1 MORMON DEMOCRAT - The Religious and Political Memoirs of James Henry Moyle

Sessions, Gene A. (editor)New, Signature Books, 2011, Salt Lake City, UT

Hardcover



Brand new hardcover book! Never been read! ; BEST BOOK AWARD, MORMON HISTORY ASSOCIATION. James Henry Moyle was Assistant Secretary of the Treasury under U. S. President Woodrow Wilson, Commissioner of Customs under President Theodore Roosevelt, and special assistant to treasury secretary Henry Morgenthau. He was also president of the LDS Eastern States Mission. By his own count, he had two religions, Mormonism and the Democratic Party, and he alternately praised and criticized both. As one who was intimately acquainted with every major religious and political figure in Utah and elsewhere over six decades--and as the father of a future LDS apostle--he mustered surprisingly profound and entertaining insights in his memoirs. Par of his prominence was due to his aristocratic flair. Apostle Matthew Cowley admitted that he "always had to take another look when [he] passed Brother James H. Moyle on the street. " Nor was this large-framed, gray-haired statesman one to mince words. It is the raw edge to his comments that makes his autobiography so memorable. This former political kingpen's life is also recounted in LDS church president Gordon B. Hinckley's James Henry Moyle: The Story of a Distinguished American and Honored Churchman, who, by his own account, refers to Moyle as a colorful, highly opinionated, uncensored voice, who has a unique value. ; Significant Mormon Diaries Series No. 8 Series; Vol. 8; 6" x 9"; 408 pages,

2 MORMON THUNDER - A Documentary History of Jedediah Morgan Grant

Sessions, Gene A.New, Greg Kofford Books, 2008, Salt Lake City, UT

Paperback



Brand New! ; Jedediah Morgan Grant was a man whoknew no compromise when it came to principles—and his principles were clearly representative, argues Gene A. Sessions, of Mormonism’sfirst generation. His life is a glimpse of a Mormonworld whose disappearance coincided with thedeath of this “pious yet rambunctiously radicalpreacher, flogging away at his people, demandingotherworldliness and constant sacrifice. ” It was“an eschatological, pre-millennial world in whichevery individual teetered between salvation anddamnation and in which unsanitary privies andappropriating a stray cow held the same potentialfor eternal doom as blasphemy and adultery. ”Updated and newly illustrated with morephotographs, this second edition of the award-winning documentary history (first publishedin 1982) chronicles Grant’s ubiquitous role in the Mormon history of the 1840s and ’50s. In addition to serving as counselor to Brigham Young during two tumultuous and influentialyears at the end of his life, he also portentously befriended Thomas L. Kane, worked totemper his unruly brother-in-law William Smith, captained a company of emigrants into theSalt Lake Valley in 1847, and journeyed to the East on several missions to bolster the positionof the Mormons during the crises surrounding the runaway judges affair and the publicrevelation of polygamy. Jedediah Morgan Grant’s voice rises powerfully in these pages, startling in its urgencyin summoning his people to sacrifice and moving in its tenderness as he communicated tohis family. From hastily scribbled letters to extemporaneous sermons exhorting obedience, and the notations of still stunned listeners, the sound of “Mormon Thunder” rolls again in“a boisterous amplification of what Mormonism really was, and would never be again. ”; 5.5" x 8.5"; 470 pages,
