"As we remember and honor the Prophet Joseph Smith, my heart reaches out to him in gratitude. He was a good, honest, humble, intelligent, and courageous young man with a heart of gold and an unshaken faith in God. He had integrity. In response to his humble prayer, the heavens opened again. Joseph Smith had actually seen a vision. He knew it, and he knew that God knew it, and he could not deny it (see Joseph Smith—History 1:25). Through his work and sacrifice, I now have a true understanding of our Heavenly Father and His Son, our Redeemer and Savior, Jesus Christ, and I can feel the power of the Holy Ghost and know of Heavenly Father’s plan for us, His children. For me, these are truly the fruits of the First Vision."

--Dieter F. Uchtdorf, "Precious Fruits of the First Vision", Liahona, Feb 2009, 2–6

Joseph Smith Papers: Revelations & Translations-Vol. 1 - FALL 2009
Richard L. Bushman, Dean C. Jesse & Ronald K. Esplin

Great Father's Day Gift!

The Joseph Smith Papers puts into one comprehensive collection the writings attributed to this religious leader, offering information and insight about Joseph Smith, early Mormonism, and nineteenth-century American religion.

The next volume to release (late summer 2009) is the first volume of the Revelations and Translations series. It will present a transcription and photographic reproduction of each page of the two manuscript revelation books used by early scribes of Joseph Smith. This unprecedented access—the first publication of one of the revelation books—allows readers to own some of the earliest copies of the revelation manuscripts, including those used to print the Book of Commandments and 1835 Doctrine & Covenants.

The book will include an introductory essay with the balance of the book showing reproductions of the manuscripts. Owning a copy will be like having access to hand-written documents of historical significance in your own home or office.

Pre-Order Now and download a printable gift certificate. This will make the perfect Father's Day gift. The book will ship in September. This offer is good for two days only, Thursday June 18 - Saturday June 20.
