Elder Bruce R. McConkie's landmark series on the life of Christ is available in this best-selling eBook series examines the mission, ministry, and accomplishments of our Savior, and includes six powerful eBook volumes.
First, I have this complete series in paperback. I have only a few in eBook format that were sold individually. Second, I never really read the first book of the series (The Promised Messiah) but I have only scanned over and referenced that book. I kept feeling like I wanted to hurry and get to where He was born. The last in the series (The Millennial Messiah) I have read half of and I got side-tracked when I was called as bishop. It is however a great book to help grasp the ushering in of the millennium. Most of my review centers on the four books entitled "The Mortal Messiah" (1 thru 4).
My best description of these works are expressed in my phrase "Sheer Power expressed in Poetry". Never have I read more stirring powerful descriptions, and yet they are so eloquent that it is often like sublime poetry. I hesitate to compare and contrast it with "Jesus The Christ" by Talmage because many will think less of me when I say, if I was tired, I could not stay awake reading that book. While full of great information, I found it difficult to unlock and absorb. At least that was the case at the period in my life when I gave a mighty effort to study that book.
The Messiah series by contrast was the opposite. It was difficult for me to put down, At times I would just drop the book to my lap and quietly ponder the power of what I had just read. I personally do not see how anyone could read those books and not strengthen their testimony of the Savior and gain and deepened appreciation for Him and His life. Additionally, you cannot read those books and feel the out-pouring of the Spirit without knowing of they had to be authored by an apostle of the the Lord Jesus Christ. You come to know that the author intimately knew the Messiah he wrote about.
I will let you decide if you can read substantial works as eBooks. I am 63 and I am very tech savvy, but for some reason I can't quite get beyond quick reads in eBook format on my iPad. As eBooks they of course have the advantage of linking every reference to scripture right to that scripture with a touch.
This series is a must for every member who has even the beginnings of a library.
