Out of gratitude for the benefits I have received from...

Out of gratitude for the benefits I have received from Christian Science, I should like to give the following testimony. For over ten years I was a confirmed invalid, due to an internal complaint. Ultimately, on the advice of a medical specialist, I underwent an operation, which seemed to give me relief for a while. This was only temporary, however, and I was told to prepare for a second operation.

At this stage, a friend suggested that I should get a book called "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy. I had never heard of Christian Science before, but felt sure that the book would be interesting reading. I therefore borrowed it from the Christian Science Reading Room in this city, to take it with me into the country, where I was going the next day in the hope of gaining strength for the operation. I started reading immediately, and had not read many pages before a great light and joy dawned upon my consciousness. Not for a moment did I doubt that at last I had got hold of the truth about God and man. All that had before seemed dark, contradictory, and confusing in the Bible became clear. I only desired to read more and more of this wonderful book.
