Living Scriptures Video Series Gets Attention at Film Sites
Three-time Oscar winner Jack Nicholson may have to wait for his chance to film a new movie while history is being recorded by Heber J. Grant, Lorenzo Snow and Harold B. Lee. The prophets will be filming first, as the historical site of the Stuhr Museum in Grand Island, Nebraska is going Hollywood. The drama, part of a 14-episode series being filmed by "The Living Scriptures," follows the lives of the prophets of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

At BYU-Hawaii, Card Tells Students How to Write
Orson Scott Card, well known-novelist and member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, has found his own way to meld his religious beliefs and his creative writing. Earlier in his career, he briefly attempted to separate his personal moral compass from his writings. He was, by his own admission, mostly unsuccessful in the attempt. Now, realizing that his religious perspective is part of "who he is," Card is comfortable with the results that come from his harmonization of the sacred and the secular. "What I do as a Mormon writer is no different than what you do as a Mormon insurance salesman, a Mormon student, a Mormon clerk at the grocery store, a Mormon doctor, that is, I try to make everything I do a part of life as a Latter-day Saint," he said.

New Products: The Kindness Handbook, Evolution and Mormonism
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.
