About twenty years ago, during a period when disorders in body and depression in business made me ponder the question of old, "Is there no balm in Gilead?" I came as a weary pilgrim to the Christian Science church, and that church lovingly took me in. During the intervening years, active affiliation with the Christian Science church and the daily study of the Bible and the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, have brought me out of the bondage of fear, lack, and ill health, and ushered me into a promised land—a place of right thinking—with positive signs or proofs of wholeness, happiness, and success following.

Is it any wonder that I am profoundly grateful because in time of tribulation I pondered the spiritual interpretation of the Scriptures as expounded by Mrs. Eddy in Science and Health? In this textbook I found a practical doctrine of redemption, salvation, and healing, based upon a knowable God, a God at hand, who answers the prayers of the righteous. I found the identical Christianity taught and practiced by Christ Jesus, the Christianity of "the glorious liberty of the children of God" as preached by Paul to the Romans. Because it reinstated primitive Christianity by healing the sick and restored the spiritual import of the Scriptures, I accepted it.
