- (Dr. William H. Hornaday, Minister of the Founder's Church of Religious Science)
This is a true story although it reads like fiction. The records, kept by a devoted family, provide minute details of an extraordinary boy, born the last of nine sons, who grew up in a remote environment in the state of Maine and reached his final triumph across the continent in California where he became the founder of the United Church of Religious Science.
As a teenager he longed to know and understand God and the powers of his own mind. It was his destiny to find and synthesize the answers in an orderly way from the "kindergarten beginning" to the "graduate finish" of his mature years. Within these pages a reader can learn how the Science of Mind which he formulated came into being.
The book is filled with lively and amusing anecdotes, with recollections of friendships and pastimes, of formative years on the lecture platforms, of struggles against adverse odds, of love and marriage and loss, of spiritual conflict and growth and final triumph. But at heart it is the life story of a great soul who blended the natural and the supernatural into one gigantic spiritual science and won recognition and honors around the world.
