SALT LAKE CITY The full text of the address offered at the Nov. 2, 2003, Church Educational System fireside by Elder L. Tom Perry of the Quorum of the Twelve is now available here.
The talk, titled "The Scriptures and the Restoration," originated in the BYU Marriott Center and was transmitted to college-age young adults worldwide.
During the address, Elder Perry said through the scriptures the gospel of Jesus Christ is revealed.
"Our love of the scriptures should be paramount if our faith is to be firmly anchored," said Elder Perry. "We should not look upon reading and studying the scriptures as an inconvenience or something we must endure. In the word of God is power and nourishment and life."
