Overview

It is a matter of history that, at or near the beginning of what has since come to be known as the Christian era, the Man Jesus, surnamed the Christ, was born in Bethlehem of Judea. The principal data as to His birth, life, and death are so well attested as to be reasonably indisputable; they are facts of record, and are accepted as essentially authentic by the civilized world at large. True, there are diversities of deduction based on alleged discrepancies in the records of the past as to circumstantial details; but such differences are of strictly minor importance, for none of them nor all taken together cast a shadow of rational doubt upon the historicity of the earthly existence of the Man known in literature as Jesus of Nazareth.

Meet the Author

James Edward Talmage was 13 years old when his family emigrated from their native England and settled in Provo, Utah.
Intelligent and thirsty for knowledge, James was a part-time member of the faculty of the Brigham Young Academy in Provo, Utah, by the time he was 17. He went on to study chemistry and geology at Lehigh University in Pennsylvania and at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland. Membership in many prominent scientific societies gave James Talmage access to important people and publications and helped him combat much of the prejudice faced by Latter-day Saints at the time.
In 1888 he married Mary May Booth. They became the parents of eight children. From 1894 to 1897 he was president of the University of Deseret in Salt Lake City (now the University of Utah). During that time he bought one of the popular new chain-driven bicycles and rode it often. One evening he arrived home an hour late for dinner, bruised, bloodied, and dirty. Near his home was a single-plank bridge across a ditch. Normally, he dismounted and crossed on foot. But this time he felt he could ride across. He kept at it, crash after crash, until he mastered the maneuver.
Elder Talmage was an effective lecturer, and some of his talks and lessons became the basis of some of the books for which he is well-known, including The Articles of Faith. Prior to his call to the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles in 1911, the First Presidency had asked him to write a book on the life and ministry of the Savior. Later, a room was set aside in the Salt Lake Temple where Elder Talmage could concentrate on his writing. His 700-page book, Jesus the Christ, was published in 1915 and has been reprinted several times since then.

I'm very pleased to have this in my tablet. I'm almost finished reading it for the second time in the hard copy - 1 chapter to go. It's going to be so convenient now, having it in my tablet. It comes with all the author's notes (commentaries) and footnotes at the ends of the chapters, just like the hard copy. Elder Talmage helps bring so much to light. This book is a great way to get to know our Savior better! Such an inexpensive way to gain such valuable knowledge!

I wanted a reference for Christ and his life. A timeline of sorts written in a language I could understand and this was perfect.

What a great Edition! Hardcover Durability, with large enough font size to make reading comfortable, unlike the tiny-print Missionary Reference Library editions. In a house full of kids, the durability is really, really helpful. Thanks! :-)

I challenge you to see if you can read this book only once! Like I did, I bet you'll read it again and again. If you are a Christian, or want to learn more about Christ, this is the place.

This book stands as a witness of Jesus Christ, and reveals the life of Christ as only an Apostle could.

Excellent book on the life and ministry of Jesus Christ! It gets really good once you read past the first two or three chapters.
