-Jesus the Christ: is a doctrinal study on the life and ministry of Christ, and is a widely appreciated document among Latter-day Saints. The book consists of 42 chapters, each focusing on important aspects of the life and mission of Jesus as the Messiah. Talmage takes a very in depth look into the divine mission of Jesus Christ. Talmage explains Christ's role in Heavenly Father's eternal plan--from the preexistence to His earthly ministry to His glorious resurrection. You will not find a more enlightning book on Christ.
-Articles of Faith: In this book James Talmage who was a Mormon Church Apostle in the late 19th and early 20th century outlines a greater understanding of the Articles of Faith. Talmage explains them very well doing a great job in outlining the Mormon Churches general beliefs and basic theology. Talmage was a very educated man and there is no better person qualified in explaining these beliefs. Anyone interested in knowing what the Mormon Church really believes should have this book.
-The Great Apostasy: In this book, Elder Talmage covers the external and the internal causes of the falling away from the Church and Gospel that Jesus Christ established. External causes are the Jewish persecution and the Pagan persecution, and internal causes being the inclusion of worldly philosophies in the doctrines, the change in the sacraments (ordinances) of the Church, and the change in church government and organization. He then brings us through the Apostasy to the Restoration in the 1800’s by Joseph Smith.
-The House of the Lord: A Study of Holy Sanctuaries, Ancient and Modern. Because non-Mormons are not allowed inside Latter-day Saint Temples, curiosity seeders have tried through a variety of means, specially upon completion of the Salt Lake City edifice in 1893 to ascertain what the interior looks like and what activities transpire therein. This inordinate interest prompted church leaders to commission Professor James E. Talmage in 1911, three months before he was ordained an apostle, to compile a visual and textual representation for the general public.
-Parables of James E. Talmage: these writing were originally found in The Improvement Era beginning in January 1914. They contain unforgettable stories and incidents that delightfully teach great gospel truths in a superb way.
-The Story and Philosophy of Mormonism: A few years before James E. Talmage was called to serve as an apostle for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (also known as the "Mormon" church), he gave a series of lectures at universities such as the University of Michigan and Cornell, describing the history of the Church. These lectures were later compiled and published as 'The Story of "Mormonism."' It is a concise, yet informative summary for all interested in learning the history and beliefs of the "Mormon" church.
-The Vitality of Mormonism: Brief Essays On Distinctive Doctrines Of The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter-day Saints. Another in depth look at the doctrines of Mormon Church.
