That Promised Day -  The Coming Forth of the LDS Scriptures
1 That Promised Day - The Coming Forth of the LDS Scriptures

New, Covenant Communications, Inc., 2011, American Fork, UT

DVD



Brand New DVD. A BYU Broadcasting Production; 58 minutes. ; “For my soul delighteth in the scriptures, and my heart pondereth them,and writeth them for the learning and the profit of my children” (2 Ne.4:15).

You will be fascinated by this compelling story of the miraculous events that led to the creation and publication of the modern version of the complete standard works of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It chronicles the monumental project initiatedin 1972 to publish an LDS edition of the King James Bible and the subsequent revisions of other Church scriptures to include cross referencing footnotes and many other beneficial study aids. This documentary film shows how the hand of the Lord was evident throughout the process as the pains taking work was performed by some of the greatest scholars of this dispensation under the direction of prophets, seers, and revelators. In President Thomas S. Monson’s observations included in the film, he states, “More people have studied the scriptures, more people have carried the scriptures, and more people have been taught the scriptures and understand the scriptures as a result of the work we’re talking about.

”This program will bring greater appreciation for the inspired efforts that have helped Latter-day Saints better understand God’s words through cross-referencing footnotes that link all of the standard works, the addition of the Joseph Smith Translation, and other improved study tools such as maps, chapter headings, and topical guides. What remains for us is to make use of these sacred resources to enhance our understanding of the gospel of Jesus Christ and to solidify our testimonies, “that every man might speak in the name of God, the Lord. ”DVD.

Breaking the Chains of the Past: Overcoming Childhood Trauma through the Power of the Atonement, Bobberfuhl, DOuglass, M.S.
2 Breaking the Chains of the Past: Overcoming Childhood Trauma through the Power of the Atonement

Bobberfuhl, DOuglass, M.S.New, Walnut Springs Press, 2015, United States

Paperback



Brand new softcover book!

; Whether a person is born into an LDS family and experiences abuse or later converts and had an abusive past, it is critical for the adult survivor to find hope, comfort, and healing. Yet all too often, as these brave individuals reach out for help, they struggle in overcoming the gap between the doctrine of the Atonement and the practical application of it. How frustrating it is to be members of Christ's Church and not know how to use the greatest gift He has given us--His infinite and everlasting sacrifice.

The aim of this book is to help those who are survivors of childhood abuse--emotional, physical, and sexual--in two ways. The first is to help readers understand the stumbling blocks that come from childhood abuse that keep us from embracing the power of the Atonement of Christ. The second is to explore concrete, how-to methods of applying and gaining the promised healing that Christ offers us.

This book offers many stories and case examples, showing real struggles of members as they try to find the Savior and seek for peace. Their stories will encourage and give hope to anyone who is searching for the promised blessings of healing.

Brand new softcover book, with hidden spiral binding! %%

; Reviewed by Roy Schmidt for the Association for Mormon Letters.

I first read The Book of Mormon in 1968. I was not a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints at the time, but was “looking into it.” As I read over the following months, I gradually became convinced the book contains the Word of God. I subsequently joined the Church, and have enjoyed reading and studying The Book of Mormon ever since. I estimate having read it more than one hundred twenty-five times over the years, and still learn from it.

When I met M. Brent Gandre at the LDS Bookseller's Association Conference recently, and saw what he has produced, I wondered if his work had anything new to offer. After all, Book of Mormon workbooks are nothing new. That said, I really like the approach Gandre has taken.

The workbook is well structured. The odd numbered pages are divided into six columns covering Date, Writer/Record, Reference, Place, Description/People/Events, and Doctrine. I use page 119 as an example:

Date: 83 BC, 9th [year of the] judgesWriter/Record: Recorder= Alma2, Large Plates Nephi kept by kings &, or descendents of Nephi were abridged by Mormon3 (There were also detailed records kept by the Nephites – which Mormon3 had from Hill Shim)

Reference: Alma 5 p 217

Place: Lands of Zarahemla, Mormon

Description, People and Events: (Note the use of first person in this chapter) Alma2 traveled & taught the Nephites & recorded his own words, the Word of God. He started in the city of Zarahemla. He received his authority as High Priest from his father Alma who had received it in the Land of Nephi - Lehi at a place called the Waters of Mormon in the land of Mormon (see Mosiah 18 above). Those that followed Alma were delivered from the bondage & captivity of king Noah & then of the Lamanites; when their hearts were changed by God. Then Alma2 asked the people of Zarahemla several questions about their own spiritual birth, their righteousness, the Judgment, Mercy & Repentance. He called those who have rebelled to return to the flock or suffer condemnations. He bore testimony of his own conversion through fasting & prayer. The Savior would come to accomplish the Atonement. He warned of pride & not caring for needy. The names of the righteousness will be written in the Book of Life.

