An Apostolic Journey

Stephen L Richards and the Expansion of Missionary Work in South America

By Richard E. Turley and Clinton D. Christensen

Today, it’s hard to imagine Apostles not being able to visit any part of the world. But the Saints in South America waited twenty years between visits. Follow the experiences in 1948 of Apostle Stephen L Richards and his wife Irene in Argentina, Brazil, and Uruguay that changed the course of the Church in Latin America. In addition, the book has a prologue and epilogue that tell the history of the Church in Latin America before and after the Richardses’ visit.

Life Beyond the Grave

Christian Interfaith Perspectives

Edited by Alonzo L. Gaskill and Robert L. Millet

Surely no subject has captured the attention of men and women like that of death and the life beyond. Millions have sought with Job for answers to the timeless question, “If a man die, shall he live again?” (Job 14:14). And if there is a future state, what is its nature? How best may mortal men and women prepare for it? Indeed, death has ever remained life’s most awesome mystery. In this book, representatives of different Christian faiths draw on their distinctive religious traditions to address the topics of death and what lies beyond the grave.

Business & Religion

The Intersection of Faith and Finance

Edited by Matthew C. Godfrey and Michael Hubbard MacKay

Historians have increasingly examined how economics and business have influenced religion and religious practices, and these examinations have provided better understandings of race, gender, and ethnicity within American religion. As one scholar has noted, looking at the intersection of economics and religion “allows historians in a given place and time to rethink what is going on in a broad sweep of the American religious experience.” The BYU Church History Symposium highlighted that the field of economics and finance have much to offer to Latter-day Saint history.
