He wasn't alone. Charles Fillmore, founder of Christ Church Unity, Ernest Holmes, founder of Science of Mind Church, and Mary Baker Eddy, founder of Christian Science were all from the same time period and taught a similar message. With no TV in their day, and little radio, they all gave talks on a circuit to share their message. The truths they taught then are much the same as those taught today. No surprise really. Truths are. We recognize them now as they did then because they feel right. They bring clarity and peace and happiness.
