   An earnest student writes to me: "Would it be asking
too much of you to explain more fully why you call Christian
Science the higher criticism?"
   I called Christian Science the higher criticism in my
dedicatory Message to The Mother Church, June 10,
1906, when I said, "This Science is a law of divine Mind,
. . . an ever-present help.  Its presence is felt, for it
acts and acts wisely, always unfolding the highway of
hope, faith, understanding."
   I now repeat another proof, namely, that Christian
Science is the higher criticism because it criticizes evil,
disease, and death - all that is unlike God, good - on a
Scriptural basis, and approves or disapproves according
to the word of God.  In the next edition of Science and
Health I shall refer to this.
