On September 4, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints released the first church history in nearly a century, Saints: The Story of the Church of Jesus Christ in the Latter Days. Unlike past histories, this book brings the stories of past members to life with vivid storytelling that doesn't shy away from controversial church topics, such as polygamy, Joseph Smith's plural wives, seer stones, etc. The book—which is available in 14 different languages in the Gospel Library app and through saints.lds.org, Deseret Book, Amazon, and Barnes & Noble—is groundbreaking in many ways. Here are just a few reasons members should consider reading Saints.
