Salt Lake Tribune Looks at Recent LDS Books

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH -- Utah authors are publishing a number of faith-based books this summer and all are guaranteed to teach and entertain. "On This Day in the Church: An Illustrated Almanac of the Latter-day Saints," by co-authors Richard Neitzel Holzapfel, Alexander L. Baugh, Robert C. Freeman and Andrew H. Hedges encourage readers to find out "What happened in church history on your birthday?" The authors have produced a book that shows off their research skills without being exhausting. The oversized illustrated hardcover book is from Eagle Gate and available at $32.95.

"Ten Times Ten" marks another milestone commemorating the first 100 temples, with text and artwork by Chad Hawkins. An opening map locates each temple, from Kirtland to Boston. A brief history accompanies each drawing and a portion of each dedicatory prayer is included. The book has a full-color centerpiece and is available for $39.95.

A more human side of church history has been collected by Larry E. Morris in "A Treasury of Latter-day Saint Letters." J. Willard Marriott's brief 1958 letter to "Dear Gordon," as he is being called as an assistant to the Twelve is quoted. "His call was a blow, a complete surprise." The book is from Deseret Book's Eagle Gate and available for $19.95.

"The First Vision" is rich with vivid illustrations by Cary Austin and Greg Newbold. It was written by the prophet Joseph Smith (albeit abridged) and is a good bedtime story for little children.

Other books include "Letters for Emily, by Camron Steve Wright," Dad Was a Carpenter," by Kenny Kemp, "Married for Better, Not Worse," by Stephen R. Covey and "The Fourteen Secrets to a Happy Marriage," by the Lundbergs.
