Great as a reference book for Mormons, but tough to read all the way through. It was written to provide a more current treatment of the Articles of Faith of the Mormon Church than that by James E. Talmage in Jesus the Christ.

I just love Bruce R. McConkie's books. I learn so much every time I read them. There is not another series of books about Jesus Christ and his life that is more detailed and more referenced then this series. So much to digest. Love it!!!!
