How can I access Herald-Online?

Recognizing that the English text may hold less value for many Herald readers and that monthly credit card transactions may be challenging for many Herald subscribers, we are offering full Herald-Online access as part of every print subscription. In fact the only way a reader will be able to subscribe to the Herald-Online is by subscribing to the Herald in print. If you want to “go paperless,” we encourage you to subscribe to JSH-Online where you have full access to all of Herald-Online, as well as all the Journal and Sentinel, without having a print subscription.

The Mission of the Herald

In 1903, Mary Baker Eddy established The Herald of Christian Science. Its purpose: "to proclaim the universal activity and availability of Truth." The definition of "herald" as given in a dictionary, "forerunner—a messenger sent before to give notice of the approach of what is to follow," gives a special significance to the name Herald and moreover points to our obligation, the obligation of each one of us, to see that our Heralds fulfill their trust, a trust inseparable from the Christ and first announced by Jesus (Mark 16:15), "Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature."

Mary Sands Lee, Christian Science Sentinel, July 7, 1956
