1 Approaching Antiquity; Joseph Smith and the Ancient World

Blumell, Lincoln H. & Matthew J. Grey & Andrew H. HedgesNew in New Dust Jacket, RSC/Deseret Book Company, 2015, 


Brand new hardcover book!

; A collection of essays by prominent LDS scholars—including Richard Bushman and David Holland—Approaching Antiquity discusses the interest in the ancient world shared by Joseph Smith and the early Latter-day Saints. Topics include Joseph Smith's fascination with the ancient Americas, his interaction with the Bible, his study of Hebrew and Greek, his reading of Jewish and Christian apocryphal writings, and his work with the Book of Abraham in the context of 19th-century Egyptology. Together, these essays demonstrate that Joseph Smith's interests in antiquity played an important role in his prophetic development as he sought to recover ancient scripture, restore the ancient Church, and bring the Latter-day Saints into fellowship with the sacred past.

4 The Joseph Smith Papers - Journals Volume 3: May 1843 - June 1844

Hedges, Andrew H. & Alex D. Smith & Brent M. RogersNew in New Dust Jacket, Church Historian Press, 2015, 


Brand new hardcover book!


The last year of Joseph Smith's life was both turbulent and incredibly productive. He served as the highly visible and determined leader of one of the largest cities in Illinois and of a church with members spread throughout the United States and other countries. With his influence at its peak he balanced roles as church president and prophet, mayor, judge, and militia leader, all while responding to escalating conflict. The journal entries reproduced in this volume of The Joseph Smith Papers illuminate Joseph Smith's varied activities and his aspirations and struggles in the months leading to his violent death.

Covering May 1843 through June 1844, this volume features the conclusion of Joseph Smith's second Nauvoo journal, kept by Willard Richards. During these months, Joseph Smith was often preoccupied with legal and political matters, particularly in his role as mayor of Nauvoo, Illinois, and chief justice of Nauvoo's municipal court. Because of continued political struggles and conflict with their neighbors, smith and his advisers contemplated relocating the church to Oregon or the Republic of Texas. The Council of Fifty, also known as "the Kingdom of God," was formed in part to lead this effort. At the same time, church leaders grew frustrated that their petitions to the nation's leaders for redress of losses earlier suffered in Missouri continued to prove fruitless. In response, Smith declared his candidacy for president of the United States.

Joseph Smith gave more than sixty public addresses during this time, many of which are documented in this volume. The discourses covered topics such as salvation, resurrection, baptism for the dead, priesthood ordinances, a multitiered heaven, and humanity's potential to become like God. At times, the teachings pushed the boundaries of what Smith's listeners were prepared to believe. Smith also continued to introduce temple ordinances, including eternal and plural marriage ceremonies, to a growing number of people.

Controversial teachings, the practice of plural marriage, Joseph Smith's growing political power, and other factors led to loud criticism of Smith and other church leaders, by both disaffected church members and prominent opponents in surrounding communities. Growing tensions resulted in threats and violence. The journal refers, for instance, to conspiracies again Joseph Smith's life, led by those who were once friends. After Nauvoo civic leaders declared the anti-Mormon newspaper the Nauvoo Expositor a public nuisance and destroyed its press, Smith and several of his associates were arrested. On the afternoon of 27 June 1844, a mob swarmed the jail in Carthage, Illinois, where Joseph Smith and his brother Hyrum were being held, and killed both men.

This volume includes as appendixes two additional sources that shed light on the final two weeks of Joseph Smith's life: an excerpt from Willard Richards's journal for 23-27 June and an account of Smith's 10-22 June activities made by William Clayton. Given these scribes' proximity to Smith, their records provide invaluable primary source material for studying the events leading to his death.

The accounts in this volume allow readers to study Smith's daily activities and personality as well as to better situate him and the faith he founded within nineteenth-century American history. Because of Richards's idiosyncratic handwriting, many passages of this journal have been misread and misunderstood in the past. To provide the most accurate reading possible, experts in Richards's handwriting have meticulously transcribed Smith's journal according to the highest standards of documentary editing. Aided by comprehensive annotations, this final installment of Joseph Smith's journals constitutes an essential primary source for research into the life of the first leader of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

This is the final volume of the Journals series of The Joseph Smith Papers.

5 The Joseph Smith Papers - Journals, Vol. 2 (1841-1843)

Hedges, Andrew H. & Alex D. Smith & Richard Lyman BushmanNew in New Dust Jacket, Church Historian's Press, 2011, 


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. ; The Joseph Smith Papers Series; Vol. 2; 1.75 x 10.5 x 7.5 Inches; 558 pages,

6 Within These Prison Walls - Lorenzo Snow's Record Book 1886-1897

Hedges, Andrew H. ; Holzapfel, Richard NeitzelNew in New Dust Jacket, Deseret Book, 2010, Salt Lake City, UT


Brand new hardcover book! ; The leather-bound record book that is the focus of this unusual volume was a perfect place for Lorenzo Snow to preserve his outgoing correspondence while incarcerated in the territorial penitentiary. The record book is important for several reasons:
# It sheds much-needed light into the thoughts, personality, and life of President Lorenzo Snow. The deftness with which he puts his thoughts into verse, his vocabulary, as well as his humor and compassion, all reveal facets of his intellect and character that are unfamiliar to many Church members today.
# The record book is significant for its doctrinal content, particularly Elder Snow's teachings concerning the pre-earth life.
# It is an important primary source for students of the anti-polygamy crusade. His poems and letters are invaluable in gaining an understanding of how the Saints viewed their persecutions, justified their resistance to the laws, and found the nerve to carry on despite increasingly difficult circumstances.
# The book also includes many fascinating photographs
