"The Lord looseth the prisoners"
A Christian Science lecture was given in a large prison before an audience of approximately eight hundred men, who were spoken of as "exceedingly attentive and appreciative." The introduction to this lecture, and some excerpts from letters sent to the lecturer, are presented as being of general interest. The chairman of the Christian Science committee in charge of the services and the distribution of Christian Science literature at the prison, who has, in connection with this work, been making personal visits to the men for the past two years for the purpose of imparting some of the truths of Christian Science and ministering to the wants and welfare of all interested in Christian Science, in introducing the lecturer, spoke as follows:—
"Friends: When Christian Science was first called to my attention about fifteen years ago, I read the textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, in a very critical way, and then proceeded to mark a good many articles that did not appeal to me. After rereading a number of these articles carefully, I concluded that I had no foundation whatever for criticism against Christian Science.
