Since 2006, MP has been collecting letters that John sent to those around the world who asked him for CS help. More than 1,000 letters, written by John over nearly four decades, were provided to us by the recipients.
After organizing the best, editing out personal references and creating the graphic files for printing, the two-volume paperback set is now shipping.
We believe readers will conclude that this collection represents some of John’s finest work. The letters are substantive, insightful and inspiring. They reflect his total dedication to the writings of Mrs. Eddy and are replete with citations to her work.
The eBook version includes both volumes.

S&H 72:2-3. Mind’s communication is in terms of self-understanding. It speaks to, sees, hears, itself. It does not express itself through or to a medium. (See page 73:30-32 and margin) You have eyes because you see, or rather, because Mind sees. The symbol is present because God is present even though human sense will label this presence in terms
of its highest point of perception. This point changes as the clarity of Truth makes the symbol increasingly redundant. It does not improve the symbol but lets it fade out in the pres- ence of the idea behind it. But, make no mistake, the symbol is God-present however it may be interpreted, otherwise God, good, would be absent so far as you are concerned.
Mortal belief, called discord of any kind, cannot touch God-present in the form that you can appreciate. It claims to cast a shadow thereby giving the impression that something is wrong. But, the lesson here is in Ps. 115:2-9. The material body is just such an idol. There was never any power or presence resident in it, and only belief or mirage, says there was. Remember, the straight line and the circle may appear to touch but they never actually do, and you live as the sphere of good. In this sphere or circle only God is going on.
