New Products: Current Books on Suffering
NEW YORK, NEW YORK -- Among the many new LDS products being released this
Fall, two new books seem especially relevant this week because they look at
suffering. Joyce and Dennis Ashton's "Jesus Wept" takes a comprehensive look
at the trials we face in our lives, giving practical techniques and insights
to help deal with grief. Meanwhile, former BYU professor Wayne Brickey's
"Making Sense of Suffering" also looks at suffering and grief, from a
doctrinal and inspirational perspective.
Also of interest this week is Excel Entertainment's new CD-ROM "Joseph Smith
The Seer," an interactive look at the life and influence of the prophet,
including music by Kenneth Cope, artwork by Liz Lemon Swindle, and
interviews of many LDS authorities on Joseph Smith.
