This volume explores events and teachings of the early years of the restoration of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Featuring scholars from Brigham Young University, the Church History Department, and the Joseph Smith Papers, the collection of prominent materials previously produced by the BYU Religious Studies Center is designed as a companion to personal and family study of the Doctrine and Covenants and Church history. Chapters explore Joseph Smith’s accounts of his First Vision, the translation of the Book of Mormon, and the restoration of priesthood power. Doctrinal teachings about consecration, Zion, the kingdoms of glory, and work for the dead are also investigated, as are harrowing experiences in Liberty and Carthage Jails and the exodus to the West.

Hales, Laura Harris, ed. A Reason for Faith: Navigating LDS Doctrine & Church History. Provo, UT: Religious Studies Center, Brigham Young University, 2016.

A Reason for Faith was written to do just as the title implies: provide reasons for faith by offering faithful answers to sincere questions. Before the Internet, historical and doctrinal questions not addressed in LDS Church curriculum were mostly found in the scholarly articles of academic journals. This is no longer the case. These topics are now widely debated and discussed online and in other forums. And when members of the LDS Church come across information that is unfamiliar, they may feel surprise, fear, betrayal, or even anger. Respected LDS scholars have teamed with Laura Harris Hales to offer help in A Reason for Faith: Navigating LDS Doctrine and Church History. Together these authors have spent an average of 25 years researching these topics. Their depth of knowledge and faith enables them to share reliable details, perspective, and context to both LDS doctrine and Church history. The information in these essays can begin an exciting process of discovery for readers as they learn from a source they can trust. Each chapter is engaging and thought-provoking, providing an invaluable resource for both the merely curious and the seriously concerned. ISBN 978-1-9443-9401-1

On September 6, 1888, three Church history missionaries—Andrew Jenson, Edward Stevenson, and Joseph S. Black—left on a fact-finding mission to the Church’s historic sites in Missouri, Illinois, New York, Ohio, and Iowa, spending a majority of their time visiting the sacred sights of the Restoration. The observations they made were the subjects of a lengthy correspondence to the Deseret News. These letters were later compiled into a pamphlet entitled The Infancy of the Church. Their writings allowed the Saints in the west to vicariously experience the early days of the Restoration and reconnect with their pioneer ancestry. Some notable historical themes from their observations include a desire for the establishment and redemption of Zion and the promise that righteous Saints would be restored to their lands to build up Zion.

This book is the result of the symposium of twelve renowned scholars at BYU on Judeo-Christian parallels.

The striking comparisons, clarifications, and appraisals that result mark out ground for further scholarly research and provide a fascinating overview of these significant topics. ISBN 0-88494-358-5

Volume 4 i​n the Regional Studies Series Converts from Europe became the lifeblood of the young Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Eager emigrants carried with them the lofty dream of establishing Zion in the United States. Yet as time passed, the early vigor of conversion and emigration began to ebb, and the needs of members worldwide gave birth to a new approach—forming branches that would grow and spread throughout Europe. Those early pioneers thus began a tradition of faith that continues today despite the severe trials of two world wars, including the loss of many members’ lives and the evacuation of missionaries during World War II. These essays were written in honor of the one hundred fiftieth anniversary of the preaching of the gospel in Scandinavia and continental Europe by missionaries of the Church. ISBN 0-8425-2540-8

Volume 6 i​n the Regional Studies Series Ohio became the first gathering place for the Saints in this dispensation when the Lord declared, “A commandment I give unto the church, that it is expedient in me that they should assemble together at the Ohio” (D&C 37:3). Members of the Church in New York responded to this command by gathering in and around Kirtland, Ohio, where the Lord promised that He would give them His law and endow them power. Revelation was abundant and sometimes accompanied by the Lord’s presence. Almost half of the revelations in the Doctrine and Covenants were received in Ohio. Soon, stretching northward into Canada, the message of the restored gospel reached the homes of John Taylor, Mary Fielding, and other early converts. This book also tells the story of journalist and political activist William Lyon Mackenzie and his interest in the Saints. Contributors are Richard E. Bennett, David F. Boone, Richard O. Cowan, H. Dean Garrett, William Goddard, Steven C. Harper, Daniel H. Olsen, Craig James Ostler, Kip Sperry, Dennis A. Wright, and Helen Warner. ISBN 978-0-8425-2653-1

Freeman, Robert C., and Richard Neitzel Holzapfel, eds. Regional Studies in Latter-day Saint Church History: The British Isles. Provo, UT: Religious Studies Center, Brigham Young University, 2007.

