News from Utah

“Teachings of Thomas S. Monson,” a companion to last year’s biography, “To the Rescue,” is scheduled to be on store shelves Sept. 23, Deseret Book officials announced Thursday at the LDS Booksellers Association conference.

“There’s probably not been a prophet that has had more time teaching in the church,” said Laurel Christensen, Deseret Book's vice president of product development. “There are 50 years worth of sermons from President Monson.”

Other new books and products were also announced Thursday.

Christensen also announced the Sept. 27 release of “Life’s Lessons Learned,” a book by Elder Dallin H. Oaks. In the book, Elder Oaks uses personal stories from his childhood to illustrate principles.

“Elder Oaks isn’t necessarily known for being overly personal when he speaks, particularly in general conference, and these are stories that are very, very personal,” Christensen said.
