This landmark work is a trustworthy and convenient guide to distinctive LDS doctrines. It comes at a time when it is vital for us to clearly understand the principal teachings of our Church so we can share knowledge with each other and with persons not of our faith.
Entries on nearly four hundred topics range from “Adamic Language” to “Elect of God” to “Saviors on Mount Zion” to “War in Heaven”—all written in a conversational tone and with a cordial and inviting spirit. It is the most comprehensive and up-to-date one-volume reference work on LDS beliefs produced in many years.
As President Boyd K. Packer has taught, “True doctrine, understood, changes attitudes and behavior.” This book will change our lives and enrich our gospel conversations.
