Answers to Gospel Questions is one of many books written on topic by Joseph Fielding Smith, 10th President and Prophet of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (LDS Church aka Mormon). His father Joseph F. Smith, was 6th President of the LDS Church and grandson to Hyrum Smith. Hyrum was the brother of Joseph Smith Jr., Prophet, Seer and Revelator, who restored the Gospel of Jesus Christ in this modern day dispensation of time. Hyrum and Joseph Smith Jr., were murdered by an angry mob in Carthage, Illinois in 1844. Joseph Fielding Smith was a church historian and recorder and member of the Quorum of Twelve Apostles. His vast knowledge of Christ and his teachings has made him an an expert on the subject. He is a prolific writer who answers many questions relating to Christ, his life, his Gospel and his Church. I suggest each of these books in the numbered series to get a clearer understanding of what Christ's Gospel means to Christians, and Non-Christians alike. I also suggest reading Answers to Gospel Questions to understand where we were before coming to this life on earth, why we are here on earth and where we go after. Joseph Fielding Smith makes it perfectly clear that the more we understand pertaining to Christ's Gospel, the more we understand these questions. He also reminds us through his writings that it is up to us to learn and gain knowledge, for our knowledge and understanding is all that we will take with us to our next resting stop.
