The Lord's injunction to “seek. . . out of the best books words of wisdom; to seek learning, even by study and also by faith” (D&C 88:118) teaches that acquiring education is an important part of God's eternal plan.
But what kind of education is an important part of God's eternal plan. But what kind of education should be sought? Should learning be limited to spiritual subjects or expanded to embrace secular study? Are scholarship and discipleship compatible?
Learning in the Light of Faith brings together six outstanding lectures that address these and other important questions and that offer insight into finding balance in the pursuit of knowledge.
The lectures suggest that an understanding of secular things is desirable as long as it is tempered by attributed of meekness, humility, and consecration.
They teach that accomplished scholars are valuable in the Lord's kingdom, but only if they have a corresponding commitment to be true, faithful, and obedient disciples of Christ.
Motivating and inspiring, Learning in the Light of Faith will be appreciated by students and scholars at all levels, not only by those pursuing a formal education but also by those who make learning an ongoing part of their lives.
