THE LECTURES

Judge Edward de Graffenreid, associate judge of the supreme court of Alabama, in introducing William R. Rathvon, who lectured on Christian Science, spoke in part as follows:—

The most valuable collection of books with which we have acquaintance is the Bible, for upon its doctrines rests much that is best in the thought, in the laws, and in the civilization of the age; and the most valuable part of the Bible is the New Testament, for through it all mankind is brought within the covenant made by the Almighty with Abraham. One of the contributors to the New Testament had the right to lay claim to more than ordinary literary distinction, since the book of Luke is the most beautiful book in the world. Its author was a physician and the amanuensis of St. Paul, and he was in all probability the author of the Acts of the Apostles. His works are filled with both divine and human philosophy.
