In Heaven as It Is on Earth -   Joseph Smith and the Early Mormon Conquest of Death, Brown, Samuel Morris
1 In Heaven as It Is on Earth - Joseph Smith and the Early Mormon Conquest of Death

Brown, Samuel MorrisNew in New Dust Jacket, Oxford University Press, USA, 2012, 

Hardcover



Brand new hardcover book! %%

; A compelling new interpretation of early Mormonism, Samuel Brown's In Heaven as It Is On Earth views this religion through the lens of founder Joseph Smith's profound preoccupation with the specter of death.

Revisiting historical documents and scripture from this novel perspective, Brown offers new insight into the origin and meaning of some of Mormonism's earliest beliefs and practices. The world of early Mormonism was besieged by death--infant mortality, violence, and disease were rampant. A prolonged battle with typhoid fever, punctuated by painful surgeries including a threatened leg amputation, and the sudden loss of his beloved brother Alvin cast a long shadow over Smith's own life. Smith embraced and was deeply influenced by the culture of "holy dying"--with its emphasis on deathbed salvation, melodramatic bereavement, and belief in the Providential nature of untimely death--that sought to cope with the widespread mortality of the period. Seen in this light, Smith's treasure quest, search for Native origins, distinctive approach to scripture, and belief in a post-mortal community all acquire new meaning, as do early Mormonism's Masonic-sounding temple rites and novel family system. Taken together, the varied themes of early Mormonism can be interpreted as a campaign to extinguish death forever. By focusing on Mormon conceptions of death, Brown recasts the story of first-generation Mormonism, showing a religious movement and its founder at once vibrant and fragile, intrepid and unsettled, human and otherworldly.

A lively narrative history, In Heaven as It Is on Earth illuminates not only the foundational beliefs of early Mormonism but also the larger issues of family and death in American religious history.

THE GATEWAY WE CALL DEATH, Nelson, Russell M.
3 THE GATEWAY WE CALL DEATH

Nelson, Russell M.New, Deseret Book, 1995, Salt Lake City, UT

Audio CD



Brand New CD (Audio Book). Unabridged.

; “Our purpose in life is to be tested, to develop faith, to make and keep sacred covenants, and, later, to leave,” writes President Russell M. Nelson, a member of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

“Our ultimate and highest destiny is to return to our heavenly home. When that times comes, it can be as momentous as the time of birth. Birth is the gateway to mortal life; death is the gateway to immortality and eternal life.”

In The Gateway We Call Death, President Nelson, a surgeon by profession and now a special witness of the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, approaches the subject of death from both a medical and a theological point of view to discuss such topics as these:

The purpose of life and of death
The purpose of mourning
When death comes without warning
Factors of choice, such as suicide, euthanasia, and use of mechanical means to extend life
Life after death

“As I have come to comprehend more about life in all of its phases,” President Nelson writes, “I no longer feel that death is always that foe to be feared. Instead, I view it as a potential friend to be understood.”

The Gateway We Call Death provides reassurance and comfort for all who seek such understanding.
