Richard Requarth is a recreation director in Arizona. He talked with us about his introduction to Christian Science. This article is condensed from our taped conversation.

This friend patiently answered Richard's questions and encouraged his investigation of Christian Science. After an especially dismal experience with drugs and a night's soul-searching, Richard decided to give Christian Science a try.
