Preview — Articles of Faith by James E. The Articles of Faith: Inwhen the First Presidency of the LDS Church asked Talmage to produce a work of theology that could be used in church schools, Talmage decided to use Smith’s Articles of Faith as an outline of his work.
He first delivered the material that he would organize into a book in a series of lectures delivered in at Latter-day Saints’ University in Salt Lake City, Utah, which Talmage was the president of at the time.
First published inTalmage’s work is composed of 24 chapters. The first edition was published by the LDS Church, and has gone through over 50 English-language editions. It has also been translated and published in 13 other languages. The book continues to be published today by Deseret Book, a publishing company owned by the church. For many years, Articles of Faith and Jesus the Christ were among the few non-scriptural works that full-time LDS Church missionaries were asked to study Paperbackpages.

I bought a copy of this book when I was about seven years old. I bought it because I had been learning about the Articles of Faith in church and thought that the book would be like my Sunday School lessons. I only made through about page four, and still have some sections highlighted very crookedly because they were all I could understand as a child.
It took me about 16 years to actually read the book, but I am glad I did. Dealings with ignorant people are my greatest pet peeve.
There have been many occasions where people have judged me by my outward appearance.
The Articles of Faith
They take one look at the wheelchair, and automatically assume that I am mentally challenged. It really bothers me when people make any decision based on their narrow experiences. Likewise, it bothers ajmes to have my religion scrutinized by ignorant on-lookers. This book contains critical ttalmage of the Thirteen Articles tapmage Faith which contain the basic fun Dealings with ignorant people are my greatest pet peeve.
This book contains critical analysis of the Thirteen Articles of Faith which contain the basic fundamental principles of the true and living Gospel. I belong to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and I loved this book because it caused me to explore my doctrinal beliefs, using Biblical references to fairh many basic Mormon doctrines. Reading this articulate treasure is a must for anyone interested in delving into all of the scriptures.
If there is anything virtuous, lovely, or of good report or praiseworthy, we seek after these things. The above 13 articles are a concise way of summarizing the basic Mormon faith. I particularly enjoyed the chapters discussing the 10th article concerning the literal gathering of Israel and the 8th article concerning the Book of Mormon.
It discusses at length each line in each article with doctrinal analysis and commentary. Amazingly informative, intuitive, easy to understand and digest, but also very penetrating. Outlines at length with amazing understanding and detail most of the basic and many of the deep doctrines of the LDS faith.
Feb 10, Lindsay rated it did not like it. This is a book that details the core beliefs jxmes the LDS church. It is complete heresy and couldn’t be further from the Christian faith. One of the teachings that readers should take particular notice of is the famous, “As man is now, God once was and as God is now, man may become. It is NOT the Christian gospel, which teaches we are saved through grace alone by faith alone in Jesus Christ’s finished work on the cross.
The Mormon doctrine claims that you EARN your way into one of the three levels of heaven, and the top level is then broken up into three more levels. The highest level of the top level is called the Church of the Firstborn, and only the most righteous and obedient Mormons earn this level of exaltation.
Additionally, women cannot reach this jamss level unless they are married Don’t let the smooth speech and loving tones of this religion lull you into jakes it is anything but a cult.

This is very difficult to do, but the Latter-Day Saints have repeatedly done this in practice witness the innumerable stories of the pioneers or of the faithful church members who stopped the practice of plural families.
In the recent chapters, I was reminded of the universality of the FIRST resurrection, specifically that those who have not known the truth but who lived good lives are brought up along aritcles those who faigh able to receive and abide by the talmge of the Lord.
The First resurrection is anything but an exclusive club for the elitely righteous. Oct 17, Wyatt rated it it was amazing. My personnel response on this book is it is very interesting to read if you are into the Christian Faith of Jesus.
This book merely describes the Articles and a brief outlook on some of the faith values on Jesus Christ. They are Personnel Doctrines of the faith of Jesus. I honestly liked reading the Articles Of Aarticles. This article is about the Principles of some faith values of Jesus Christ and the lord.

In the creeds were written by Joseph smith. In my own opinion I think that young teens or even young adults could read this but anyone that’s not in their teens years might not understand the content of this book. I am again amazed at the knowledge of this man. He is a deep thinker and for the most part, with careful reading and help from a study group, you can follow him.
There are a few sections where the years since its writing show their age, but it holds up incredibly well. This is not for the faint of heart, but like most things that require txlmage, the reward is great.

It basically just breaks down all the 13 Articles of Faith with elaborate explanations and scripture references on basically each sentence of every Article of Faith. I would use this book more as a reference book than anything else. There are few books with more standing in the LDS archives than this one.
Faiht depth of doctrine is unparalleled outside of the scriptures. That doesn’t mean it’s an interesting read, just an important one.
The book was based on a series of lectures Talmage gave while teaching. The Church then asked if Talmage would collect these into a book, which was first published inI think. My biggest problems with the book were first, that it wasn’t clear who the intended audience was. If it was for members of the church like myself, then the basic doctrines don’t need so much explanation. I know who Joseph Smith is. If it is intended more for others to learn about what we believe, as I think it was faitth basic intent, then I think there is too much detail.

I just can’t see many outsiders picking this up for a little casual reading to learn more about the Mormons. The other problem I have is that it is ralmage old. For instance, when talking about the gathering of Israel, the modern nation didn’t exist yet. The Church was still somewhat officially calling everyone to migrate to the West.
The only temples were in Utah. So much of that has changed. All that said, I did learn a lot from this book. One of the most interesting parts was about how and why the Bible is organized the way it is. I had never heard that before. I also really enjoyed the part about the 11th Article of Faith, which is about religious tolerance.
I liked this quote, although the wording is old-fashioned: No person possessing a regard for Deity can be conent if restricted in the performance of the highest duty of his existence. Could one be happy, though he were housed in a palace, surrounded with all material comforts and provided with every facility for intellectual enjoyment, if he were cut off from communion with the being whom he loved the most? Members of LDS Church would surely learn a lot from it, but it is a little out of date.
Those not of our faith and wanting to learn what we believe would be better off just reading the articles themselves. My rating might be a little high, but I did enjoy this book.
