, and it has been said that once she opened the book
she never put it down. She had Christian Science class instruction from George Shaw Cook, and was a practitioner and teacher in Los Angeles, California, from the 1930s until 1964. Many articles by her were published in the Christian Science periodicals. She did extraordinary healing work. She once said she had seen everything healed but leprosy. Soon after that a leper came to be healed, and she healed him.

Each year Mrs. Spangler taught a class of thirty students and held a meeting of her association of students. She wrote an
original address to read on this special day. Only eight of her addresses were printed and distributed to her students. The first
four have been published in the book, Man's Relationship to God. In these last four addresses she continues to define with special insight her understanding of the subjective nature of being.

Mary Baker Eddy's Last Four Written Words - Analysis of
"God is My Life
  Fernand E. d'Humy
Fernand d'Humy was Research director for the Western Union Telegraph Company.  He was a physical scientist of international reputation.

He did not state he studied Christian Science or claimed to be associated with Christian Science.  He apparently knew nothing of the "Science" or “system” of Christian Science.  However his analysis is in line with the "Science" and "system" of Christian Science.

Fernand E. d'Humy provides a deep spiritual analysis of Mary Baker Eddy's last four written words, "God is my Life".

Everything about this last statement reveals deep meaning far beyond what anyone imagines until one studies the scientific discovery made by him which adds a complete new dimension to what was previously thought to be a simple statement.

You will be uplifted by careful study of his work.

Founder of American Red Cross - FREE PDF download   Clara Barton
Clara Barton - Christian Science
CLARA Barton is best known as the founder of the American Red Cross. Fifty years ago she was included in every American history book, and encyclopedias today describe her as a philanthropist, a humanitarian, a patriot, "a great American woman who devoted her life to the good of humanity."

Clara Barton was born in Oxford, Massachusetts the same year that Mary Baker was born in Bow, New Hampshire. In 1907, at 86 years of age, Miss Barton was publishing the Story of My Childhood. At that time some newspapers and magazines had been publishing lies and malicious attacks upon Mary Baker Eddy and Christian Science for over a year until the Discoverer and her discovery were on every tongue and daily press copy for all the papers.

Early in January of 1908 Viola Rodgers interviewed Miss Clara Barton asking the latter's opinion of the much discussed Leader [Mary Baker Eddy] and her religion. Miss Rodgers' story appeared as follows the next day in the New York American.        >>FREE download of talk<<

Three New Books for FREE PDF download   Margaret J. Jewson
  An advanced student who is a veteran of the "system" and "Science" of Christian Science blesses us with deep research on important topics.

1.  Elijah and Elisha - 69 pages
Each of the seven synonyms are investigated in detail as they relate to the demonstrated nature and activities of Elijah and Elisha.

2.  Let There Be Light - 139 pages
The majority of people, including those who love it (Bible) most, feel that many passages contradict each other, and they dislike a great deal of the Old Testament because of the atrocities and cruelty depicted in so many of the stories.

But recent research has brought to light some wonderful facts about the Bible.........

3.  The Fundamental Simplicity of the Divine Plan - 29 pages
The "seven" are first set out in the days of creation which open the Bible, and are crystalized by Mrs. Eddy in the answer to the question, "What is God?"  The "four" also permeate both (Bible and Science & Health) books, and perhaps are most easily recognized in the four of the Gospels, each of which presents the same story, but from different standpoints.                      

An overview of the "seven" and the "four".

Entire Message of Mary Baker Eddy Captured in Two Famous Paintings Drawn by Hand of God
"Daniel in the Lions' Den" Spiritual Interpretation of Paintings of Briton Riviére - 1915   David N. Baxter
"Daniel" by Briton Riviére - 1872 "Daniel's Answer to the King" by Briton Riviére - 1890
Daniel in the Lions Den by Briton Riviere 1872   Daniel's Answer to the King by Briton Riviere  1890
"A Little Voyage Amid the Symbols" by David N. Baxter, relating the lions to specific Bible verses, reveals the hidden symbols in the two famous paintings of "Daniel" (1872) and "Daniel's Answer to the King" (1890) by master artist Briton Riviére.  The artist did not realize what was accomplished until 47 years later when Bible scholar and advanced Christian Scientist, David N. Baxter, provided him a copy of his book in 1919, four years after publication, along with a letter of inquiry.  You will be surprised with the artist's answer.

Our eternal gratitude to for this valuable 46 minute recording contributed to the Institute.

Mary Baker Eddy Hymns, Bible verses, and other lyrics   Kenny Baker, honey-voiced tenor, CS Practitioner
Kenny Baker - Honey Voiced Singer 
Kenny Baker
Kenneth Laurence "Kenny" Baker was an American singer and actor who first gained notice as the featured singer on radio's The Jack Benny Program during the 1930s.  He appeared in seventeen film musicals and also Broadway productions.

He became a Christian Science practitioner and motivational speaker, and recorded a number of albums especially for inspiration from Bible verses and Mary Baker Eddy's "seven hymns" taken from "Poem's" one of the 17 books written by her.  One of these
"seven hymns" are sung each Sunday in Christian Science churches throughout the world.

There seems to be no better way to convey the "deeper spiritual insight" of Mary Baker Eddy in her "Poems" and the Bible verses than through Soul manifesting itself as world-renown vocalist, Kenny Baker.

A BIG THANK YOU to for their professional conversion from the original historic recordings by Kenny Baker.
