Jesus The Christ

A Book Review

Title: Jesus the Christ
Author: James E. Talmage
Genre: Religion (LDS)


First published in 1915, Jesus the Christ is the classic Latter-day Saint presentation of the life and ministry of the Savior. Elder Marion G. Romney said, “One who gets the understanding, the vision, and the spirit of the resurrected Lord through a careful study of the text Jesus the Christ by Elder James E. Talmage will find that he has greatly increased his moving faith in our glorified Redeemer.”


My Thoughts

It took me a long time to get through Jesus the Christ, but that’s only because it’s (1) really long, and (2) full of so much material. Jesus the Christ greatly improved my understanding of the life and teachings of the Savior by providing insight into the customs and practices of the time, supported by historical research and ecclesiastical writings. Many passages of the New Testament that were once enigmatic were made clear, and my testimony of Christ’s divinity and Atonement were strengthened. I still refer back to Jesus the Christ often when reading the scriptures, regardless of which book I’m currently studying. I highly recommend this book for any Christian—LDS or otherwise—who wants to improve their understanding of and relationship with their Savior and Redeemer.

Score: 5 out of 5 stars (5 / 5)
