    Jesus the Christ is based on the doctrines, ideology and tenets of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS), or the Mormons. It is a critical study and biography of the life of Christ from his pre-mortal existence, through his continuing mortal ministry, and into his role at the end of days. This book is like the Book of Mormon, another testament that the LDS church is a Christ-based, Christian church. If in doubt, seek it out, and decide for yourself.

This book is like the Book of Mormon, another testament that the LDS church is a Christ-based, Christian church. If in doubt, seek it out, and decide for yourself. Parts may be unfamiliar to mainstream Catholicism, and Protestantism, but the position of Jesus Christ as the leader and head of the LDS church, according to Mormon belief, is undeniable. If you have intellectual difficulty with these concepts, try a more open-minded approach. If you have a challenge of faith, then pray with an open heart and a contrite spirit for personal guidance and peaceful understanding. The author, James E. Talmage, was a very studious scholar and author, so this is not an easy read. Dedication and steadfastness must accompany any attempt to finish and digest this book.

    A friend from a faith other than my own gave me this book in 1983 before I left to do volunteer service. Jesus the Christ is the most complete compendium (that I know of) of the life and teachings of Jesus Christ found in the New Testament. John the Baptist, Herod Antipus, and virtually any subject you would want to study about New Testament subjects is found in this marvelous book.

I still could not take it off my currently reading shelf because it was too heartbreaking for me to take it down even though I could go years between picking it up. On a wonderful challenge from a girlfriend, I became reacquainted with this book, quite a few months ago. This time I decided to listen to an audio edition on my iPhone. It was still slow going at times, especially in the beginning, but once I got through the first four or five chapters I was hooked. The chapters that covered the end of Christ's life: The Atonement, Crucifixion, and Resurrection were incredibly moving. I found myself in tears several times while listening. Putting on makeup, scrubbing dishes and trying to match up widow socks had suddenly become a spiritual experience. It felt so important and meaningful for me as a Christian and LDS woman to read a book that took such an in-depth look at the life of Jesus Christ. There was so much that I learned about the background and history of Jesus that I never knew before. I just hope that I can retain part of what I learned. Most of all, if this book has not brought a powerful change in how I live my life the fault is all my own. This book was truly beautiful and inspiring in every way. I'm so happy that I can finally move this book to the read shelf and hope that it will make another appearance someday in currently reading.

I’m nowhere near eloquent enough to do it justice. Suffice to say, besides gaining a greater knowledge of the chronological events in the life of Jesus Christ, I gained a stronger testimony of Him, and have a renewed commitment to be more like Him in my everyday life. He was the ultimate example of kindness, love, charity, and obedience. “I stand all amazed at the love Jesus offers me,
 Confused at the grace that so fully he proffers me.
 I tremble to know that for me he was crucified, 
That for me, a sinner, he suffered, he bled and died. I marvel that he would descend from his throne divine 
To rescue a soul so rebellious and proud as mine,
 That he should extend his great love unto such as I,
 Sufficient to own, to redeem, and to justify. I think of his hands pierced and bleeding to pay the debt!
 Such mercy, such love and devotion can I forget?
 No, no, I will praise and adore at the mercy seat, 
Until at the glorified throne I kneel at his feet. Oh, it is wonderful that he should care for me Enough to die for me! Oh, it is wonderful, wonderful to me!” (LDS Hymnal page 193 - Text and music: Charles H. Gabriel, 1856-1932)

    This is a classic I will read again and again. The insights I gleaned about Christ will be forever in my heart and mind. I’m so glad I finished just before Easter as it made my celebration of Holy Week that much more centered on Christ and with a deeper understanding of Him.

    I initially started reading this for a project in college, but never got past chapter 5. I am so glad I finally completed my challenge to myself years ago to read this! While the language takes a bit getting used to (maybe not for others, but for me), I really enjoyed the in-depth study of the Savior's life and His experiences and teachings in the New Testament. The scripture "feast on the words of Christ" really came to mind as I thirsted and feasted on these chapters every morning.

I also think having an older, more experienced mind helped to understand and appreciate the written words of Christ, explained by Talmage. I think any Christian would truly benefit from reading, studying, and praying with this book as a companion to the New Testament! There are so many questions that are answered and doctrines that become so clear. Many times, I wondered how the world got so confused with Christianity and its doctrine when it is so simple!!! Loved the book and look forward to reading it again in years to come. Hopefully it won't take 18 more!!!

