Cowboy Apostle:   The Diaries of Anthony W. Ivins, 1875-1932, Anderson, Elizabeth O.
3 Cowboy Apostle: The Diaries of Anthony W. Ivins, 1875-1932

Anderson, Elizabeth O.New, Signature Books, 2013, Salt Lake City, UT

Hardcover



Brand new hardcover book!

; Anthony W. Ivins (1852-1934) migrated to St. George, Utah, at age nine where he later became an influential civic and ecclesiastical leader. He married Elizabeth A. Snow, daughter of apostle Erastus F. Snow. Ivins was a first cousin of Heber J. Grant, and served as his counselor while Grant was LDS president. Ivins filled several Mormon missions to Mexico and presided as the Juarez, Mexico stake president where he performed post-manifesto marriages. He was appointed by the U.S. government as an Indian agent, and was warmly acquainted with Porfirio Diaz, president of Mexico. Involved in politics in St. George, Ivins held aspirations of running as a Democrat for governor of Utah. In 1907, he was ordained an apostle and later advanced to the First Presidency. Tone, as he called himself, was an accomplished horseman who worked with, and invested in, livestock. He was a game-hunting cowboy who became a statesman for both his country and his expanding religious community.

Though in his correspondence Ivins expressed paramount concern for members of his family, he rarely mentions them in his journals. Rather, his diaries chronicle his business and religious observations including meetings with the Quorum of the Twelve and others. He records meetings of the apostles where decisions were made to remove Church leaders from office who had entered into polygamy after 1904, and details the Church’s dealings with the Mexican government to safeguard the Mormon colonists. There are also discussions where doctrinal principles were clarified. For example, in 1912, Ivins reported that President Joseph F. Smith addressed Brigham Young’s Adam God teachings and affirmed that it was “not a doctrine of the Church.” Ivins clearly loved the ruggedness of outdoor life, as evidenced in his passion for hunting, but was also intrigued with the curiosities at the Utah State Fair, the entertaining showmanship of Buffalo Bill, and the refinement of the theater. Tragedy became commonplace as he recorded vigilante-like justice against Indians and Mexicans who were killed for stealing food, and witnessing the execution of John D. Lee, a once favored son of Mormonism. Appendices of Cowpboy Apostle include Ivins Record Book of Marriage and an essay by Ivins son, H. Grant Ivins titled “Polygamy in Mexico as Practiced by the Mormon Church, 1895-1905.”

The Parallel Book of Mormon  The 1830, 1837, and 1840 Editions, Bench, Curt A. And Joseph Smith
4 The Parallel Book of Mormon The 1830, 1837, and 1840 Editions

Bench, Curt A. And Joseph SmithNew, Smith-Pettit Foundation, 2008, 

Hardcover



; Three separate editions of the Book of Mormon appeared during Joseph Smith’s lifetime. These are the 1830 edition, published in Palmyra, New York; the 1837 edition published in Kirtland, Ohio; and the 1840 edition published in Nauvoo, Illinois. The printing of each of these was supervised by Joseph Smith, who made and authorized corrections and improvements to the text of each.

These were the only three editions Joseph Smith was involved with. In the current publication, the text of all three is reproduced in parallel-column format for comparison, allowing readers to see where corrections and other changes were made during the book's first decade. This is the first time for the three editions to be presented in this format. The text is unchanged from the originals, the eccentricities retained but nevertheless re-typeset for ease in reading and comparing.

Curt A. Bench, bookseller and student of Mormon history for over three decades, provides the publication background for these three landmark editions of this work of scripture. Bench recounts the fascinating history behind the appearance of each new edition, all of them produced under primitive frontier conditions and in the context of criticism from outside and inside the church, all of which made their successful production even more remarkable than otherwise.

5 Approaching Antiquity; Joseph Smith and the Ancient World

Blumell, Lincoln H. & Matthew J. Grey & Andrew H. HedgesNew in New Dust Jacket, RSC/Deseret Book Company, 2015, 

Hardcover



Brand new hardcover book!

; A collection of essays by prominent LDS scholars—including Richard Bushman and David Holland—Approaching Antiquity discusses the interest in the ancient world shared by Joseph Smith and the early Latter-day Saints. Topics include Joseph Smith's fascination with the ancient Americas, his interaction with the Bible, his study of Hebrew and Greek, his reading of Jewish and Christian apocryphal writings, and his work with the Book of Abraham in the context of 19th-century Egyptology. Together, these essays demonstrate that Joseph Smith's interests in antiquity played an important role in his prophetic development as he sought to recover ancient scripture, restore the ancient Church, and bring the Latter-day Saints into fellowship with the sacred past.

Symbols in Stone, Brown, Matthew B. & Paul Thomas Smith
7 Symbols in Stone

Brown, Matthew B. & Paul Thomas SmithNew, Covenant Communications, Inc., 2017, American Fork, UT

Paperback



Brand new softcover book!

