Harris, James P.New in New Dust Jacket, Signature Books, Salt Lake City, UT


Brand new hardcover book! Never been read! ; Latter-day Saints were stunned in 1911 to learn that the interior of the Salt Lake temple had been secretly photographed and that perpetrators were demanding a $100,000 ransom for the photos. As church leaders considered their options, former University of Utah president James E. Talmage proposed that the First Presidency commission its own photos, which they did, authorizing Talmage to write his landmark House of the Lord. As the manuscript and photos were being readied for press, the presidency appointed the forty-nine-year-old educator to the Quorum of Twelve Apostles. This was not the first time that Talmage had been of service to his church. As a geology professor, he was consulted about underground ventilation options for the Salt Lake Tabernacle and about the scientific evidence for organic evolution, which he cautiously promoted. At the church president's request, Talmage also delivered a series of lectures on church theology which would form the basis for his later influential books; Classics in Mormon Thought Series No. 5 Series; 6" x 9"; 334 pages,

SAN BERNARDINO - The Rise and Fall of a California Community, Lyman, Edward Leo
2 SAN BERNARDINO - The Rise and Fall of a California Community

Lyman, Edward LeoNew in New Dust Jacket, Signature Books, Salt Lake City, UT


Brand new hardcover book! Never been read! ; In the mid-1800s San Bernardino emerged as one of the largest settlements in southern California. It surpassed Pueblo de los Angeles and San Diego in grain and lumber yields and boasted a burgeoning cattle industry and promising wine vineyards. But as a Mormon commune--the farthest outpost in Brigham Young's Rocky Mountain empire--the colony was threatened, and finally abandoned, in 1857 during the Utah war with the United States. From the beginning, Young had misgivings about the colony. Particularly perplexing was the mix of atypical Latter-day Saints who gravitated there. Among these were ex-slave holders; inter-racial polygamists; horse-race gamblers; distillery proprietors; former mountain men, prospectors, and mercenaries; disgruntled Polynesian immigrants; and finally Apostle Amasa M. Lyman, the colony's leader, who became involved in spiritualist seances. Despite Young's suspicions, when he issued the call to relocate to Utah, two-thirds of the city's 3,000 residents dutifully obeyed, leaving behind their cumulative fortunes and a city stripped of its regional economic standing. Recounting this remarkable story, Edward Leo Lyman skillfully interweaves the most intriguing details about the setting and chain of events, emphasizing both the significance and irony of this diverse legacy. ; 6" x 9"; 484 pages,

Madsen, Brigham D.New in New Dust Jacket, Signature Books, Salt Lake City, UT


Brand new hardcover book! Never been read! ; Although Brigham H. Roberts was an LDS general authority, he was by public consensus and his own admission an intellectual. Consequently, and due to the painfully earnest, meticulous way he approached any issue of consequence and his intimate familiarity with Western thought, he occasionally appeared to be knowingly contradictory. Readers are therefore left to judge whether he vacillated over time, tailored his message to the audience on a "milk-before-meat" principle, or was comfortable camouflaging his real intent in metaphor. On one occasion Roberts defended the traditional Mormon view of the godhead—perfected men who "eat, drink ... And procreate" as exalted mortals; another time he seemed less comfortable imposing limitations on a God who cannot be fixed to a single location, for whom Jesus was a mortal incarnation, and for whom the term "trinity" seemed more eloquent than the "presidency of heaven. " His most famous and penetrating analysis focused on the Book of Mormon. In this collection Roberts discusses the mode of its translation, while stopping short of saying that God, who speaks to humans in their own language, could have authored the inconsistent grammar that appeared luminously in Joseph Smith's seer stone. Instead he credits this to Smith's own linguistic contribution, thereby preserving for God a fitting transcendence. Later Roberts went so far as to question the Book of Mormon's historicity. A final example of Roberts's complexity: He proclaimed in public the perfect unity and harmony found at church conferences, but he privately castigated his colleagues for what he considered to be obstinance. He once asked what additional, irrational proposal "may occur to some genius" in the Quorum of the Twelve.; Classics in Mormon Thought Series No. 6 Series; 6" x 9"; 350 pages,

