Michael Paulson of the Boston Globe has a piece here on Christian Scientists trying to stabilize their denomination after years (decades, one might say) of declining membership and costly media ventures. But the article doesn’t get into why membership is dropping; some scholars say that that appeal Christian Science, with its emphasis on spiritual healing, has been elbowed out by modern medicine. I would have liked to hear the Christian Scientists respond to that.
