"The prayer that reforms the sinner and heals the sick is an absolute faith that all things are possible to God, — a spiritual understanding of Him, an unselfed love."  So reads the first line of the first chapter of Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, p 1.  The Bible and Science and Health are the textbooks of Christian Science.  To learn more, please visit our page: What is Christian Science?
