New Book Released to Help You "Hasten the Work"


Read this stunning new pictorial introduction to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints—to share with family, friends and neighbors:

The Mormons:  An Illustrated History of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints

Edited by Roy A. Prete 

Termed a “visual masterpiece,” this new picture documentary of the LDS Church features stunning photos by award-winning photographers such as Don Busath and Val Brinkerhoff to relate the basics of Mormonism in a conversational and non-threatening style.

From an award-winning international press, this new volume is ideal to lend to a friend or neighbor, who may be interested in learning more about the gospel, but may not yet be ready to receive the missionaries. It is also a wonderful gift for new members to help them make their way in the gospel. 

The Mormons: An Illustrated History of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was written by a team of faithful Latter-day Saint scholars, including Susan Easton Black, John W. Welch, and Lloyd D, Newell, the narrator of “Music and the Spoken Word.” In brief and beautifully illustrated chapters, the book traces the LDS Church from its organization in 1830 by Joseph Smith, through the migration west under Brigham Young, to the massive expansion and globalization of the Church in recent decades.

This new book offers perspectives on the Church’s core values by those who practice and adhere to the faith every day. It not only treats the origins, beliefs and practices of the Church, and the lifestyle of its members, but it also has chapters on education, humanitarian aid, temple building, family history and the acceleration of missionary work. There is even a chapter on celebrity Mormons, including leaders in entertainment, sports, business, science and government! 

“This is more than a stunning see, more than an incredible read, it is also a deep heart-felt feel that will speak not only to you, but also to all those who open its pages . . . . Every LDS home should have a ready-to-share copy.”—Tabb Clements, Association for Mormon Letters
