The Latter-day Saints Messenger and Advocate
2 The Latter-day Saints Messenger and Advocate

New in New Dust Jacket, Nauvoo Press, 2014, Nauvoo, IL

Hardcover



Brand new hardcover book!

; The Messenger and Advocate was established after a mob had destroyed the printing press of the The Evening and the Morning Star in Independence, Missouri on 20 July 1833, causing the Star to relocate to Kirtland. After a brief run, the Star was discontinued in favor of a uniquely Ohio newspaper, the Latter Day Saints’ Messenger and Advocate. Oliver Cowdery served as editor and the first issue was printed in October 1834.The May 1835 issue was the last with Cowdery as editor, because there was “other business and other duties, in which my services are requisite.” John Whitmer replaced Cowdery as editor. He may have been heavily assisted in his duties by William Wines Phelps.In March 1836 Cowdery again became editor when both Whitmer and Phelps returned to Missouri. Cowdery’s brother Warren claims that he was actually performing the editorial duties. In February 1837, the printing press was sold to Joseph Smith, Jr. and Sidney Rigdon, and Warren Cowdery became the official editor. The last issue was published in September 1837 after LDS Church leaders became dissatisfied with Warren’s efforts. In October 1837 the newspaper was succeeded by the Elders’ Journal.; 8.25” x 10.75”; 576 pages,

THE SEER
3 THE SEER

New, Nauvoo Press, 2014, Nauvoo, IL

Hardcover



Brand new hardcover book! ; The Seer was an official periodical of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints which first appeared in 1853 and was published throughout 1854.

After the Church publicly acknowledged that it was teaching and practicing plural marriage at its September 1852 conference, President Brigham Young dispatched Orson Pratt to Washington, D.C., where he was asked to publish an apologetic magazine targeted at non-Mormons. The primary purpose of the magazine would be to explain and defend the principles of Mormonism.

The first edition of The Seer was published in January 1853, with future editions being produced monthly. The contents of The Seer were composed almost entirely of original writings by Pratt. Throughout its publication history, the majority of Pratt’s writing stressed the rationality of the doctrine of plural marriage. For example, Pratt dedicated 107 of the 192 total pages of The Seer to a twelve-part exposition on what he called celestial marriage.

The Seer was published in Washington, D.C. until July 1854, when publication was shifted to Liverpool, England. After only 18 issues, Pratt was forced to cease publication due to mounting financial losses. Circulation peaked at 400 copies in late 1853. “The world will not subscribe for nor read The Seer,” Pratt lamented to his brother Parley.

4 Glorious in Persecution: Joseph Smith, American Prophet, 1839-1844

Bradley-Evans, Martha S.New in New Dust Jacket, Smith-Pettit Foundation, 2016, Salt Lake City, UT

Hardcover



Brand new hardcover book!

; Escaping imprisonment in Missouri in 1839, the Mormon prophet Joseph Smith quickly settled with family and followers on the Illinois banks of the Mississippi River. Under Smith’s direction, the small village of Commerce soon mushroomed into the boomtown of Nauvoo, home to 12,000 and more members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

For Smith, Nauvoo was the new epicenter of the Mormon universe: the gathering place for Latter-day Saints worldwide; the location of a modern-day Zion; the stage upon which his esoteric teachings, including plural marriage and secret temple ceremonies, played out; and the locus of a theocracy whose legal underpinnings would be condemned by outsiders as an attack on American pluralism.

In Nauvoo, Smith created a proto-utopian society built upon continuing revelation; established a civil government that blurred the lines among executive, legislative, and legal branches; introduced doctrines that promised glimpses of heaven on earth; centralized secular and spiritual authority in fiercely loyal groups of men and women; insulated himself against legal harassment through creative interpretations of Nauvoo’s founding charter; embarked upon a daring run at the U.S. presidency; and pursued a vendetta against dissidents that lead eventually to his violent death in 1844.

The common thread running through the final years of Smith’s tumultuous life, according to prize-winning historian and biographer, Martha Bradley-Evans, is his story of prophethood and persecution. Smith’s repeated battles with the forces of evil–past controversies transformed into mythic narratives of triumphant as well as present skirmishes with courts, politicians, and apostates–informed Smith’s construction of self and chronicle of innocent suffering.

“Joseph found religious and apocalyptic significance in every offense and persecution–actual or imagined,” writes Bradley-Evans, “and wove these slights into his prophet-narrative. Insults became badges of honor, confirmation that his life was playing out on a mythic stage of opposition. By the time Joseph led his people to Illinois, he had lived with the adulation of followers and the vilification of enemies for more than a decade. Joseph’s worst challenges often proved to be his greatest triumphs. He forged devotion through disaster, faith through depression. Joseph interpreted each new event as God’s will set against manifestations of evil opposed to the restoration of all things.”