Doctrines: Born of God, Repentance, Wickedness, Atonement, Mercy, Care of needy, Book of Life, Judgment.

I find all this quite helpful to the reader/student. I make particular mention of how much I appreciated the author's identifying the various persons appearing in The Book of Mormon by adding their chronological number (Nephi, Nephi2, etc.) This is most helpful in keeping things straight in my mind.

The even numbered pages are blank, giving the student a place to record “Your Notes & Ponderings.” This is something I always intend to do, but seldom follow up.

In his introduction Gandre writes, “PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE do not let this chronology substitute for reading the Book of Mormon itself, which is SCRIPTURE. You would rob yourself of many rich experiences & gaining a testimony of the Book of Mormon. Wonderful things can happen as you SUP from the scriptures."

The Book of Mormon is the Gospel Doctrine course of study for 2012. I fully intend to include A Chronological Workbook For Book of Mormon Study as part of my individual study, and enthusiastically recommend it to readers of this review.

(Editor's addition to Roy's review)

I likewise met Mr. Gandre at the recent LDS Booksellers convention in Sandy, Utah. I'm always excited when someone outside the normal large publisher crowd emerges with a unique and helpful product. I've looked through this book and came to appreciate the time and effort Gandre has put into this project. What a terrific guide this is to the story of the Book of Mormon. As Roy indicated above, there are very helpful summaries of each chapter of the Book of Mormon. I suggested to Gandre that a reader might benefit from reading through these summaries as a way of capturing the storyline and not become completely lost in the complexity of the story.

The book is nicely produced and is constructed so that it lays flat on a writing surface -- a very helpful feature. And there's plenty of room to take notes -- sometimes lacking in such endeavors.

All in all, I think this would be a wonderful addition to any Book of Mormon student's library. Even if you've read the book many times, there's always some new insight to be gained, and this workbook is a fine way of keeping track of those insights. And when you're listening to a talk and hear something new and exciting, here's a way to record that thought, in context, in a way that enables you to go back to it again and again.

Bravo to Mr. Gandre for this nice addition to the many tools available for Book of Mormon study.; 8" x 9"; 217 pages,

Secret Combinations Today - A Voice of Warning, Hales, Robert E.
7 Secret Combinations Today - A Voice of Warning

Hales, Robert E.New, Cedar Fort, Inc., 2005, Springville, UT

Paperback



Brand new softcover, never been read! ; This book is essential for these perilous times! It sounds the warning trumpet, alerting the Saints to imminent dangers that are rapidly crescendoing in their severity. First, the secret combinations of old, using the Book of Mormon account of Korihor as a model is examined. Teachings, tactics, methods and practices of these ancient groups are analyzed and a model is developed which can be used to identify similar organizations that exist today. Shifting the focus to the present, warnings concerning the individual and the family are presented. Next, the view widens to the citizens of the United States. Then the panorama is broadened again to get a worldwide perspective. The book warns of conspiracies on the individual level, related to sexual perversions, homosexuality, abortion, pornography, drugs and Satan worship. At the family level, attacks on family unity and the traditional nuclear family are discussed. Challenges to parenting, child and spouse abuse, and problems in moderns education are illuminated. Terrorism, organized crime, gangs and political corruption are discussed on a broader level. Significant questions about the nation's vulnerability in connection with its monetary policies and serious indebtedness are raised. The history of the Federal Reserve System is examined. The way taxes are used to control the people and the pulpits of the nation is exposed. Opposing views concerning the sanctity and instrumentality of the U. S. Constitution are also presented. On an international level, the warning cry is raised concerning the rapid move toward one world government. This movement's impact is examined in therms of international finance and banking, environmental concerns, population control, youth education, control of civil unrest and the right to bear arms, and international control of religion. The final chapter is a series of recommendations to individual latter-day Saints suggesting appropriate ways to work towards the preservation of their freedoms. Surely, no book can be no more appropriate for these tumultuous last days that Secret Combinations Today: A Voice of Warning. ; 6" x 9"; 192 pages,

This Is My Doctrine - The Development of Mormon Theology, Harrell, Charles
9 This Is My Doctrine - The Development of Mormon Theology

Harrell, CharlesNew in New Dust Jacket, Greg Kofford Books, 2011, Salt Lake City, UT

Hardcover



Brand New! %%

; The principal doctrines defining Mormonism today often bear little resemblance to those it started out with in the early 1830s. This book shows that these doctrines did not originate in a vacuum but were rather prompted and informed by the religious culture from which Mormonism arose. Early Mormons, like their early Christian and even earlier Israelite predecessors, brought with them their own varied culturally conditioned theological presuppositions (a process of convergence) and only later acquired a more distinctive theological outlook (a process of differentiation).

