What is a Christian Science Reading Room?

A Christian Science Reading Room is an opportunity for spiritual study and growth. The Reading Room offers a library of Bible related publications for soulful retreat and rebuilding. Its quiet sanctuary is open to all visitors seeking spiritual answers to disquieted thought and proven methods for utilizing God’s laws.

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 as a window 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 written to better share how Christian Science is used in healing 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 publication that addresses its readership through their individual languages. The text is produced in thirteen different languages and 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 well balanced, global news daily.

Reading Rooms around the globe are set up 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.
