Description

"The Essential James E. Talmage celebrates one of Mormonism's preeminent theologians. Elder Talmage served as an apostle for twenty-two years and wrote such widely-known books as The Great Apostasy and The House of the Lord. He was a serious scientist, with his own thoughts on evolution and the antiquity of human beings. In this volume he tells his own story through selected lectures and journal entries featuring his views on science and religion and the theological discussions that preceded The Articles of Faith and Jesus the Christ. His counsel that church members stay "up-to-date" is reflected in his own writing." (From back cover.)
