The Word of Wisdom (Setting the Record Straight) ebook

by Ph.D.,Steven C. Harper


The Word of Wisdom says to eat meat sparingly and only in times of winter.

The Word of Wisdom says to eat meat sparingly and only in times of winter. I was wondering if this was just because they didn't have refrigerators, or if it was just as applicable today? We certainly never hear prophets talk about this nowadays, so I was wondering if it is still applicable. Notwithstanding, this small volume by Harper is a very good discussion of the Word of Wisdom, its background, development, and interpretation by Latter-day Saints throughout the history of the Church, dealing with common objections to Joseph Smith and his approach to the WofW and other important issues that often come up in any discussion of the Word of Wisdom.

All in all, I thought this was a good book. While not quite what I had hoped for, it was authoritative, accurate, and to the point. Read the pros and cons below.

What I liked about the book:
Quick read without too much blabbering. Short and to the point.
Perfectly accurate historical information from a balanced viewpoint.
Contained a lot of lesser-known information
Good price

What I would like to see improved:
Not enough info on topics I was looking for. I am interested in learning about meat. The Word of Wisdom says to eat meat sparingly and only in times of winter. I was wondering if this was just because they didn't have refrigerators, or if it was just as applicable today? We certainly never hear prophets talk about this nowadays, so I was wondering if it is still applicable.
The little section on caffeine was more of an opinion page than a historical review of the word of wisdom as it applies to caffeine. The author conveniently skipped over TONS of quotes from prophets about caffeine in order to shape his opinion page on why caffeine doesn't matter. I agree that the topic is taken to extremes by many members of the church, but that isn't sufficient justification to skip over the debate entirely.
Little information on wheat as the staff of life. I was interested in learning about why wheat is so important when diets of today all advise against eating too many carbs. Some more scientific information would have been helpful.

I have been rather disappointed by the "Setting the Record Straight" series, such as the text on Emma Smith and the like. Notwithstanding, this small volume by Harper is a very good discussion of the Word of Wisdom, its background, development, and interpretation by Latter-day Saints throughout the history of the Church, dealing with common objections to Joseph Smith and his approach to the WofW and other important issues that often come up in any discussion of the Word of Wisdom.

Harper is a very careful historian of LDS history, and the quality of this volume is on par with the fine quality of his commentary, *Making Sense of the Doctrine and Covenants* which is perhaps the single best work on the Doctrine and Covenants.

For those interested in the Word of Wisdom, this would prove to be the best text to begin with.

This is the best book available on the Word of Wisdom. Some of the books in this series are superficial and less than candid. Not this one. The author knows his stuff and clearly explains what the Word of Wisdom is, how it was understood and applied by Joseph Smith, Brigham Young, and Latter-day Saints today. This is a great read and a bargain at twice the price!
