I found out about Christian Science ten years ago through an acquaintance who gave me The Herald of Christian Science (German Edition) to read. A new heaven opened up for me. I had found no satisfaction in my former religion, so I let myself drift until I finally found the pure and living religion that I had envisioned as a child.

Like a person thirsting in the desert, I asked for more and more Heralds, until I received Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy. This book truly literally unlocked the Holy Scriptures, and I can now say with the Psalmist (Ps. 16:6): "The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places; yea, I have a goodly heritage." I can no longer imagine my life without Christian Science, which daily has such blessed effects.

After I had enthusiastically read many Heralds, without first paying much attention to the testimonies, I ran across a testimony of a healing of constipation. Then for the first time it was clear to me that if prayer and reliance on spiritual means for health had helped in that case, it could help me too. Thus, without hesitation, I threw away all material means and from that very hour I had no more complaints.
