Greene was in the habit of dropping the Tablet a line on anything from Nicaragua to the sex of God. From his self-imposed exile on the French Riviera, he took a semi-detached but benign interest in a paper which had an influence out of proportion to its circulation. It was one relationship that would last Greene a lifetime. As a young journalist he had contributed fiction reviews. Later, the world-renowned author gave interviews to the Tablet when more glamorous titles were turned away.

He let the paper publish his novel Monsignor Quixote in draft form. These pieces have been retrieved and placed between hard covers here for the first time. Greene's attachment to the Tablet waxed and waned according to the politics of its incumbent editor. I honestly liked reading the Articles Of Faith. This article is about the Principles of some faith values of Jesus Christ and the lord.

Many church services and churches read this article because like It Personnel response: Many church services and churches read this article because like It said in the book it describes many doctrines and rules of faith of Jesus Christ and many rules to follow and to abide to the Christian faith. This book or article has been published to be printed to over 13 other languages and passages. In the creeds were written by Joseph smith.

In my own opinion I think that young teens or even young adults could read this but anyone that's not in their teens years might not understand the content of this book. I am again amazed at the knowledge of this man. He is a deep thinker and for the most part, with careful reading and help from a study group, you can follow him.

There are a few sections where the years since its writing show their age, but it holds up incredibly well. This is not for the faint of heart, but like most things that require effort, the reward is great. View all 3 comments. Oct 15, Stephen Greco rated it it was ok Shelves: This book is very dry. I read it just to say that I did. It basically just breaks down all the 13 Articles of Faith with elaborate explanations and scripture references on basically each sentence of every Article of Faith. I would use this book more as a reference book than anything else.

There are few books with more standing in the LDS archives than this one. The depth of doctrine is unparalleled outside of the scriptures. That doesn't mean it's an interesting read, just an important one. The book was based on a series of lectures Talmage gave while teaching. The Church then asked if Talmage would collect these into a book, which was first published in , I think. My biggest problems with the book were first, that it wasn't clear who the intended audience was.

If it was for members of the church like myself, then the basic doctrines don't need so much explanation. I know who Joseph Smith is. If it is intended more for others to learn about what we believe, as I think it was the basic intent, then I think there is too much detail. I just can't see many outsiders picking this up for a little casual reading to learn more about the Mormons.

The other problem I have is that it is so old. For instance, when talking about the gathering of Israel, the modern nation didn't exist yet.

The Church was still somewhat officially calling everyone to migrate to the West. The only temples were in Utah. So much of that has changed. All that said, I did learn a lot from this book. One of the most interesting parts was about how and why the Bible is organized the way it is. I had never heard that before. I also really enjoyed the part about the 11th Article of Faith, which is about religious tolerance. I liked this quote, although the wording is old-fashioned: No person possessing a regard for Deity can be conent if restricted in the performance of the highest duty of his existence.

Could one be happy, though he were housed in a palace, surrounded with all material comforts and provided with every facility for intellectual enjoyment, if he were cut off from communion with the being whom he loved the most? Members of LDS Church would surely learn a lot from it, but it is a little out of date. Those not of our faith and wanting to learn what we believe would be better off just reading the articles themselves.

My rating might be a little high, but I did enjoy this book. It was just a little dense at times. For those who are interested, here is a link to the Articles of Faith under discussion: Jul 06, Samuel rated it really liked it. Using the 13 "Articles of Faith" articulated by Joseph Smith in to expound and explain the entirety of Mormon doctrine, Talmage does a successful job of articulating the main tenets of belief and practice held by Mormons writing in the early twentieth century--most of his writings stand up surprisingly well to today's standards held by the Church: Furthermore, he expounds upon the simple declarations of faith in such a way that leaves the mainstream, Mormon interpretation of these articles thoroughly clear.

Due to both the clarity of organization, and the thoroughness of explanation each chapter is not an article, he wisely breaks up more loaded articles into its parts for deeper discussion--especially the fourth and tenth articles of faith , this book among so many other Mormon monographs attempting to explain the entire complexity of Mormon doctrine stands out as an enduring success: May 18, Michele rated it it was ok Shelves: It nearly killed me. I think this was my third time through and I had a hard time getting into it. I love the Jesus the Christ series, so it may have been me.

