It's About Time - Science Harmonized with Religion: Where we are in God's Time, Allan, David W.
2 It's About Time - Science Harmonized with Religion: Where we are in God's Time

Allan, David W.New, Digital Legend, 2015, SLC, UT

Paperback



Brand new softcover book! ; Is there a realm known as God’s Time or an Eternity-Domain?

What about Man’s Time?

What about Transcendental Time?

Where are we in Time?

The concept of time is one of those things we humans take entirely for granted. Few people ever dedicate the effort to learn what time is?

David W. Allan has been measuring time for over 54 years as an atomic clock physicist. He has sliced the second into billionths, quadrillionths, and even smaller.

Such precision has enabled developments like GPS and cellular communication, something we all are aware of.

The author’s devotion to learning and the pursuit of truth has revealed a surprisingly strong connection between things spiritual, scientific, physical, political, historical and mental.

It’s about time we became aware of the ideas that bind us to the eternal. This is (according to the author) the most exciting time in the history of the planet... and we are living it!

Note: David W. Allan is one of the world's most renown scholars in the world of horology (the study of time). His writings come from a decidedly LDS/Mormon perspective. While he does not recruit or admonish readers in any way, he sites his tradition and occasionally makes reference to the scriptures that inform his belief system. Along with Glenn Beck, David (and some 14 million others) have discovered that there is far more common ground between Latter-day Saints, Christians and Jews that most would have ever imagined. It is from this expanse of common ground that he appeals to his readers to consider the entire package by asking each reader to bring his or her "truth" to the discussion and see if his remarkable breakthroughs cannot add a new dimension unto it.

This book is witness that truth is not the domain of any one religion or sect but rather we all have elements of the larger truth to share with one another. He encourages all to read it and see if it does not "ring" true to your heart. He also encourages those of his own faith to explore his findings in the same way he invites readers of all faiths or no faith at all. Truly the dimension of time is an exciting frontier filled with new insights for all those willing to explore its depths.

Science and Religion: Reconciling the Conflicts, Barker, David M.
3 Science and Religion: Reconciling the Conflicts

Barker, David M.New, Tate Publishing, 2013, United States

Paperback



Brand new softcover book! ; From the Author, "In the book, I take a rather literal approach to the scriptures, supposing that they generally say what they mean and mean what they say.

While there is no conflict between truth from one source and truth from another, there are plenty of conflicts between Science and Religion. What’s wrong? Why do scientists generally reject, or ignore the accounts of the Great Flood? Why do so many people attribute their loss of faith to science? These and related questions are discussed in the book.

I’ve studied a number of lesser-known scientific theories which are more consistent with the scriptures than many of those that are much more popular. Also, information is shared suggesting that some of the very popular scientific theories aren’t as sound as we might think.

The book contains a large number of quotes from incredibly interesting sources.

Brief Synopsis

The Blueprint of Christ's Church, Callister, Tad R.
6 The Blueprint of Christ's Church

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

Paperback



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.

About the Author

7 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,

THE ESSENTIAL PARLEY P. PRATT, Crawley, Peter L.
9 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,

Dew, SheriVery Good in Very Good dust jacket, Deserert book, 2015, Salt Lake City, UT

Paperback



Cover has some light edge and corner wear. Previous owner name inside front cover now marked out. ; What is grace? What difference can grace make in our lives? How does the Savior make His power available to us? And what must we do to gain access to that power?In Amazed by Grace, Sheri Dew discusses each of those important questions, exploring a topic that she describes as being central to the Atonement of Jesus Christ. "The most compelling, most life-changing message of all time," she writes, "is that Jesus Christ has already triumphed over sin, death, hell, temptation, and every kind of misery."

As we come to more fully understand the majestic doctrine of grace, our faith will increase. we will see how the Savior keeps His promise to make weak things strong. And we will believe the truth that "His Atonement makes available all of the power, peace, light, and strength that we need to deal with life's challenges."

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,

Joseph Smith’s Polygamy: Toward a Better Understanding, Hales, Brian C. and Laura H. Hales
13 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.

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,

Mormonism Unvailed, Howe, Eber D. with critical comments by Dan Vogel
15 Mormonism Unvailed

Howe, Eber D. with critical comments by Dan VogelNew in New dust jacket, Signature Books, 2015, 

Hardcover



Brand new hardcover book!

; Any Latter-day Saint who has ever defended his or her beliefs has likely addressed issues first raised by Eber D. Howe in 1834. Howe’s famous exposé was the first of its kind, with information woven together from previous news articles and some thirty affidavits he and others collected. He lived and worked in Painesville, Ohio, where, in 1829, he had published about Joseph Smith’s discovery of a “golden bible.” Smith’s decision to relocate in nearby Kirtland sparked Howe’s attention. Of even more concern was that Howe’s wife and other family members had joined the Mormon faith. Howe immediately began investigating the new Church and formed a coalition of like-minded reporters and detractors. By 1834, Howe had collected a large body of investigative material, including affidavits from Smith’s former neighbors in New York and from Smith’s father-inlaw in Pennsylvania. Howe learned about Smith’s early interest in pirate gold and use of a seer stone in treasure seeking and heard theories from Smith’s friends, followers, and family members about the Book of Mormon’s origin. Indulging in literary criticism, Howe joked that Smith, “evidently a man of learning,” was a student of “barrenness of style and expression.” Despite its critical tone, Howe’s exposé is valued by historians for its primary source material and account of the growth of Mormonism in northeastern Ohio.

Eber Dudley Howe (1798-1885) was born in Clifton Park, New York. A newspaperman, he launched the Telegraph in Painesville, Ohio, in 1822. An abolitionist, Howe used his home as a refuge for runaway slaves as part of the Underground Railroad. In 1878 he published his memoir, Autobiography and Recollections of a Pioneer Printer.

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
18 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
19 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,
