    "I was looking for the best must-read non-fiction LDS books. I found Jesus the Christ. This is a book by James E. Talmage, which talks about the life of Jesus Christ.

    "For the people who are interested in LDS church and want to broaden their knowledge about that topic, "Lectures on Faith" arguably is one of the best books ever written about that subject. It is an honest and straightforward book which goes straight to the topic and explains everything concisely and accurately. "

    "I stand by what I said the last thing, the because religious book is the bible. When people start to interpret in the own way they put in influences and I can say the same for this too, it almost seems to have an agenda. I definitely wouldn't say this is the best must-read non-fiction LDS book"

    "I have to preface this by saying I am curious, but not a part of the religion. I found the book to be about an interesting figure, but it felt overly polished in some ways. Much of it was quite a slow read, but it was still pretty good."
