Reading Room News…

The Christian Science Reading Room in Adelaide carries all products available for sale through the Christian Science Publishing Society.  Just this week we have received stock of a new Parallel Bible.

The Complete Evangelical Parallel Bible  has 4 side by side translations – very useful for study.   “Readers curious about how different translations render their favourite verses will delight in this volume.  The same set of verses for all four translations is located on facing pages – two translations to a page – making text comparison as easy as opening the book.”

King James Version – a favourite of many readers for over four centuries;

New King James Version – a completely updated translation that is faithful to the accuracy and beauty of the KJV, using contemporary and readable language;

New International Version  – Scholarly accuracy and easy readability combine to help readers understand and apply the intended meaning of the biblical text;

New International Version – A more consistent rendering of ancient terms into their modern English equivalents brings clarity, along with marginal notes that explain word choices.

It retails for $90.45.

(We also still have a few copies of the previous Parallel Bible which has 4 other translations side by side.)


Also in stock is the new iteration of the ‘Jesus’ Healings’ series from the 1990s.  Updated and compiled into one volume “Stories of Healing – Jesus and his followers.” is written to be accessible for 8 to 12 year olds.  It retells each of Jesus’ and his followers healings recounted in the Bible. It also contains a wealth of historical information, definitions, and insights into Jesus’ ministry.  A special section containing recent healings, right up to the present, attests to the vitality, relevance, and living legacy of Christ-healing here and now.

Maps, glossaries, a bibliography, and an index  contribute to the book’s utility and versatility.  It is filled with beautiful, historically informed illustrations.


Beautifully presented, this would be a very useful resource for a child’s developing healing practice.

Retails at $59.95
