Christian Science Sentinel

Official weekly publication of the Church of Christ, Scientist through the Christian Science Publishing Society, founded in 1883 by Mary Baker Eddy. Written for a wider audience than Christian Scientists only, as opposed to the Christian Science Journal, it includes articles written from metaphysical angle of Christian Science, with editorials, church news items and testimonies of healing. 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.
