    One thought on “Comprehensive History of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints”

    1. When B.H. Roberts finished the six-volume history of the first century of the church, he brought it to the pulpit at general conference "as to an altar" and dedicated it to the church and to God. It's remarkable.First, I love the commentary he provides. He has a unique perspective on the events of early church history, having lived through much of it. For instance, not surprisingly, much of the history revolves around the doctrine, practice, and consequences of polygamy. Elder Roberts asks why t [...]

    2. I'm actually on the 2nd volume now of this 6-volume series. It has been on our shelves for years, and I finally decided to tackle it this year. I'm so glad I did - I'm learning in much greater depth about the early history of the church, and as another reviewer said of it - it's a real page-turner! A bonus is that the entire D&C is included within the text (first 100 sections in the first volume alone). I enjoy reading about history from primary sources. It has brought forward more questions [...]

    3. Even though it is in six volumes, it covers 100 years so it is not as comprehensive as History of the Church by Joseph Smith, Edited by B.H. Roberts. But a again a serious must for anyone intereted in real church history. Not the fictional kind you see in film or fictionalized church history books (I won't name it.)

    4. Didn't think I would enjoy reading this cover to cover but I discovered much new about Church leaders and historic events. The Utah history, Indians and anti-Mormon backlash was particularly interesting. Books contain everything on every issue--more than most want to know.

    5. Very history involved reading. There are a few places where additional information would be helpful. There are several other volumes that cover the same time period and do a good job of filling in additional activities and information.

    6. I read the 7 volume version. Very good books for people who like history and want a fun way to read the Doctrine and Convents as all of the sections are in there.