Volume 7 i​n the Regional Studies Series History is replete with examples of the accomplishments of the first Latter-day Saint missionaries to England. Prophesying of the importance of the missionaries’ success, Joseph Smith said that their work would be the means of bringing salvation to the Lord’s latter-day Church. In 1837, Latter-day Saint missionaries from America set foot in Great Britain seeking converts to the Mormon faith. Isaac Russell was one of the seven missionaries who served on that historic first mission to England. Elder Russell, unquestionably a successful missionary, later fell into disrepute during those tumultuous times in Missouri in the late 1830s. Seventh in the collector series, Regional Studies in Latter-day Saint Church History: The British Isles is a collection of scholarly papers having to do with the Latter-day Saint experience in Great Britain. Contributors include Scott C. Esplin, Arnold K. Garr, Carol Wilkinson, Craig James Ostler, Clyde J. Williams, Richard E. Bennett, Jeffrey L. Jensen, Mary Jane Woodger, Jerome M. Perkins, Alan K. Parrish, David F. Boone, Richard O. Cowan, and Alexander L. Baugh with an introduction by Paul H. Peterson. Some members do not realize the twin challenges the British Saints faced of dealing with the disruption of life due to the constant flux of emigrating fellow Saints and the almost constant harassment of fellow countrymen who resented their religion. A chapter is devoted to this topic and its explanation. Elder George A. Smith’s efforts as well as those of David O. McKay are assessed. This volume includes a photographic essay and a discussion of the restoration of the first Latter-day Saint chapel at Gadfield Elm in Worcestershire. Also included is a dialogue regarding the Titanic disaster and its impact on Latter-day Saints. ISBN 978-0-8425-2672-2

Cannon, Donald Q., and Arnold K. Garr, eds. Regional Studies in Latter-day Saint Church History: The New England States. Provo, UT: Religious Studies Center, Brigham Young University, 2004.

Volume 5 i​n the Regional Studies Series New England. The name suggests redcoats and ragged patriots. Yet this area did more than give rise to American freedom; it gave birth to the Restoration. Here, prophets and apostles were born to guide the Church—leaders such as Joseph and Hyrum Smith, Brigham Young, and Heber C. Kimball. Twelve essays take us on a journey through time. We go back to an era when early Apostles canvassed New England to elect Joseph Smith president of the United States. A photo essay offers views of a Mayflowerreplica and of Church history sites.

Neilson, Reid L., Steven C. Harper, Craig K. Manscill, and Mary Jane Woodger, eds. Regional Studies in Latter-day Saint Church History: The Pacific Isles. Provo, UT: Religious Studies Center, Brigham Young University, 2008.

Volume 8 i​n the Regional Studies Series When most Latter-day Saints conjure up images of Church history, their minds are filled with pictures of the sacred sites and peoples of New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Missouri, Illinois, and Utah. But years before Brigham Young declared the Salt Lake Valley to be the site of future gathering in 1847, Church members had already pushed even further west into the Pacific Basin frontier. William Barratt made his way to Australia on a mission in 1840. Addison Pratt and his evangelizing companions arrived in the Society Islands in 1844, the year Joseph Smith was martyred in Illinois. And during the early 1850s, when Saints in the Utah Territory were clawing for their physical survival in American’s Great Basin, missionaries enjoyed proselyting success among the native Sandwich Islanders in today’s Hawaii. Clearly, the Pacific Isles have played a major—and early—role in the unfolding of the Restoration. In preparation for the 2008 BYU Church History and Doctrine Department’s regional studies tour to the Pacific Isles, faculty members were invited to research and write on the peoples and places of Polynesia, Micronesia, Melanesia, and Australasia. Topics include the introduction of the gospel to Tubuai, the influence of Jonathan Napela in Hawaii, the receptivity of Tongans to the gospel, the Oahu Tabernacle, the contributions of educational missionaries to Kiribati, the Mormon Tabernacle Choir’s performances in the Pacific Islands, and the destruction fire in the Apia Samoa Temple, among others. Contributors are Reid L. Neilson, Arnold K. Garr, Fred E. Woods, Michael A. Goodman, Matthew O. Richardson, R. Devan Jensen, Dennis A. Wright, Megan E. Warner, Cynthia Doxey, Lloyd D. Newell, Richard O. Cowan, Scott C. Esplin, and Kip Sperry. ISBN 978-0-6152-0037-8

