Terryl L. Givens is one of our distinguished authors and is presenting the final lecture in a four part series called “The Choice to Believe.” He is going to be focusing his lecture on temple work and the impact it had on the Restoration. The lecture will be held today at 4 PM in the Varsity Theater in the WILK. 

In honor of him, we are featuring his in-depth article – Lightning Out of Heaven: Joseph Smith and the Forging of Community – which is about Joseph Smith, his teachings, and how he attracted loyal followers and created his community.
