There are lots of books out there that help their readers do everything from fix a refrigerator to fix a marriage. Some fall in the “for dummies” category and others in the “you have to have a degree in the subject before you can read it” category. There is one book, however, that can replace them all. What, you say? How can just one book explain refrigerators and marriages and everything else, at the same time?
Okay, so if you do a word search for refrigeration in the book I’m suggesting here, it’s true you won’t find anything. In fact, for the most part, you won’t find any “quick fixes” that way. But you will find permanent solutions for any and every problem. Yes, any and every problem.
The book is Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy. It’s not just a repair manual, it’s a restore manual and a redeem manual.
Here’s how it works: it explains God and His relationship with His creation; it makes plain how Jesus healed; it reveals the nature of Spirit and Soul; it illumines the Bible. And it teaches the reader how to do anything and everything through effective prayer.
There are countless times in my own life where problems ranging from a broken refrigerator to a broken marriage were resolved by digging deep into the ideas presented in Science and Health. Issues as disparate as child rearing and what kind of car to buy have been solved. Questions regarding what to do about unemployment or what to do in my garden were handled in much the same way.
All in all, thoughtfully reading, conscientiously applying, and practically living the scientific ideas found in Science and Health will repair anything. Find out for yourself!
