My introduction to Christian Science...

My introduction to Christian Science took place in a German prisoner of war camp in Eichstätt, Bavaria. There, the unnatural living conditions and enforced idleness soon brought to the forefront many faults of character, and I became a chronic neurasthenic. My state of mind was indescribable, and although I felt that religion might contain some comfort for me, I could find no real answer to my problems until that fortunate day when I was shown the way of right thinking as taught by the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, Mary Baker Eddy, in her textbook, Science and Health.

What an awakening that was! I was relieved straightway from a state of mind in which suicide seemed to be the only way out of my depression, and I learned that I did not have to escape from a prison camp to find freedom; instead, I had to break down the solid-seeming barriers of mortal mind with its attendant selfishness and to prove, as Mrs. Eddy says in Science and Health (p. 258), "Man is more than a material form with a mind inside, which must escape from its environments in order to be immortal."
