Description

This is a comprehensive book about the LDS temple. It examines in detail the doctrines and practices which surround that holy building, and their implications for the individual Church member. Part one offers the Lord''s invitation: "Come to the temple." It sets forth the requirements for attendance: preparation through worthiness, and the attitude and behavior appropriate for those attending that holy place on the first and all subsequent occasions. Part two deals with the ancient temples then turns to the central human figure in the work of the temple- Elijah the Prophet, who anciently held the keys relative to the sealing power of the priesthood. Malachi''s prophecy and the human tradition about Elijah''s return in the latter days are impressively set forth. Elijah''s return and all that it means for the happiness and salvation of mankind are the themes of parts three and four. Following early Restoration scenes, here is the Kirtland Temple built at great personal sacrifice. Dedicated, it fulfills a major purpose in the glorious visions of April 3, 1836, the Savior himself introducing three heavenly beings who then convey priesthood keys. One of these is Elijah. Thereafter the revelations progressively develop the doctrine of temple work for both the living and the dead; under divine direction temple ceremonies are introduced and participants flock to the Nauvoo Temple; through President Wilford Woodruff the supporting work of lineage linking is clarified by revelation; and the spirit of Elijah is manifest both in and out of the Church as genealogical research and temple work blossom, temples multiply, and those beyond the veil assist those involved in the work here. The endowment with its sacred covenants and its symbolic instruction, the sealing ordinance, and other temple ceremonies are discussed sensitively and authoritatively. Written direct to the reader, this is an outstanding book on a subject crucial to every child of God.

I am a convert to the LDS religion. The reference has helped me in what to expect in first time experience in the temple. The temple is God''s house on earth, just like in the bible when the Israelites left Egypt and fled to the promise land. The presences of God in the Ark of the Covenant helped the Israelites know that God was with them. When they stopped during there journey the presences of God what with them day and night. The Priest was to be the mediator between God and Man. The temple was the home of God and kept guard over the Israelites. The LDS Temple serves the same purpose and we are to go to the temple to worship and praise God. The attitude must be respectful and holy. You are in the presences of God while in the temple and must show respect. The reference gives you information on how to conduct yourself in the presences of God''s holy Temple. It gives you background information on how the temples were started and some of what is to be expected of you during your session.

I ordered this book because I love it and had been reading a borrowed copy. I ripped the cover and wanted to switch out covers with the new copy. The problem is that the book I received is not the one I thought I was ordering. The image of the book advertised on Amazon is for ISBN 0-88494-411-5. The actual book they are selling is 978-0-88494-411-9, a Refreshed edition. The original has lovely illustrations and is easier on the eye to read. The Resfreshed edition has glaring white pages. I am disappointed with Amazon.
