3 In the Footsteps of Jesus - Images of the Holy Land

New, Covenant Communications, Inc., 1999, American Fork, UT

Paperback



Brand new softcover book! Photographs by John Telford. Text by Susan Easton Black. ; Brand new softcover book! Photographs by John Telford. Text by Susan Easton Black. ; The lights of the Old City glow at dawn above Jerusalem . . . Shepherds still watch over their sheep today on terraced hills near Bethlehem . . . Money changers are still seen today near the Temple Mount . . . An Arab man is kissed by his camel. For a few shekels, he will allow his camel to kiss tourists . . . Olive trees and spring flowers adorn the Garden of Gethsemane . . . On the pavement stones are signs of games played by the Roman soldiers . . . A Christian pilgrim kisses the burial slab where many pilgrims believe Jesus lay . . . Morning light streams across the Garden Tomb, where Mary came seeking Jesus and two angels said, “Why seek ye the living among the dead? He is not here, but is risen. ”This is the Holy Land—a land where past, present, and future converge to illuminate the birth, life, and atoning sacrifice of the Lord Jesus Christ. It is a place where, two thousand years ago, a God was ushered into mortality; where the bread of life was freely given to all who would listen to Jesus’ words; where, with infinite compassion, the Savior of the world vanquished death forever. It is a place of miracles. Award-winning photographer John Telford and distinguished author Susan Easton Black have lovingly intertwined their creative gifts to capture the true essence of Jerusalem and many other locations significant to the life of the Savior. From the steep hillsides of Nazareth, to the shores of Galilee, to the stillness of the Garden Tomb, they bring the Holy Land to life in a way that is both lively and reverential. It is an inspired and moving tribute to the gentle Man who walked these hills and valleys so long ago, and whose spirit still lingers to bless this sacred land at the dawning of a new millennium. ; 11" x 8.5"; 105 pages; 9781608610860,

New, Archive Publishers, 2000, Heber City, Utah

Paperback



Brand new softcover book! %% ; Brand new softcover book! %% ; (Volume 10) Included in this book of the FAITH-PROMOTING SERIES are the short biographies of John Tanner, Daniel Tyler, and Newel Knight taken from their personal histories and journals. Like other books of this series, the true accounts are related to "increase the faith of the youth of the Church."

From the Preface: "There is a gradually increasing interest among the young of this people for reading and study. It is now the ambition of nearly every son and daughter of the Saints to become well educated. Parents, also, are more deeply interested in the intellectual growth of the youth. Thus we are gradually ascending to a higher plane, and our influence is being felt in a more extendedsphere.

"The desire, however, to place matter in the hands of the young for reading and study, should not cause parents to be less careful in the selection of books. Truth expands the mind and quickens the understanding, while fiction dulls the perceptions and impairs the memory." ; Faith Promoting Series Series; Vol. 10; 5" x 8"; 128 pages; 9781930679788,

Leather



Brand new hardcover book! Leather. This is a stunning book. Bound in brown leather with gilt titles and page edges. Silk end sheets and ribbon. ; Brand new hardcover book! Leather. This is a stunning book. Bound in brown leather with gilt titles and page edges. Silk end sheets and ribbon. ; The New Testament writers were acquainted with the Savior’s teachings and his perfect example. As apostles and messengers of the Lord, they were appointed by God to teach the truths of His doctrine and to testify that Jesus of Nazareth is the Son of God.

These authors used different approaches to write about the life of Jesus. John wrote primarily about the last week of Christ’s mortal ministry, while Matthew included many references to Old Testament prophecies which he applied to the life of our Savior. Luke emphasized that Jesus felt compassion towards and came to heal the poor and downtrodden. Mark wrote a short account emphasizing Christ’s power as a Savior. The combination of these accounts gives us a broader understanding and knowledge of Jesus Christ and the events that transpired in His ministry.

The Life of the Savior was compiled to provide a continuous, fluid reading of the four Gospel accounts while including any modern scripture, as revealed by the Prophet Joseph Smith, that refers to and clarifies the Savior’s life. The result is a commentary-free, scriptural account that paints a vivid and insightful picture of Jesus Christ.

19 THINGS IN HEAVEN AND EARTH - The Life and Times of Wilford Woodruff, a Mormon Prophet

Alexander, Thomas G.New, Signature Books, Salt Lake City, UT

Paperback



Brand new softcover book! Never been read! ; Brand new softcover book! Never been read! ; BEST BOOK AWARD, MORMON HISTORY ASSOCIATIONEVANS BIOGRAPHY AWARD, MOUNTAIN WEST CENTERWilford Woodruff converted to the LDS church in 1833, he joined a millenarian group of a few thousand persecuted believers clustered around Kirtland, Ohio. When he died sixty-five years later in 1898, he was the leader of more than a quarter of a million followers worldwide who were on the verge of entering the mainstream of American culture. Before attaining that status of senior church apostle at the death of John Taylor in 1886, Woodruff had been one of the fiercest opponents of United States hegemony. He spent years evading territorial marshals on the Mormon "underground, " escaping prosecution for polygamy, unable even to attend his first wife's funeral. As church president, faced with disfranchisement and federal confiscation of Mormon property, including temples, Woodruff reached his monumental decision in 1890 to accept U. S. Law and to petition for Utah statehood. As church doctrines and practices evolved, Woodruff himself changed. The author examines the secular and religious development of Woodruff's world view from apocalyptic mystic to pragmatic conciliator. He also reveals the gentle, solitary farmer; the fisherman and horticulturalist; the family man with seven wives; the charismatic preacher of the Mormon Reformation; the astute businessman; the urbane, savvy politician who courted the favor of prominent Republicans in California and Oregon (Leland Stanford and Isaac Trumbo) ; and the vulnerable romantic who pursued the affections of Lydia Mountford, an international lecturer and Jewish rights advocate. He traces a faithful polygamist who ultimately embraced the Christian Home movement and settled comfortably into a monogamous relationship in an otherwise typically Victorian setting. ; 6" x 9"; 504 pages; 1560850450,
