A religion, to be worth while, must give satisfactory answers to the great questions of life: What am I? Whence came I? What is the object of this life? and what is my destiny? True, we walk by faith, and not by sight, but yet the eye of faith must have some light by which to see. Added Upon is an effort to give in brief an outline of ''the scheme of things,'' ''the ways of God to men'' as taught by the Gospel of Christ and believed in by the Latter-day Saints; and to justify and praise these ways, by a glance along the Great Plan, from a point in the distant past to a point in the future--not so far away, it is to be hoped.

I just finished this book that I found in my mothers bookshelf. It was given to my father by his parents in 1944. Since my mother passed away I've been missing her greatly and this story comforts me in those times of sadness. For the Latter-Day-Saint it is a beautiful explanation of our beliefs...for the non member, it is a gift of the promises that God has given and an awakening to the truth and where to find it.
