by Casey Paul Griffiths, Susan Easton Black, and Mary Jane Woodger

1DID YOU KNOW…

  • Brigham Young made significant changes to the structure of the Church, most of which are still in place today?
  • Communist leader of East Germany invited the Church to build a temple in their country.

BYU Church history professors Casey Paul Griffiths, Susan Easton Black, and Mary Jane Woodger have written engaging vignettes about our history, ranging from familiar events, such as the First Vision, the trek west, and the origin of Primary, to not-so-familiar events, such as the retrenchment movement, the political manifesto, and the beginnings of seminaries and institutes.

IN 100 SHORT CHAPTERS, YOU’LL…

  • Discover intriguing facts about the Church, you didn’t know before.
  • Gain a greater appreciation for the role of living prophets in the unfolding restoration of the gospel and an ever-changing world.
  • Learn more about lesser-known and even surprising events in the history of the Latter-day Saints.

 

changed through His grace

by Brad Wilcox

2“Have you been changed by grace?” In this insightful book, Brad Wilcox explores this life-altering question in depth. Christians throughout the centuries have used grace to describe God’s favor, good will, and love. However, grace is more than a description of God’s attributes. It is the help, power, and strength He offers as we choose to engage with Him in striving to attain those attributes. Grace is different from the Atonement. It is not Christ’s suffering, death, and Resurrection. Rather, grace is the power that flows from those sacred moments. Grace is not a priesthood ordinance, but essential ordinances invite greater and greater endowments of grace into our lives. Grace is a divine gift, but like any gift, it must be received.

In this book, Brother Wilcox uses real-life stories and personal experiences to demonstrate how we can choose to receive Christ’s grace more fully. In addition to using Paul’s teachings in the Bible, Brother Wilcox draws from the scriptures of the Restoration, the teachings of modern prophets, and sacred hymns to explain complex doctrines in simple and memorable ways. This allows us to understand how a covenant relationship with God and Christ can help us and those we love escape the bondage of addictions. He teaches how through the Holy Ghost–the messenger of grace–God can strengthen and save but also transform us.

This book is filled with hope. God’s help is not a prize for the righteous. It is the source of righteousness. His grace is not a reward for the worthy. It is the source of worthiness. It is not waiting for us once we change. It is the power we need throughout the entire perfecting process.

 

at the pulpit: 185 years of discourses by latter-day saint women

From the banks of the frozen Lake Erie in early May 1831, Lucy Mack Smith admonished 3her despondent fellow Saints. “Where is your faith in God?” she asked. “If I could make my voice to sound as loud as the trumpet of Michael the archangel I would declare the truth from land to land and from sea to sea.”

At the Pulpit contains fifty-four discourses given by Latter-day Saint women throughout the history of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Like Lucy Mack Smith, these women drew on inspiration and experience to declare their understanding of eternal truths. This book illustrates the history of women’s public preaching in the church, but its most important feature is the actual words of Mormon women. From the time of Emma Hale Smith’s earliest exhortations at meetings of the Nauvoo Relief Society, Latter-day Saint women have been charged to instruct their families and neighbors, their congregations and Relief Societies, and other organizations. The talks featured in this volume show Mormon women doing the spiritual and intellectual work inherent in a life of Christian faith–seeking to do good works, understand the atonement of Jesus Christ, and strengthen their own faith and the faith of those around them. These women endeavored to live what they believed and to help their listeners do so as well.

Written to the high scholarly standards of the Church Historian’s Press, this book provides a resource for contemporary Latter-day Saints as they study, speak, teach, and lead. Each discourse in this volume begins with an introduction that acquaints readers with the vibrant personalities of some of the women who have shaped the church. Introductions also provide glimpses into the circumstances and forces that shaped these women. Readers will encounter some familiar figures from church history and from the contemporary church–leaders like Eliza R. Snow and Linda K. Burton, current Relief Society general president. But they will also learn from women like Jane H. Neyman, whose stories are largely unknown to modern Latter-day Saints. Neyman applied to join the Nauvoo Relief Society in 1842, but her petition was rejected due to gossip about her daughters. Over twenty-five years later, she spoke in a Relief Society in Beaver, Utah, on charity, urging members to be forbearing and forgiving of one another.

The voices in these pages ring from Nauvoo’s red brick store to the National Auditorium in Mexico City to the Tabernacle on Temple Square and beyond. These discourses offer instruction on gospel principles while also revealing the particular concerns of individual women. At the Pulpit allows us to hear the historical and contemporary voices of Latter-day Saint women–voices that resound with experience, wisdom, and authority.

 

His Majesty and Mission

by Sheri Dew, Eric D. Huntsman, Daniel K. Judd, Camille Front Olson, Hank R. Smith, and Kevin J. Worthen

4Christianity rises or falls based on the reality of the Resurrection, and Christian religious leaders of all walks have commented on the importance of the Resurrection. “It is the living Christ of whom the Apostles testify. His Resurrection is the greatest single affirmation of His divinity and the power and reach of His atoning sacrifice,” says Elder Kevin J. Worthen, president of Brigham Young University. He continues, “Christ not only current leads His church; He is also active in our lives today–if we let Him. He knocks at the door and waits for us to invite Him into our lives, and when we do, we will find the truth of the apostolic witness that ‘His way is the path that leads to happiness in this life and eternal life in the world to come.'”

Accordingly, this volume celebrates the living Christ and the miracle of the Resurrection. The essays published in this volume represent the papers presented at the annual Brigham Young University Easter Conferences in 2016 and 2017. In this volume, readers will find the personal witnesses and testimonies of faithful disciples who have devoted their lives to understanding the Savior’s majesty and mission. May their careful, heartfelt, and inspired words take root in your heart and bring you to a deeper, more personal conviction of the central role Jesus Christ and his Resurrection have in the eternal welfare of all God’s children.