Women of the New Testament, Olson, Camille Fronk and Paintings by Elspeth Young and others
4 Women of the New Testament

Olson, Camille Fronk and Paintings by Elspeth Young and othersNew in New Dust Jacket, Deseret Book, 2014, Salt Lake City, UT


Brand New Book. ; During his mortal ministry, the Lord Jesus Christ loved, taught, healed, and interacted with numerous women. More than fifty specific women are introduced in the New Testament, with multitudes of others numbered among the Savior's followers. Whether these women were identified individually by name or simply mentioned as a devout follower in the crowd, their stories of sacrifice and eager service have rich meaning and application for our lives today.

In this well-researched and richly illustrated companion volume to Women of the Old Testament, author Camille Fronk Olson focuses on many of these remarkable women and explores the influence of Jesus Christ and his gospel on women living in the meridian of time.

It may be surprising to learn that their challenges and personal struggles are not unlike our own. From his beloved mother, to a quiet woman in a crowd, to two sisters each desiring to serve the Lord in her own unique way, to a woman weighed down by sin, they bore a powerful witness of the Savior before and during his earthly ministry. Others, including Lydia, Phebe, and Prisca, proclaimed truth and labored to spread the gospel after his Resurrection.

Amid traditions that frequently marginalized women or restricted them to certain roles, often defining them by their relationship to men, Jesus saw them first as individuals with agency to choose how they would use their God-given gifts.

With exquisite paintings created by the artists of Al Young Studios especially for this volume, Women of the New Testament provides illuminating perspectives on individual women whose examples of faith and devotion continue to inspire us today.

5 Women of the Old Testament

Olson, Camille Fronk and Paintings by Elspeth Young and othersNew in New Dust Jacket, Deseret Book, 2014, Salt Lake City, UT


Brand New Book. ; “Women were not invisible in those ancient days; it is time to bring them out of the shadows today.” — Camille Fronk Olson

From the beginning, women have been at the very heart of God’s plan. Women of the Old Testament focuses on some of these remarkable women whose struggles and life situations are not unlike our own. No two are the same. Some are affluent; others live in poverty. Most are married, but some are single. Some are born in the lineage of the prophets, and others come from the cultures of the world. Some have children; others do not. Some make their contributions from within a loving and supportive marriage. Others bring about much good while being married to an absent, abusive, or unfaithful husband. All of them have challenges, but each one has a divine potential to contribute to the Lord's work.

Bestselling author Camille Fronk Olson brings these women to life, going beyond the traditional scripture story to provide insights that are amazingly relevant today. Elspeth Young’s exquisite, full-color illustrations also reveal something about each woman’s life and the customs associated with her culture. A “Points to Ponder” section at the end of each chapter offers thoughtful questions to consider individually or in a discussion group.

Reader's Book of Mormon, Rees, Robert A. & England, Eugene
6 Reader's Book of Mormon

Rees, Robert A. & England, EugeneNew, Signature Books, 2008, 


Brand New Book. ; There are many ways to approach scripture. At times we search the sacred narratives for doctrinal understanding or theological insights. Other times we might be interested in historical, cultural, and linguistic issues. Another, more common, approach is to see ourselves in the narrative stories and interpret them based on our own personal journeys and intellectual and spiritual background—to draw lessons for our own lives.

With this in mind, literature and Mormon Studies scholars Robert A. Rees (UCLA) and the late Eugene England (BYU) asked prominent LDS writers to offer their own personal views on the Book of Mormon, followed by the scriptural text itself. Their insights should enhance the enjoyment and understanding of all readers. The text reprinted in this series comes from the first edition (1830) and retains its nineteenth-century usage; although a few glaring typesetting flaws have been corrected, no attempt has been made to regularize grammar and spelling. This should make reading the Book of Mormon a new adventure, hopefully full of possibilities for deeper insights into the layers of meaning and messages contained therein.

