Sponsored by BYU Studies—The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is publishing a new official history in four volumes. The first volume, “Saints: The Standard of Truth: 1815-1846” is being released today.
A recent book by Philip Jenkins looks at a tumultuous time in history that contains lessons for believers trying to navigate today’s religious landscape.
“Crucible of Faith: The Ancient Revolution That Made Our Modern Religious World” (Basic Books, $19.99) covers a time period of about two centuries prior to the birth of Christ to a half-century after his death.
So much happened in such a short amount of time such that Jenkins refers to it as a crucible in which different world faiths were shaped.
SALT LAKE CITY — On Feb. 18, Hallmark Channel will give viewers a late Valentine’s Day gift in the form of the season five premiere of “When Calls the Heart” — a rare television show that answers many viewers’ yearning for family values in entertainment.
In Feb. 2018, I had the opportunity to interview Alfonso Moreno for “10 questions.”
Moreno has a long career in the entertainment industry that includes work on NCIS, The Practice, The Guardian – and many others. He is currently the showrunner for Hallmark Channel’s family-friendly hit, When Calls the Heart.
