About Carl Gluck

Born on September 18, 1882, Carl Gluck first studied the Christian Science of Mary Baker Eddy in 1913 because he thought it might answer the question of what is right and wrong. Mary Baker Eddy (1821-1910) wrote Science and Health with Key the Scriptures {1875) and founded the Christian Science church in Boston. Then living in Oakland, California, Gluck had some health problems, as he later wrote in Autobiographical Reminiscences: “For some time I had been afflicted with a pain in the hip which caused me considerable suffering, and upon retiring this evening I could hardly walk up the stairs to my room. I did not know at that time that Christian Science was supposed to heal. I was only looking for the answer to my question, but while reading, the pain, which was almost constant, left me. It occurred to me at the time that reading these books must have had something to do with it, and I rose from my bed and walked around the room to see just what had happened. Much to my surprise, not a vestige of the pain was left.... I did not close my eyes that night, but continued to read”.... Gluck was so fascinated that he soon devoted all his time to studying the Bible and th writings of Mary Baker Eddy, including her church's Christian Science Quarterly Bible Lessons which are still published today. He also consulted other Christian Science and Bible students in! California, and in the following years some revelations and visions of spiritual truth began to come to him, and he described these in his first book. The Mediator {1924). Gluck saw three basic questions that he could help answer, questions that many people ask: "Where did I come from? Why am I here? Where am I going? “The answer to these questions is of vital, importance to the whole world before the brotherhood of man can be established and peace come on earth," he wrote. The mediator of the book's title is Christ Jesus, and Gluck believed the Bible is mainly His story and that the Christ appeared also in Moses and Solomon and others, including, figuratively. in His story of the prodigal son. The book also covers related subjects and even predicts, a quarter century before the event, Israel as a free nation. Gluck affirms the importance of marriage, another issue in the news today. Gluck sees marriage as crucial to spiritually perfection: "There must be perfect unity of a male and female before we can become members of the body of Christ.” By Dr. Dean W. Monahan