    Rather than write an in depth review of Jesus the Christ, I’ll just explain why I only gave it one star not five. First, I’m a little picky about the books that I read and because I’m useually reading at least six at once I tend to not complete the ones that I wouldn’t reccomend. In my ratings one star means that if you are thinking about reading it then go a head I think that’s a fine idea, but if you are coming to me for recomendations I’ve got other priorities for your reading list. This is th Rather than write an in depth review of Jesus the Christ, I’ll just explain why I only gave it one star not five. First, I’m a little picky about the books that I read and because I’m useually reading at least six at once I tend to not complete the ones that I wouldn’t reccomend. In my ratings one star means that if you are thinking about reading it then go a head I think that’s a fine idea, but if you are coming to me for recomendations I’ve got other priorities for your reading list. This is the case for Jesus the Christ. In my reading the book does several things well, but there are other books that do everything it does better. I’ll go through those in a second. First let me note that because Jesus the Christ has been part of the “missionary library” for more than a generation there it has value as a subtext for much of present mormon though. As historical, linguistic and cultural contextualization of the Jesus of the Mormon cannon and of Mormon theology more broadly the book is quite good. However Talmadge was a scientist, and the information in his book has aged. I would recommend Nibley and Holzapfel to Mormons, also Givens as authors whose body of work give Mormon theology clear and meaningful context in the narrative of human history which reflects every thing we’ve learned since Talmadge. This recommendation is rather emphatic, because, to paraphrase Holzapfel, we’ve just learned a lot since JC was first written. As a book that non mormons can turn to for understanding of the theology of the restoration in a historical and cultural context Jesus the Christ is not excellent. The book is written for well read members of the Church. I’d steer readers toward Bushman’s Rough Stone Rolling. For fire breathing testimony apostolic testimony from mormon prophets I’d recommend any number of sections of the doctrine and covenants, as for more misty-eyed and gentle but no less apostolic writing I’d recommend Eyring’s To Draw Nearer to God. For a thought provoking and life changing discussion of atonement and forgiveness I’d say the cannon of Dostoyevsky (as far as it is translated correctly) does far more far better - my-five-star-read-this-or-die recommendation here is Brothers Karamozov, Pevear and Volokhonsky translation.

    I read this for the first time on my mission--and just in time, because even though I had studied the gospels in Seminary, this book lays out so clearly the complete life and ministry of the Savior. The best part is the footnotes--just knowing the little details makes the life of the Savior that much more real and close, like you were there. So many things about Nazareth and Judea sounded like Paraguay to me that on a long walk through strange places (15 miles a day sometimes) I could look aroun I read this for the first time on my mission--and just in time, because even though I had studied the gospels in Seminary, this book lays out so clearly the complete life and ministry of the Savior.

So many things about Nazareth and Judea sounded like Paraguay to me that on a long walk through strange places (15 miles a day sometimes) I could look around and say, "This is like a road Jesus walked on." This book definitely helped me solidify a growing testimony that I could bear to the people of Paraguay. I highly recommend it to missionaries and to anyone who teaches a Sunday School class.

    I have never been able to gain such a deep understanding of the New Testament as I have viewing it through the eyes of this great prophet. Jesus Christ's mortal experiences have been brought to life for me. I reverence my Savior even more and understand more of His divinity.

    Seldom do I take a year to read a book. In this case, I am glad I did. As part of a study group we undertook a chapter a week to read, study, and discuss; I would recommend this to everyone attempting a serious study of the book. It is not a read cover-to-cover type book. It would be more correctly classified as a textbook, meant to be taken in in small doses, contemplated, and then moving on.

Yes, his vocabulary is challenging. His sentences are long, complex, and semi-colon ridden (and correctly used each time. As an English teacher, I appreciate such things!) He is so worth the effort. I have grown to love his humor--yes, it is there--his brilliant, but cutting insults to those worthy of them, and his analytical mind. I have read the same New Testament he did, but he has brought such insight to the life of Christ that I often wondered where my mind was when I read it. Even though this was written a hundred years ago, he is such a great teacher that I had "aha moments" nearly weekly. He even empowered me to disagree with him a couple of times (the benefit of 100 years of scholarship he didn't have), that I would never have dared beforehand. In fact, I am contemplating reading Edersheims' Life of Jesus the Messiah, a book he quotes from often. Something that would have been well beyond me with its 1100 pages. But now, after Talmage, maybe I can do it; or at least read sections of it. Jesus the Christ has become my go-to reference when teaching the New Testatment. His ability to synthesize the gospels into a whole brings new meaning to the sometimes choppy reading that the different gospels present. Will we ever see his like again: scholarship, scientific approach, spirituality, and literary ability in one author? I hope so, but haven't seen it yet.

Talmage in his strong scriptural experience was able to point out simple passages that tied into so many other things. It was amazing. This book is very properly named because ever word in it is not just a testimony of the need for a Christ but that Jesus was/is that Christ. As Dr. Talmage taught me about Jesus I saw that he was no ordinary man. Jesus Christ was the son of the everlasting Father of Creation. Jesus Christ is the only hope to ever be with and become like The Almighty God. After the author spends 735 pages showing the magisty and power that is in the man who's birth marked the center of our timeline, he shows the hope of all Christians: "This earth shall pass to its glorified and celestialized condition, an eternal abode for the exalted sons and daughters of God. Forever to reign, kings and priests to the Most High, redeemed, sanctified, and exalted through their Lord and God JESUS THE CHRIST."

I got sick in December and then again in January (flu A, flu B, sinus inf.) and didn't feel like doing much for weeks. So, I read...and read and read some more and finally finished it.

