Bestsellers: 'Expressions of Faith' Repeats at #1, 'First Vision' Debuts at #3

NEW YORK, NEW YORK -- The compilation of artwork by Greg Olsen "Expressions of Faith" stayed at #1 on the LDS Bestsellers list while the new children's book "The First Vision" debuted at #3 on the list and "The Teachings of Gordon B. Hinckley" remained at #2. This represents the first time that the nascent list has remained this stable from week to week. Meanwhile, the Mormon titles on the national bestseller lists are nothing but stable,with both "Nothing Like it in the World" and Stephen Covey's "The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People" remaining on the lists in about the same position.

Also new on the LDS Bestsellers list is Deseret Book's recently released "GospeLink 2001 Demo Version" a $5 60-day trial to the computer resource and the compilation CD "Women of Destiny." However, with the LDS Church's General Conference approaching, the list may see significant changes over the next week as sales from conference weekend are reflected. Many LDS retailers, especially in Utah, organize special events at Conference time.

The current titles on US National bestseller lists are:
