Product Description

In volume two, with mobs threatening to drive them from their homes, thousands of Latter-day Saints flee Nauvoo, their gathering place for the past seven years. Following Brigham Young and the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, they travel west across prairie and plain, trusting in God to prepare a home for them beyond the towering peaks of the Rocky Mountains.

Finding a new home is only the beginning of their story. In their quest to serve God and build Zion, the exiled Saints struggle against new obstacles and greater persecutions. Stalwart women and men work together to forge communities where the faithful can gather near temples established for the glory of God and the redemption of the living and the dead. At the same time, hundreds of missionaries journey to distant lands to invite others to come to Christ and help establish Zion.

Saints - Volume 2

I am a student of Church history and there is so much content in this book that is new material. The book is well-written and engaging. My wife and I are reading the book aloud to each other each evening and it is inspirational!

Saints, vol 2

1. These first two volumes were easy reading ("drawing on techniques of popular storytelling") and are guaranteed to please the "first-time" reader of Church history ("a narrative history written for a general audience") by giving them chronological accounts of the many concurrent events the early Saints experienced.
2. I have over thirteen-hundred Church books and journals, including more than a hundred books on Church history, and am a numbers, dates, detail-oriented, underline, write in the margins, tab pages with sticky-notes... kinda guy; am not too interested in touchy-feely vignettes ("lay awake crying" / "looked up at the sky, saw the countless stars of the Milky Way, and felt homesick" / "her evenings were often filled with dinners, parties, and concerts" / "she would wear a red geranium on her dress" / etc.).
3. The end-notes testify of the extreme effort the researchers and writers took to be accurate, so when a position / policy statement is written, I can be sure that consideration in the appropriate words to use considered the many criticisms previously made by critics and apostates ("the volume rarely addresses challenges in or to the historical record in the text itself"). Even so, I would have liked the end-notes to have included additional information regarding each incident, but only a couple of times did the end-notes add anything to "the rest of the story."
4. No real complaints; always glad to read "official" Church publications, am grateful for the Church's effort to clarify and declare, and I'll be happy to purchase and read the remaining two volumes.