    Getting ready to reread this amazing book. It's been 13 years, and I believe I can get more insight during the 2nd reading. Update! I just finished. It took me 18 months to complete, but I took the time to really absorb. It was worth it, Talmage is mind boggling with the amount of knowledge he placed in the pages. This book is one of the best scriptorial resources.

While many/most? of the scriptures referenced are included in the text, I am sure that reading all of the scriptures cited while reading the corresponding commentary would be a great practice and experience, too. Written at the beginning of the 20th century, the language is often different from what we use today. And Talmage was a great scholar, so I used the dictionary app on my phone a fair bit. The edition we have isn't listed here on Goodreads. It is a leather bound volume, much thinner than all the others because of the paper used, even though it is 804 pages. My husband's grandmother gave him the book in 1975 before his LDS mission. It has gone with 4 of our children on their missions. And now I've read it. It's such a lovely edition, it's too bad it isn't published in this form anymore.

A well-known anecdote in the LDS world claims that a visiting general authority piled a table with popular scriptural commentaries, discussing their different merits, before abruptly flinging them all to the ground with a sweep of his arm and replacing them with the Standard Works...and Talmage. In popular Mormon culture this book straddles the line that separates the canon from other books. Written in a room within the Salt Lake Temple, ratified by all of the Brethren, and containing a serious quantity of citations and references for its time, JTC is considered by many to be near-scripture. My apologies for the elitism here, but the average rank-and-file Mormon considers reading JTC in its entirety as the pinnacle of acceptable LDS scholarship. My only contention with the book is its well-noted reliance on the works of Farrar, Geikie, and Edersheim, three Protestant writers from the Victorian era. A lot of time has passed since Talmage, and many lifetimes of serious, but accessible scholarship have taken place since then (and I'm not talking about McConkie's stilted derivatives of nearly every Talmage work). Look up just about anything coming out of BYU in the last 20 years for an updated, albeit orthodox treatment of the life of Christ.

    While the New Testament is understandably the foundation for our understanding Christ's life, there is so much that is easily missed without more context of the history and understanding of the culture itself of the time and place.

I've always loved the teachers at church who have gone into more detail about what was going on at that time and with the people Jesus was speaking directly to because it helps me better understand the full message. It's easy and very common to take all his teachings as individual vignettes, separate and isolated and read with current worldviews, but that removes a lot of the full meaning behind them. I love this book for giving invaluable historical and cultural context to the records of Jesus' life. While it's dense and can be a bit hard to get through, it's because it gives so much more meaning and weight to the original accounts of Jesus' life in the first four books of the New Testament (which, it's important to keep in mind, were also written for a specific purpose and audience by those authors as well).

    I read "Jesus the Christ" while serving my mission. It's an in-depth look at the life of Jesus Christ, and James E. Talmage uses not only verses from the Bible, but also cultural and historical facts of the time as well as The Book of Mormon. To say this book helped me understand my Savior even more is a huge understatement.

    We have been reading this together as a Relief Society this year. We have a celebration coming up in September and I'm glad I was able to finish in time. Even though I took my time reading, I still feel like there are so many things that are hard for me to grasp and remember, but I did learn along the way {just don't quiz me!} Especially loved the notes at the end of each chapter. Reading about his life and ministry is a great way to feel closer to the Savior.

    I thought it was a difficult book to read initially, but absolutely cannot get enough of it now! I have to force myself to put it down so I can fully absorb what I have read. Although I'm only on Chapter 15, I find that instead of reading further, I will read portions of it over and over to more completely put the new understanding of what I've read about the life of Jesus into perspective to what I knew before. This is an incredibly revealing book in the life of Jesus Christ and I love it.

    I just finished reading this along with my individual study of the New Testament. It is truly a remarkable experience to study the Savior's life in such depth. The Savior is more real and understood by me with each reading of this book and I look forward to picking it up again in the future. It is well worth the effort!

    I've read this book two times before on my own, and just finished it again; this time reading it aloud with my husband each night. My love for the Savior increases each and every time I read it. This is a book that everyone should read if they have a desire to draw closer to Jesus Christ and develop a deeper, more personal relationship with Him.

    This is a detailed explanation of Jesus Christ. It answered many questions I had after reading the Bible. I happened to read Chapter 7, 8 & 9 Christmas eve and Christmas day, these chapters take you through the Mary's conception of Jesus through his birth. I also had great timing to read about the last super, the trial, the death, burial and the resurrection of Christ as we approach Easter. This is a detailed explanation of Jesus Christ.

    First read this book 30 years ago. I thought a re-read this year is in order. 42 chapters in all so at the rate of 1 chapter per week I will have completed within the year. I love the Lord Jesus Christ and look forward to drawing closer to Him. A most excellent work about the greatest man who ever lived.

    This is the source of my testimony of the Savior, my vision of His majesty and the reality of the power of His redemption. It truly is scripture, as much as the New Testament. It is my first source for study and accuracy of individual accounts.
