Latter-day Saint philosopher James E. Faulconer’s Made Harder series raises many more questions than it answers. And that is precisely the point. Faulconer wrote The Doctrine & Covenants Made Harder on the premise that our scripture study is only as good as the questions we bring to the endeavor. The book consists almost entirely of challenging questions (with occasional commentary for clarity’s sake) because, in Faulconer’s experience, questions themselves are the key to reflective and deep scripture study. This book is intended to make reading harder—and therefore fresher—by priming your pondering pump with insightful study questions. The Doctrine & Covenants Made Harder is the perfect tool to improve personal and family scripture study, sacrament meeting talks, or Sunday School lessons.
So much of modern life is geared to finding faster and easier ways to do the same old things. The Made Harder series is proof that making things easier does not always make them better.

James E. Faulconer (PhD, Pennsylvania State University) is professor of philosophy and holder of the Richard L. Evans Chair of Religious Understanding at Brigham Young University. His other books include Scripture Study: Tools and Suggestions; Faith, Philosophy, Scripture; and The Life of Holiness: Notes and Reflections on Romans 1, 5–8.Review:
“The Made Harder books will give readers a feel for how scripture actually suggests questions about itself, but more importantly, they remind us that scripture also engages us, calls to us, and not merely the other way around. Faulconer shows that to read scripture through questioning is to make ourselves available for scripture to question us in return.” --Jacob T. Baker, editor of Mormonism at the Crossroads of Philosophy and Theology
