Many readers feel this is John’s most remarkable writing. This presents a distillation and synthesis of the ideas included in John’s many Association addresses and other writings. One theme of the book is that the study of Christian Science can only be perceived from a totally new framework of perception as Science and Health says, “The divine Principle of the universe must interpret the universe.” (272:28-29)
New paperback edition. 347 pages plus 19 page index with nearly 700 entries (new to this edition). Available without index as an eBook.
Dear Mr. Hargreaves,
A few months ago, I was given your book, The Christian Science Revolution in Thought, by a friend who said she had known you when she lived in London.
My reason for writing to you is to try to express my great gratitude for the book. After a lifetime of being in Christian Science, I became Journal-listed a year ago. This has caused me to experience kinds of cases and situations quite different from what I had known before. My friend knew of my interest in your writing and supplied the book hitherto unknown to me.
My class instruction in California in 1962 was indeed thorough and satisfying, and I am grateful that our Association is still active. Yet, when I received your book, this solid work on Christian Science so extended my grasp of Mrs. Eddy’s writings and Jesus’ teachings that it appeared to be a wonderful answer to many new questions.
The book has helped me to see more clearly than before that Christian Science is the Christ, Truth, and my practice has become more effective and the healings appear to be quicker and without so much process.
As we know, a Christian Science treatment goes on being effective and active forever, accomplishing the purpose for which it is given. The care you took to put your understanding and examples in writing is continuing to bear fruit in the substantial health, happiness and understanding for me and for those who call on me. For this, I am profoundly grateful, and I thank you.
Sincerely and cordially,
