B. H. Roberts was a prolific and influential writer and speaker in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints at the turn of the 20th century.

Madsen, “the most prolific interpreter of Mormonism’s first century.” This article provides Elder Roberts quotes about topics such as scriptures, salvation, and the Church’s history.
