They were deemed of such doctrinal worth that they were published in Latter-day Saint scripture from 1835 to 1921 as the forepart of the Doctrine and Covenants. These Lectures on Faith were considered the ?doctrine, ? while the revelations made up the ?covenants? of that inspired book. This special Collector?s Edition of an LDS classic also includes an essay on the history of the lectures, six discussions on the lectures from prominent LDS scholars, a treatise on faith written by Orson Pratt, along with numerous beautiful illustrations by well-known LDS artists. ""Did you know that the Lectures on Faith were published in the forepart of the Doctrine and Covenants in all editions from 1835 until 1921? Although the lectures are not currently published as part of the standard works, it is evident that they were held in high esteem by the Prophet Joseph Smith and those that followed him. President Joseph Fielding Smith said: "These lectures are of great value and should be studied.... I consider them to be of extreme value in the study of the gospel of Jesus Christ, " Bruce R. McConkie has classified the lectures as "some of the best lesson material ever prepared on the Godhead; on the character, perfections, and attributes of God; on faith, miracles, and sacrifice. They can be studied with great profit by all scholars. "The seven lectures in this collection deal with the following subjects: - What is faith? - What is the role of revelation in developing faith? - What are the attributes of God? - Why is it necessary to have a correct knowledge about God's attributes in order to exercise true faith? - What is the true nature of the Godhead and what is God's purpose for man? - What is the role of sacrifice in building the faith needed for eternal life? - What are the effects or results that flow from having true faith?
