BYU EASTER CONFERENCE
Each year, Religious Education at BYU, through the Department of Ancient Scripture and the Religious Studies Center, sponsors the annual BYU Easter Conference. Each year, a General Authority emeritus or former Church leader is invited to give the keynote address. Accompanying the keynote speaker are other teachers, educators, scholars, authors, speakers, historians, or experts on Christ. All the speakers talk about the Savior, his life, his mission, the Atonement, and his influence in our lives today. Attending the BYU Easter Conference is becoming a popular pre-Easter must-do event because it is an ideal way to prepare to celebrate the Easter season. The last one was attended by thousands of people. Perhaps you should make it a point to attend the next BYU Easter Conference, which will be scheduled close to Easter.
Below are samples of past speakers with the keynote speakers in bold.
2013: Elder John M. Madsen (with Brent L. Top and Brad Wilcox)
2012: Elder Gary J. Coleman (with Andrew C. Skinner and Gaye Strathearn)
2011: Elder John H. Groberg (with Sandra Rogers and Charles Swift)
2010: Elder Gerald N. Lund (with Robert L. Millet and Daniel L. Belnap)
2009: Sister Bonnie D. Parkin (with Kent P. Jackson and Lynne Hilton Wilson)
Every other year we publish a book that contains the talks from two year's of conferences. Below are the last two books published by the RSC, including the last one (on the left), which contains both the 2013 and 2012 Easter Conference presentations. These books focus on Christ and make an excellent quick-read book that can be purchased for yourself or for someone you love.
Both books can be purchased at BYU Bookstore, Deseret Book, or wherever LDS books are sold.
