My introduction to Christian Science...

My introduction to Christian Science came through a Sentinel given to me by a casual acquaintance. I read it thoroughly, and that evening I enjoyed the first peaceful rest I had known for some time. The following morning I went to a Christian Science Reading Room to purchase the textbook referred to in the various articles and testimonies in the Sentinel, namely Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy. It happened to be a legal holiday. The Reading Room opened much later than usual; so I had a lengthy wait.

I can still recall praying while I waited that this religion would not take me so far and then leave me comfortless as had other systems. Heretofore, a diligent medical, theological, and intellectual search for the answers to the world's miseries, and particularly to my own, had yielded nothing satisfying or practical.

I obtained a copy of the textbook, took it home, and read it round the clock until I finished it. It offered a logical and complete explanation of being. It dealt thoroughly with the complexities of human experience. And, most wonderful of all, it was in spiritual correlation with the Holy Bible, which I had early been taught to love. My prayer for enlightenment had been fully answered! Thus began for me the unfoldment of the Messianic revelation which has continued to grow ever more glorious.