The contributors are Claudia L. Bushman, Susan Elizabeth Howe, Linda Hoffman Kimball, Douglas Thayer, Steven Walker, and William A. Wilson. ; seven vol. boxed set Series; 2.5 x 6.5 x 4.2 Inches; 1200 pages,

Proving Contraries -  A Collection of Writings in Honor of Eugene England, Rees, Robert A. & Eugene England
7 Proving Contraries - A Collection of Writings in Honor of Eugene England

Rees, Robert A. & Eugene EnglandNew in New Dust Jacket, Signature Books, 2005, 


; In honor of the late BYU Professor Eugene England (1933-2001) , friends and colleagues have contributed their best original stories, poems, reminiscences, scholarly articles, and essays for this impressive volume. In one essay, “Eugene England Enters Heaven, ” Robert A. Rees imagines his friend being welcomed into heaven by the Savior. Rees then imagines England "organizing contests between the Telestial and Celestial Kingdoms, leading a theater tour to Kolob, and pleading the cause of friends still struggling in mortality. This," he concludes, "is the image I have of Gene, that I hold in my heart."

from the dust jacket: Douglas Thayer writes about an atheist who believes in miracles. Karen Rosenbaum portrays a university student who is a closet believer (and sometimes a closet doubter). This kind of honesty portraying believable characters—in avoiding stereotypes and easy answers—comes from a lifetime of writing and thinking deeply about life.

The same applies to the non-fiction writers represented in this anthology. Dennis Marden Clark tells of following an inner compass to embrace pacifism but agonizing over the LDS Church’s history of militancy. Yet, in a close reading of LDS scripture, he has found much in the way of support for his position. This kind of life-informed erudition would have made his friend Eugene England proud.

Other essays pursue this topic of a lone scholar or independent thinker going against prevailing currents, not out of contrariness but due to personal conviction. Frances Menlove was with the Red Cross in New York City after 9/11. Her colleague, a BYU-Idaho professor, says “the common notion about there being no Democrats in Idaho is entirely false. On the contrary," he says, "there are thirty-eight Democrats in Idaho and [I am] one of them. ” What matters more than political party or church affiliation, Menlove emphasizes, is “humble service toward one another. ”

This theme is amplified by Mary Bradford in "Suddenly Single” as she cites the sage advice of Mormon historian Juanita Brooks’s father: “It is the cowboy who rides the edge of the herd, who sings and calls and makes himself heard, who helps direct the course. ” Bradford acknowledges pitfalls in such a stance and ponders the difference between selfish and unselfish individualism. But in the end, she says, we are all alone with our inner-selves.

One imagines Eugene England hovering nearby and smiling as his friends describe their philosophies of life. He was “a primary force in my being able to finally tell the hard stories my heart had learned so well, ” Margaret Blair Young relates about her former teacher. “He respected honesty in everything . . . And would tell me flat out when he didn’t care for one of my stories . . . Was I trying to give easy answers to hard questions? Was I digging deep enough? ” As a critic of his friends’ rough drafts and mentor to young writers, England’s influence was immense.

"Were you here, ” Robert A. Rees pens in his poem to Gene’s memory, “we would talk / of falling towers and civilizations and how / in dark times we hold poetry in our hearts. ” Walking on a rugged northern California beach, Rees inspects a log that probably stood for “as many years as you lived among us. / It too speaks through its multitude of markings— / curved lines, strange scribblings, deep scars. ”

Not easy to think and write beyond the limits of accepted norms, but satisfying trying to unify heart and mind in pursuit of high moral achievement as Eugene England did. His legacy of unfettered discussion and careful, faith-based examination of common assumptions continues as others consider life in the real world, an understanding of other people, and authenticity in word and deed. ; 6" x 9"; 310 pages,

Vogel, Dan (editor)New in New Dust Jacket, Signature Books, 2007, Salt Lake City, UT