In this first-of-its-kind comprehensive treatment of the development of Mormon theology, Charles Harrell traces the history of Latter-day Saint doctrines from the times of the Old Testament to the present. He describes how Mormonism has carried on the tradition of the biblical authors, early Christians, and later Protestants in reinterpreting scripture to accommodate new theological ideas while attempting to uphold the integrity and authority of the scriptures. In the process, he probes three questions: How did Mormon doctrines develop? What are the scriptural underpinnings of these doctrines? And what do critical scholars make of these same scriptures? In this enlightening study, Harrell systematically peels back the doctrinal accretions of time to provide a fresh new look at Mormon theology.

“This Is My Doctrine” will provide those already versed in Mormonism’s theological tradition with a new and richer perspective of Mormon theology. Those unacquainted with Mormonism will gain an appreciation for how Mormon theology fits into the larger Jewish and Christian theological traditions.

“Because he does not attempt to square circles by making Mormon doctrine consistent over time, Harrell’s encyclopedic survey of Mormon doctrine is more stimulating and more insightful than most other books on Mormon doctrine. He takes many of our most beloved and disputed doctrines and shows the different ways they have been understood (sometimes by the same authority) at different moments in time. What is both amazing and refreshing is that he succeeds in providing a non-apologetic yet sympathetic interpretation of Mormon doctrine, warts and all.”— James McLachlan, Professor of Philosophy and Religion at Western Carolina University; co-editor of Discourses in Mormon Theology: Philosphical and Theological Possibilities. ; 6" x 9"; 597 pages,

Hilton, Donald L. Hilton Jr. M. D.New, Forward Press Publishing, LLC, 2010, 

Paperback



Brand new softcover book! %%

; Technology has accelerated our fascination with pleasure. Indeed, the power of pleasure has been underestimated, and Internet pornography is changing the world in a fundamental way.

He Restoreth My Soul explores the power of addiction, not just from a moral and spiritual perspective, but with the scrutiny of modern science. As the pleasure centers of the brain are abused and damaged, normal pleasures become less recognized as desirable. Relationships are devalued and values change to accommodate the addiction. Spirituality is one of the first casualties.

This work is for all who have become entangled in this devastating neurochemical web, who have lost their ability to resist temptation, and who feel abandoned by all that is good. Family members and loved ones of those who struggle with pornography addiction will also find understanding and hope. Know that there is, as Jeremiah said, "a balm in Gilead." A physician is there. The Savior said, "They that are whole have no need of the physician. He told the Children of Israel through Moses, "I am the Lord that healeth thee." In the end, there must be a connection with the Divine Presence to completely heal the body and the spirit, or the soul of man. And when the Lord heals, it is without reservation or limit.

14 Henry Burkhardt - and LDS Realpolitik in Communist East Germany

Kuehne, RaymondNew, The University of Utah Press, 2011, Salt Lake City, UT

Paperback



Brand new softcover book! ; When the Soviet army occupied eastern Germany at the end of World War II, more than 6,000 members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints fell under the control of the totalitarian and openly atheistic regime of the German Democratic Republic. Due to the relative isolation of the LDS Church in East Germany, a young missionary, Henry Burkhardt, became the official repre­sentative of the church to the communist government, a position that lasted for 40 years. Told largely through original documents and interviews, Henry Burkhardt is a documentary biography that contains two stories: Burkhardt’s life story and a case study of church-state relations in the GDR.

After two decades of government efforts to curtail the LDS Church, Burkhardt became the foundation upon which church lead­ers in the United States would eventually build an improved relationship with the government. Despite the improved relationship with key government offices, Burkhardt was viewed negatively by the Stasi, who watched and reported his every movement. Kuehne uses Burkhardt’s Stasi file to present an interesting contrast to the accounts of a working church-state relationship that saw the construction of the only LDS temple ever built in a communist country. ; 7" x 10"; 208 pages,

Lehi's Dream, Millet, Robert L. & James C. Christensen
15 Lehi's Dream

Millet, Robert L. & James C. ChristensenNew in New Dust Jacket, Deseret Book, 2011, 

Hardcover



Brand new hardcover book! %%

; Some six hundred years before Christ, a small band of travelers somewhere in the wastelands of the Arabian desert gathered in their leader's tent at his request. He had an extraordinary story to tell. It began: "Behold, I have dreamed a dream; or, in other words, I have seen a vision." The vision that Lehi recounted to his family set the course for the civilization—and the conflict—chronicled in the Book of Mormon. The images he recounted and his son Nephi's interpretation of their symbolic value give readers of the Book of Mormon a pattern by which to understand their own journey through mortality. Lehi's dream was more than an extraordinary story that a weary traveler told his family; it set the course for his family for centuries, and can set our course as well.

