From the series Discovering Infinity
The book presents a collection of 26 Bible lessons -- one per week for half a year -- each one fully printed for about 45 minutes of reading. The lessons were designed as Lesson-Sermons to be read Christian Science churches during the Sunday church services and during the week, for individual study.
The Bible lessons presented here comprise the historic first set, produced in 1898. The biblical texts are interspersed throughout the lessons with corresponding brief elements from Mary Baker Eddy's book, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures. While this book is widely referred to as the textbook on Christian Science, it is also a part of a much larger pedagogical structure that Mary Baker Eddy had created for discovery, and for scientific and spiritual development in Divine Science.
In this special edition both textbook and the pedagogical are deeply interlinked with the Bible lesson presentation. The topics for the Bible lesson are themselves a part of that pedagogical structure for Divine Science.
The historic lessons, with the topics established by Mary Baker Eddy, are presented in this book as an example of the Bible Lessons in the Divine-Science context and are therefore uniquely formatted for this purpose. They are also combined with an extensive scientific overview of what the pedagogical structure encompasses that both the textbook and the Bible lessons are a part of.
The purpose of this presentation is to take the historic sample lessons, which came from a rich period in history, and move them beyond their specific role as a one-time Lesson-Sermon into the wider sphere of scientific exploration in universal Divine Science.
The book is Volume 3C of the research series, Discovering Infinity.
