2 The Blueprint of Christ's Church

Callister, Tad R.New in New dust jacket, Deserert book, 2015, Salt Lake City, UT

Hardcover



Brand new hardcover book!

;

A strong testimony requires a solid foundation. This is especially true in our day, when we have so much access to information from so many sources, both reliable and spurious. With the numerous voices competing for our attention, how can we avoid being "carried about with every wind of doctrine" (Eph. 4:14)?

In The Blueprint's of Christ's Church, Tad R. Callister provides a thoughtful, systematic explanation of foundational gospel principles, tying them to Jesus Christ and demonstrating how the "blueprint" of the original Church of Jesus Christ matches the structure of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Seasoned Church members and new converts alike will benefit from this "refresher course." The carefully reasoned, scripture-based summaries of a variety of basic principles offer a great resource for parents, missionaries, and Church leaders and teachers.

THE ESSENTIAL BRIGHAM YOUNG, Cambell, Eugene E.
3 THE ESSENTIAL BRIGHAM YOUNG

Cambell, Eugene E.New in New dust jacket, Signature Books, Salt Lake City, UT

Hardcover



Brand new hardcover book! Never been read! ; After converting to Mormonism in 1832, Brigham Young (1801-77) quickly rose to prominence and was called to the Quorum of Twelve Apostles within three years. He personally directed the highly successful 1839 proselyting mission to Great Britain, and he was appointed president of the Twelve Apostles the following year. In 1846-47 he oversaw the epic colonization of the Intermountain West. Self-educated and preoccupied with the day-to-day business of his widespread empire, Young rarely found time to read. But he delivered hundreds of lively, extemporaneous sermons which blended common sense with theological speculation. Such homespun treatises carried an immediacy that was absent from the philosophically-oriented studies of his ecclesiastical colleague Orson Pratt, though, at the same time, Young's speeches could be unfocused and contradictory. ; Classics in Mormon Thought Series No. 3; 6" x 9"; 280 pages; 1560850108,

4 THE ESSENTIAL PARLEY P. PRATT

Crawley, Peter L.New in New dust jacket, Signature Books, Salt Lake City, UT

Hardcover



Brand new hardcover book! Never been read! ; 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. ; Classics in Mormon Thought Series No. 1; 6" x 9"; 268 pages; 0941214842,

Eliza -  The Life And Faith Of Eliza R. Snow, Davidson, Karen Lynn; Derr, Jill Mulvay
5 Eliza - The Life And Faith Of Eliza R. Snow

Davidson, Karen Lynn; Derr, Jill MulvayNew in New dust jacket, Deserert book, 2013, Salt Lake City, UT

Hardcover



Brand new hardcover book! ; Eliza R. Snow is one of the most revered women in the history of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. We hear stories of her faith and strength, and we sing her beloved hymns. She was fondly known as "Zion's Poetess" and also as "Presidentess," because of her leadership of Relief Society and her role in forming and directing organizations for young women and children. She has remained a legend for generations of Latter-day Saints, but we know less about her "variegated life," as she described it—the personal joys and sorrows brought about by unfolding events in the young Church of which she was a part.
This intimate look at Eliza R. Snow, by authors Karen Lynn Davidson and Jill Mulvay Derr, reveals a more private side of this extraordinary woman. She emerges as a bright young poet in Ohio, a new convert to the restored Church, a seamstress, and a sharer in the persecutions and hardships of the early Saints. We see a member of the households of Joseph Smith and Brigham Young, a dedicated temple worker, and a traveling Relief Society president with a zeal for teaching the gospel.
Her delight in nature, her love for family and friends, and her outlook of hope for the cause of Zion are reflected here through selections from some of her best poems. Photographs, artifacts, and personal letters add visual beauty to this inspiring introduction to her fascinating life.

Hardcover



Brand new hardcover book! Never been read! ; "What I'm talking about is knowledge. Knowledge is lived, not forgiven. ... It's an old Druid idea but an interesting one. Knowledge can't be forgiven. We can be forgiven for our deeds, maybe for our thoughts. But once you know something, there's no forgiveness because there's no unknowing. " —Toom TaggartFinding the church archivist dead in the temple complex was somewhat awkward for the RLDS church hierarchy. What was the archivist doing in the temple in the middle of the night and what was he doing with President Fred M. Smith's declaration of supreme directional control? For the public relations department, this was all a day's work—something not so very difficult to explain away with a few carefully worded phrases. That would have been that, had the director of church education, erstwhile philosopher Toom Taggart, not smelled something rotten on the second floor. Alternately suspenseful and humorous, The Angel Acronym romps through the corridors of religious orthodoxy and the pages of history to probe the perplexities of religious truth, public image, and a bureaucratic mindset. ; 6" x 9"; 250 pages; 156085166x,

Paperback



Brand new softcover book!

