Over the past few years, Google searches for “anxiety” have increased by 50% and news headlines state that worry, stress, and depression are on the rise. Have you noticed this increase in your life or the lives of those you love? These challenges may be spreading, but they are not new. The scriptures speak of those who were “depressed,” “greatly afraid,” “worried,” and experiencing “great anxiety.” The scriptures also tell us that the solution to these struggles is found in Jesus Christ, “the founder of peace” (Mosiah 15:18).
Christ wants us to feel peace, hope, and even joy—and He alone is the source of true and everlasting peace. Through scriptural insights, personal experiences, modern psychological research, and illustrations, The Founder of Our Peace offers Christ-centered patterns to help us combat these challenges and invite greater peace into our lives today. New understandings of powerful scriptural phrases and stories will deepen your hope in the Savior. You will find strength in Jesus Christ to help you and those you love walk the path of peace.
Between Gethsemane and the empty Garden Tomb stands the Savior's sacrifice on the cross. In this in—depth study of Christ's gift from Golgotha, author John Hilton III provides insight to help us in our quest to "attain a perfect knowledge of [Christ]" and come closer to Him (Jacob 4:12). This book explores questions like "How can studying Christ's Crucifixion increase our appreciation for his Atonement?", "Why do some Church members avoid the cross—because of Church doctrine or cultural practice?" and "How can the Savior's atoning sacrifice help us find relief from pain and suffering?" By providing answers to these and many other questions, Hilton guides readers to see Calvary in new and powerful ways.
Through scriptures, quotes, and stories, Considering the Cross shows that prophets, both ancient and modern, have taught that the Savior's Crucifixion is a central part of our redemption from sin. What the cross means for Christians in general and Latter-day Saints in particular has sometimes varied, but one meaning is constant—Christ was crucified for the sins of the world because of His love for us. Jesus is both the living Christ and, as manifested through His death, the loving Christ.
Above all, this book is about finding increasing peace and happiness by coming closer to Him. More deeply considering Christ's sacrifice on Calvary can help us better understand the Savior's perfect love for us. Jesus bore our burdens so He can lighten our loads. He experienced pain so He can offer us peace, and He suffered for our sins so we could be free to follow and become like Him.

Youth and adults alike will appreciate this accessible discussion of scholarly evidences clearly demonstrating that the Book of Mormon could never have been invented by Joseph Smith. Evidences include “wordprints,” “witnesses,” “chiasmus,” “Hebraisms,” and other discoveries by modern scholars that can strengthen one's testimony of the Book of Mormon. Ultimately, however: “The most important evidence that the Book of Mormon is a book written by ancient prophets,” says John Hilton III, “is the feeling I get from the Holy Ghost when I diligently study it. You can have this same feeling too.”
“Joseph Smith once prophesied that the world will prove by circumstantial evidence that the Book of Mormon is true. Has that prophecy been fulfilled? This engaging book gives you the basic facts and then invites you to be the judge.” — John W. Welch, Professor of Law and Founder of FARMS.
