This follow up series of lectures expands upon the "Lectures on Faith" written by Joseph Smith, Jr. that are published in the 1835 book of "Doctrine and Covenants". Covering the topic of repentance, these lectures follow the same format as that seminal work. In this series, repentance comes to light as the reverse principle to faith, propelling the believer back onto the pathway towards salvation after wallowing in sin and ignorance. The reader will discover an in depth analysis of the topic of repentance in perhaps heretofore unseen ways, rivaling other favorites in the Mormon tradition such as Spencer W. Kimball's "Miracle of Forgiveness". In a fresh look, yet using an older format, these lectures allow the scriptures in the LDS canon to begin to speak for themselves on this topic in a clear and cohesive manner. This book avoids detailing the minutia of individual sins and transgressions, and instead outlines the spirit and intent of the law and commandments of God. The doctrine of Christ is addressed, and the purpose for keeping commandments is made plain. The central thesis of the book outlines how keeping God's commandments becomes an expression of one's belief in God's character and attributes, as outlined in the "Lectures on Faith", tying the "Lectures of Repentance" to the central thesis of that work. This book teaches what repentance is, when it is necessary, how to do it, and how to be blessed through the process.