; Mothers have an immeasurable influence and a significant responsibility in raising up young men and women who are prepared to further the work of the Lord. This unique resource includes 12 training chapters for moms of prospective missionaries, all written by mothers who have sent children on missions (and some by mothers who have also served as mission presidents wives). Whether you have young children and are hoping to begin the mission training process early or you have less than a year to pull all the pieces together, here is the good news: the path of preparing a child for a mission begins wherever you are. Chapters on topics such as fostering good daily habits, developing relationship skills, being resilient, and recognizing the Spirit shed light on what future missionaries need to know, what they need to do, and what they need to be.

Traditions of the Fathers: The Book of Mormon as History, Gardner, Brant A.
8 Traditions of the Fathers: The Book of Mormon as History

Gardner, Brant A.New, Greg Kofford Books, Inc., 2015, 

Paperback



Brand new softcover book!

;

The focus of the Book of Mormon is unquestionably on the things of God. Similar to the Bible, its sermons and explications of religious principles are presented against the framework of the story of a people. It is a story that covers a thousand years. In this book Brant Gardner looks around and behind the religious purposes of the book and teases out how those thousand years of Book of Mormon history correspond to those same years in the geographic and cultural context where they most plausibly took place.

Gardner works through the Book of Mormon chronologically, examining how events in the Book of Mormon reflect the greater historical and cultural developments happening around them at the same time. Gardner asks and answers questions against particular historical backdrops. Why does Nephi appear to be so Christian so long before Christ, and why does his particular time period in Jerusalem help answer that question? Why do Nephi apostate groups from different times appear to adopt the same religion? Why does the Book of Mormon end around A.D. 400? Why not earlier or later? The answers are developed by looking at the Book of Mormon as history in the context of what has become known of Mesoamerican history. Along the way, Gardner also looks at the problem of anachronisms, DNA, and some popular "proofs" of the Book of Mormon that need to be abandoned.

Joseph Smith’s Polygamy: Toward a Better Understanding, Hales, Brian C. and Laura H. Hales
9 Joseph Smith’s Polygamy: Toward a Better Understanding

Hales, Brian C. and Laura H. HalesNew, Kofford Books, 2015, Salt Lake City, UT

Paperback



Brand new softcover book!

; In the last several years a wealth of information has been published on Joseph Smith's practice of polygamy. For some who were already well aware of this aspect of early Mormon history, the availability of new research and discovered documents has been a wellspring of further insight and knowledge into this topic. For others who are learning of Joseph’s marriages to other women for the first time, these books and online publications (including the LDS Church's recent Gospel Topics essays on the subject) can be both an information overload and a challenge to one's faith.

In this short volume, Brian C. Hales (author of the 3-volume Joseph Smith’s Polygamy set) and Laura H. Hales wade through the murky waters of history to help bring some clarity to this episode of Mormonism’s past, examining both the theological explanations of the practice and the accounts of those who experienced it first hand. As this episode of Mormon history involved more than just Joseph and his first wife Emma, this volume also includes short biographies of the 36 women who were married to the Prophet but whose stories of faith, struggle, and courage have been largely forgotten and ignored over time. While we may never fully understand the details and reasons surrounding this practice, Brian and Laura Hales provide readers with an accessible, forthright, and faithful look into this challenging topic so that we can at least come toward a better understanding.

