Some of the books I recommend are the Bible & the Record of Nephi, Zenos, Zenock, Ether and Mormon for getting a very large picture of what we are doing here and what has happened to the Hebrew people; The Making of America for understanding how America came to be; articles and books on this site; Shakespeare unabridged to understand the ridiculousness of human nature and motivation to change; The Whole New Mind for a new appreciation of all of our talents; The Element for seeing the potential of our abilities; The Fourth Turning gives you a picture of cycles in our american history; Understanding the Times gives a christian perspective on worldviews. The list could go on... Maybe I'll add more another time.
Why do we study?
To come to know our Creator and receive vision and direction from Him for Why we specifically are here.
It's the Hebrew Way: Receiving and Living Mission
