The first editions of the Journal were published in England by George D. Watt, the stenographer of Brigham Young. Publication began in 1854, with the endorsement of the church's First Presidency, and ended in 1886. The Journal is one of the richest sources of early Mormon theology and thinking. This Complete Set has been meticulously compiled and published by church members. It includes an index and is fully optimized for reading on today's latest mobile devices. _____________________________________________________________________________________ As a faithful member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, it is also important to note the following excerpt from LDS.org regarding The Journal of Discourses: The Journal of Discourses is not an official publication of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It is a compilation of sermons and other materials from the early years of the Church, which were transcribed and then published. It included some doctrinal instruction but also practical teaching, some of which is speculative in nature and some of which is only of historical interest. The content of the Journal of Discourses was transcribed, sometimes inaccurately, and published between 1854 and 1886 in England. The compilation contains some statements of doctrine as well as other materials of interest to Latter-day Saints who lived far from the center of the Church, including speeches given for a variety of occasions, funeral addresses, reports from returning missionaries, prayers, and the proceedings of a trial. The Journal of Discourses was produced under the guidance of those who transcribed the materials, including George D. Watt, David W. Evans, and George W. Gibbs. Skilled in the use of shorthand, George D. Watt had transcribed many conferences and sermons for the Deseret News. He received little pay for his work. Since the Deseret News was not generally available outside of the United States, Watt proposed to Brigham Young the idea of publishing these materials on a subscription basis. Such a plan would make the materials available to more Saints and allow Watt to earn a living with his work. President Brigham Young supported the plan, and a letter from the First Presidency was included in the first volume encouraging Church members to cooperate in the purchase and sale of the journal. Questions have been raised about the accuracy of some transcriptions.

    For those looking to evangelize to the Mormons, this is an extremely helpful tool having this on Kindle. Being able to find quotes of these self proclaimed apostles and prophets giving false information, highlighting those quotes, and engaging with your intended audience is necessary in exposing the false teachings and evil perpetrated by these guys of the past. These sermons very clearly indicate the mindset of classical Mormonism in contrast to modern day Mormonism.

    This book is as important to LDS members as the Book of Mormon. If every member read this book and lived the teachings, we wouldn't be as lost as we are now. That's all I have to say about that.

    Everyone should read John Taylor's talk in volume one starting on page 147. It explains the whole point of Mormonism. Everyone should read John Taylor's talk in volume one starting on page 147. It explains the whole point of Mormonism.
