Our Leader's Tribute to the Bible

A letter in this article was later republished in The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany: My. 295:8-20

In these days of Bible criticism—higher and lower—it is well that there should be at least one to speak whose estimate of the Book of books is based upon actual demonstration of the truths found therein.

Christian Scientists do not need to be told what their Leader thinks of the Bible—they find that opinion emphatically expressed in all her works; but the following tribute to the Bible, brought out by Mr. Wessels' gift of an interesting specimen of the Martin Luther Bible, will be none the less appreciated by them for its inspiring spirituality.

To those who are lovers of the Bible but not Christian Scientists, these words of our Leader will reveal a phase of Mrs. Eddy's character and thought which cannot fail to impress strongly upon them the sincerity of her purpose and the richness of her achievement.
