I send this testimony in the hope that it will cause others to look into Christian Science and to be benefited by it as I have been, and as a token of gratitude for all the help received by my family and me.

About six years ago, shortly after a shower, while playing with my children on the lawn, I slipped and severely wrenched my back. Thinking the strain would disappear in a day or two, I paid no attention to it; but instead of getting better it grew worse, and I was thinking of calling a doctor. As I was leaving the house, however, my wife, who had been studying Christian Science for several years, asked me if I wanted her to call up a practitioner and obtain help for me. I hesitated, as I could not see how Christian Science would do me any good, but on considering that it had proved successful with my wife and other members of the family, although I doubted that it would benefit me, I gave her permission to telephone for help. I went on with my business, and during the afternoon I suddenly realized that I could bend over without any pain. This seemed very wonderful to me. When I returned home, my wife told me she had talked to the practitioner, and it was then I learned that I had been instantaneously healed. This healing created in me a desire to learn how it occurred, so I applied myself to the study of the Bible and to the careful reading of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" and other works of Mary Baker Eddy.
