The writer hereof is not a Christian Scientist, neither...

Indianapolis (Ind.) Star

The writer hereof is not a Christian Scientist, neither is he a communicant of any orthodox institution, but having heard Clarence A. Buskirk's masterful and wholly dispassionate lecture on the teachings of Christian Science, and having also read a critic's attack upon the Christian Science tenets, he feels that a contrast of the work of the two men may not be amiss to Star readers who heard neither of these addresses.

In the first instance, one cannot help noting that Mr. Buskirk quoted continually from the New Testament, giving fully and explicitly the sayings and teachings of Jesus, showing conclusively that faith in God and belief in divine Love are entirely efficacious in healing the sick, in elevating and purifying the lives of all who accept the great Nazarene's philosophy. On the other hand, while the critic begins by making some unavoidable concessions to Christian Science, he invokes, not the Bible, in his efforts at confutation, but McClure's Magazine, which has not made an entirely unbiased report of the life and teachings of the Founder of Christian Science. The unprejudiced reader will be interested in comparing his "How it Works" with Mr. Buskirk's "Power of Prayer."
