Most Glorious of All

You can now order your copy of R. Lane Wright’s new book, Most Glorious of All.  This extensive work covers the principle of baptism, early interpretations of the practice, as well as the theology and history of baptism for the dead.

Also discussed is the effect baptism for the dead had on the early saints who practiced it, as well as “rebaptism” and “baptism for healing.”

The section; “For the Youth of the Church,” is a great primer for those going to the Temple to participate in baptisms for the dead for the first time.

It is thoroughly documented, and includes many images seen here for the first time.

Theodore Turley Commemoration

You need to install or upgrade Flash Player to view this content, install or upgrade by clicking here.
We were excited to be a part of the Theodore Turley commemoration in Nauvoo, IL on June 24, 2014.

Theodore Turley was the first Latter-day Saint to build a home in Nauvoo (then Commerce).

This commemoration featured a talk by Susan Easton Black (Durrant) and featured speaker Richard E. Turley, jr (Assistant Church Historian and Theodore Turley descendant).

The Nauvoo Press was excited to provide reprints of the 1840 Book of Mormon, and the 1844 Doctrine and Covenants to Brother Turley in appreciation of his visit.

We’re proud to share the video here, and extend our  thanks to Sharon Gray and Natalie Tanner for making it available to us.

Of particular interest to us are early church periodicals, or books that either have not been available, or in some cases only to collectors willing to spend thousands of dollars for an original.

We are pleased to have available all the early versions of the Book of Mormon. Our Early Book of Mormon Series features the 1830 (Palmyra), 1837 (Kirtland), 1840 (Nauvoo), 1841 (Liverpool) and 1879 (Orson Pratt Footnote) Editions.

We have also completed the 1844 Doctrine and Covenants (the Edition originally printed in Nauvoo).

otherwise).
