Every week for generations, Christian Science Quarterly Bible Lessons have been delivering fresh insight and inspiration, enlarging people’s understanding of God, and bringing healing to every kind of troubling situation.

The Bible Lesson is comprised of citations from the Bible and correlative passages from Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy.

“Regular study of the Bible and Science and Health continues to open my eyes to a universal love, a divine Love, that embraces everyone.”

— Kay, Pelican Waters