Brand new hardcover book! Never been read! ; BEST DOCUMENTARY SERIES AWARD, JOHN WHITMER HISTORICAL ASSOCIATIONIn this series: Volume 1: Smith family and VermontVolume 2: Palmyra and environsVolume 3: Palmyra and environs cont. Volume 4: Colesville, S. Bainbridge, & HarmonyVolume 5: Fayette Who else, besides Joseph Smith, saw the gold plates from which the Book of Mormon was translated? Martin Harris, one of the Three Witnesses, said that he saw the holy record with his "spiritual eyes, " that the plates were otherwise kept concealed in a wooden box, wrapped in a cloth, and that nobody saw them. The Eight Witnesses, according to Harris, hesitated to sign a written testimonial for the same reason; they had not seen the plates with their natural eyes. Early Mormon Documents: Volume Two provides all of the available statements by Harris and Oliver Cowdery (other witnesses are featured in subsequent volumes) so that readers can judge for themselves the meaning of these testimonies. In addition, Harris and Cowdery recall Joseph Smith’s treasure hunting, his spiritual gifts, and the process of translating the gold plates. Together their accounts constitute a thoroughly documented, first-person narrative of Mormon origins. One section of Volume Two contains reminiscences by non-Mormon typesetter John Gilbert, whose contribution to the Book of Mormon has previously been inadequately acknowledged. When the printer’s manuscript was delivered to Gilbert’s office in downtown Palmyra, New York, it was unpunctuated—a stream of words without sentence breaks, commas, paragraph indentations, or capitalization—and Cowdery relied on Gilbert’s copy-editing skills. Smith was at the time living near his inlaws’ house in Pennsylvania. Gilbert’s interpretations have appeared in published editions of the Book of Mormon ever since. Finally, editor Dan Vogel has included in this volume interviews with the Smiths’ Palmyra neighbors. That "a prophet is not without honor except in his home town" was true in Joseph Smith’s case. When he announced that God had called him to do a "marvelous work, " people reacted with astonishment. Not that he was a particularly troublesome young man; he simply lacked the credentials usually associated with religious leadership. He was "a clever, jovial boy" with a penchant for adventure and mischief, according to neighbors, and one who enjoyed a whiskey-and-water with friends and occasionally got into a scuffle. Such adolescent behavior assumed sinister overtones only later in light of Joseph’s blossoming religiosity. His claims antagonized not only the pious members of the local society but also his former treasure-hunting companions. Meanwhile the local press lampooned his vision of the "spirit of the money diggers, " describing this apparition as "a little old man . . . Clad [in an] Indian blanket and moccasins" who spoke "reformed Egyptian. " Although similar bias is evident in some neighbors’ accounts, their memories are significant in instances where they corroborate statements made by Smith family members and early Mormon converts. In addition, some of Smith’s early acquaintances—John Stafford, the brothers Benjamin, Lorenzo, and Orlando Saunders—are "friendly sources, " according to Vogel. Others provide information about the general cultural environment. For instance, Willard Chase, whose sister was a village scryer, criticized Smith for having borrowed a seer stone without returning it. While Chase and others denied belief in mysticism, they nonetheless confirmed its prevalence in western New York. ; Vol. 2; 6" x 9"; 704 pages,

Brand new hardcover book! ; Terry Walker is an even-tempered, successful mathematics professor, comfortable with his world—the order and predictability of it. He likes the kind of life one lives in a quiet Salt Lake City subdivision. At his children's births, he masks his terror with numbers—his wife's contractions and dilations, blood pressure, heart rate. At funerals he absorbs his grief by calculating the cubic feet of earth the coffin and vault will displace. But control is illusive, something his fifteen-year-old son Blake never lets him forget. A sensitive boy, Blake has refused to eat meat since the time he could walk. Fearing he will hurt his friends' feelings, Blake withdraws from a spelling bee that he could easily win. More importantly, however, Blake harbors a secret that he keeps from Terry. ; 1.26 x 8.34 x 5.87 Inches; 372 pages,
