A Christian Science Reading Room is a quiet place that provides the public with a dedicated place to learn for themselves about man’s inseparable, immutable relationship to God. 

Available here are Weekly Bible Lessons, reference materials, and periodicals, etc., which show how to heal any human problem through the application of the Science of the Christ.



What is it for?

A Christian Science Reading Room is a sanctuary where people can refresh themselves spiritually, through the study of, and through prayer deeply based in, the revelations of truth found in the Holy Bible and in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science.  These two books are our only “preachers.”



Who provides it?

This Reading Room, located at 22 East 44th Street is provided and maintained by Fifth Church of Christ, Scientist, NYC, a branch of The First Church of Christ, Scientist in Boston, Massachusetts.  This is a church, in the words of its Founder, “designed to commemorate the word and works of our Master, which should reinstate primitive Christianity and its lost element of healing.”
