The courtesy of your columns will be appreciated to comment on a book, mentioned in the Patriot of June 1, written by a well-known and distinguished English (Oxford) educationist, on the subject of Christian Science.

The professor leaves no doubt in the mind of the reader that he is not only satirical but distinctly unfriendly towards his chosen topic. We read that he finds in it bad logic, bad theology, disordered psychology, poor philosophy, lack of science, and little Christianity. The truth about Christian Science is that it is a practical, demonstrable religion, bringing into the daily experiences of men and women of every walk in life, the reality and joy of universal harmony. It is the law of God---the law of good, made practical in daily living; its fruits are seen in the lives of the thousands who have been healed of disease after all human methods had failed, and in those regenerated from the depths of ignominy and sin and who were without a hope in the world. On one occasion, when asked whence so many Christian Scientists came, one who had, as he said, stood and looked into an open grave for months after years of suffering, answered, "Many of us came from our graves." Then he added, "Whether you are intelligent or ignorant, if you can turn to that agency which restored you to health, happiness, and usefulness, if you have the wisdom of an infant, you will want to know what it is that has wrought this stupendous transformation. Many of the people who come into Christian Science come because they have been lifted out of a hell of misery."

Christian Science is divine metaphysics. It is the religion of Life, Truth, and Love---God; and it is not intricate to those hungering and thirsting after righteousness.
