A Reason for the Faith

Expressed in a Friendly Letter.

Dear M.:—The circumstances under which your letter has placed me render it fitting for me to give you and yours the reasons for my stand.

For five years I bitterly opposed Christian Science, would not investigate it, said it was the greatest of modern delusions, and would lose my temper when it was broached to me. Finally, I was led to investigate it that I might be posted on a matter of such general comment.

I approached the subject, therefore, in a very antagonistic frame of mind, and in a spirit of criticism. That I have capitulated, is a self-evident fact: there is something in it. Now to show you and your parents that I am not foolish in this matter, that there is logic and reason for my posstion, I ask your patient perusal of the following very much condensed exposition of what Christian Science is, according to my understanding.
