This work is the single best Church book written outside the scriptures and anything produced from the Prophet Joseph. But that is all. It you think this hyperbole, read it. "A New Witness for the Articles of Faith" is phenomenal and a crowning work of one of the greatest writers of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Elder Bruce R. McConkie, one sustained as a prophet, seer, and revelatory as a member of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles is still frequently quoted and otherwise referenced in Church curriculum. Doctrinally, it almost stands alone. There are very few books in these Latter-day that compare.
Of his many books that I have read, this is by far his best. A must read for all!
