About the Book

"The Mormon Doctrine of Deity" is a seminal work with the aid of B. H. Roberts, a distinguished early twentieth-century leader and theologian within The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church). This book explores and clarifies the specific Mormon perspective on the character of God. In the book, Roberts delves into core doctrines of the LDS faith, in particular the notion in a divine hierarchy known as the Godhead. The LDS Church teaches that the Father, the Son (Jesus Christ), and the Holy Spirit are separate and wonderful personages, united in purpose but no longer in substance. This idea sets Mormon theology apart from mainstream Christian ideals and is an important recognition of Roberts' paintings. Roberts also examines the concept of human capability for godhood, regularly summarized with the phrase "As guy is, God as soon as become; as God is, man may also turn out to be." This idea, called theosis or deification, is explored in-intensity as it relates to the character and potential of humanity inside the Mormon faith. "The Mormon Doctrine of Deity" stays a vast contribution to the theological discourse inside the LDS Church and serves as a useful resource for each believers and scholars searching for to understand the unique teachings and perspectives of Mormonism on the nature of God and the everlasting capacity of humanity.

About Author

B. H. Roberts

Brigham Henry Roberts (March 13, 1857 – September 27, 1933) was a Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church) historian, politician, and leader. He independently wrote the six-volume Comprehensive History of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and edited the seven-volume History of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Roberts also wrote Studies of the Book of Mormon, which was released posthumously and explored the Book of Mormon's authenticity as an ancient record. Because of his polygamy, Roberts was denied a seat in the United States Congress. Roberts was born in Warrington, Lancashire, England, the son of alcoholic blacksmith and ship plater Benjamin Roberts and seamstress Ann Everington. Both of his parents converted to the LDS Church the year he was born. Then Benjamin Roberts abandoned his family. "My childhood was a nightmare; my boyhood was a tragedy," Roberts later wrote. B. H. Roberts and a sister departed England in April 1866, aided by the Perpetual Emigrating Fund. They boarded a wagon train in Nebraska and walked—barefoot for much of the way—to Salt Lake City, where they were met by their mother, who had preceded them.
