I submit this testimony in heartfelt gratitude for the wonderful healings I have had in Christian Science. I would like to express special gratitude for Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy. This book so wonderfully elucidates the guiding rules for our path through life presented in the Holy Scriptures; in particular, it throws light on the way our Lord and Saviour, Christ Jesus, trod so that we might follow him.

Before Christian Science came again to me, I was a very sick man. I often suffered from heart trouble, as well as afflictions of the hip and of the prostate gland. After a kidney stone operation, I was in a very poor condition. Doctors could not help me. Then the words spoken to me when I was young by my father, a convinced Christian Scientist, came to mind: "You must not be afraid." Although I did not grasp their significance right away, these words stayed with me. So I turned to a Christian Science practitioner, whose support and kindly rebukes awakened me to my spiritual selfhood as a child of God. I am very grateful.

We read in the Bible (I John 4: 16): "And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him."
