New 'Temples' booklet coming to Church magazine subscribers

Ensign and Liahona magazines subscribers soon will be greeted with something special in their mailboxes. In place of the regular October edition of either magazine, they will receive a new, updated version of the booklet "Temples of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints."

The 81-page, full-color publication includes updated photos of many of the Church's existing temples, plus doctrinal articles by President Thomas S. Monson and other Church leaders present and past.

A wraparound cover that encloses the booklet for mailing purposes contains an explanatory message. It notes that the decision to revise the booklet was made more than a year ago.

"The booklet was out of print in some languages, and members were asking how they could get a copy," the message explains. "Rather than reprint a booklet that did not contain a message from President Thomas S. Monson and ignored the scores of temples that have been built since the last edition was printed, the First Presidency and Quorum of the Twelve Apostles approved the creation of an updated edition."