In Lehi's Dream, world-renowned artist James C. Christensen provides a visual journey through Lehi's account and Nephi's interpretation of that dream, which serves both as an overarching theme of the Book of Mormon and its civilizations and as a unique and deeply personal template by which we can understand the Savior's plan of salvation. With more than a dozen new images created by James C. Christensen specifically for the book, and thought-provoking text by gospel scholar Robert L. Millet, Lehi's Dream is a valuable new contribution to the world of Latter-day Saint art and literature.; 6" x 9"; 80 pages,

16 Life's Lessons Learned - Personal Reflections

Oaks, Dallin H.New in New Dust Jacket, Deseret Book, 2011, Salt Lake City, UT

Hardcover



Brand new hardcover book! %%

; "I have learned things that have shaped my life and teachings, including some things of the heart not previously shared," writes Elder Dallin H. Oaks in the introduction to this unique book. "This is an autobiography of learning and application rather than a compendium of doctrine."

Masterfully blending personal experiences with the doctrines of the gospel, Elder Oaks invites us to join him on a journey through some of the turning points in his life and the lessons he has learned through a lifetime of devotion to the Savior.

The short but potent chapters offer perceptive observations into such diverse topics as the purpose of adversity, the importance of respecting those with whom we disagree personally or politically, the merits and limitations of law, the blessings of tithing, the seeming conflict between science and religion, the Lord's use of imperfect people to further His work, and the power of the Atonement to recover those who have fallen behind.

Elder Oaks also relates the very personal lessons he learned from the death of his wife, June, and from his subsequent marriage to Kristen McMain.

Woven throughout the book is Elder Oak's powerful testimony of the Savior and His mission. Life's Lessons Learned is a rare glimpse into the experiences of the heart that have shaped the life of an Apostle of God.; 6" x 9"; 165 pages,

Why I Stay -  The Challenges of Discipleship for Contemporary Mormons, Rees, Robert A. (Editor)
17 Why I Stay - The Challenges of Discipleship for Contemporary Mormons

Rees, Robert A. (Editor)New, Signature Books, 2011, 

Hardcover



Brand New Book. ; Mormonism is a community with two faces: progressive and conservative. This is true of nearly all faith traditions, which can be alternately open or defensive, traditional or innovative, accepting or judgmental. In the case of the LDS Church, it continues, a century after having shaken off the stigma of polygamy, three decades after embracing blacks as equals, and in the face of international growth, to wrestle with freeing itself from its past insularity. In doing so, it will find its place within the larger religious world and its accommodation to the challenges of modernism.

This all represents a challenge for individual members, especially for artists, scholars, and independent thinkers. The poet Robert Haas has made a distinction between religion, which is “communal worship centered on shared ideas of the sacred,” and spirituality, which “has to do with the individual soul’s struggle with its own meaning.” In this anthology, sixteen Latter-day Saints explain how they balance the demands of religion and spirituality in the modern Church. It brings to mind the example of LDS educator Lowell Bennion who offered the image of carrying water on both shoulders to explain the binary nature of balancing faith with reason, institutional commitment with individual integrity, obedience with love.

It is encouraging to discover so many Latter-day saints who, the editor writes, “neither stay with their faith blindly nor leave it rebelliously, but rather choose to struggle with challenges and strive for a more mature discipleship.” The contributors to this anthology are Lavina Fielding Anderson, Mary Bradford, William Bradshaw, Claudia L. Bushman, Fred Christensen, Lael Littke, Armand Mauss, Chase Peterson, Grethe Peterson, J. Frederick “Toby” Pingree, Gregory Prince, Robert A. Rees, Tom Rogers, William D. Russell, Cherry Bushman Silver, and Morris Thurston.; 5.25" x 9.5"; 250 pages,

Hardcover



Brand new hardcover book! %%

; Though George Albert Smith’s generation knew, revered, and respected his life and teachings, he has been relatively unknown among contemporary Latter-day Saints — until now. Rich with anecdotes and passages from his correspondence and journals, this historical narrative portrays the private life of George Albert Smith within the framework of his public image, consistently revealing the noble character and endearing personality of one of the Lord’s prophets.George Albert Smith’s years chronicle tremendous growth and change. As the nation progresses from bicycle to automobile to airplane, a “horrid” boy branded as the neighborhood terror becomes a humble yet mighty man who “excels in human kindness.” His transformation begins in the fires of childhood illness and young romance and continues as this gangly traveling salesman serves as a missionary and an Apostle, weathers extensive and chronic health problems, and finally stands as a prophet during the first general conference of the Church after the end of World War II. Every page tells an engaging story of great struggle, faith, and loyalty. And at its center is the enduring love between George Albert Smith and Lucy Woodruff, the girl whose long, black braids he once dipped in ink and tied to a tree.; 6.25" x 9.25"; 244 pages,
