Scientific Christian Mental Practice by Emma Curtis Hopkins

Emma Curtis Hopkins was an influential figure in the New Thought movement.  She was called “the teacher of teachers” as several of her students went on to create ministries such as Unity, Divine Science and Science of Mind to name a few.  Her aim in her classes and writings was always to help her students to penetrate through the veil of “things as they appear” to the heart of Reality.

Scientific Christian Mental Practice consists of 12 lessons, each building upon the other.  From “The Statement of Being,” “Denials of Science,” “Foundations of Faith” to “Rending the Veil” and “The Crown of Glory” you are on a journey of discovering Truth.
