In a review of a book which appeared in the News, it was said that the book gives a history of fads in healing in this country, in which category Christian Science is included. I shall sincerely appreciate it if you will kindly permit me to state certain facts in regard to Christian Science which are pertinent and of interest in this relation.

According to Webster, a fad is "a custom, amusement, etc., followed for a time with exaggerated zeal." Even a brief glance at the proportions attained by the Christian Science movement will show that it is entirely inaccurate to consider Christian Science a fad. The first edition of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, appeared in 1875; in regard to the extensive sale of this book the Rev. Lyman P. Powell, Episcopal clergyman, in his book, "Mary Baker Eddy: a Life Size Portrait," says that "Science and Health became, next to the Bible, the 'best seller' among serious books."
