Book description
Contents:

Preface

BOOK OF MORMON
Whuy does the Book of Mormon say that Jesus would be born in Jerusalem? (See Alma 7:10) / D. Kelly Ogden
Some passages in the Book of Mormon seem to indicate that there is only one God and that he is a spirit only. How can we explain this? / Roy W. Doxey
Why do we say that the Book of Mormon contains "the fulness of the gospel" (D&C 20:9) when it doesn't contain some of the basic teachings of the Church? Why doesn't it include such doctrines as the three degrees of glory, marriage for eternity, premortal existance of spirits, and baptism for the dead? / Daniel H. Ludlow
Why are the words adieu, Bible, and baptize used in the Book of Mormon? These words weren't known in Book of Mormon times. / Edward J. Brandt
A friend of mine says he has prayed about the Book of Mormon but has not received a testimony of its truthfulness. Shouldn't Moroni's promise always work? / Daniel H. Ludlow
Since the Book of Mormon is largely the record of a Hebrew people, is the writing characteristic of the Hebrew language? / John A. Tvedtnes
What are the best evidences to support the authenticity of the Book of Mormon? / Ellis T. Rasmussen
Why have changes been made in the printed editions of the Book of Mormon / Robert J. Matthews
Did Oliver Cowdery, one of the three special witnesses of the Book of Mormon, express doubt about his testimony? / Richard Lloyd Anderson
What is the meaning of the Book of Mormon passages on eternal hell for the wicked? / H. Donl Peterson
What is the approximate weight of the gold plates from which the Book of Mormon was translated? / Roy W. Doxey
Why were the Book of Mormon gold plates not placed in a museum so that people might know Joseph Smith had had them? / Monte S. Nyman
Would you respond to the theories that the Book of Mormon is based on the Spaulding manuscript or on Ethan Smith's View of the Hebrews? / Bruce D. Blumell
What is B. H. Roberts's "Study of the Book of Mormon" and how have critics used it to discredit the Book of Mormon / John W. Welch

DOCTRINE AND COVENANTS
What are the features of the 1981 edition of the Doctrine and Covenants that can aid us in our scripture study? / Bill Applegarth
Does Doctrine and Covenants 84:19-22 mean that a person has to have the Melchizedek Priesthood in order to see God? Joseph Smith didn't have the priesthood at the time of the First Vision. / Melvin J. Petersen
Why does Doctrine and Covenants 104:1 say that the united order is an everlasting order until the Lord comes, yet it is not practiced today? / Stephen K. Iba
More than a century and a half ago, the Prophet Joseph Smith learned from the Lord that tobacco is not good for us. Since then, medical science has determined the same thing. How has society responded to this information? / Dr. James Mason

NEW TESTAMENT
How do we reconcile the passage "God is a spirit" with God's being a personage of flesh and bones? / William O. Nelson
How do we support the position that Christ organized a church with various officers, particularly in view of Matthew 18:19-20 and 1 Corinthians 12:12-14? / Robert J. Woodford
How do we interpret scriptures in the New Testament that seem to condemn genealogy? / George H. Fudge
Does the practice of baptism for the dead (see 1 Corinthians 15:29) refer to a non-Christian practice, or was it a practice of the gospel of Jesus Christ? / Robert L. Millet
Were the blessings of the temple available to the Saints of Jesus' time, or did they become available after his death? / Robert J. Matthews
Inasmuch as Latter-day Saints believe in marriage for eternity, how do we explain Jesus' teachings in Matthew 22:29-30? / David H. Yarn, Jr.
I get the impression from reading 1 Corinthians 7:7-9 that Paul was not married and was against marriage in general. How can his views be reconciled with the revealed truths of eternal marriage / C. Wilfred Griggs
Will you explain these references in the Bible in view of the Latter-day Saint doctrine that works are necessary for salvation: Ephesians 2:8-9, Titus 3:5, and Roman 4:5? / Robert E. Parsons

OLD TESTAMENT
Did Ezekiel's prophecy about two "sticks" fortell the coming forth of the Book of Mormon, or have Latter-day Saints misinterpreted Ezekiel 37:15-20? / Keith Meservy
How much emphasis is found in the writings of the Old Testament prophets on the subjects of the Restoration and the last days? / Brent Bulloch

THE CHURCH
What is an appropriate way to respond to unfriendly questions about the Church? / Steve F. Gilliland
When nonmembers say we're not Christians, what is the best way to respond? / Jack Weyland
How can I explain the Church's attitude toward the Bible? A friend of mine objects to the fact that we have additional scriptures and that we believe in the Bible only "as far as it is translated correctly." / Robert J. Matthews

CHURCH HISTORY
Do the various accounts by the Prophet Joseph Smith of his first vision demonstrate the validity of that event, or do they cast doubts on the Prophet's integrity? / Milton V. Backman, Jr.
Did Joseph Smith's contemporaries provide accounts of the First Vision as given to them by Joseph Smith, and, if so, are these accounts consistent with his own accounts of the First Vision? / Milton V. Backman, Jr.
What is the historical context of Joseph Smith's concern about which church was true? Did Joseph wirte a reliable account of that historical setting? / Milton V. Backman, Jr.
What changes have been made in the name of the Church? Its full designation does not appear in the revelations until 1838. (See D&C 115:4) / Richard Lloyd Anderson
Was the Church legally incorporated at the time it was organized in the state of New Yo9rk? / Larry C. Porter
I've been reading the Journal of Discourses with a great deal of interest and pleasure, but I notice that they are not printed by the Church. How authoritative should I consider them to be? / Gerald E. Jones

DOCTRINE AND PRINCIPLES
The Savior said that we should be perfect, even as he and our Father in Heaven are perfect. (See 3 Nephi 12:48) Are we expected to achieve perfection in this life? If so, how can I avoid becoming discouraged with myself while I try to achieve it? / Gerald N. Lund
What was in the creeds of men that the Lord found abominable, as he stated in the First Vision? / Hoyt W. Brewster, Jr.
How do Latter-day Saints support the doctrine of Melchizedek Priesthood authority from the Bible? / James A. Carver
Why do we observe the Sabbath on Sunday when the biblical Sabbath seems to have been observed on the seventh day? / Robert J. Matthews
How can Jesus and Lucifer be spirit brothers when their characters and purposes are so utterly opposed? / Jess L. Christensen
How do we endure to the end? The idea seems to imply putting up with a bad situation (life) until death brings release. What do the prophets really mean when the speak of enduring to the end? / Gordon M. Thomas
