Often one searches far off for that which is close at hand. The Bible to me was a completely unknown book in my early years. I have always been a fervent reader in all areas, and indirectly, through Oriental philosophies, I started reading the Bible.

One day I walked by the edifice of the local Christian Science Society, on a street which I usually never take. A box with Christian Science literature was fastened to a windowsill. I had never heard of Christian Science, and I was unacquainted with the name Mary Baker Eddy. I took some periodicals home with me. The texts I read appeared very abstract, and though something appealed to me, the new language seemed at first difficult to understand.
