It took me two years to slowly get through this text because I wanted to cross reference everything and look up every word that I was not familiar with. The guy who wrote this is a pure genius and I really enjoyed this. It put me right in the moment down to the very detail of everything that was happening, and it did it with great dignity and accuracy.

The first 70 or 80 pages or so are somewhat difficult to get through, but the rest of the book is absolutely incredible. A must read for anyone wants to understand better the life of Christ.

Love the book! The problem is in the Kindle adaptation. Yes, it has a linked table of contents, but the links only list the chapter number, not the name or anything else about the chapter, so it is almost useless. There are better Kindle versions of this book, the one I've found to be best is actually free too.

Anoyed by previous reviewer's ignorance of Mormon doctrine. They are not a cult and absolutely believe Christ to be the Son of God. The principles and attitudes expressed in this book are very much a part or the Mormom truths embraced by members today. This an amazing book when read will help one to form a better relationship with the Savior. It is well worth the time and effort.

Note that there are reviews here for two different books by the same title. They are the Talmadge (LDS) and Kasper (Roman Catholic) books. Just be sure you know which one you're looking at and you'll be fine.

As a dedicated scholar of religions, this is arguably one the best books ever written on not only Mormon Christianity, but within the entire genre of Christianity as a whole. It would be nearly impossible for a non-member seeking to truly understand the tenants of the LDS faith without first reading this book. Talmage's book should be considered required reading for all Mormon scholars, both within and without the faith.

The LDS faithful will surely find inspiration in its pages that rivals only that of their scripture. Non-LDS who seek a better understanding of Mormon Christianity will surely appreciate Talmage's clear, concise, well-documented, yet comprehensive discussions on the viewpoints of the Jesus from the perspective of an often misunderstood, well-documented, and entirely Christian faith.

Commissioned by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to be an authoritative book on the Latter-day Saints view of Jesus Christ, "Jesus the Christ" is one of the classics in theology among the Saints. If you have any question about Christology among the Mormons, this book will answered any and every question.
Joseph F. Smith, the President of the Church, commissioned James E. Talmage, a member of the Quorum of Twelve Apostles, to write this biography on the life of Christ. The idea was to use this book as a home reference and a Church textbook. He more than met the challenge, and this book is still in print almost 100 years later, and is standard work for LDS Missionaries.
This book covers every aspect of Christ as best can be expected in one volume. It begins with Christ premortal existence, his mortal ministry in Palestine, his atonement, and finally his post mortal ministry in the Spirit Word (I believe . . . he was crucified, dead, and buried; he descended into hell) and among the Nephites as recorded in the Book of Mormon: Another Testament of Jesus Christ.
The only two drawbacks with this book are it size, and the verbiage. Elder Talmage was an Englishman, so he spoke with an Englishman's vocabulary. A dictionary solves this problem.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
James Edward Talmage (1862-1933) was a member of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormons) from 1911 until his death in 1933. This book was originally written in 1915.

He writes in the Preface, "It will be readily seen that the author has departed from the course usually followed by writers on the Life of Jesus Christ, which course, as a rule, begins with the birth of Mary's Babe and ends with the ascension of the slain and risen Lord from Olivet. The treatment embodied in these pages, in addition to the narrative of the Lord's Life in the flesh, comprises the antemortal existence and activities of the world's Redeemer, the revelations and personal manifestations of the glorified and exalted Son of God during the apostolic period of old and in modern times, the assured nearness of the Lord's second advent, and predicted events beyond---all so far as the Holy Scriptures make plain."

Here are some quotations from the book (page numbers are from the 746-page 1983 Deseret Books paperback edition):

"'Mormonism' accepts the doctrine of the fall... but it affirms that none but Adam is or shall be answerable for Adam's disobedience..." (Pg. 29)
"That Child to be born of Mary was begotten of Elohim, the Eternal Father, not in violation of natural law but in accordance with a higher manifestation thereof." (Pg. 77)
"(W)e believe Christ to have been born in the year known to us as B.C. 1..." (Pg. 97)
"Among these extra-Biblical scriptures, the following may be named: ... a missing epistle of Paul to the Corinthians (1 Cor 5:9); a missing epistle to the Ephesians (Eph 3:3); a missing epistle to the Colossians, written from Laodicea (Col 4:16); a missing epistle of Jude (Jude 3)." (Pg.
