Baker Eddy” provides a list of all the marginal headings that occur within the
Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by
Mary Baker Eddy. If you want to know what Mary Baker Eddy was thinking on a
certain subject, all you need to do is, ask. You have more than 1,700 prepared
questions to choose from.
The marginal headings are a type of paragraph headings within the pages. They
describe what a certain paragraph is focused on. In earlier editions of the
textbook, various types of indexes of the marginal headings were appended to the
textbook. In modern editions, probably after 1932, the marginal headings were no
longer indexed. In some cases, an index of words was added, as a type of
concordance. However, in most cases a single word is insufficient to describe a
specific thought or subject. The subheadings, however, are ideally suited to
illustrate the point that Mary Baker Eddy is making in a paragraph or groups of
I, personally, find the subheadings fascinating, and highly useful as a quick
reference for finding Mary Baker Eddy’s answers to specific subjects.
In preparing the index, I dropped the convention to list the headings
alphabetically sorted. I simply list them in the sequence in which they appear
in the textbook, prefixed with the chapter numbers and page numbers.
In addition, I have also created an index of the headers of the testimonies of
healing in the chapter “Fruitage” (of the textbook).
