Do we analyze or deeply ponder our religious ideas? Or do we just repeat what we were told? The author shares how vital it is to really explore Christian Science for ourselves.

Does Christian Science really work? Is it reliable? Is it blind faith-cure? Or is it based on rules? The author explores the Science behind healing and shows how it is based on laws we can understand.
