Glimpses of Eternity offers significant new insights concerning life after death. the book reports more than forty first-person accounts of individuals who died, went into the Spirit World, and then returned to mortality. Scientists call such events a near-death experience (NDE). Research has been undertaken on this subject in many studies during recent decades. These new accounts confirm past findings, but also report dramatic unexpected results which haven't been previously identified. the author conducted carefully structured interviews with individuals who had journeyed beyond the veil. the exact transcriptions of these interviews are presented in the first half of the book. Then, portions of the various accounts are compiled and analyzed for the doctrinal implications they contain. These two approaches combine to make this intriguing book a powerful witness that life continues after death and that death should not be feared. As one lady stated: Death is ... nothing to be feared. It's an awakening ... This book, prepared with careful observance of the principles of empirical research, is a major contribution to the field of near-death research. It also supplies answers to many LDS questions about entry into the Spirit World: life's purpose, the light and tunnel, the life review judgment before Jesus Christ, the power and love of God, and differing views of the spirit world and of human destiny. It suggests an eternal pain-free life filled with light, truth, knowledge, growth, creating, and exuberant joy.

Founder of the largest indigenous Christian church in American history, Joseph Smith published the 584-page Book of Mormon when he was twenty-three and went on to organize a church, found cities, and attract thousands of followers before his violent death at age thirty-eight. Richard Bushman, an esteemed cultural historian and a practicing Mormon, moves beyond the popular stereotype of Smith as a colorful fraud to explore his personality, his relationships with others, and how he received revelations. An arresting narrative of the birth of the Mormon Church, Joseph Smith: Rough Stone Rolling also brilliantly evaluates the prophet’s bold contributions to Christian theology and his cultural place in the modern world. From the Trade Paperback edition.

When award-winning documentary film writer Jane Barnes was working on the PBS Frontline/American Experience special series The Mormons, she was surprised to find herself passionately drawn to Joseph Smith. The product of an Episcopalian, “WASPy” family, she couldn’t remember ever having met a Mormon before her work on the series—much less having dallied with the idea of converting to a religion shrouded in controversy. But so it was: She was smitten with a man who claimed to have translated the word of God by peering into the dark of his hat. In this brilliantly written book, Barnes describes her experiences working on the PBS series as she moved from secular curiosity to the brink of conversion to Mormonism. It all began when she came across Joseph Smith's early writings. She was delighted to discover how funny and utterly unique he was—and how widely divergent his wild yet profound visions of God were from the Church of Latter-day Saints as we know it today. Her fascination deepened when, much to her surprise, she learned that her eighth cousin Anna Barnes converted to Mormonism in 1833. Through Anna, Barnes follows her family’s close involvement with Smith and the crises caused by his controversial practice of polygamy. Barnes’ unlikely path helps her gain a newfound respect for the innovative American spirit that lies at the heart of Mormonism—and for a religion that is, in many ways, still coming into its own. An intimate portrait of the man behind one of America’s fastest growing religions, Falling in Love with Joseph Smith offers a surprising and provocative window into the Mormon experience.

Church History 1805 to 1832. This volume is the first of three on Church History and the Doctrine and Covenants. It covers Church history and the revelations in the Doctrine and Covenants from the birth of Joseph Smith in 1805 through the beginnings of the Kirtland and Missouri periods. We learn concerning the First Vision, the coming forth of the Book of Mormon, the restoration of the priesthood, and many early revelations given to individual members of the Church. We study the organization of the Church in 1830 and the migration of the Saints to Kirtland, Ohio, where the law and order of the Church is given, the law of consecration begins, and spiritual gifts are manifested. We also read concerning the early events in Missouri, where the land of Zion is dedicated for the gathering of the Saints. In all, it covers 27 years of Church History, and covers sections 1-99 of the Doctrine and Covenants and the Joseph Smith History in the Pearl of Great Price. The cover features "Young Joseph," a painting of the Prophet Joseph Smith pondering in the Sacred Grove, by Walter Rane.
