LeGrand Richards was a prominent missionary and leader in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He served as the seventh presiding bishop of the LDS Church from 1938 to 1952, and was then called as a member of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles by Church President David O. McKay.
A Marvelous Work and a Wonderby LeGrand Richards
At the conclusion of Elder LeGrand Richards' presidency of the Southern States Mission of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in 1937, he left with the missionaries an outline entitled "The Message of Mormonism." This outline was prepared to assist the missionaires in their study and presentation of the gospel in a systematic and logical manner. It has since been used in a number of missions and by stake missionaries. Repeated requests and suggestions that it be printed have influenced the decision to enlarge upon the original outline and have it published in book form. It is here presented under the title "A Marvelous Work and A Wonder."

I can't believe I am the first to review this book, but I will tell you that this book is real. It is a logical approach to explaining what The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (Mormons) believes in. It also uses references from outside sources and the scriptures (Both the Bible and the Book of Mormon) to explain these principles. If you ever get the chance to read this book, please do it is worth a read (or some rereads!)
The title says it all. Can read it again and again.
This book is so amazing, I am surprised that other's haven't read it! it is so real and a great look at what LDS (mormons) believe! I am a true believer!!
Here we have a book that claims to back the LDS (Mormon) religious faith with logic. It is somewhat akin to expressing why a painting is beautiful using scientific analysis. You miss the whole point! This author falls short of his goal, just like every other author who tries to logically prove why his view of God is the only right view of God. Those who have studied logic should find this book laughable. As for my rating, it is an average. If you are an LDS and you are somewhat insecure in your beliefs, then I would give this book 5 stars, for you. If you like reading illogical arguments, this book is worth at least 4 stars. If you fit into neither of these first two categories, I find it difficult to give this book even 1 star.
