Discourses of Brigham Young, wisely chosen by Dr. John A. Widtsoe from the innumerable sermons President Young delivered during his long, useful life as leader in the Church, affords concentrated reading on vital phases of Mormon doctrine. The first chapter includes excerpts which define the gospel of Jesus Christ the second, the Godhead the third, communication between God and man and so on through forty,two chapters which also include such topics as happiness and social enjoyment, education, the family, and many more essential tenets of the Latter,day Satin belief.
The book has proved its usefulness through reprinting. In fact, it is a staple in L. D. S. Church books which should be in every Latter,day Saint home library. Discourses of Brigham Young is an invaluable source book.
