About the Book

Volume 13 in the Occasional Papers Series

Hundreds of sketches and blueprints unfold Church history from an architect’s point of view. This volume takes readers on a visual journey from the Peter Whitmer log home, where the Church was organized, to the Kirtland and Nauvoo temples, moving on to pioneer-era meetinghouses and tabernacles, and then featuring our modern stake and ward buildings. Hundreds of sketches trace the progression in meetinghouse design from the infancy of the Church to its transformation into a major world religion.
