The Lectures

A lecture on Christian Science was delivered by Jacob S. Shield at the Empire Theater, and Judge J. W. Norvell made the following introductory remarks:—

Less than fifty years ago Christian Science was discovered by Mrs. Eddy, one of the noblest and purest women that ever lived. She devoted her life to making plain the way, that all who will may partake of the "water of life freely." She was to a remarkable degree possessed of pure wisdom, and to her was revealed the spiritual meaning of the Scriptures. Her discovery and practice of Christian Science was but the demonstration of the teachings of the New Testament, and through "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" she has made available to all mankind the truth as taught and explained by Jesus of Nazareth. Christian Science has brought to suffering and sinning humanity that great spiritual law which the Master had in mind when he said, "Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free."
