The Christian Science Monitor
No one realizes more keenly than the student of Christian Science what a loss the English speaking portions of the world had suffered from the fact that the greatest treasure house of drama, poetry, prose, and spiritual teaching in the language, or in any language, that is, the Old Testament, had become almost a sealed book, owing to the lack of that true understanding which conveys to the reader its vitality and power.
Take, for instance, the story of the shunammite, that "great woman" who entertained the prophet Elisha. With unerring art, the writer gives a perfect little picture of the circumstances, the surroundings, of the courtesy and hospitality shown to the man of God. In return, the woman's intense longing for a son is gratified, and the imagination is left to fill in the sketch of the time which elapses till the boy is old enough to go with his father to help in the harvest. Then the tragedy opens. The child suddenly cries, "My head, my head," and falls down. He is carried to his mother and lies on her lap till noon, and then dies. No Greek tragedy ever moved with greater dignity or pathos than does this simple tale as it tells of the mother's bearing under this blow. She takes the child and lays him on the prophet's bed, and then, commanding the servants to saddle the ass, she sets forth to find the man of God.
