What is a Christian Science Reading Room?
Our Reading Room is a space where everyone can gather, study, and pray. It is a bookstore where you can purchase literature and other items to support your spiritual study and understanding of God. Come by and learn more about Christian Science and Christian Science healing!
Here is a sample of some of our items:

- The weekly Christian Science Bible Lesson, which consists of citations from the Bible and Science and Health, in a variety of formats
- Bible translations and reference materials
- Children’s books, puzzles, and CD’s
- The Christian Science Monitor, Sentinel, Journal, and Herald magazines
- A lending library where books are available to borrow
- A subscription to JSH Online where you can browse over 130 years of articles on Christian Science, research specific topics, and read testimonies of healing. This archived collection is also available in print in our bound volume library.
