For many years I sought an explanation of life and a logical understanding of the Bible. Having been brought up in a Protestant church, I was familiar with the Bible; but as the years passed, it became more and more a book of inexplicable contradictions to me. It was certainly very beautiful literature; but in poetry and prose it was full of wonderful promises, none of which ever came true in daily experience.

I had read many of the ancient teachings and philosophies, feeling convinced that there must be an answer to this confusion, for I would not believe that an intelligent creator, having made me an intelligent being, had launched me into a universe I was not meant to understand.

This was my state of mind when a dear friend told me of Christian Science. I quickly found from the study of the textbook by Mrs. Eddy, which I have indeed proved to be the key to the Scriptures, a complete and satisfying explanation of the Bible, an answer to the problem of the seeming existence of both good and evil, and, above all, an understanding of God as the only Life and the Mother and Father of all.
