Description:

Deification has been a difficult theological concept for mankind to accept. St. Augustine's doctrine of original sin and the depravity of man helped spur on a deep skepticism to the idea that God's children could become anything like God, let alone progressing to the eventual state of gods or goddesses. Latter-day Saints have often been cautious about broaching the topic of deification around most Catholics and...

To call the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls the archaeological find of the twentieth century is an understatement. The world's understanding of Judaism and early Christianity has been increased to such a degree that I would not hesitate to call it the greatest contribution to non-LDS biblical studies since the Reformation.

Description:

For Nestorius and the Nestorian Church, God was clearly not a separate species, but a true Father in Heaven that man could eventually become like, as children of any father are wont to do. Rome's insistence on a non-scriptural Trinitarian God was so antithetical to what the church in Constantinople subscribed that a Great Schism between East and West eventually occurred in the eleventh century.

Description:

While one of the greatest strengths of Mormonism is its missionary program, many public libraries lack objective and concise information for the curious investigator concerning the Church. All too frequently the only offerings are anti-Mormon in tone and content—some of them subtly so—and are therefore very confusing for a seeker looking for a balanced view of a new religion. This information gap is exactly...

Description:

Hugh Winder Nibley is known for the diversity of his writings and activities, which compare more easily to the impressionistic music of Debussy than to the works of an orderly Beethoven or to an inexhaustible smorgasbord of culinary delights than to a formal seven-course banquet. His life calls for an equally diverse and interesting biography, which is provided by his son-in-law, Boyd Jay Petersen.

"You can often tell a book by its cover" is a modified adage we librarians have followed for decades. But it is apparently also true for artists, one of whom saw me with Ogden and Skinners book in hand. Her comment was, "That must be a fine book if it uses Caravaggio's inspired painting Supper at Emmaus as the cover art."

Description:

Hugh Nibley began serious research on One Eternal Round as early as 1988. When Nibley's long-time colleague Michael D. Rhodes took over the project following Nibley's death in 2005, he was faced with thirty boxes of research notes and drafts, 450 computer files, and as many as twenty versions of one chapter. Fortunately, Michael is familiar with most of Nibley's prodigious output, as well as the...

Description:

Scholarly friends of the Church have become increasingly numerous in recent years: Jan Shipps, Margaret Barker, Richard J. Mouw, and Douglas J. Davies, to name a few. Other friends resonate with some truths of the gospel unwittingly: Bart D. Ehrman, James Charlesworth, Elaine Pagels, Karen Armstrong, and many others. Pastors as friends are much more rare, however, given the problems Joseph Smith and many Latter-day...

Description:

Even though there is no substitute for experiencing selfless spiritual service of the highest order, receiving personal revelation, and basking in the refulgent atmosphere of the House of the Lord, the scriptures and other writings about the temple can prepare our hearts and minds so that we are more able to take full advantage of this sacred work. Two recently published books will take you out of the world and into...

Description:

The Gospel, the Epistles, and the Revelation of John the Beloved have given the Saints a unique perspective of Jesus Christ and his teachings. The preface of The Testimony of John the Beloved reminds us that this Apostle's writings contain "some of the most profound events, specific prophecies, and significant doctrines recorded in all of ancient scripture."
