CHRISTIAN SCIENCE IS BRINGING HEAVEN TO EARTH

[About seven years ago Mr. Lent wrote a book entitled "Being Done Good," and included in it a chapter in which he ridiculed Christian Science. Since that time he, like many others, has found that he was mistaken in his estimate of the value of this teaching, and it is his intention, we are informed, to insert in the remainder of the present edition of his book the following explanation and correction.—Editor.]

Seven years ago I "tried" Christian Science for one whole month. I could then see it was a fraud (everybody said so), and I ridiculed it in a chapter in this book, as I deemed it my duty to do. Two years ago, after wandering five years more and eight years altogether in the desert of matter, searching for the truth that would make me free, I was turned back to Christian Science by a woman with a copy of Science and Health and a Bible. Up to that time I had engaged upward of thirty-five doctors and material healers, to say nothing of innumerable "cures," in my quest. When this woman reached out her helping hand I had dwelt in a far country about long enough, and of husks I had eaten to the point of yearning for my Father's house. For the past two years I have been keeping to the straight and narrow way which leads to the heights in Christian Science, and I have demonstrated much over the claims of ill health,—enough to know that Mary Baker Eddy has established a church that will raise up a race of prophets and poets of the true order, immune to the fears of these days, and bring to this earth a full realization of the prayer, "Thy kingdom come."
