Publisher's Summary

"Happiness is foreign, liberty but a name, and life a disappointment, to him who is denied the freedom to worship as he may desire."
This classic of Mormon literature is based on a series of theological lectures by Talmage, which were created for use in religious education. James E. Talmage was an English chemist and geologist, who moved to the United States and became a prominent figure in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. This book provides commentary and doctrinal references for each of Joseph Smith's Thirteen Articles of Faith that form the core beliefs of the LDS Church.
Scholarly and dense, the book is packed with inspirational quotes and examples and makes an ideal personal scripture study guide for members of the LDS Church. First published in 1899, it is still relevant today, and is also accessible for those less familiar with the teachings of the LDS Church.

Narration spoils a very good book

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Narration was somewhat monotonous, but I might have stuck with it, if it weren't for the additional annoyance of having to constantly hear Mormon-specific words pronounced incorrectly. I've decided to return the audio book.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Pronunciation was frequently incorrect

Near raider of the poor job finding out about context and pronunciations

Although the narrator has a good voice and enunciated clearly it was woefully obvious that he had not studied any of the background of the text. This became most obvious in references to some of the Canon used by the church of Jesus Christ of latter-day Saints and in the way that he would describe what should've been referred to as chapters and verses instead he referred to them as books. Even though a certain reference, such as the doctrine and covenants, was abbreviated it was obvious also that he made no attempt to try to help the listener better understand what the abbreviation meant. He also must not have interviewed anyone who is a member of the church for them to be able to help him understand the typical way in which certain words and names in particular are pronounced. I found it extremely distracting. otherwise had he been more diligent to what the listener heard than how he assumed something should have been said his narration would have been better. It is doubtful I will purchase another audible with him as narrator