Of course, there are some mind blowing quotes so here we go. That one-half don't make it here? I had no idea! So many voices silenced and unable to prove themse Finally done! So many voices silenced and unable to prove themselves. It blows my mind. Aug 19, Mason rated it liked it. As a lifelong member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, the Articles of faith are very familiar to me.

So much so that as I began to read Elder Talmage's scholarly explanations of each AoF, I couldn't help but become bored by them. I eventually realized, however, that the best way for me to read the book was to try to see it from the point-of-view of someone unfamiliar with the Church and its doctrines. I started to learn a lot more and read much more quickly, although it still As a lifelong member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, the Articles of faith are very familiar to me.

I started to learn a lot more and read much more quickly, although it still took over two years of off-and-on reading to finish. To sum up, I didn't enjoy Articles of Faith nearly as much as Jesus the Christ, but I am glad I read it and it is certainly worth the effort. As old as this text might be, the principles and doctrines are what matter in this book. I enjoyed reading the observations of Elder James E. Talmage in this particular work of his. I loved his writings about the Book of Mormon, and how it is true. I've learned some new things about the evidences of the Book of Mormon.

May 15, Ryan Smout rated it liked it Shelves: This essentially reads like a filled-out Topical Guide. It's a compilation of scriptural references that demonstrate why the LDS church believes some of the fundamental things it does. It had occasional outstanding insights like the section on worship on the first couple pages of chapter 22 , but I felt like I had to slog through a lot of it since the doctrines and scriptures are already quite familiar to me having grown up in the church.

I think Talmage's Jesus the Christ is a far superior work, but this one was good. I didn't quite like this book as much as Jesus the Christ. It really isn't the type of book to sit down and read from cover to cover. It is better as a reference book. One that you would pick up as you are preparing a talk or trying to find the answer to a question you have. It would also be a great book to use as a study guide for personal scripture study. At times, I found myself reading a section and thinking, "I already know that". Still a great book. Mar 17, Natalie rated it liked it.

I kind of feel guilty not giving a church book 5 stars, but here's what I think: But I spotted at least 2 or 3 things that are outdated, and I bet there are more. That is probably why it is not part of the official "Missionary Library" anymore. But it was when I was a missionary, and I never read the whole thing back then, so 19 or whatever years later, I feel much better having read it I kind of feel guilty not giving a church book 5 stars, but here's what I think: But it was when I was a missionary, and I never read the whole thing back then, so 19 or whatever years later, I feel much better having read it.

It is the outgrowth of a series of lectures in theology given by Dr. Talmage, commencing in At that time Dr. The First Presidency of the Church invited Dr. Talmage to prepare a text for use in Church schools and religion classes. Sep 30, Julie added it.

It's a little bit heavy of a read Talmage is the only author I can think of that actually uses words I don't know and his prose is drippingly scholarly but I really like his style, and I appreciate how he can discuss a lot of varied doctrine just within the context of the articles of faith. I read this the first time on my mission, and started keeping an index card of words to look up. One of then was "pleonasm". Nov 09, Heather rated it liked it. Great book, but kind of heavy and dense.

Brandon and I read this aloud together, and I must confess that it was very difficult not to have my mind wander!

Article of Faith 7

The language and the topics take a lot of concentration. BUT, if you are reading it to learn and not to be entertained which is its point, anyway! I think someday I'll read it again on my own and only try to do a couple paragraphs at a time. I'm sure I'd get more out of it that way. The book is not for the general reader. It explains in great detail, the beliefs and practices, of the L. Talmage uses many archaic word and sentence structures, unfamiliar to todays audience.

Though some of the doctrines, have changed with the times, Anti Semitic views subtly are expressed. I advise the use of the dictionary, for unfamiliar words, and a discussion with L. Oct 07, Erin rated it it was amazing Shelves: Like most books by James E Talmage, this is a weighty and thorough book, by no means a light read.
