What is a Christian Science Reading Room?

Christian Science Reading Rooms are inviting places to explore spiritual answers to life’s many questions. Each Reading Room is both a bookstore and a place for prayer and study, where everyone is welcome.  Bible study and other meetings also take place at reading rooms from time to time. Tour this website and find a Reading Room near you. You will be able to purchase or read featured publications including the Christian Science Bible Lesson. You’ll also be able to explore different Bible translations, commentaries and use Concord, an on-line search tool for the Bible, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures and other writings by Mary Baker Eddy.

If you are interested in what a Reading Room has to offer but cannot make it in person, you can take advantage of this Virtual Reading Room. Take time to explore a Christian Science Perspective article, a daily feature of The Christian Science Monitor. You can also listen to several programs on the CSPS Internet Radio player including the Daily LiftSentinel Watch, a weekly podcast, or Teen Connect.  From time to time there will be additional Poetry and Podcasts posted.
