"And his chains fell off"

From the February 1971 issue of The Christian Science Journal


Accounts of God's love and care and protection for mankind abound in the Bible. Each narrative has its own special value, but unless we look beyond the historical and moral signification, understand its deep spiritual import, and then apply this understanding to our daily needs, such a narrative falls short of its holy mission and, to the unillumined or unreceptive thought, is just another Bible story.
