    It took me a while to read but totally worth it.


  2. Chris Condie Chris Condie says:

    I enjoyed this volume Especially the introduction by B.H Roberts The persecution of the Saints in Missouri at the end of the volume was gut wrenching and the legal and political aspects of it are likely to be enjoyed by lawyers and political scientists alike.

    So I read over 100 sections of the Doctrine and Covenants, because that s what most of this volume of history was.Sometimes it was a little tedious, but overall, I appreciated having the revelations included in the D C put into context for me, and there were a lot of stories from the history of the LDS Church that I wasn t familiar with.I also appreciated the multitude of primary sources that are cited and included, such as letters and petitions to the Governor and President asking for help with So I read over 100 sections of the Doctrine and Covenants, because that s what most of this volume of history was.Sometimes it was a little tedious, but overall, I appreciated having the revelations included in the DC put into context for me, and there were a lot of stories from the history of the LDS Church that I wasn t familiar with.I also appreciated the multitude of primary sources that are cited and included, such as letters and petitions to the Governor and President asking for help with the mob violence in Jackson County.1 down, 6 to go

    What can I say about this one It is what it is.It is interesting for me to note that Joseph Smith s literacy actually improves noticeably as the book progresses.Other than that if your interested in getting a very detailed account of the events that took place in the early days of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints then you should read it If not then don t.

    Joseph Smith puts the Doctrine and Covenants in historical context in these volumes It s making a great dealsense to me now and I intend to keep reading the rest in this series.
