Dundee (Scot.) Courier

That Christian Science should appear an absurdity to people who do not understand its teachings need cause no surprise; the discoveries of natural science met at first with equal derision.

Christian Science is no new religion; it is an earnest attempt to put into daily practice the teachings of the Saviour. It maintains that what was the will of God in the apostolic age must still be His will; that if an understanding of the truth could free men from sin and illness nineteen hundred years ago, it can do so today, and it points out that if faith has ceased to move mountains of trouble it is not because God's nature or God's methods have changed, but because there is something lacking in the faith. Christian Science is a particularly vigorous form of Protestantism, full of energy, love, and good works. Mrs. Eddy's teachings are drawing together men widely divided by nationality, class, and education, freeing them from the bondage of fashion, prejudice, poverty, sickness, and sin, and showing plainly that the brotherhood of man can only be founded on the recognition of the fatherhood of God.

It is universally admitted that drink and impurity are the cause of most of the disease in the country, that worry, fear, and disappointment are accountable for much bodily suffering. Christian Science declares that in order to improve our health we must begin by improving our thoughts, and the Christian Science text-book, Science and Health, explains the Bible method whereby this may be accomplished.
