Publisher's Summary

On April 7, 1844, Joseph Smith gave a sermon in Nauvoo, Illinois, at a general conference of the church. In attendance were nearly 20,000 church members. 

A few weeks earlier, on March 9, a church member and close friend of Joseph named King Follett was killed in an accident. This well-known event in Nauvoo led Joseph Smith to comment specifically on Follett’s death and to address what Joseph called “[T]he subject of the dead”. For this reason, Joseph’s sermon has often been referred to as the King Follett sermon or discourse. 

The King Follett discourse is recorded along with two other sermons given by Joseph Smith in the Journal of Discourses. Each of the three discourses have been compiled together to form the present work, and additional commentary and insights have been added so the modern listener may better understand the principles taught therein and thus feel an increase in their faith.

The truth is delicious! Craving more!

Outstandingly profound and so beautifully simple and easy to understand. The gospel works, and it makes sense too.

Great insights on King Follett doctrine

I was pleasant surprised how well researched the "new commentary for the modern reader" section supports the doctrines Joseph Smith teaches in the King Follett discourse. A must read for anyone searching for truth. I had no idea that so many early Christians taught the same doctrines.

Enlightening

Many precepts I had heard vaguely that were expounded upon. A clearer picture of actual words and thoughts provided. Very enjoyable!

Too Much Using the Names of Diety

I revere Joseph Smith as the Prophet, but this book had an abrupt use of the Lord's and the Father's name more than any of my non-religious books. The lingo might have been the thing back then but was too distracting for me today -- and is all that I can remember of it!

Discourses are wonderful, editing is not

This is definitely worth listening to for what information it gives. Unfortunately the editing is poor. There were a few “redo’s” that weren’t edited out and a few paragraphs completely repeated. But, overall this is very good. The narrator does a good job.
