1 Underwood, Grant (editor)PIONEERS IN THE PACIFIC - Memory, History, and Cultural Identity Among the Latter-Day Saints

Religious Studies Center, Brigham Young University, 2005, 

Hardcover

New

Brand new hardcover book! ; While most people know about the pioneers who settled the American West, few are as familiar with the faithful Saints and missionaries who have served in the Pacific Islands. Drawing on firsthand accounts of islanders and missionaries, both written and oral, this volume presents unforgettable tales of faith and courage throughout the history of Latter-day Saints in the Pacific Islands. President Gordon B. Hinckley shares inspiring stories of missionaries and members in Australia, Hawaii, New Zealand, Samoa, Tahiti, and Tonga. Elder Glen L. Rudd of the Seventy recalls serving with Matthew Cowley, the "Apostle of the Polynesians, " a man loved for his faith and kindness. Eric B. Shumway, president of BYU-Hawaii, discusses his experiences with the "generosity of soul" so typical of islander culture. Chieko N. Okazaki, former counselor in the Relief Society general presidency, discusses the need for harmony between gospel principles and human culture-a vital issue as the Church continues its worldwide growth. Vernice Wineera discusses the vital role played by the Polynesian Cultural Center. First-class articles break new ground in telling the history of the Church in Fiji, Kiribati, Micronesia, the Cook Islands, and New Caledonia. ; 8" x 10"; 315 pages,

2 Underwood, GrantVOYAGES OF FAITH - Explorations in Mormon Pacific History

Brigham Young University, 2000, Provo, UT

Paperback

New

Brand new book! Never been read! ; Accounts of the pioneers' trek across the plains have inspired Latter-day Saints of different lands and cultures for generations. But as the Church becomes more global, there are other histories to tell. Voyages of Faith is a new book that tells one of those histories. The first compilation of its kind, Voyages brings together scholarly research, personal reminiscences and stories of inspiration and faith of Latter-day Saints in the Pacific Islands over the last 150 years. Contributors to the book include native Pacific Islanders, notably Chieko N. Okazaki, the first non-Caucasian called to the Relief Society, Young Women's and Primary general boards. While some chapters are scholarly in focus, others give insight into the emotions and experiences of contemporary Polynesian Latter-day Saints. Voyages chronicles early LDS Church life in the pacific, missionary work and pacific temples. There is even an account written by a surviving Church member from the Kalaupapa leper colony. The content is drawn from presentations made during the last 20 years to the Mormon Pacific Historical Society, an organization dedicated to gathering, recording and publishing LDS history of the Pacific area. Grant Underwood, BYU historian and editor of Voyages, said although the stories within the volume are about Pacific Islanders, they will inspire all who read them. "This book relates wonderful accounts of ordinary people receiving extraordinary blessings," said Underwood. "It's inspirational for readers to know that God has been dealing with his children all over the world." Underwood said the publication of Voyages illustrates the worldwide nature of the Church. "Stories of faith and courage can come from any culture and inspire any culture," he said. "Polynesians have had many wonderful spiritual experiences that can hearten Saints everywhere." ; Studies in Latter-Day Saint History Series; 6.25" x 9.25"; 413 pages,
