I first heard of Christian Science in 1923, in Egypt, where my family had taken refuge after the revolution in Russia. My life style had become very restricted. My mother and I had found work, and we shared a small room in a pension. Fortunately, we both knew English. I had parted with all formal religion. But I held on hard to the Lord's Prayer, "the prayer of Soul," as Mrs. Eddy calls it in the textbook, Science and Health (p. 14): "The Lord's Prayer is the prayer of Soul, not of material sense."

I met an Englishman and his sister, who had been brought up in Christian Science. They introduced me to this teaching. The Christian Science textbook was lent to me, and I endeavored to understand it. There ensued a sharp struggle with intellectual pride.
