Christian Science Journal

The Christian Science Journal is an official monthly publication of the Church of Christ, Scientist through the Christian Science Publishing Society, founded in 1883 by Mary Baker Eddy. Written chiefly for Christian Scientists, as opposed to the Christian Science Sentinel and Christian Science Herald, it includes articles written from metaphysical angle of Christian Science, with editorials, church news items, testimonies of healing, and listings of Christian Science churches, practitioners, nurses, and Committees on Publication. The magazine saw an interval of controversy when in 1992 its editors resigned en masse to protest the church's publication of the book The Destiny of The Mother Church by Bliss Knapp. In subsequent years it changed its style somewhat to accommodate a greater openness toward various forms of New Age thought, regarded as a useful new liberalism by some members and alarming others as a compromise of basic Christian Science teachings.
