This book helped me tie the prophecies of the scriptures together in a pattern of events that I could see and understand. I read this book on Sundays and so this is the culmination of reading that I started in September of 2007.
This finishes the series for me. I made a goal to finish them all and it has taken years, do you hear me? Years! But, I did it, and am very glad.
Great as a reference book for Mormons, but tough to read all the way through. This book 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.
Okay, so I didn't read this whole book. It's more of a reference type book, and I basically just checked it out so I could read one chapter. I loved the chapter that I read, and even made myself a copy of the whole chapter to have on hand as a reference. I did skim some other topics, but to read this whole book cover to cover would take me years. ;)
Though McConkie's style is hard for some to palate due to his confidence and authoritarian voice, one cannot argue that the doctrines he supports through scripture are both well-placed, insightful, and significant. Those wishing to understand the Second Coming would do well to read this book. Straightforward, easy reading.

I've been planning to read this series of books, like, FOREVER! But, the more the daily paper begins to read like the wind-up chapters of the Book of Mormon, the more I feel a need to separate fact from myth regarding the Last Days. It's time to sit down and do some *serious* study. . . .
This is a well-informed trek through the scriptures about the Millennium. He includes some conjecture about what certain passages mean - but they are all clearly mentioned as such. There are lots of repeated descriptions, so I felt like I was rereading entire paragraphs from page to page.

This is not an easy book to read but well worth reading. McConkie's writing style takes some getting used to. He was a great biblical scholar and I was intrigued with his ability to but together passages found in various places and sometimes really obscure Bible books.
There are 3 in this series, The Promised Messiah, The Mortal Messiah, and The Millennial Messiah.
This is a quite large book that will take me a while to finish. Right now I am reading bits and pieces. It has great info. as the books from Bro. McConkie always do.
I just learned that the lost ten tribes do not currently exist as a gathered body, but they are being gathered from all over the world into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
Super long, super dense, but I haven't seen a more correct, scripturally-cited treatise on the Millenium anywhere. Quite a few bits of information I hadn't heard before.
Beautifully written and with such strength of Spirit. I gained so much understanding in his writing and enjoyed the joy with which he writes of the days to come.
This book was an incredible book. I learned SO much that I didn't know or hadn't thought of. I want to read it again.
This is probably my 6th time reading this book. Knowledge is a wonderful thing. Wish I had some of the author's. :)
Typical Bruce R McConkie. Very wordy, but good stuff every once and a while.

I love this book. Elder McConkie has great insight.