In this volume, twenty-one prominent social scientists address the complex set of relationships that emerge between religion and the family. They show that increased knowledge of how religions and families influence each other sheds light on vaguely understood processes of social change and sharpens questions asked about the church and family influence on such things as marriage, divorce, abortion, birth control, children, sex roles, authority patterns, and belief systems. The authors discuss the religion and family connection in a variety of settings: Catholic, Protestant, Jewish, Mormon, Amish, Ireland, and Middletown, U.S.A., among others. ISBN 0-8849-4636-3

Sweat, Anthony. Repicturing the Restoration: New Art to Expand Our Understanding. Provo, UT: Religious Studies Center, Brigham Young University, 2020.

While existing artwork that portrays the Restoration is rich and beautiful, until now many key events in Latter-day Saint history have surprisingly never been depicted to accurately represent important events of the historical record. The purpose of this volume is to produce paintings of some of the underrepresented events in order to expand our understanding of the Restoration. Each image includes a richly researched historical background, some artistic insights into the painting’s composition, an application section providing one way this history may inform our present faith, and an analysis section offering potent questions that can be considered for further discussion. Through these new paintings, artist, author, and Professor Anthony Sweat takes readers through a timeline history of pivotal events and revelations of the early Restoration. This book is not just a wonderful art book, it is also a pedagogical book using art as a launching pad to learn, evaluate, apply, and discuss important aspects of Latter-day Saint history and doctrine as readers repicture the Restoration.

We have long heard of the “three R’s” of elementary education—reading, ”riting, and ”rithmetic. Similarly, a set of interrelated doctrines might be referred to as the three R’s of the Book of Mormon—restoration, redemption, and resurrection. In fact, we might add a fourth R, repentance, which is essential for the first two to function. Material for this chapter is drawn primarily from two experiences recorded in the book of Alma. First, Alma and Amulek confront a group of antagonistic lawyers in the wicked city of Ammonihah. Amulek’s response to Zeezrom’s hostile questioning is recorded in chapter 11. Then, as Alma the Younger neared the end of his life, he took time to give instructions to his three sons. Notice how he spent the most time with, and gave particularly profound teachings to, his wayward son Corianton—recorded in chapters 39–42. Apparently Alma agreed with the principle President Boyd K. Packer later annunciated—that “the study of the doctrines of the gospel will improve behavior quicker than a study of behavior will improve behavior.”

Bolton, Andrew, and Casey Paul Griffiths, eds. Restorations: Scholars in Dialogue from Community of Christ and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Provo, UT: Religious Studies Center, Brigham Young University, 2022.

This book contains reflections from two groups of scholars who trace their beginnings to the early Saints who built the Kirtland Temple. These scholars come from the two largest branches of the Restoration movement, Community of Christ and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, who have often found themselves on the opposite sides of many issues. This book is filled with honest, frank conversations between people of the two faiths but also collegiality and friendship. Centered on twelve themes, this dialogue is about bringing together informed scholars from the two churches working together, with goodwill, to accurately understand each other.

Newel Knight (1800–1847) was one of the very earliest Latter-day Saint converts and maintained a lifelong friendship and close association with Joseph Smith Jr. The journals of Newel Knight are part of a handful of essential manuscript sources that every historian of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints relies on to understand its early history. He was one of a few early converts to provide an eyewitness account of the founding events in Church history, including the rise and fall of the Church in Missouri, miraculous healings, legal battles, the construction and dedication of the Kirtland Temple, the first marriage performed by Joseph Smith Jr., the martyrdom, and the cold, difficult exodus from Illinois to Winter Quarters. Knight’s history has always been a difficult source to use because it was never published in one volume until now. This book brings together his various accounts into one place to tell the story of the rise of the Latter-day Saints. ISBN 978-1-9443-9483-7
