My reason for beginning the study of Christian Science was a deep desire for an understanding of God. The church of my fathers, which I still reverence and honor, had failed to answer satisfactorily my quest for a demonstrable religion.

None of these systems answered the inescapable questions or had, for me, lasting value.

When in a discussion of these questions with friends, I was referred to the textbook of Christian Science, Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy, my attention was especially directed to her reply beginning on page 468 to the question, "What is Life?" It says in part, "Life is divine Mind." The following Sunday found me in attendance at a Christian Science church service.
