I shall be obliged if you will allow me space to reply to an archdeacon's letter in your issue of February 24.

The archdeacon has been correctly informed "that there are several people in a district not far from Bunbury who profess to believe in ... Christian Science;" but the archdeacon is quite wrong in stating that just as the Mohammedans have the Koran for their Bible, the Bible of the Christian Scientists is "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy. The Bible used in all Christian Science services is the King James Version, and in her discovery and founding of Christian Science, Mrs. Eddy informs us in the Preface to her book that "the Bible was her sole teacher" (p. viii). The archdeacon is right in calling Science and Health a "most extraordinary book." It is so extraordinary that the reading of it has healed many people of sickness and sin, and the study of it, in conjunction with the Bible, keeps them well and happy.

We'd love to hear from you!
