The Saints Abroad

Missionaries Who Answered Brigham Young’s 1852 Call to the Nations of the World

Edited by Reid L. Neilson and R. Mark Melville

By 1852, just five years after Brigham Young and his fellow Latter-day Saints began settling the valleys of the Intermountain West, the global distribution of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was much more European than American. Young and his counselors in the First Presidency planned a special missionary conference in the newly constructed adobe Salt Lake Tabernacle on the temple block. Over the weekend of August 28–29, Church leaders announced a flurry of global mission assignments.

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.
