CONCORD is computer study software which provides tools for searching and studying the Bible, Mary Baker Eddy’s writings, and Christian Science Hymnals
Why do we need a new version?
One of the goals with this new version is to make it more accessible for everyone; wherever you are.
*The new version has improved capabilities for smartphones and tablets. You can access citation lists, manage your lists, and build new ones. Listening to hymns on your phone or tablet is easier than ever before. You can have this easy access with you all the time right in your pocket.
*Searches have been refined and simplified. There are new search options: “Stemming” and “Range Search” to aid you in focusing your search.
*The new CONCORD contains the newest Hymnal version too.
*Cross referencing scriptural quotations in Science and Health and the Bible have been made more obvious.
Is it hard to learn the new tools?
There is a new website that has instructive videos and brief articles to tell you how to use the different aspects of the program. You can access the free trial at:

Mary Baker Eddy says the Christian Science Bible Lesson is “…a lesson on which the prosperity of Christian Science largely depends.” Church Manual Art III, Sect. 1 (31:4)
While the bylaw is directed toward Readers in our churches, it’s also important for every student of Christian Science to thoroughly understand and effectively read—audibly and silently—our Bible Lessons.
This unique seminar will benefit any student of Christian Science
Readers (former, current and future), the general membership, regular church attendees,
and senior Sunday School students.
You’ll receive tools that will help you:
deepen your scholarly understanding
elevate scholarly understanding to heartfelt understanding
gain the freedom to express the spirit of the word with heartfelt fervor
You’ll also learn about the reading standards set by Mary Baker Eddy and the Holy Bible, and get ideas about how our Bible Lessons can help us become better healers and ensure the prosperity of our church.
Some of the more serious barriers that animal magnetism attempts to impose on our understanding of God’s Word, and on our reading from our platforms.
The standards of effective reading—straight from the Hoy Bible and from our Leader, Mary Baker Eddy.
How to set God’s word free from the pages on which it was written.
Both silent and oral readers will receive expressive reading “Tools for Understanding” that will help us:
Improve a scholarly understanding of the text, and elevate that scholarly understanding to a more spiritual dimension of heartfelt understanding of God’s word.
Identify clues writers have left—clues that reveal important insights into God’s inspiration.
Pay special attention to the nuances created by the writers choice of words and the structure of their writing.
Gain a clearer and deeper understanding of the heart and soul of the writer’s work.
We’ll also receive expressive reading “Tools for Delivery” that will help us:
Use all our God-given communication tools to the best of our abilities.
Deliver inspired messages with the same depth of feeling and richness of expression with which the writer might have actually spoken the words.
Eliminate self-consciousness and learn how to “get yourself out of the way.”
