New Products: Mormon Self Help Books

NEW YORK, NEW YORK -- This fall's new titles include several books that are meant to help LDS Church members and others help themselves out of life's most difficult challenges. These include an LDS billionaire's look at finding balance, a look at homosexuality, and help with grieving. But to pick up the spirits, we've also included a new Christmas album.

Perhaps the most under-promoted of this week's titles is "Finding True Balance" by LDS billionaire James Sorenson. Sorenson is not as well known as LDS businessmen like Jon Huntsman and J. Willard Marriott, Jr., but his book should be better promoted given his success and influence.

Another interesting title is Dr. A. Dean Byrd's look at Homosexuality both in LDS doctrine and in science. Dr. Byrd takes on a difficult subject, and tries to provide a book that will help both those who suffer and their families.

New and recent products:

Finding True Balance by James LeVoy Sorenson
Book; LDS Publisher; Non-fiction; Mormon Author and Subject $15.95

Billionaire LDS businessman James Sorenson shares his view of how to achieve balance in our personal lives and social interactions. He says that "balance is the secret of life," and maintains that those who have trouble achieving it may "have a mistaken idea of what balance is. Balance is not something we attain, a plateau we reach, a destination we arrive at. True balance is continuous, changing, and creative."

Homosexuality and the Church of Jesus Christ by A. Dean Byrd
