Latter-day Saint Life

"The Mormons"—The Perfect Book for Christmas


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 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.

The Mormons: An Illustrated History of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints offers perspectives on the Church’s core values by those who practice and adhere to the faith every day. The book not only treats the origins, beliefs, and practices of the Church, and the lifestyle of its members, but 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. 

From an award-winning international press, this new volume relates the basics of Mormonism in a conversational and non-threatening style. It 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.   

 “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.”—T abb Clements, Association for Mormon Letters
