The Lectures

Florence, Italy (First Church).—Introducing Prof. Hermann S. Hering, a Christian Sciencelecturer, to his audience, C. Gilbert Rogers said in part:—

I should like to tell you how I became interested in Christian Science. In the year 1915 I witnessed in my own family what to me, then, was a wonderful instance of healing through Christian Science,—a case which modern surgery had failed to help, and for which the best London surgeons said nothing more could be done. I was then a member of the Church of England and honestly believed in and tried to live up to the teaching of the Bible so far as I then understood it. I was quite satisfied with the tenets and form of worship of that church. A copy of the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, was sent to me with the request that I should read it, and judge for myself as to the truth of what it taught. I first read, and then studied that book. It revealed to me the spiritual meaning of the Bible in a way that I had never seen it before; it gave me a true understanding of God, and of man's relation to Him. It showed me a God of love, and thus a God who does not punish. And it made clear to me that sin brings its own punishment. The Bible tells us that Jesus healed disease, cast out sin, and overcome death; and he said to his disciples, "He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also."
