Journal of Discourses

I recently discovered a link (over at FAIR) to The Journal of Discourses online. I thought some of you might be interested in reading from Volumes 1-26 of that publication. Enjoy.

The Journal of Discourses

I almost forgot to mention that I turned on word verification to cut spam, but I expect you have noticed by now! It really helps so any bloggers out there who haven't tried it, go ahead.

Not that it is that big of a deal, but you should be aware that this site is hosted by fundies.

I thought being on FAIR, it was probably some mainstream group of LDS who had it up. Is Journal of Discourses anywhere else on line? It is rather nice to be able to read in it.

THis is BYU's copy. It's scanned in images, so that's a little annoying, but it's a good resource for a lot of other books too.

Thanks for the info, Matt! I'll go check it out.

Mary, great link. We have a full set here at home. It was a wedding gift from my parents. My husband had been a member a mere 15 months when we got married so, of course, my parents thought the immersion method of learning would be the best. ;-)
I have to admit they haven't been opened nearly enough in our studies.

Thanks Mary, what a great source, and to Matt as well for the additional info and help.

I have enjoyed going thru them and getting an historical context on many of the things that are discussed today. If we could be transported back to 1851 I think that many of us would be thought of as having weak testimonies or less than total commitment to the Church.

I found out that I have The Journal of Discourses on a 1999 version of Infobase--the trouble is, it doesn't have table of contents pages like the one at the link above. Actually, I don't mind using that link--we aren't having to pay and therefore, support a group we might not want to support. But it's good to know who's running the site so everyone can make up their own mind about it.

Glad you like it, Barb! Hope everything is going well for you. I've been too busy for my own good and I'm about worn out! But basically, everything's fine here.

While on my mission in Utah I couldn't pass up the opportunity to use my missionary discount at an LDS bookstore in Kaysville to purchase History of the Church. It was still some money but I never regretted it as I used my set quite thoroughly while teaching the D&C in Gospel Doctrine (back when it was chronological). The set was quite fun to get back home to Texas (I shipped it a couple of books at a time). I also eyed the Journal of Discourses but that would have been even more fun to get home and it was more expensive. But, I sure wanted it.

I also added word verification to one of my blogs. My posting on True brought in some ... er...interesting stuff.

I got the paperback History of the Church plus B.H.Roberts' history, also paperback. They are very interesting (I've read both) and give a good overview if you read them straight through, or you can look up details.

The Journal of Discourses is quoted enough that I was interested in looking it over, too. So much to read, so little time!!!

Yeah, that word verification sure helps.
