    One thought on “Joseph Smith as Scientist: A Contribution to Mormon Philosophy”

    1. This book may be well-meant, but I simply can't recommend it on that count alone. "Joseph Smith as Scientist" may have worked if the author was trying to point out how religious principles often mimic the more important scientific discoveries. However, this is a far cry from trying to reconcile science and religion, or suggest that Joseph Smith's quotations should be taken in a scientific sense, rather than a spiritual one. I give this book one star because I feel strongly that taking spiritual [...]

    2. Joseph Smith as Scientist: A Contribution to Mormon Philosophy by John A. Widtsoe is a great read to consider in your family. Elder Widtsoe discusses the basic principles of science and then quotes Joseph Smith and his teachings. Some of the subjects treated include: matter, energy, ether, astronomy, geological record, the sixth sense and evolution. This book will challenge you, but it will also increase your comprehension of what God has done for us.I found the subject matter informative and ve [...]

    3. A brilliant synthesis of science and faith that has aged remarkably well. Its discussion of the nature of intelligence and reconciliation of a very strongly materialistic viewpoint with religion are particularly valuable. This is a book that I expect to re-read periodically. It offers a somewhat unusual defense of Joseph Smith by discussing how various fundamental scientific principles are integral to his thought (everything is matter, conservation of matter, universe fundamentally ruled by law) [...]

    4. Very interesting reconciliation of science to the beliefs held by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Some sections I felt were wanting in order to address modern concerns. Some ideas were new, interesting and surprisingly, in perfect accordance with todays scientific theories. I wish I more familiar with modern scientific theory and how it compares to some of the theories discussed within the book which was written over one hundred years ago.

    5. This book is written with the conviction there is no difference between science and religion. The fundamental laws of the universe are foundations in both science and religion. The principle that matter is indestructible belongs as much to theology as to geology.Are you or someone you know struggling with faith? Have you ever wondered how science and religion will reconcile? Try this book.

    6. I like how this book strove to supply concrete answers to the types of religious questions that are typically answered with "does that really matter in the grand scheme of things?" Well, yes. Sometimes I am curious and that type of answer feels like a cop-out. While some of the authors ideas seem like a stretch, I was interested throughout and learned a few new things.

    7. I loved this book. John A Widstoe is a very good writer and scientist. He shed light on some aspects of Joseph Smith's teachings that were remarkable as far as science is concerned. Delightful read.
