Preface



   This volume contains scintillations from press and
pulpit - utterances which epitomize the story of the
birth of Christian Science, in 1866, and its progress
during the ensuing thirty years.  Three quarters of a
century hence, when the children of to-day are the elders
of the twentieth century, it will be interesting to have
not only a record of the latter half of the nineteeth century,
but also a registry of the rise of the mercury in the glass
of the world's opinion.
   It will then be instructive to turn backward the
telescope of that advanced age, with its lenses of more
spiritual mentality, indicating the gain of intellectual
momentum, on the early footsteps of Christian Science
as planted in the pathway of this generation; to note
the impetous thereby given to Christianity; to con the
facts surrounding the cradle of this grand verity - that
the sick are healed and sinners saved, not by matter, but
by Mind; and to scan further the features of the vast
problem of eternal life, as expressed in the absolute
power of Truth and the actual bliss of man's existence
in Science.

   February, 1895