Harris, James P.New in New dust jacket, Signature Books, Salt Lake City, UT

Hardcover



Brand new hardcover book! Never been read! ; Latter-day Saints were stunned in 1911 to learn that the interior of the Salt Lake temple had been secretly photographed and that perpetrators were demanding a $100,000 ransom for the photos. As church leaders considered their options, former University of Utah president James E. Talmage proposed that the First Presidency commission its own photos, which they did, authorizing Talmage to write his landmark House of the Lord. As the manuscript and photos were being readied for press, the presidency appointed the forty-nine-year-old educator to the Quorum of Twelve Apostles. This was not the first time that Talmage had been of service to his church. As a geology professor, he was consulted about underground ventilation options for the Salt Lake Tabernacle and about the scientific evidence for organic evolution, which he cautiously promoted. At the church president's request, Talmage also delivered a series of lectures on church theology which would form the basis for his later influential books; Classics in Mormon Thought Series No. 5; 6" x 9"; 334 pages; 1560850183,

Hardcover



Brand new hardcover book! ; The first volume of the Joseph Smith Papers series, Journals, Volume 1, became an overnight bestseller. The much-anticipated Journals, Volume 2, covers the Nauvoo period from December 1841 to April 30, 1843. Two major documents are featured in this volume:

• The journal portion of the Book of the Law of the Lord, which served as a combination journal and temple record book. It includes journal entries on revelations received during this time period, letters written and received, and temple donations.

• The first two of four small books titled “President Joseph Smith’s Journal,” kept by Willard Richards during the last years of the Prophet Joseph’s life (the final two books will be published in the forthcoming third and final volume of the Journals series).

The journals provide background information about Joseph’s life and early Church history and form the foundation for the official history of the Church. Among the key events described in this volume are the creation of the Relief Society; the building of the Nauvoo Temple; and revelations on the nature of God, and baptism for the dead. Three letters from Emma are also included. These journals provide insights about the Prophet Joseph’s personality, including accounts of him functioning as mayor of Nauvoo, store operator, and general in the Nauvoo legion. ; Vol. 2; 1.75 x 10.5 x 7.5 Inches; 558 pages; 1609087372,

Jessee, Dean C. ; Esplin, Ronald K. ; Bushman, Richard Lyman (General editors)New in New dust jacket, Church Historian's Press, 2011, 

Hardcover



Brand new hardcover book! Previously published, Journals, Volume 1: 1832 - 1839. ; Revelations and Translations, Volume 2: Published Revelations, features the Book of Commandments and the other major printed versions of Joseph Smith's revelations that were published or in the process of being published during his lifetime. Reproduce herein as high-quality photographs are the Book of Commandments (1833); the first edition of the Doctrine and Covenants (1835), including the portion that has come to be known as the "Lectures on Faith"; and seven additional texts added to the second edition of the Doctrine and Covenants (1844). Reproduced herein as transcripts are twenty-six complete or partial revelation texts published in the church newspaper The Evening and the Morning Star (1832-1833) and its later, reprinted version, Evening and Morning Star (1835-1836). Because these newspaper versions were produced in connection with editing and typesetting work on the Book of Commandments and the 1835 Doctrine and Covenants, they are critical sources for understanding the textual history of the revelations.

This volume of The Joseph Smith Papers also includes two appendixes that provide important related material. The first is a proposed reconstruction of what likely would have been included in the final thirty-two pages of the Book of Commandments, had the print shop not been destroyed mid-run by vigilantes. The second presents selected photographs of a copy of the Book of Commandments owned by Oliver Cowdery and marked up to prepare revelations for publication in the 1835 Doctrine and Covenants.

Revelations and Translations, Volume 2 goes hand in hand with Manuscript Revelations Books, the first volume in this series. Manuscript Revelation Books presents the earliest surviving manuscripts of many of Joseph Smith's revelations, the ones used by Smith and his associates in preparing the published scriptures of their day. Volume 2 presents the printed revelations in the form that most Latter-day Saints read and experienced them. Together the two volumes make the early revelations more accessible than ever before.

15 Red Stockings and Out-of-Towners; Sports in Utah

Layton, Stanford J. (editor)New, Signature Books, Salt Lake City, UT

Paperback



Brand new softcover book! Never been read! ; Long before professional basketball came to Utah in 1970, the state boasted an impressive record in other sports including its share of superstars: Jack Dempsey, world heavyweight boxing champion, 1919-26; Iver Lawson, international cycling champion, 1904; Alf Engen whose world ski-jumping records in the 1930s-40s prompted Sports Illustrated to remember him as "the Michael Jordan of his sport"; Ab Jenkins who set the world land-speed endurance record in 1940; and tennis player David Freed who won the U. S. Senior Singles tournament in 1954. In team sports, the nearly forgotten Salt Lake Seagulls of 1946-47 competed against the best pro football teams in the West, while two baseball teams, the Salt Lake Deserets and their inner-city rival, the Red Stockings, played successfully in 1878-79 against the Cheyenne Reds, the Chicago White Stockings, the Denver Browns, the Nebraska Omahas, and the Rochester Hop Bitters. Added to these, such pastimes as horse racing at the state fairgrounds, a winter ascent of Mt. Timpanogos in 1916, and angling at Fish Lake National Forest show the diversity and evolution of athletics in Utah. Like replaying the 1998 title game between the Utah Jazz and the Chicago Bulls, these assembled tales of perseverance, skill, exuberance, and heartbreak from long ago are equally thrilling. ; 6" x 9"; 264 pages; 1560851651,

