In this book the author makes a truly unique delivery of his faith in the Gospel restored, which also becomes a fairly thorough excursion into the LDS faith. Doctrines, principles, practices, culture, outreach, lifestyle, and church history are all touched upon from a very personal and likely relatable perspective to the LDS reader. Taken as a whole, these essays form a compelling narrative for the restoration of the Church of Jesus Christ in these latter days, and the active hand of the Lord in its formation and leadership. Each of the 365 reasons are written as an essay of, on average, about 500 words. There is no particular order that they should be read in, each is a stand-alone tenet of faith, grouped under section heads. Divided into five sections, Cragg begins with those reasons that are Crucial to his faith, forming what he considers an essential framework of eternal truths. Next are Doctrinal reasons, particularly those that are exclusively LDS in their standpoint and scriptural harmony. Foretold reasons bring together prophetic pronunciations with their now-historic or currently unfolding reality, played out in the latter day work of the restoration. Almost half the book is classified as Confirming reasons, reasons that individually and collectively form a strong basis of continuous affirmation to the author. The fifth section is written as a singular chapter, under a Core reason. It’s a top-ten listing of doctrinal contributions restored or revealed to the Prophet Joseph Smith for the salvation of mankind. This chapter could be seen as a summary (albeit a very limited summary) of the merciful, comprehensive, inclusive, exquisite Plan of Salvation, the Gospel of Jesus Christ. This book was written to build faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and His living reality, and to acknowledge and build trust in those He has called as prophets throughout human history. Scripturally documented, the reading of should present a spiritual experience, a renaissance of faith, a secure confidence in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints as the authorized Kingdom of God on the earth today.
