This special audiobook edition of the Lectures on Faith from Zion's Camp Books has been prepared especially with you in mind. It is narrated as a book, rather than with chapter and verse numbers as in the print edition. This will give you the greatest enjoyment as you listen to the words of the prophets and learn about faith.
"Dry reader – powerful writing!"
The Faith-Promoting Series began in 1879 with the publication of this book, My First Mission. At that time George Q. Cannon, who was a member of the First Presidency, desired to produce a series of books that would both teach faith and other important gospel principles as well as be entertaining enough that youth would be willing to read them. The results were some of the most important and widest read books in the early-LDS cannon.
String of Pearls, book two of the Faith-Promoting series is a collection of missionary experiences, revelation, and beginnings. The first section of this book is the account of an emigrant who lived among the Ponca Indians, a tribe east of the Mississippi in the Ohio River Valley. W.C.S. describes hardships that greatly increased his faith since he looked on his experience as an Indian missionary.
President Woodruff shares his experiences of embracing the gospel and joining the church, his adventures as a part of Zion's Camp with Joseph Smith and other church leaders, his callings and miracles that occurred during his many missions around the US and to England and Canada, as well as giving specific instructions to anyone interested in coming to live by the spirit of God.