Our Lost Constitution: The Willful Subversion of America's Founding Document, Lee, Mike
16 Our Lost Constitution: The Willful Subversion of America's Founding Document

Lee, MikeNew in New dust jacket, Sentinel, 2015, 

Hardcover



Brand new hardcover book!

; The still-unfolding story of America’s Constitution is a history of heroes and villains—the flawed visionaries who inspired and crafted liberty’s safeguards, and the shortsighted opportunists who defied them. Those stories are known by few today.In Our Lost Constitution, Senator Mike Lee tells the dramatic, little-known stories behind six of the Constitution’s most indispensible provisions. He shows their rise. He shows their fall. And he makes vividly clear how nearly every abuse of federal power today is rooted in neglect of this Lost Constitution. For example:

• The Origination Clause says that all bills to raise taxes must originate in the House of Representatives, but contempt for the clause ensured the passage of Obamacare.
• The Fourth Amendment protects us against unreasonable searches and seizures, but the NSA now collects our private data without a warrant.
• The Legislative Powers Clause means that only Congress can pass laws, but unelected agencies now produce ninety-nine out of every one hundred pages of legal rules imposed on the American people.

Lee’s cast of characters includes a former Ku Klux Klansman, who hijacked the Establishment Clause to strangle Catholic schools; the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, who called the Second Amendment a fraud; and the revered president who began his first of four terms by threating to shatter the balance of power between Congress and the president, and who began his second term by vowing to do the same to the Supreme Court.

Fortunately, the Constitution has always had its defenders. Senator Lee tells the story of how Andrew Jackson, noted for his courage in duels and politics, stood firm against the unconstitutional expansion of federal powers. He brings to life Ben Franklin’s genius for compromise at a deeply divided constitutional convention. And he tells how in 2008, a couple of unlikely challengers persuaded the Supreme Court to rediscover the Second Amendment’s right to keep and bear arms.

Sections of the Constitution may have been forgotten, but it’s not too late to bring them back—if only we remember why we once demanded them and how we later lost them. Drawing on his experience working in all three branches of government, Senator Lee makes a bold case for resurrecting the Lost Constitution to restore and defend our fundamental liberties.

SAN BERNARDINO - The Rise and Fall of a California Community, Lyman, Edward Leo
17 SAN BERNARDINO - The Rise and Fall of a California Community

Lyman, Edward LeoNew in New dust jacket, Signature Books, Salt Lake City, UT

Hardcover



Brand new hardcover book! Never been read! ; In the mid-1800s San Bernardino emerged as one of the largest settlements in southern California. It surpassed Pueblo de los Angeles and San Diego in grain and lumber yields and boasted a burgeoning cattle industry and promising wine vineyards. But as a Mormon commune--the farthest outpost in Brigham Young's Rocky Mountain empire--the colony was threatened, and finally abandoned, in 1857 during the Utah war with the United States. From the beginning, Young had misgivings about the colony. Particularly perplexing was the mix of atypical Latter-day Saints who gravitated there. Among these were ex-slave holders; inter-racial polygamists; horse-race gamblers; distillery proprietors; former mountain men, prospectors, and mercenaries; disgruntled Polynesian immigrants; and finally Apostle Amasa M. Lyman, the colony's leader, who became involved in spiritualist seances. Despite Young's suspicions, when he issued the call to relocate to Utah, two-thirds of the city's 3,000 residents dutifully obeyed, leaving behind their cumulative fortunes and a city stripped of its regional economic standing. Recounting this remarkable story, Edward Leo Lyman skillfully interweaves the most intriguing details about the setting and chain of events, emphasizing both the significance and irony of this diverse legacy. ; 6" x 9"; 484 pages; 1560850671,

