Summary:

The Pearl of Greatest Price narrates the history of Mormonism's fourth volume of scripture, canonized in 1880. The authors track its predecessors, describe its several components, and assess their theological significance within the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Four principal sections are discussed, along with attendant controversies associated with each. The Book of Moses purports to be a Mosaic narrative missing from the biblical version of Genesis. Too little treated in the scholarship on Mormonism, these chapters, produced only months after the Book of Mormon was published, actually contain the theological nucleus of Latter-day Saint doctrines as well as a virtual template for the Restoration Joseph Smith was to effect. In The Pearl of Greatest Price, the author covers three principal parts that are the focus of many of the controversies engulfing Mormonism today. These parts are The Book of Abraham, The Book of Moses, and The Joseph Smith History. Most controversial of all is the Book of Abraham, a production that arose out of a group of papyri Smith acquired, along with four mummies, in 1835. Most of the papyri disappeared in the great Chicago Fire, but surviving fragments have been identified as Egyptian funerary documents. This has created one of the most serious challenges to Smith's prophetic claims the LDS church has faced. LDS scholars, however, have developed several frameworks for vindicating the inspiration of the resulting narrative and Smith's calling as a prophet. The author attempts to make sense of Smith's several, at times divergent, accounts of his First Vision, one of which is canonized as scripture. He also assesses the creedal nature of Smith's "Articles of Faith," in the context of his professed anti-creedalism. In sum, this study chronicles the volume's historical legacy and theological indispensability to the Latter-day Saint tradition, as well as the reasons for its resilience and future prospects in the face of daunting challenges.

2000 ans d'histoire d'une famille juive: de cette aube de l'an 70 où le scribe Abraham quitte Jérusalem en flammes à ce jour de 1943 où l'imprimeur Abraham Halter meurt sous les ruines du ghetto de Varsovie, cent générations se transmettent le livre familial, mémoire de l'exil. Jusqu'à Marek Halter, le " dernier scribe ", qui, aujourd'hui, recrée pour nous cette grande aventure. Une œuvre exemplaire, chargée du souffle de la vérité et de l'âme de l'humanité. "Enfin un vrai livre de réconciliation." Jean-Paul II "Marek Halter nous rappelle la longue lignée des meuniers juifs à Narbonne, vignerons à Troyes, scribes à Strasbourg, imprimeurs à Paris pendant la Révolution. Il vient d'ouvrir les premières pages d'un grand livre." François Mitterrand "Une histoire de souffrance et d'espoir, de désir et de volonté, de lutte et d'accomplissement." Shimon Peres "J'aime cette saga qui mène aux sources du judaïsme français. Popularisant ce qui a été la vie des communautés juives au sein de la société française, La Mémoire d'Abraham apporte une contribution très riche à la réconciliation judéo-chrétienne." Simone Veil "Voici donc un événement. Il paraît simple, évident, frais, presque naïf. Et c'est un tournant terrible. Sans plainte. Sans pathétique. Animé, de part en part, d'une joie et d'une confiance d'enfant. Un souffle est là." Philippe Sollers

Summary:

Just as a growing interest in millennialism at the turn of this century has rejuvenated religious debate and questions concerning the fate of the world, so did Mormonism develop from millennial enthusiasm early in the nineteenth century. Joseph Smith, the founder of Mormonism, and a provocative, even controversial figure in history, declared that he had been given the authority to restore the true church in the latter days. The primary source of Smith's latter-day revelation is The Book of Mormon, and to fully understand his role as the founder of the Mormon faith, one must also understand The Book of Mormon and how it came to be. Unfortunately, the literature about Joseph Smith and The Book of Mormon is permeated with contradiction and controversy. In the first edition of this impressive work, David Persuitte provided a significant amount of revealing biographical information about Smith that resolved many of the controversies concerning his character. He also presented an extensive comparative analysis positing that the probable conceptual source for The Book of Mormon was a book entitled View of the Hebrews; or the Tribes of Israel in America, which was written by an early New England minister named Ethan Smith. Now in an expanded and revised second edition incorporating many new findings relating to the origin of The Book of Mormon, Mr. Persuitte’s book continues to shed much new light on the path Joseph Smith took toward founding the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Summary:

This book is designed to help you better understand the teachings of Mormonism. It called a "crash course" because it covers a lot of ground. While this overview is comprehensive, all the chapters flow together to give you a good insight into LDS teaching and practices. All of us have Mormon friends, coworkers or neighbors. How do we effectively share our faith with them? The first step is to try to understand their teaching and way of thinking. You need to try to understand their world and way of life. Then, after establishing a relationship of friendship and trust, and if the right opportunity arises, we can discuss what we believe about God, Jesus, and the Bible. This book also presents an overview of the basic teachings of the Bible, especially as it relates to specific doctrines of the LDS. If you want to share your faith, you must first be well grounded in the Christian faith. Numerous passages are given to show what the Scriptures teach about God, humanity, law, gospel, the Bible and Jesus Christ, the Son of God. Please note that these Bible verses are not given so that you might bash a Mormon over the head with them. The LDS are very offended by "Bible-bashing" (as they call it). This is when a Christian starts quoting Bible passages to prove that Mormon theology is all wrong. This never works well. A Mormon will take this as a personal attack on themselves and their church. Their defenses go up and they immediately shut down. They feel like we are using the Bible to bash their faith and integrity. Many well-meaning people use this confrontational approach of trying to argue doctrine with members of the LDS church (especially those missionaries that might visit your home). However, it rarely works. In fact, it does more harm than good. The discussions of the Bible verses in this book seek to deepen your understanding of the Christian faith. You need to fully understand and appreciate the good news of the gospel. You need to have a living and vibrant relationship with the Living God. Appreciate the incredible power of God's grace and the forgiveness of sins that comes through the cross and resurrection of our Lord. Realize that God the Father loves you unconditionally. Experience for yourself that "peace which passes all understanding." Then, you can be prepared to discuss and explain theological points in a loving and winsome manner, when that opportunity arises. This is the best way to talk about God with your LDS friends. As Peter tells us, "But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope you have. But do this with gentleness and respect."