Bradley-Evan’s ground-breaking portrait of Smith goes farther than any previous biography in explaining the Mormon prophet and the mystery of his appeal.

6 Brigham's Destroying Angel - Being the Life Confession and Startling Disclosures on the Notorious Bill Hickman the Danite Chief of Utah

Hickman, BillVery Good, Geo. A. Crofutt, 1872, New York

Hardcover



219pp. plus 5pp. of publisher's advertisements. Illustrated. Original publisher's blue cloth, gilt. Extremities lightly worn, minor wear and soiling to cloth. ; This is the autobiographical account of Bill Hickman, Chief of the Destroying Angels, Head Danite, etc. After Mr. Beadle began to examine the history of the Mormon church; and while all the Mormon people spoke of Bill Hickman as a desperately bad man, and guilty of untold murders, he was struck by two curious and then unexplainable facts. The first was that while everybody, from Brigham Young down, united in calling Hickman a murderer, and while evidence could easily be collected of several of his crimes, not a single attempt has been made by priest or people to bring him to justice. The second point is that long after Hickman was known as a murderer, he was successively promoted to a number of offices; he was Sheriff and Representative of one county, Assessor and Collector of Taxes, and Marshal; and during all this time he was on terms of personal intimacy with Brigham Young.

In His Arms -  Experiences with the Other Side, Mendenhall, Denise
7 In His Arms - Experiences with the Other Side

Mendenhall, DeniseNew, Publishinghope, 2006, 

Paperback



Brand new softcover book! The Near Death Experience of a 10 year-old Mormon child, and the spiritual enlightment she brings to this world. %%

; ...I had a wonderful experience last night. Denise Mendenhall, thirteen years old, spoke at Sterling's parent's home last night along with her Dad, Doug. They have a couple of books. Denise went into a diabetic coma and was on life support. Her doctors gave her no chance at all. When she awakened after three days they pronounced her a vegetable. Twenty-two days later she walked out of the hospital. She spent those three days with Christ and came back with no veil.

It seems a big part of her mission is to draw people to Christ. They told of their last trip to Arizona, and passing through Florence, a town of several prisons. There are signs posted everywhere DO NOT PICK UP HITCHHIKERS. Denise started laughing at one point and told her Dad that Jesus was standing at the side of the road with his thumb out. She laughed as they passed him by, "Dad you just passed Jesus."

This is her story

8 Possibilities Lessons from the Spirit

Mendenhall, DougNew, Publishing Hope - Doug Mendenhall, 2002, 

Paperback



Brand new softcover book! %%

; His first lesson is one of finding gratitude in all things, even for his trials, and this situation provides the perfect environment for him to learn that lesson.He learns it well, for in the midst of the darkest hour, as his daughter lay languishing, rather than turn on God, he turns to God and expresses his trust in him and his gratitude for this situation, and an acceptance of the outcome, whatever that might end up being. In return, he is filled with a profound peace and sense of well-being. In fact, he and his wife are so calm after this that the people in their congregation become concerned that they might be in denial.This is really quite a milestone in their spiritual progression, and it wasn't the only one described in the book.

This is part 2 of the Mendehall's amazing story.

; When Denise was ten she went into an unexpected diabetic coma for three days. With that she had a massive stroke with blood effusing into two-thirds of the left side of her brain. She was expected to die and if she lived, the expectations were that she would be at best like a vegetable. During those three days, her spirit was with the Savior on the other side of the veil and He showed her and taught her a great deal. She was shown His birth, His crucifixion, His resurrection, His ministration to the Americas, and much, much more. ; 5.5" x 8.5"; 201 pages,

Hardcover



Brand new hardcover book!

; In the long-awaited sequel to Fablehaven, the dragons who have been kept at the dragon sanctuaries no longer consider them safe havens, but prisons and they want their freedom. The dragons are no longer our allies....

In the hidden dragon sanctuary of Wyrmroost, Celebrant the Just, King of the Dragons, plots his revenge. He has long seen the sanctuaries as prisons, and he wants nothing more than to overthrow his captors and return the world to the Age of Dragons, when he and his kind ruled and reigned without borders. The time has come to break free and reclaim his power.

No one person is capable of stopping Celebrant and his dragon horde. It will take the ancient order of Dragonwatch to gather again if there is any chance of saving the world from destruction. In ancient times, Dragonwatch was a group of wizards, enchantresses, dragon slayers, and others who originally confined the majority of dragons into sanctuaries. But nearly all of the original Dragonwatch members are gone, and so the wizard Agad reaches out to Grandpa Sorenson for help.

As Kendra and Seth confront this new danger, they must draw upon all their skills, talents, and knowledge as only they have the ability to function together as a powerful dragon tamer. Together they must battle against forces with superior supernatural powers and breathtaking magical abilities.

How will the epic dragon showdown end? Will dragons overthrow humans and change the world as we know it?
