I did not come to Christian Science for physical healing

I did not come to Christian Science for physical healing. I had been an earnest searcher for truth in religion and philosophy, but had found no abiding satisfaction therein. While living in New York city I was invited to attend a lecture on Christian Science, and to my great surprise I found there in one hour that for which I had been searching for years. The speaker's analysis of so-called material science and his convincing statements as to the unsubstantial nature of matter met my questions, healed my troubled thought, and made clear to me that in reality there is no real material science.

Could it be possible, I thought, that in one evening I had found the chart of life? I was sadly in need of it, so I purchased a copy of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" and began to read. I was not disappointed. I found in this book, not long arguments based on material or semi-material premises, but a complete and demonstrable statement of God and of man's relationship to Him. Hope and expectation filled my heart when I began to see that Truth is revealed in Christian Science, and that "Truth is God's remedy for error of every kind" (Science and Health, pp. 142, 143). In the years that have elapsed since then, I have had many opportunities to prove for myself its healing efficacy, and have found great joy and gratitude in helping others to do the same.
