New Products: The Kindness Handbook, Evolution and Mormonism
NEW YORK, NEW YORK -- A group of Mormon scholars took on the
sometimes controversial subject of Evolution in a recent book from
Signature Books, while a new Deseret Book title gives practical
advice on helping others through adversity. The scholars who wrote
"Evolution and Mormonism" include BYU professor Duane Jeffrey, and
they approach evolution from a belief in the gospel, managing to
reconcile the findings of science with that belief.
Also new is "The Kindness Handbook," a guide for how to help those in
need, or not help as the situation may require. The book covers a
multitude of situations, including major surgery, death, divorce, and
unemployment. Meanwhile, the University of Illinois Press is
releasing "Mormon History," a scholarly look at how Mormons have told
their history since the founding of the Church.
