||The Essential James E. Talmage
||James P. Harris
"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
