"UNDERSTANDEST THOU WHAT THOU READEST?"

The Christian Science text-book, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy, has many thousands of readers, but some evidently do not understand what they read or they would not rise from its perusal to criticize unkindly the book and its author. It is a serious thing to disparage a work which brings daily help and comfort to so many of its students, and one should ascertain beyond question that he understands it correctly before pronouncing judgment. One notable fact regarding the reception of this book is, that the large majority of its readers have so far grasped its meaning as to make Christian Science the rule of their thought and life.

The ranks of Christian Science contain numbers of cultured people, as well educated as can be found elsewhere, and as capable of detecting error in Mrs. Eddy's writings, if error there be, as are her critics.
