Publisher's Summary

By divine design, rites, rituals, and ordinances are filled with symbolic meaning intended to help us better understand God’s Plan. If we do not understand the symbols, we cannot fully understand our covenants. In this new book, author Alonzo L. Gaskill presents divers ancient and modern rituals which are illustrative of symbols and practices Latter-day Saints may recognize. The ordinances of the Gospel are both the vehicle by which we make covenants and also a means by which God seeks to teach us. This truly unique book will guide you to a richer understanding of, and appreciation for, what you hold sacred.

For every member Before Endowments

I am 66 years old and left the
church due to my own lack of understanding of what I was doing and why. Now in my return I can not read enough , hungry to hear all that is available for me. I feel like a child newly being Baptized. I am so grateful for the wisdom of Alonzo. Only wish he spoke more slowly but I am grateful for rewind.

I learned so much!

I’m not in favor of authors reading their own books, but Gaskill does a pretty good job. The thing that really bugged me was all the “quote” “end quote” things. He did his best to minimize the distraction, but there for a while my skin was crawling! However the content overcame the discomfort. I can’t wait to get to the temple and look for all these symbols and more. It is a fascinating subject!
