Times Literary Supplement

I have read with interest the review of "Our New Religion," in your issue of November 28. The reviewer states, "It must be evident that there can be no possible ground of compromise between the author and the declared Christian Scientist, who will not be able to regard this book, written in a spirit not of attack, but of simple inquiry, save as the hardest blow his faith has yet sustained."

Not one word that the author has written will have the slightest effect on the faith of the Christian Scientist, for the Christian Scientist knows that the author is only writing about his own false concept of Christian Science and its teaching. The Christian Scientist regrets that one with such a reputation for what the world calls intelligence should have so misunderstood the subject. Truly Paul has said, "The natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned." Mrs. Eddy, through her spiritual discernment, was able to lay bare the so-called carnal mind, and she teaches how to overcome this carnal mind with the divine Mind or the Mind of Christ.
