Online Resources from ‘Independent Christian Scientists’

‘Independent Christian Scientists’ are people who sincerely found value in Christian Science and then felt a need to keep moving in some way that did not fit with the specific trajectory of the Christian Science Church. The wide variety of their writings indicate how broadly Christian Science has influenced thinkers, healers, and religious communities, especially the English-speaking world. There has always been tension within the Church between the need to conserve the integrity of Eddy’s vision and to provide creative space for its members to innovate, including alternative interpretations of the Bible and Eddy’s writings.