; "The Universe is built on symbols, lifting our thoughts from man to God, from earth to heaven, from time to eternity...God teaches with symbols; it is His favorite way of teaching." —Orson F. Whitney

Latter-day Saint doctrine is rich in symbolism, and nowhere do we find greater symbolism than in the temple. By examining the symbols on the Nauvoo, Kirtland, and Salt Lake temples, the authors skillfully demonstrate that "we begin to understand the symbolic language of the Lord which, in turn, prepares us for the symbolism that we will encounter within."

Symbols in Stone: Symbolism on the Early Temples of the Restoration is carefully documented using the scriptures as well as recorded accounts of Latter-day Saints who want to better understand the vital role of temples in the latter days.

10 THE ESSENTIAL PARLEY P. PRATT

Crawley, Peter L.Very Good in Very Good Dust Jacket, Signature Books, Salt Lake City, UT

Hardcover



Cover has some light edge and corner wear.

; One of the first converts to the LDS church, Parley Parker Pratt (1807-57) would eventually become early Mormonism's most famous and widely published defender. Born in western New York, he converted to Mormonism in late 1830 and was called to the Quorum of Twelve Apostles five years later as one of its founding members. He was strong-willed and largely self-educated, as his vitae reflects: he served several missions for the church; participated in Zion's Camp, the militia which marched to Missouri to rescue threatened church members; quarreled with Joseph Smith over finances and narrowly escaped excommunication; founded the Latter-day Saints' Millennial Star in England; married several plural wives in Nauvoo, Illinois; immigrated to the Great Salt Lake valley; and continued to fill additional overseas missions. Best known for his fiery apologetic writings such as A Voice of Warning (1837) , Key to the Science of Theology (1855) , and for his autobiography which was published posthumously in 1874 by his son, who wrote most of it, Pratt nevertheless defined Mormon doctrine and theology for much of the nineteenth century. He was killed in 1857 in Arkansas by the estranged husband of one of his polygamous wives. The husband, an outsider, did not share Pratt's and other Mormons' contempt for civil authority over marriage.

LIFE EVERLASTING -  A Definitive Study of Life after Death, Crowther, Duane S.
12 LIFE EVERLASTING - A Definitive Study of Life after Death

Crowther, Duane S.New, Cedar Fort, Inc., 2006, Springville, UT

Paperback



Brand new softcover, never been read! ; Life Everlasting is a fascinating examination of man's future life from the time of death until his entry into the heavenly realms. The book reaches beyond the commonplace to give profound new insights into the nature of the life to come.

This book examines eyewitness accounts of more than 200 individuals who have ventured into the spirit world and have then returned to tell of their experiences. It also draws extensively from the scriptures and from the discourses of Latter-day Saint leaders. As the evidence of these accounts is analyzed, numerous new understandings are revealed to the reader. Within these pages are vivid descriptions of spirit-world conditions including buildings, landscaping, wearing apparel, organization, occupations, and Church callings. Many instructive descriptions of the amazing capabilities of spirit beings are provided. Of special interest are the vivid descriptions of Jesus Christ as He has appeared to many who have entered into Paradise. The numerous roles of spirit beings who visit the earth, as Gardian Angels and in other capacities, are described in detail. The factors which govern man's time of death are discussed, and the nature of man's "new birth" into the next life is desc! ribed in detail by those who have experienced it.

Life Everlasting peers into the spirit prison and hell and reports conditions in those environments. Then it sweeps forward in time to analyze the nature of the resurrections and final judgment. A careful consideration of the final rewards available to man is made, with detailed and spcific coverage of the fate of the sons of perdition and the destinies of the inhabitants of the telestial, terrestrial and celestial kingdoms. The final chapter is a penetrating explanation of the nature of godhood and exaltation.

Few books have ever combined such a wealth of now concepts and interesting information with the careful presentation, documentation and scholarship of Life Everlasting. Latter-day Saints will find strong evidences which confirm their beliefs in the afterlife. Others, no matter what their religious oriention, will find Life Everlasting to be one of the most far-reaching, comprehensive presentations of life-after-death experiences in print. It is inevitable that this book will continue to be widely read and discussed for many years to come.

13 The First Fifty Years of Relief Society; Key Documents in Latter-day Saint Women's History

Derr, Jill Mulvay & Carol Cornwall Madsen & Kate Holbrook & Matthew J. GrowNew in New Dust Jacket, Church Historian's Press, 2016, Salt Lake City, UT

Hardcover



Brand new hardcover book!

; This collection of original documents explores the fascinating and largely unknown history of the Relief Society in the nineteenth century. The story begins with the founding of the Nauvoo Female Relief Society, and the complete and unabridged minutes of that organization are reproduced in this book for the first time in print. The large majority of the volume covers the lesser-known period after the Relief Society was reestablished in territorial Utah and began to spread to areas as remote as Hawaii and England. Not only did Relief Society women care for their families and the poor, they manufactured and sold goods, went to medical school, gave healing blessings and set apart Relief Society officers, storied grain, built assembly halls, fought for women's suffrage, founded a hospital, defended the practice of plural marriage, and started the Primary and Young Women organizations. Prominent in the documents are the towering figures of Mormon women's history from this period—Emma Smith, Eliza R. Snow, Emmeline B. Wells, Zina D.H. Young, and many others.

