By entering into covenants with His people, God forges vital connections that allow Him to guide and bless His children in incredible ways. Latter-day Saints have long been encouraged to stay on the covenant path—but what is that path, and how do we stay the course? In God Will Prevail: Ancient Covenants, Modern Blessings, and the Gathering of Israel, BYU Professor of Religion Dr. Kerry Muhlestein encourages readers to take hold of God’s promise to gather His covenant people by recognizing the connection between covenant making and the eternal and transformative love of the Savior.
Discover the obligations and blessings of making and keeping sacred covenants, as outlined in the standard works, with insights on topics ranging from temple work and family history to covenant language, the gathering of Israel, and the equalizing power of Christ’s Atonement. With clarity and hope, this groundbreaking book speaks to this powerful truth: promised blessings and gatherings are available to all who truly seek to be covenant keepers.
Joseph Smith's First Vision is the best documented vision of God in the history of the world. Yet, because the details of the vision are spread over nine different accounts that vary in emphasis and some finer points, many people do not know all they could about this remarkable and world-changing experience.
Kerry Muhlestein, professor of Ancient Scripture at Brigham Young University, presents a faithful, harmonized version of the First Vision story to show how each of the various accounts might share select aspects of the vision yet all be consistent with the actual event experienced by Jospeh Smith. As the Prophet recorded or shared his remarkable vision, he emphasized different details depending on the audience and circumstances at the time. All nine accounts—four firsthand and five secondhand—are combined into one compelling story in this retelling of Joseph Smith's incomparable vision. Also included are the original accounts in their entirety so that readers can feel for themselves the powerful witness of the Prophet Joseph Smith. Strengthen your testimony of this singular, foundational event that would lead to the Restoration of Christ's Church upon the earth.
We know the power of God’s love is eternal and all encompassing—but how can God truly love the sinner? The temptations of the world are powerful, and the inevitability that we will all make mistakes is sure—yet the truth of God’s love for His children remains unchanged. No matter how often His sheep stray from the flock, God is waiting with open arms to receive them back—a fact powerfully evidenced in the pages of the Old Testament. Replete with tales of individuals making and overcoming mistakes, this sacred book of scripture demonstrates the reality that God never stops loving His children. In Return unto Me, BYU professor Dr. Kerry Muhlestein encourages readers to discover the eternal principles hidden in the pages of the Old Testament and come to understand this important truth: our Father in Heaven is a God of love, and He will patiently guide His lost sheep back into the fold. Listen to His pleading voice, feel His guiding hand, and return unto Him.