THE ESSENTIAL B. H. ROBERTS, Madsen, Brigham D.
18 THE ESSENTIAL B. H. ROBERTS

Madsen, Brigham D.New in New dust jacket, Signature Books, Salt Lake City, UT

Hardcover



Brand new hardcover book! Never been read! ; Although Brigham H. Roberts was an LDS general authority, he was by public consensus and his own admission an intellectual. Consequently, and due to the painfully earnest, meticulous way he approached any issue of consequence and his intimate familiarity with Western thought, he occasionally appeared to be knowingly contradictory. Readers are therefore left to judge whether he vacillated over time, tailored his message to the audience on a "milk-before-meat" principle, or was comfortable camouflaging his real intent in metaphor. On one occasion Roberts defended the traditional Mormon view of the godhead—perfected men who "eat, drink ... And procreate" as exalted mortals; another time he seemed less comfortable imposing limitations on a God who cannot be fixed to a single location, for whom Jesus was a mortal incarnation, and for whom the term "trinity" seemed more eloquent than the "presidency of heaven. " His most famous and penetrating analysis focused on the Book of Mormon. In this collection Roberts discusses the mode of its translation, while stopping short of saying that God, who speaks to humans in their own language, could have authored the inconsistent grammar that appeared luminously in Joseph Smith's seer stone. Instead he credits this to Smith's own linguistic contribution, thereby preserving for God a fitting transcendence. Later Roberts went so far as to question the Book of Mormon's historicity. A final example of Roberts's complexity: He proclaimed in public the perfect unity and harmony found at church conferences, but he privately castigated his colleagues for what he considered to be obstinance. He once asked what additional, irrational proposal "may occur to some genius" in the Quorum of the Twelve.; Classics in Mormon Thought Series No. 6; 6" x 9"; 350 pages; 1560851287,

INVENTING MORMONISM - Tradition and the Historical Record, Marquardt, H. Michael and Walters, Wesley P.
19 INVENTING MORMONISM - Tradition and the Historical Record

Marquardt, H. Michael and Walters, Wesley P.New, Signature Books, Salt Lake City, UT

Paperback



Brand new softcover book! Never been read! ; For more than 150 years the story of Mormon origins has been rewritten to a point where only fragments remain of the original. This book restores much of the human drama and detail. Moving from village to village, the Joseph Smith, Sr. , family lived in constant poverty. When in 1825 Joseph, Sr. , a cooper, defaulted on the family's final mortgage payment, he and his nineteen-year-old son, Joseph Jr. , traveled 100 miles south to Pennsylvania to join a band of money diggers on a desperate hunt for buried Spanish treasure. Following this ill-fated quest, father and son returned near-penniless to New York to face eviction. They resettled in a small Manchester cabin where young Joseph later saw angels--not unlike his father and other contemporaries--and eventually found hieroglyph-inscribed sheets of gold, which his former money-digging associates repeatedly tried to steal. During this turbulent time Joseph Smith was brought to court three times for crystal gazing, eloped with a former landlord's daughter, watched as his mother and siblings were excommunicated from the Presbyterian church, published his translation of the hieroglyphs, founded the Church of Christ, saw a potential convert forcibly abducted by her minister, and eventually sought refuge in Ohio where he changed the name of his church and its place of origin. ; 6" x 9"; 286 pages; 1560851082,

20 Against the Wall: Johann Huber and the First Mormons in Austria

Minert, Roger P.New in New dust jacket, Religious Studies Center - Brigham Young University, 2015, Provo, UT

Hardcover



Brand new hardcover book!

; Against the Wall is the fascinating and inspiring story of Johann Huber, one of Austria's earliest LDS converts. Huber had already been a controversial political figure in the farming community of Rottenbach, Austria, but he went from the frying pan into the fire when he informed his neighbors of his LDS baptism in Munich, Germany, in 1900. For the next decate, he weathered relentless persecution from Catholic clerics, neighbors, the local public school, courts, and government officials. Despite attacks from determined opponents, Huber was extraordinarily loyal to his adoptive faith and played a leading role in the foundation and expansion of the LDS Church in Austria. His descendants number more than 430 and live in many lands.

Roger P. Minert served in the West German Mission and earned a BA in German from BYU. He earned an MA in German literature and a PhD in German language history from Ohio State University. After teaching German at the high school and college level, he joined the faculty of BYU as an associate professor of Church History and Doctrine. The author of many articles and books on German pedagogy and family history, he recently published a book on the East German Saints in World War II entitled In Harm's Way. Roger and his wife, Jeanne, live in Provo, Utah.
