The Lectures

Introductions to Lectures

Mount Lebanon, Pennsylvania (First Church).

Lecturer: Mrs. Louise Knight Wheatley Cook; introduced by Mrs. Mary Elta N. Zellner, who said:—

About twenty years ago a dear relative, who was a tireless worker in a Protestant church, told me that Christian Scientists did not believe in the Bible. About two years later I became very discouraged about my physical condition. Electrical treatments, exercise, and many kinds of medicine had neither healed me nor brought improvement. My sister, who was studying Christian Science, had been quickly healed of the very ailment which was distressing me. This interested me very much, and the things she told me about Science sounded so logical and true that I felt I must know more about it. I went to church with her, and found that the entire service was based upon the King James Version of the Bible—the very same Bible which is used in Protestant churches throughout the world. I also learned about "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, which contains the spiritual interpretation of the Scriptures. Mrs. Eddy says of her discovery, Christian Science (Science and Health p. 126): "The Bible has been my only authority. I have had no other guide in 'the straight and narrow way' of Truth."
