A description of each of the many physical ailments I have seen cured through Christian Science, and the other problems solved, would fill a book.

When I was a preteen, an automobile door was shut on my hand, crushing the fingers. My mother telephoned a Christian Science practitioner to pray for me. The practitioner talked to me for a few minutes—I don't remember exactly what she said. Then she asked me to read "the scientific statement of being" in Science and Health. I did, several times, and the pain stopped. Soon I had normal use of the hand. But several weeks later one finger still remained curled and would not straighten as the others. I had not noticed this before. My grandfather, a practicing Christian Scientist, prayed for me. Soon the finger was straight, and this healing has been permanent.

Several years ago, while preparing for a trip to England with my wife, I became very nervous. My fingertips and lips were very sensitive, and a severe rash appeared all over my body. At first I was very discouraged, as we had been looking forward to this trip. But as things were, I could not go.
