"The Lectures on Faith in Historical Perspective", Edited by Dahl, Larry E., and Tate, Charles D., Jr. Provo, UT: Religious Studies Center, Brigham Young University, 1990.

Abstract

The Lectures on Faith are among the oldest of LDS writings. They formed the basis for doctrinal studies in the School for the Elders during the winter of 1834–35 and ever since have been highly valued in the Church. They constitute a substantial historical and doctrinal heritage from early Restoration years. Bringing together in one volume the background, the history, the text, and an informed and stimulating commentary, this book makes a major contribution to an understanding of the subject and therefore to the reader’s efforts to live the great principle of faith in Jesus Christ.
