Teachings of the Prophets: Statements of LDS Leaders on Contemporary Issues

Teachings of the Prophets fills the ongoing need for quick, easy access to recent statements of LDS leaders on important topics. The author assembled 62 major subject headings and then researched extensively to identify statements on those subjects. What have the General Authorities of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints taught on the subject of evolution? On sex education? On abortion, welfare and work, debt, and taxes? This thorough compilation answers these questions and many more with definitive statements from recognized leaders of the Church. Teachings of the Prophets is not commentary or interpretation, nor is it comprised of selective partial quotes. It is the exact, full statement on the particular referenced topic as it appeared, or if the citation is not available for independent publication, it is a precise summation of the statement’s meaning and location. This is an excellent reference book to add to an individual’s library of essential books on the Restored Gospel.

    Teachings of the Prophets fills the ongoing need for quick, easy access to recent statements of LDS leaders on important topics–those subjects which come up frequently in family discussions, Church classes, and members’ dialogues with LDS and non-member friends. The author assembled 62 major subject headings and then researched extensively to identify statements on those subjects.

    Teachings of the Prophets is not commentary or interpretation, nor is it comprised of selective partial quotes. It is the exact, full statement on the particular referenced topic as it appeared, or if the citation is not available for independent publication, it is a precise summation of the statement’s meaning and location. Many of the cited quotations are not well-known or readily accessible in other Church publications, so this collection will save considerable time and effort for the user. This is an excellent reference book to add to an individual’s library of essential books on the Restored Gospel.
