    1. [Name Redacted]

      Like McConkie's "Mormon Doctrine", this book contains many treatises by one man which largely represent only his own personal views and interpretations. Unlike "Mormon Doctrine", Fielding Smith typically does an excellent job of outlining A) which views and interpretations ARE his own, and B) that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints expects its members to pursue personal spiritual confirmation of statements by its leaders. I tend to feel that this is one of the primary defining chara [...]

      this book is such a amazing book to read brethren and sisters . Make sure you just open it and grasp some eternal knowledge from it

    3. Katie

      I love this book because you can just sit down for five minutes and read one gospel question and get its answer. A lot of the stuff you already know, but it's still cool to hear him explain why it's that way. Also, I've found lots of stuff I didn't knowdly, because I don't read the actual scriptures themselves enough!

    4. Jason

      You gotta love Deseret Book's preface to this one-edition version of President Smith's classic: our's is a church of continuing revelation and some of the answers are now dated.That's about the right approach to the book. I consider it a must-read for anyone serious about understanding the LDS perspective, but President Smith does tend to finesse some of the tougher questions a bit. Even where the answers are not entirely satisfying, the questions themselves are thought-provoking enough to justi [...]

    5. Mike Emett

      Although in 2014 some of the questions/answers are a bit dated since this was originally done in the 1950's, (i.e. priesthood and all worthy males)this is a great read for those seeking answers to the same questions one might have and other questions I knew I never thought of asking. Helps clarify what may seem as confusing doctrine or moments in Church history (both primitive and Restored) or for those LDS who care, some 'deep doctrine' but nothing too deep and crazy. I really enjoyed this and [...]

      Part of me loves this book, and part of me hates it. While it's an excellent for finding thorough answers to a lot of doctrinal questions, many of the "questions" seem to be really contrived and many of the "answers" seem really combative in nature--like you can imagine someone saying "So there!" after reading them.

      Lately, in my spare time, I have been picking this book up, opening it to random pages and just reading. It is not a book that I could read cover to cover and for that reason it will perpetually be in my currently-reading category. But it so interesting to read and I am really enjoying all the things I am learning.

    8. Jordan

      I think every member of the church should at least read through the index of questions answered in this book and read any that catch their interest. A lot of questions I have wondered about were answered in this book.

    9. Jessica

      I love reading random sections of this book because it makes me want to go and read more about whatever section I open up to. Kind of like browsing through an encyclopedia: some of it is common knowledge, but other parts are really unusual.

      Loved this book!!!! I learned a lot, and Joseph Fielding Smith is an amazing writer/scriptorian!!!!!! It was totally worth the money.

    11. Sacha Head

      Clearly and excellently written, though very long. I think it's hilarious how he reprimands people for not reading their scriptures and then answers their questions.

    12. Kimber

      This is the best book ever. I love this book, it answers so many questions and helps in all lessons that you may need to teach. Everyone should have this book. We have TWO!!!
