Publisher's Summary

In 1820, a young farm boy in search of truth has a vision of God the Father and Jesus Christ. Three years later, an angel guides him to an ancient record buried in a hill near his home. With God’s help, he translates the record and organizes the Savior’s church in the latter days. Soon others join him, accepting the invitation to become Saints through the Atonement of Jesus Christ.

But opposition and violence follow those who defy old traditions to embrace restored truths. The women and men who join the church must choose whether or not they will stay true to their covenants, establish Zion, and proclaim the gospel to a troubled world.

The Standard of Truth is the first book in Saints, a new, four-volume narrative history of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Fast-paced, meticulously researched, Saints recounts true stories of Latter-day Saints across the globe and answers the Lord’s call to write history “for the good of the church, and for the rising generations” (Doctrine and Covenants 69:8).

My new favorite book! I'm excited about volume 2!

I love true stories but this one is amazing, so many details I didn't know. A real page turner! I think I'll enjoy it even more the second time.

I hope Oprah reads it.

Sad

My heart aches for what seems to be incredible unnecessary suffering. Plural marriage, and especially the circumstances and the way it was carried out was one of the sharper instances. But so much of the book just made me so sad. Like watching a movie about the titanic. To comfort my soul, and feel peace, I will turn to the sermon on the mount. Would that the church that claims to be the restored church would remember the living Christ and what he taught at least as much as "modern revelation". Jesus said, "the kingdom of God is within you." Remembering the living Jesus and what he taught with his own voice and life brings me peace. Thanks for reading.
