It has come to my notice that in your issue of the Citizen of recent date, under the heading, "The Business of Life," in Letchworth news, there is the review of a book called "The Business Man of Syria." In the opening sentence of the review it is stated that the book is "well known in Christian Science circles," giving the impression that it is used by Christian Scientists for answers to such questions as: What about the immaculate conception? What about miracles? What about matter? What about life? Shall we live again? This, however, is quite incorrect, as the Christian Scientist turns only and always to the Bible, and to "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" and the other writings by Mary Baker Eddy, as well as to the other authorized literature of the Christian Science movement, because he finds all his answers to the above questions in these writings. Would you kindly publish these few lines to avoid any misapprehension on this subject? In conclusion, may I quote the following lines from "Miscellaneous Writings" by Mrs. Eddy (p. 252): "Christian Science is not only the acme of Science but the crown of Christianity.... It demonstrates the divine Principle, rules and practice of the great healer and master of metaphysics, Jesus of Nazareth. It spiritualizes religion and restores its lost element, namely, healing the sick. It consecrates and inspires the teacher and preacher; it equips the doctor with safe and sure medicine; it encourages and empowers the business man and secures the success of honesty."