Perspectives on Mormon Theology;  Scriptural Theology, Faulconer, James E. &  Joseph M. Spencer
14 Perspectives on Mormon Theology; Scriptural Theology

Faulconer, James E. & Joseph M. SpencerNew, Greg Kofford Books, Inc., 2015, 

Paperback



Brand new softcover book!

; The phrase "theology of scripture" can be understood in two distinct ways. First, theology of scripture would be reflection on the nature of scripture, asking questions about what it means for a person or a people to be oriented by a written text (rather than or in addition to an oral tradition or a ritual tradition). In this first sense, theology of scripture would form a relatively minor part of the broader theological project, since the nature of scripture is just one of many things on which theologians reflect. Second, theology of scripture would be theological reflection guided by scripture, asking questions of scriptural texts and allowing those texts to shape the direction the theologian's thoughts pursue. In this second sense, theology of scripture would be less a part of the larger theological project than a way of doing theology, since whatever the theologian takes up reflectively, she investigates through the lens of scripture. The essays making up this collection reflect attentiveness to both ways of understanding the phrase "theology of scripture." Each essay takes up the relatively un-self-conscious work of reading a scriptural text but then-at some point or another-asks the self-conscious question of exactly what she or he is doing in the work of reading scripture. We have thus attempted in this book (1) to create a dialogue concerning what scripture is for Latter-day Saints, and (2) to focus that dialogue on concrete examples of Latter-day Saints reading actual scripture texts.

; Using a mindset influenced both by scientific training and a deep appreciation of God's love for us, Richard D.

Gee, JohnNew in New Dust Jacket, RSC/BYU Deseret Book Company, 2017, Provo, UT

Hardcover



Brand new hardcover book!

; When the Book of Abraham was first published to the world in 1842, it was published as “a translation of some ancient records that have fallen into [Joseph Smith’s] hands from the catacombs of Egypt, purporting to be the writings of Abraham while he was in Egypt, called ‘The Book of Abraham, Written by his Own Hand, upon Papyrus.’” The resultant record was thus connected with the papyri once owned by Joseph Smith, though which papyrus of the four or five in his possession was never specified. Those papyri would likely interest only a few specialists except that they are bound up in a religious controversy. This controversy covers a number of interrelated issues, and an even greater number of theories have been put forward about these issues. Given the amount of information available, the various theories, and the variety of fields of study the subject requires, misunderstandings and misinformation often prevail. Introduction to the Book of Abraham makes reliable information accessible to the general reader.

The Council of Fifty  What the Records Reveal about Mormon History, Grow, Matthew J. & R. Eric Smith
20 The Council of Fifty What the Records Reveal about Mormon History

Grow, Matthew J. & R. Eric SmithNew in New Dust Jacket, Religious Studies Center, Brigham Young University, 2017, 

Hardcover



Brand new hardcover book!

; Three months before his death, Joseph Smith established the Council of Fifty, a confidential group that he believed would protect the Latter-day Saints in their political rights and one day serve as the government of the kingdom of God. The Council of Fifty operated under the leadership of Joseph Smith and then Brigham Young, playing a key role in Joseph Smith's presidential campaign and in preparing for the Mormon exodus to the West. The council's minutes had never been available until they were published by the Joseph Smith Papers in September 2016, meaning that the council has been the subject of intense speculation for 170 years.In this book of short essays, fifteen leading Mormon scholars explore how the newly available minutes alter and enhance our understanding of Mormon history. The scholars narrate and analyze the contributions of the records of the council to key questions, such as Joseph Smith's views of earthly and heavenly governments; the presidential campaign; Mormon relationships with American Indians; explorations of possible settlements sites, such as Texas and California; the "lost teachings" of Latter-day Saint leaders of that era; and the leadership style of Brigham Young.

The fifteen essays in this collection are as follows: Richard Lyman Bushman, "The Separatist Impulse in the Nauvoo Council of Fifty"; Richard E. Turley Jr., "Injustices Leading to the Creation of the Council of Fifty"; Spencer W. McBride, "The Council of Fifty and Joseph Smith's Presidential Ambitions"; Patrick Q. Mason, "God and the People Reconsidered: Further Reflections on Theodemocracy in Early Mormonism"; Benjamin E. Park, "The Council of Fifty and the Perils of Democratic Governance"; Nathan B. Oman, "'We the People of the Kingdom of God': Constitution Writing in the Council of Fifty"; Gerrit J. Dirkmaat, "Lost Teachings of Joseph Smith, Brigham Young, and Other Church Leaders"; R. Eric Smith, "Insights into Mormon Record-Keeping Practices from the Council of Fifty Minutes"; Matthew J. Grow and Marilyn Bradford, "'To Carry Out Joseph's Measures Is Sweeter to Me Than Honey': Brigham Young and the Council of Fifty"; Jeffrey D. Mahas, "American Indians and the Nauvoo-Era Council of Fifty"; Matthew C. Godfrey, "A Monument to the Saints' Industry: The Nauvoo House and the Council of Fifty, 1845-46"; Christopher James Blythe, "'With Full Authority to Build Up the Kingdom of God on Earth': Lyman Wight on the Council of Fifty"; Richard E.
